Amazon Prime members will no longer have to lift a finger to go grocery shopping.

Now, at select Whole Foods locations, Prime members can order groceries to be delivered to their car. If you’re always on a time crunch or maybe you aren’t the best at staying focused when grocery shopping once you get in the store, this new feature is for you.

Orders are taken through the Prime Now app, where users should select the pickup delivery option. Orders over $35 can be picked up within an hour of ordering. For an additional $4.99, groceries can be prepared within 30 minutes. Prime members who use the service can also let Amazon know when they’re en route so that the groceries will be ready just in time for arrival.

Amazon Echo’s Alexa can also help out with the process. Simply tell her to put items into your Whole Foods shopping cart and then, once you’re ready to buy, you can tell Alexa to check out. It’s perfect for when you have fleeting thoughts of what you need to buy.

After ordering, customers can make their way to the Whole Foods location they selected, where they’ll wait for their groceries to be brought out at a designated parking spot. That’s where a Prime Now shopper will load up the car.

For now, the service is only available in Sacramento, California, and Virginia Beach, Virginia, but more cities will be added to the list throughout the year.

Since Amazon bought Whole Foods in 2017, the two companies have added benefits for their customers, one of the first being significant price drops at Whole Foods for Amazon customers. In July, Amazon announced that Whole Foods could be delivered to Prime members also through Prime Now, which pairs nicely with the new pickup option.
