Amazon’s Prime Now to bring its food-delivery service to Austin

Amazon Prime Now members in Austin can get hundreds of items delivered in an hour or two without having to get off their couches. Soon they will be able to get restaurant meals delivered, as well, according to Tech Crunch.

The member-based service, which costs $99 annually and requires downloading an app, will deliver meals to Austin members for the restaurant’s listed price, no delivery fee or additional charges beyond the $99 fee (for now).

The service first rolled out in Seattle this summer, then Portland, and today it tackles Los Angeles. Austin is one of 20 Prime Now cities that will be getting the service. There is no word what local restaurants will be involved or when Austin or the other Prime Now cities will get the food-delivery service, which Tech Crunch identifies as simply an added perk to being a Prime Now member. Currently Prime Now members get free two-hour delivery of retail items and one-hour delivery for $7.99.
