David and I have successfully moved from Kirkland to Seattle (woot!).  When I arrived “home” the first night, I decided to get rid of our two old Amazon Fresh bins (which were hanging out in our entryway for months) by ordering more groceries.  I put the bins outside and sent in a small order for a few groceries to get the fridge stocked up a bit.  I had no idea that the next morning I was going to wake up to THIS:


The funny part is that things were not packed very efficiently at all.  One of those two blue bins contained nothing more than a bag of frozen veggies (and some dry ice to keep it cold)!  Another mostly-empty bin, as an unexpected surprise (likely a part of the promotional code I used), contained a cute floral arrangement which is now brightening up our dining room table!


Overall, I’m not sure what to think of Amazon Fresh.  I was fairly pleased with the ordering and delivery experience.  Even better, I had been thinking about ordering Season 4 of The Closer on Amazon.com for a while now – it turns out I was able to add it to my Fresh order so essentially I got free 8-hour shipping on it to boot!  Now, the melon I ordered was a bit of a disappointment… I’d need to try a few more produce items to see if things improve before I get hooked.  The prices are also nothing to scream about… I compared and Safeway’s delivery service would be far cheaper.  I also miss being able to quickly compare products in my hands.  And furthermore, it turns out there is a Safeway AND a Trader Joe’s just blocks (or just over a block) away!  That makes it really tough to justify buying groceries online.  🙂
