Amazon is running an early Prime Day deal on AmazonFresh, its grocery delivery service



If you've ever made the rookie mistake of picking up groceries on a weeknight in Manhattan, you're already familiar with lines of tired adults snaking through aisles, ransacked shelves, and a long walk back to an apartment under the weight of a week's worth of food.

Even if you're not living in a fifth-floor walk-up, the humdrum of looking for parking and ambling through temperature-controlled aisles under fluorescent light for an hour may be enough to make you consider getting groceries delivered to your doorstep.
That's exactly what you'll get from Amazon's grocery delivery service, AmazonFresh. It's like a digital grocery store - complete with fresh produce, perishables, favorites from your local stores, and Whole Foods 365 brand products - all of which you can have delivered to your doorstep. Prices are low, and orders over $35-$50 (depending on zip code) get free shipping.
