Amazon Fresh Introduces "Recurring Reservations" for Simplified Grocery Shopping

Amazon has unveiled a novel enhancement to its Amazon Fresh service, dubbed "Recurring Reservations," designed to afford customers the convenience of scheduling their grocery deliveries or pickups for a set day and time each week. This feature aims to facilitate seamless planning for consumers, enabling them to secure a delivery or pickup window up to a week in advance.


To maintain their chosen slot, shoppers are prompted to finalize their orders 24 hours before the scheduled time, with notifications sent as a reminder before the reservation expires. The flexibility of this system allows for additions to the grocery order anytime until the Amazon picker starts assembling the order, alongside the option to modify or cancel reservations as needed.


In addition to Recurring Reservations, Amazon Fresh is enhancing the shopping experience with the "Repeat Items" feature, tailored for customers who frequently purchase the same items. This option pre-populates the shopping cart with selected items at specified intervals, such as weekly or bi-weekly, streamlining the process for essentials like milk or apples.


Kim Kornfeld, an Amazon spokesperson, highlighted the convenience these features bring to shoppers looking to optimize their grocery shopping routine, ensuring they never miss out on essential items for their meals. "These features are ideal for those with busy schedules who wish to organize their shopping more efficiently and avoid the rush of last-minute purchases," Kornfeld remarked.


The Recurring Reservations service is now accessible in nearly 1,300 cities and towns across the United States, reflecting Amazon's commitment to improving customer experience across its grocery delivery and pickup services.


This development follows a similar initiative by Instacart, which offered an auto-order feature for scheduled deliveries. However, Instacart has announced the discontinuation of this service as of February 28, marking a shift in the landscape of online grocery shopping solutions.
