Amazon customers in the US can now order from multiple restaurants in all 50 states through Grubhub, directly from the Amazon store. 

Prime members also get free Grubhub+ as part of their membership, saving $120 per year. Grubhub+ offers benefits like free delivery on orders over $12, lower service fees, 5% credit back on pickup orders, and exclusive offers.

Why does this matter? Customers can easily order from various restaurants directly through the Amazon app, streamlining their online shopping and food ordering experience.

Amazon is on a mission to give customers fast delivery. In April, the company announced it will roll out drone deliveries in Arizona later this year. Drone deliveries will be available to West Valley of the Phoenix metro area. 

Convenience at your doorstep 

Locate2u recently reported on Amazon and Walmart’s race for fast delivery. The retail company’s CEO, Doug McMillon, revealed that the business delivered more than 4.4 billion items in the US over the past year. 

But now, Amazon is continuing its quest for fast delivery with the latest Grubhub collaboration. 

Here’s a scenario: A busy professional in New York is an Amazon Prime member. During a lunch break, the customer decides to order food. Without leaving the Amazon app, they access Grubhub and order from their favorite local restaurant. 

Thanks to the Prime membership, the customer enjoys free delivery and earns 5% credit back on her pickup orders. The customer is pleased with the convenience and savings, making her lunch routine easier and more cost-effective.

Competitive edge in the game 

Logistics giant DHL revealed in a post that in the last few years, e-commerce has expanded rapidly. “Businesses that have seen the most success in e-commerce are those promising fast delivery. Next-day and same-day delivery options are becoming an expectation for online businesses of all sizes rather than the premium service it once was.”
