The New Amazon Prime Perk You Should Know About
The online retailer is offering a new delivery service in select U.S. cities.
In addition to same-day delivery, streaming services, and other lesser known Amazon Prime perks, the online retail giant is now offering a meal delivery service in select U.S. cities.
Starting Tuesday, Prime members in New York City can order food from more than 350 local restaurants and those in Dallas have a choice of about 60. Throughout the course of the year, Amazon restaurant delivery has rolled out in other U.S. cities, including Baltimore, Austin, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Diego.
Menu items are priced the same as they would be at the restaurant, delivery is guaranteed within an hour, and diners can track the status of their delivery through the app or the website. The only catch? You must be a prime member, which costs $99 per year.
The service is part of a program Amazon calls Prime Now, which also delivers goods from a handful of local stores and offers two-hour delivery for select household items from Amazon’s own roster of products.
