I was so hesitant to try this, I have always seen the ads for Instacart and the car pick up but it never stood out to me as being convenient. I always thought it was so expensive and just not practical for me who is a stay at home mom. Like grocery shopping is one of my jobs, can you other mommas relate?
My friend was always talking about how amazing it was, she would use it at hotels to deliver water, which by the way I did not know that the hotels charge for the water bottles in your room until I got charged for them. They even did a curling iron run when she forgot hers on a trip, I mean come on, someone will run to a target for you to grab stuff you forgot, sold. How hard is it to order an Uber and have to google the location then go and get the stuff. Or you can just oder it on the Shipt app and have it delivered right to your door.
I paid for the monthly membership because I wanted to test it out before I committed to the yearly subscription. I am now guilty of using it more than once a week now, I use it for recipe ingredients when I want to make something from the cookbook or the random stuff I forget at the store.
Here is how it works-
-If you pay for the monthly membership it is $14.00 per month. If you sign up for the yearly membership it is $99.00 a year.
-Once you create an account you can see what stores they service, for me it is Cvs, Target, and Vons. Not my usual grocery store but the one I do go to is 20 min away so I take the little higher price point for the groceries just for the convenience.
-Delivery is free if you spend more than $35.00. Which it is easy to get to $35.00, even if I don’t need that much stuff I still order it because I would rather put the cost of delivery into my groceries. If you do not spend $35.00 the delivery fee is $7.00
-You can add custom orders to your list. I was placing an order for some hot sauce that wasn’t coming up on the list, I added it to my requests and she was happy to grab it for me. They also text you the entire time with updates, they ask questions and let you know if the store is out of a product you requested.
- There is an option to tip them through the app and you can do cash, personally I just use the app to tip them each time but you go off personal preference.
I have had such great experiences with this company and I highly recommend it. I was meal prepping at home while I had the groceries delivered, it is such a time saver for me and I bet it will be for you as well! They have a referral program as well kind of like a cable company, if you refer someone you get a credit of $50 and they get a credit of $50 towards a yearly membership which is awesome because you get it for $49 instead of the $99 . I am not affiliated with them at all, I just love how easy and practical they make it. If you do end up getting it let me know so we can both get a credit, just email me and I can send it over! Hope this helps with making the choice a little easier, if you have used it comment below so we can see what you think!
