I am a lover of Amazon Prime and use it all of the time for next day delivery so when I heard about Amazon Prime Now I was intrigued to see how it could be used. I was sent some vouchers to use on the app and after a really bad day with the kids at each others throat and generally being miserable I decided that it was the perfect opportunity to try and rescue the day.
To order using the Amazon Prime Now service you need a separate app and I did find myself slightly overwhelmed by the selection available however it is the sort of place that you will go to when you know exactly what you want so I don’t think that would be an issue normally. When using the app you can see the available delivery slots that you can select. I placed my order just after 4pm and it was delivered at the beginning of the two hour slot I selected. I was also able to track my delivery using the app during this time.
Amazon Prime Now has so many different categories to choose from and can solve any emergency shopping situations. To rescue our evening I needed entertainment, booze and food.
We managed to get frozen pizza, pringles and popcorn to have whilst watching Kung Fu Panda 3 on DVD. I also stocked up the fridge with a great variety of ales and a copy of Harry Potter and the cursed child to see me through the evening when the kids had gone to bed. As we had some money left on the vouchers we chose some new figures for Disney Infinity to keep the girls busy the next day and spent the remainder on a Chewbacca Mask because we have all really wanted one since Chewbacca Mum trended on social media and it had us all in stitches.
Since our initial purchases, we have since used Amazon Prime Now to get ink for my printer, buy a present for a birthday party I had forgotten about and even get some emergency toilet roll on a Sunday when the shops were shut. If Amazon Prime Now is in your area I would definitely recommend downloading the app and having a look because you never know when you will need it!
