Having used this service satisfactorily for the last twelve months, I am staggered at the prices now being charged through Amazon compared to the actual prices in store. I don't mind a mark-up for free delivery but the difference in prices are excessive. It just seems something is really wrong here and maybe this is worthy of a Martin investigation?

    Or market forces setting a price on a service that was losing them money .

    All the major supermarkets dropped free delivery for that reason. , They have chosen to raise prices on Amazon to offer "free delivery" 

    Nothing to investigate

    If you are better off buying direct from morrisons and having a delivery or collecting then do so. There may be some items more expensive or it could be the algorithm making pricing decisions.
    I've just compared a couple of things on my collection tomorrow and the prices are exactly the same, cheaper actually because the delivery is free with prime and I have to drive 7 miles to collect from the store.
    I actually prefer to pay the premium for delivery because I value my time, but found collecting is easier in case there are OOS items or unwelcome subs.

    Why are you buying via Amazon ?

    I take its the convenience of getting the goods same day or next day.

    Just order via Morrisons, its your money your spending at Amazon, why not save your money and spend it at Morrisons or shop at Aldi/Lidl.

    That's a lie!! It's NOT free delivery on morrisons using Amazon, in fact unless you spend £40 or more they charge £3.99 for delivery... so the prices are far too excessive,  in fact only recently they charged £1.85 for princes chicken in white sauce then £1.90 and now it's £2.05 in a matter of weeks.. and cravendale milk for 2 litres is £2.00 compared to the actual price of £1.65 in store!

    If you do not like the price to not use the service, shopping online for Morrison's items via Amazon is not in any way compulsory.

    Only used Amazon / Morrisons a couple of times and was quite surprised that items were exactly the same price
    as the in store shelf price.

    I was not expecting the prices to stay the same for long.
