Fight And Waive Amazon Fresh Delivery Fees With the Help of DoNotPay

Amazon Fresh is a grocery delivery service offered through Amazon as an alternative to grocery shopping in person. It has become increasingly popular over the past two years, with its grocery sales tripling year-over-year from 2019 to 2020. Anyone with an Amazon Prime subscription can use the Amazon Fresh delivery service, and there are also over 15 physical locations where you can physically shop or pick up your groceries as well.

The ability to have your groceries delivered to your home has never been more convenient. However, delivery services often come with increased prices and hidden fees. Considering an Amazon Prime subscriber already pays a premium for their membership, it's unfair to have to pay a fee for grocery delivery services on top of that. This guide can help you understand the breakdown of and learn how to fight and waive fees.

How Much Does Amazon Fresh Charge Per Transaction?

Anyone can use without a subscription, but the cost of shipping adds up quickly if you use it often enough. If you regularly shop through Amazon, paying for a subscription can be well worth the monthly fee. Current Amazon Prime fees are:

$12.99 per month (plus taxes)This fee covers shipping of Prime items as well as Prime Video.
$119 per year (plus tax)By paying for a year's membership upfront, you save about $37.
$8.99 per month (plus taxes) for Prime VideoIf you are solely interested in Prime Video and don't use Amazon Prime for shipping, you can opt just to have access to their movie and TV selection.

Amazon Prime subscribers also have access to Amazon Fresh, which allows them to purchase their groceries online and opt to have them delivered to their homes or to pick them up from an Amazon Fresh physical location. If you spend more than $35 on a single transaction, there is no additional fee for delivery. However, if you spend less than $35 and opt for home delivery, there are fees to keep in mind. They are:

  • $5 for a two-hour delivery window
  • $8 for a one-hour delivery window

Additionally, Amazon Fresh introduced a $9.95 fee in late 2021 for customers who place orders through Whole Foods. These fees are paid in addition to your Amazon Prime membership fees. Many people don't realize that they have the right to appeal these Amazon Fresh delivery fees, but the following can help you understand the best way to go about it.
