WFMW ~ Grocery Delivery
Posted by Carol on November 12, 2008
I know, I know…It sounds terribly spoiled of me to have my groceries delivered, but think about it.
Think about the time it takes to make the list, cut coupons, drive to the store, shop for at least an hour, go through the check out line, bag your groceries, load them in your car, drive home, unload the car, and put them away. And don’t forget about doing all that with 2 or more kids in tow. Whew! Just writing that made me tired.
What if you could cut out driving to the store, shopping for the groceries, the check out line and bagging, and loading and unloading the car? How happy would you be? I’ll tell you how happy you’d be.
I have been using Peapod for grocery delivery for over a year and I love it. I log in, make my list on-line, pick a delivery time and date and then wait for the groceries to be carried into my house. I set up payment with my debit card number when I set up the account, so I don’t even have to deal with money – other than a tip, but only if I have cash on hand (sorry, delivery guy). They also accept coupons.
In my area, the delivery charge is $6.95. Personally I feel it’s worth every penny, but there are ways to lower that. Having my payment set up in advance knocks $1 off my total. Then you can choose off-peak delivery times that can knock another $1-$2 off. Every once in a while they will offer free delivery if you meet certain criteria.
There are trade-offs, such as things being out of stock sometimes, or not being able to squeeze and sniff your own produce (never had a problem though). In the event of a mistake, a toll free number connects you with extremely helpful customer service people who will promptly make things right or credit your account.
