Amazon doesn't sell perishables - so there is limited usefullness in their grocery delivery.
In our area both Safeway and Peapod, and some smaller stores deliver. I like the online ordering, but it does cost more than the store. Peapod is most awesome because they have an unattended delivery option where they pack all your stuff in coolers and leave it for you! It does cut down on impulse shopping and can be accomplished so much faster than going to the store.
When I go back to work i will probably go back to Peapod rather than the store shopping I've been doing (at Aldi's because I am frugal!)
ETA - What about a CSA or dairy in your area that makes deliveries?

Friends of ours use Amazon Fresh in the Seattle area. They love it everything about it. My SIL and her husband have done grocery deliver in Ottawa (Canada) and they found that the produce was hit or miss... the person filling the order grabbed the first four apples they saw, not the four best apples. We've heard that even the produce with Amazon Fresh is perfect.
In the Seattle area, Amazon is trialing a new service - Amazon Fresh - which does sell perishables. It's wonderful, they deliver to my door overnight or during the day (unattended). I don't have to be home, it comes in totes with ice packs as needed to keep things fresh/frozen. Then they later collect the totes. They will take bags back for recycling too. I cannot say enough excellent things about this service.
