If you’ve ever considered buying your groceries through Amazon, there’s no time like the present. Amazon’s Prime Pantry gives Prime members access to groceries at low prices with all kinds of deals and coupons. If you’re already an Amazon Prime member, you can pay an extra fee of $4.99 per month and get free shipping on orders of $40 or more. If you’re not a prime member, there’s a small bump of $2. Even with those added costs factored in, here are five grocery items that you should buy through Amazon instead of in your grocery store.

1. Snacks

Like to have a pantry full of snacks at all times? Prime Pantry has a bunch of deals on chips and cookies, and you’ll find cheaper prices on tortilla chipsLay’s Salt and Vinegar Chips and Teddy Grahams. Whether you’re more of a savory or sweet snack person, you’ll end up saving some money online.

2. Coffee Pods

If you don’t already know, coffee pods (AKA K-cups) are one of the best pantry items to buy on Amazon. They’re expensive when you buy them in individual boxes at the grocery store, but you can buy them in bulk online for less. Sometimes you’ll find boxes of 70 or more coffee pods for under $30, which comes out to less than 43 cents per serving. For anyone who can’t start the day without a cup of coffee, scout for your java online.

3. Breakfast Cereals And Energy Bars

For energy bars and breakfast cereals, you’ll find way more deals online. You’ll find Quaker Life Cereal for $2.50, Quaker Chewy Yogurt Granola Bars for $3.59 and Apple Cinnamon Quaker Breakfast Squares for $2.50. And for a healthy option, you can get a 12-pack of Kashi GOLEAN Crunch Cereal for $10.98.

4. Cooking Oil

No matter what kind of cooking oil you prefer, you’ll find larger bottles for less on Amazon. While olive oil at your local grocery store might cost between $8 and $12 for a medium-sized bottle, you can get a 68-ounce bottle of extra virgin olive oil for $17 online. If your order is over $40, the free shipping makes it all worth it.

5. Spices

Spices can be expensive whether you like to cook or you always find yourself adding a little bit of extra seasoning to your take-out meals. For taco night, there’s taco seasoning mix for $0.98 or a variety of Whole Foods brand spices like turmericorganic tandoori masala seasoning and organic chimichurri seasoning for $4.99.

In between watching episodes of your favorite show on Netflix, you can go online to check out the best deals. It all depends on what’s in your pantry on a daily basis, but if you’re going to shop online, you might as well see what’s in stock and save in the process.
