Amazon launches new affordable shopping initiative

Amazon has launched a new service aimed at US customers to help them find the online retailer’s discounts and affordable shopping schemes.

Amazon Access also allows customers to buy goods using different payment options including SNAP EBT and Amazon Layaway, said the company.

The new scheme replaces the discounted tier of prime membership, which allows those qualifying for government assistance to have the benefits of prime membership at less than half the price.

Amazon Access also allows customers to shop without a debit or a credit card and pay by cash at a self-service Amazon locker or staffed counter.

Commenting on the new service, Amazon said: “We found that many of our customers are looking for ways to save money and time, now more than ever. We know that online shopping is a big part of how they save, and that’s why we’re introducing Amazon Access, a hub to make shopping easier for all customers.”

Amazon recently announced a new shopping event in October exclusively for prime members in multiple countries.
