#1 Amazon Fresh
Everyone who has an Amazon Prime membership should rejoice because as of October 1st, 2019, everyone who has the membership no longer has to pay the extra $14.99 fee. They get all the benefits of Amazon Fresh included with it, including free delivery for orders over $35 (otherwise it will incur an additional cost). The only drawback that it has is that it’s only available in select markets and not nationwide.
Otherwise, it is a great option to get your groceries fresh at prices that compete with the best supermarket deals. The only pricey part is that you need to have an Amazon Prime membership, which is priced at $119 annually. Depending on how much you use it, it may just be redundant when you look at how much you save on shipping various things.
However, it might not be the best choice for you if you don’t have the membership, since it can be quite pricey to get it just for their grocery services. Not to mention, their delivery areas might not agree with your location.

Peapod is an online supermarket that offers any type of food product you could think of. They have thousands of items in their catalog, from natural and organic products to seafood and prime meats, as well as locally sourced specialties, fresh produce, amazing alcoholic beverages, and more! They even offer meal kits that come with everything measured and pre-chopped.
The only disadvantages to Peapod are that there are no memberships (so you must pay for delivery on every order) and that if you live outside of their designated areas, they will charge you an additional fee (for fuel surcharge). Otherwise, the delivery fees for orders under $100 range between $7.95 and $9.95, while those over $100 have a flat fee of $6.95.
All in all, this delivery service is great for those who want to get both meal kits and other individual grocery items as well.
