If you’re in the market this week for coffee, tea, and other random beverages, maybe check out the grocery side of Prime Day.
Even with the closure of its restaurant delivery service, Amazon has big food ambitions — including opening ”dozens” of brick-and-mortar grocery stores, in addition to its Whole Foods footprint and Amazon Go store, but also scaling online with Amazon Fresh, meal kits, and private label brands like Happy Belly and Wickedly Prime.
Which means a bunch of that stuff is on sale for Prime Day 2019, including stuff from third-party brands big and small, to Amazon’s own private label brands, to Whole Foods. And a lot of the deals are on beverages, weirdly?
For one, there’s all the packaged food. As a baseline, you can get $10 off Prime Pantry orders of $40 or more with the promo code PANTRY. From there, there’s a ton of random stuff on sale — much of it coffee, tea, sparkling water, energy drinks, and other weirdly specific beverages, like Starbucks bottled lattes, MiO Energy “water enhancer”, Spindrift seltzer, Hiball Energy sparkling water, LIFEWTR purified bottled water, powder packets of Propel, and Soylent.
There are also deals on lots of random snack-y foods, the sort of things you buy and stash in the depths of your pantry, like GoMacro bars, Quaker instant grits, Planters cashew packets, Life cereal, and a ton of Rx Bar products.
Then there are the private label items: Prime Day includes deals on products like Wickedly Prime plantain chips, Happy Belly nuts, and Solimo tea and lemonade mixes — all Amazon-created brands. There’s also food under the Amazon Fresh brand, including (surprise) more coffee, in K-cup form, ground, or whole beans. You can also use the promo code FRESH15 for a $15 discount off your first Amazon Fresh order (for minimum $35 orders) through the end of Prime Day, on July 16.
As for Whole Foods, shoppers who spend $10 at Whole Foods will receive a $10 Amazon credit to use on Prime Day. A bunch of random food items will also be on sale, including sockeye salmon fillets for $9.99 a pound and two for $6 Ben & Jerry’s pints. Nothing staggering, but basically, it can’t hurt to pop into a Whole Foods store on the Monday and Tuesday of Prime Day.
