NEW YORK (AP) – Amazon is axing free grocery delivery for Prime members on orders less than $150.
In an email to Prime members Friday, Amazon said customers who get their groceries delivered from Amazon Fresh – and pay less than $150 – will be charged between $3.95 and $9.95 depending on the order size.
The new policy starts February 28.
Currently, the company offers Prime members free grocery delivery on orders above $35, with the exception of New York, where it’s $50.
The decision to impose new fees comes as Amazon attempts to trim costs amid a hazy economic environment.
