Beyond Prime Day discounts (coming soon!) the Amazon Prime subscription service offers a wide range of perks. Yes, sometimes a benefit falls by the wayside, like the loss of free delivery from Whole Foods, which recently even led to a lawsuit. But as Prime membership has ticked up in price over the years, Amazon is regularly looking to add new benefits to draw in new customers and keep existing ones around.

Today, Amazon has just announced its latest round of new Prime benefits, and fans of food delivery services may want to take note: The online shopping giant has just added a free year of Grubhub+.

Amazon shuttered its own online restaurant delivery platform back in June 2019, admitting that, no, Amazon can't succeed at delivering literally everything you need.

"There's never been a better time to take advantage of all the membership has to offer," Jamil Ghani, vice president of Amazon Prime, stated. "Prime already delivers great value for members. These new exclusive offers and experiences show how a single Prime membership unlocks a whole world of potential."Speaking of other offers, the announcement stated that Prime members will also get exclusive content for the forthcoming Prime Video show The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, discounts tied to the launch of Amazon's upcoming Thursday Night Football coverage, and exclusive experiences at the upcoming Ultimate Crown streamers vs. gamers battle featuring MrBeast and Ninja.
