Yesterday afternoon I placed my first grocery store order with Shipt. I just recently heard of Shipt, a delivery service for groceries, etc.
You go to the Shipt website and put in your zip code and it will tell you if your city has Shipt. If so, they will tell you which stores they will deliver to you from.
For my area it was my local grocery store, which is Reasors, Target and Petco.
They have a vast amount of items to choose from. The list just goes on and on.
And yes, you can shop the sales. There is a specific place to shop sales.
But the best thing is, I got to shop for groceries and pet products from the comfort of my recliner.
I forgot to leave a tip on the order I filled out yesterday. I don’t have to give the delivery person a tip, but of course I want to.
When I questioned the Chat section on their site, I was told I will be asked to rate my experience. At that time, I can go to my account, rate the delivery, and leave a tip. Which is good, because I never have cash on hand. I just use a debit card for everything.
How are your prices determined? (from the Shipt website)
It’s super simple! The price you see in the Shipt app is the price you pay.
Delivery is free for members on orders over $35. Smaller orders are welcome, but a $7 delivery fee will be added to help cover the costs of shopping and delivery.
Shipt prices will vary slightly from in-store prices to help cover the costs of picking, packing and processing. Our members can expect to pay about $5 more using Shipt than they would on a $35 order purchased in the store themselves.
When ordering from select retailers, a small service fee will be added at checkout.
For example, a loaf of Wonderbread costs $2.29 in the store and $2.59 to have it delivered to your door using Shipt.
Charlie will be happy that I don’t leave him. I’m not sure if Ivy cares. She is always sleeping when I come home.
Tomorrow I will let you know how this goes. I signed up for $14 per month auto renewal. There was the option to pay annually. But I want to see how I like it before I commit.
Also, if you want to sign up to deliver for Shipt, you can do that here.
You can find more information about Shipt here.
And this link goes to their blog.
My Shipt shopper just phoned me to ask if there was anything else I wanted to add or change about my order. I told her no. She said she was about to begin my shopping and was very courteous.
I should get my delivery between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m, which was the time I chose when I placed my order yesterday. And I’ll let you know what I think of Shipt!
