One reader uses searching tricks to save BIG on Amazon Fresh groceries.

Have you ever used Amazon to buy groceries? If you’re a fan of Amazon Fresh, there are a few tricks to get cheaper groceries. This week’s Happy Friday reader, Holly, is sharing how she saves up to 90% on items. One of the ways she does this is by searching for items at the right time of the month.💰 Here’s how she’s scoring the biggest discounts!

“I love grocery shopping on Amazon Fresh. I will sort from lowest to highest after searching something basic like “snack.”

“I usually spend around $150 and save 50-90 percent on items. It’s an amazing way to shop.”

“They have deals all the time, but I noticed shopping at the end of the month, or the beginning is the best (like the last few days or first few days of the month). I think that’s due to inventory, but just assuming.🙂”

We’re loving those prices, Holly! We appreciate you sharing these searching tips with us! We will search in the beginning and end of the month next time we shop and make sure to sort from low to high! Thanks for helping our community find the best deals! 🥰

    I used to do Amazon Fresh all the time, but since they have upped the minimum to $150 I haven’t used it. I wasn’t spending that much before hand either on average about $100 and I tip well

    We live near an Amazon Fresh store. I can no longer do the pickup or delivery option with the $150 threshold. The most frustrating thing is there’s NO way to know what the prices will be in the store. The price listed online is not the same as in the store for many products. It would make sense for them to list both prices online so you know whether it’s worth it to go into the store. They will NOT honor website prices in brick and mortar stores.

      I’m able to see in-store prices in the Amazon app. When browsing Amazon Fresh groceries, just select “In-Store” instead of “Delivery or pickup” on top. And you can browse different store locations to check prices and if it’s in stock.

    I live near an Amazon Fresh store and I love it! Usually, the weekly flyers have coupons such as 20% off groceries $50+
