Amazon’s newest feature in its Prime Now service is lunch delivery that offers two meals each from two restaurants.
Amazon is giving us another reason not to leave the office during lunch time.
The company has launched “Daily Dish” in Seattle, a delivery service that offers two meals each from two restaurants. The service is an extension of Amazon’s restaurant-delivery service from Prime Now, which offers a wide selection of restaurants for delivery with a $20 minimum.
Daily Dish has a fixed price for each dish, usually between $9 and $12. Each day, Amazon will text you around 9:30 a.m. with the day’s selections — one meat option and one vegetarian option each from two local restaurants. You order through the Prime Now app, with lunch arriving between noon and 12:30 p.m.
The service is available only to Prime members, Amazon’s $99-per-year service that offers free two-day shipping, music- and TV-streaming services, and more.
