Shipt Grocery Delivery-
Free trial - 4 weeks: The easiest way I found to get this free trial was to sign up through Target's app or website. (I was also able to call and extend this trial longer for free). See bottom of email for instructions on how to sign up for the free trial on Target app.
Unlimited same day delivery
Cost: $14 a month (or $99 a year) (+invitation to tip)
Orders over $35 are delivered for free. (Under $35 has a $7 charge).
Delivers in your area from:
(97086 and 97267) Target, Fred Meyer, Office Depot, Safeway, QFC, Petco, Smart Foodservice
(97222): Target, Fred Meyer, Office Depot, Safeway, QFC, CVS pharmacy, Smart Foodservice
Customer Service: In my experience, customer service has been excellent. They text if something is out (unless I just tell them to use their judgment) and will even tell me if, for example, there are carrots like I wanted, but they aren't looking so hot.
Instacart Express Grocery Delivery-
Unlimited same day delivery
Free trial- 14 days
Cost: $9.99 a month or $99 a year. (+invitation to tip)
You can also do deliveries without a subscription for a fee. Typically $3.99-$7.99. There is also often a service fee (typically 5%). And busy pricing fees during peak delivery hours.
$0 delivery fees on orders of $35 or more. Reduced service fees. No busy pricing fees during peak delivery hours.
Item Pricing: Retailers set the prices of items available for delivery on the Instacart platform. While many retailers offer the same in-store prices on Instacart, others set different prices on the Instacart platform than in-store prices. In some cases, a flat percentage is added to cover the cost of the Instacart service.
