Buying groceries is inevitable because we all have to eat! When we go grocery shopping we are faced with a few challenges. These challenges include shopping with kids in tow, seeing food you want to get that is not on your shopping list, and unexpected items you realize that you need to get. Also, you have to spend money on gas to get to the store, and deal with any people that may come your way. Sometimes it’s just better to shop in the comfort of your own home, and could save your sanity!
This post is really about all the ways you can shop for groceries online. You may disagree and say that you actually enjoy going out to grocery shop, and don’t get me wrong, if I am able to venture out sans my kids to grocery shop, it can be a nice time to get some alone time. But, majority of the time, my life is busy, I work full time and I’m all about my kids when I get home.
So, let’s get to the different ways you can shop online for groceries.
Amazon Prime Pantry
Amazon also offers something called Prime Pantry, which is for those who subscribe to Amazon Prime. You can order household items and groceries and they’ll be delivered Prime shipping style which is 2 days. This service is good when you are about to run out of things you need. There are selected items where you can get free shipping on, otherwise each box ships for $5.99. Not a bad deal if you get a bunch of things at once!
Tip to save money: Check out their Prime Pantry coupons page where you can see a bunch of items that provide coupons on different items
Walmart Grocery allows you to order items online and you can pick them up. The cool part is that they bring the groceries right to your car, so you don’t even have to get out. This is ideal for a mom with small kids. It’s tough to take your kids out of their car seats, then having to bring them inside of the store, then having to load them back into their car seats. Walmart provides $10 off your first order when you order up to $50. You can view a coupon code upon log in.
Tip to save money: Wait until you need up to $50 worth of items to get the $10 off. Also order when you will be out and about anyway.
Google Express is another grocery delivery service offered by Google. You can get groceries delivered from stores like Costco Wholesale, Walgreens, Whole Foods, Petsmart and more. You get your first 3 months of membership for free, then $10 a month or $95 for the year. You can also get free delivery on eligible orders.
Tip to save money: If you’re far from Whole Foods, this could be a good way to get healthier items brought to your door! If you have a Costco membership this is a great value for you because some of the items are priced different online vs the store.
Amazon is my go to place for buying all sorts of things, and when I found out about Amazon Fresh I was excited! Unfortunately, Amazon Fresh is so new that it isn’t available in my area (South Florida) yet, so I’ll be waiting for the day they’ll be able to deliver groceries to me. I love the concept of being able to go onto Amazon and order groceries! But if they offer in your area, lucky you! Let me know what you think of them!
Start Up Grocery Delivery Services
There are some other grocery delivery services that have popped up where they are offered in certain areas for now, and all of them offer opportunities to be a shopper for them, which could be a way to make extra money!
Have you used any of these grocery services? What was your experience?
