Amazon Takes On Grocery Delivery With Oz Subscription Service
Amazon Australia has launched its new ‘Subscribe and Save’ program, enabling automates scheduled repeat free deliveries on products customers routinely buy with the benefit of a 10% discount.
In a move seen to put the squeeze on supermarkets like Coles and Woolworths, from today, customers will see a ‘Subscribe and Save’ icon appear next to eligible products on the Amazon Australia website.
Thousands of everyday household essentials are now available as part of the service, including pantry food and drinks, pet supplies, vitamins and supplements, beauty products, and much more.
Brands that are already part of the service includes Carman’s, Coca Cola, Fairy, Heinz, Huggies, L’Oreal, Moccona, Omo, Optimum Nutrition, T2 tea and Vegemite.
“Time and money are two of our most precious commodities and ‘Subscribe and Save’ gives Amazon customers a simple way to save on both,” said Matt Furlong, Country Manager of Amazon Australia.
“We are excited to bring Australian customers a program that is loved by customers around the world.”
“There is nothing worse than running out of your favourite coffee, washing powder, nappies for your newborn, dog food, or toothpaste, and ‘Subscribe and Save’ will help make this a thing of the past.”
To take advantage of the service, customers don’t need to pay any subscription fee but can subscribe to the products they routinely buy and decide on the frequency of delivery for the product (from 1-6 months).
Also, while the prices on individual items may go up or down between deliveries, subscribers will always get the 10% discount offered with the service.
Customers also have the flexibility to easily skip deliveries if needed, change the delivery day, or cancel deliveries altogether.
