CHICAGO (WLS) -- Amazon's sane- and next-day shopping delivery service, AmazonFresh, has arrived in Chicago.

Amazon announced Wednesday that AmazonFresh has expanded to Chicago and Dallas. These new cities add to the growing list of regions where AmazonFresh is available, including recently launched Northern Virginia, Boston, Baltimore, and London. AmazonFresh is also available in Seattle, New York, Philadelphia, Stamford, Trenton, seven regions across California - Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, San Francisco, Sacramento, San Jose, Stockton - and more.

With AmazonFresh, customers can combine grocery and other shopping and order a wide range of items, including fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, baked goods, and dairy products to beauty products, pet supplies, baby items, and household goods. AmazonFresh offers same-day or next-day delivery, with delivery windows, including the option of either attended or unattended delivery. Customers can place an order in the morning and have it delivered as early as that same evening, or order before going to bed and have the items on their doorstep in time for breakfast the next day.

Customers can use AmazonFresh for $14.99 per month as an Add-on to their Prime membership. And for a limited time, new customers can start a 30-day free trial of AmazonFresh and receive $25 off their first order of $75 or more by entering FRESH25 at checkout.

Customers get unlimited delivery with the new monthly AmazonFresh membership. They can also shop AmazonFresh using the mobile Amazon App. In addition, AmazonFresh customers who are not currently in a free trial can now get the new Amazon Dash for free with first use. The Amazon Dash is an shopping device that allows customers to shop from anywhere in their home by voice search or barcode scanning. After buying the device for $20, customers will receive a $20 credit the first time they use the device.

AmazonFresh also offers products from popular local shops and restaurants in each region through the Local Market program. In Chicago, merchants include Local Foods, Irv & Shelly's Fresh Picks, Lillie's Q and more.

Get Started: To use AmazonFresh, customers can simply go to and sign up for a free 30-day trial of the service. After the free trial, Prime members can continue to shop AmazonFresh for a monthly fee of $14.99.
