Costco is at the top of the list for favorite family shopping spots, but sometimes the thought of hitting up that gigantic warehouse and its massive checkout lines with kids in tow isn’t exactly appealing. Now Costco wants to make it easier than ever to order online and have items delivered straight to your door.
The warehouse shopping chain just rolled out a brand new service that allows customers to order items online and have them delivered within two days. It’s like Costco meets Amazon Prime, just imagine the joy of avoiding a trip to the store in addition to not having to haul all those purchases from the car. The new service will be called CostcoGrocery and will come with a $3 fee, which will be waived for orders over $75. Only non-perishable food and sundries will be available through the service, however.
For those looking to get fresh meat and produce delivered at home as well, there’s more good news. Costco has expanded its partnership with Instacart offering same-day delivery service to more cities across the country. While Instacart charges a service fee and a delivery fee of $5.99 for orders under $35, the upside is that you can use the service to shop at Costco without needing a membership, so the fees balance out.
