More Tips

Did you know that many sites offer the ability to shop for groceries from the comfort of your own home? Online grocery shopping is convenient, a time-saver, AND sometimes even offers exclusive sales that you would not be able to score otherwise. SO if you work outside of the home or just don’t have time to tackle this necessary chore every week, be sure to check out these online grocery sites…

1.) AmazonFresh

AmazonFresh is a grocery delivery and pickup service available exclusively for Prime members in select cities for an additional $14.99 per month. The AmazonFresh grocery delivery service allows you to skip your trip to the grocery store and spend more time doing the things you love.

You’ll be able to shop a wide selection of fresh groceries and choose the most convenient delivery time for YOU. Choose to place an order in the morning for same-day delivery OR order your groceries in the evening and wake up to fresh strawberries, milk, eggs, and more – all on your doorstep. Plus, you can even shop Whole Foods Market groceries for natural, organic items right on AmazonFresh!


2.) Walmart Grocery

Walmart Grocery is a pick-up and delivery service available at select locations with no service fees or markups! Simply place your order online, choose a time slot and your order will be delivered directly to your car (some areas even have the option of home delivery)! Go here for details on this service.

Plus, for a limited time, new Walmart Grocery customers can save $10 off your first Walmart Grocery online order of $50 or more with promo code MOMHACKS or WOWFRESH at checkout.

And, Walmart is even testing a new concept in very select areas where they shop, deliver and even put away groceries in your FRIDGE for you. Go here for more details (be sure to read all of the comments).


3.) Safeway Grocery Delivery

Safeway Grocery Delivery offers the convenience of online shopping to select cities in Arizona, California, District Of Columbia, Maryland, Oregon, Virginia and Washington, but many Safeway affiliate stores are now offering grocery delivery as well, so be sure to check your store’s site. Keep in mind that online prices, promotions and offers may differ from those in their physical stores.

Regular home delivery rates in most areas are $9.95 on purchases of $150+ and $12.95 on purchases under $150 (excluding tax, delivery fee, fuel surcharge, bottle deposits and bag fees where applicable).

Plus, for a limited time, new customers can get $20 off your first $49 order and free delivery with promo code TWENTY at checkout. Or, get free delivery on any purchase with the code EASY7.


4.) Kroger ClickList

With Kroger ClickList, you can shop online for over 70,000 items across the entire store, including fresh meat and produce – plus new items are added every week! Just go here and browse for the items you want to purchase and add them to your cart. During the ordering process, you’ll be asked to select a pickup or delivery time and pay for your order online using a credit or debit card. Plus, digital coupons loaded to your Shopper’s Card will automatically be applied to your order at pickup!

Then, just come by the store at your reserved pickup time, and they’ll load your order into your car. Or, if you choose to have your order delivered (where available), they’ll deliver your groceries to you. You can even order using personalized product suggestions, so shopping is even easier!

For pickup orders, pull up to the designated Kroger ClickList pickup area at your scheduled time (there will be signs to help guide you) – an associate will assist you by loading your groceries right into your car and the service fee will be waived for the first 3 orders. For delivery orders, you’ll receive an alert when your order is on its way – a service fee will be applied to your order at the time it’s placed. A driver from their delivery partner will deliver the order right to your doorstep!


5.) Jet.com

When you buy groceries online at Jet.com, they hand-pick all your groceries, pack them up carefully in a refrigerated box, and send them off on their way to your fridge with 1-2 day delivery. Unlike other grocery delivery services, you don’t have to be home for your Jet.com delivery – your fresh groceries will stay fresh and your frozen groceries will stay frozen while you’re out and about.

Plus, Jet.com only stocks select high-quality meat, fish, dairy, produce, and other grocery essentials, and their trained experts pick everything out by hand. That means your tomatoes will skip sitting at the store, so they’ll be fresher than fresh – or you’ll get your money back. If one of their fresh products does not meet your expectations, just contact them within 30 days and they’ll make it right.

Get free shipping over $35, and 2-day delivery on thousands of groceries. Just pay a $4.95 fresh packaging fee to help offset the cost of keeping your fresh groceries cold all the way to your fridge.


6.) Vitacost

Vitacost.com carries over 45,000 different healthy products from more than 2,500 leading brands, including a variety of organic, gluten-free brands and even high-quality Vitacost brand products. And if there’s something they don’t carry that you want, you can always send them a request!

    Amazon Now has been pretty amazing for us! Everything arrives within a two hour time slot same day. There is no up charge for it just tip the driver if you want. In our area they shop for us at wholefoods, sprouts and of coarse Amazon. 😀👍

    All has arrived fresh and in great condition. The one time one of the eggs broke I contacted them and they refunded me entire purchase price. I was just going to ask for the price of the eggs.

    All around awesome!!!

    • Mary (Stellar Sidekick)

      Awesome! So glad to hear that!

    • Nedwards

      I had the same experience with Amazon. However, I moved and they don’t serve my new area 🙁 very disappointed, struggling to find another service that will come as close.

  2. Jenny

    I have used Aisles Online with Hyvee to have groceries delivered to my son at college and it has worked great! They have a great selection of products and offer a variety of delivery times.

    • Mary (Stellar Sidekick)

      Oh awesome – good to know!

  3. Oatbunch

    You forgot Thrive. They’re great for offering tons of options for those of us with food allergies or prefer natural/organic options at a cheaper cost.

    • Mary (Stellar Sidekick)

      Thanks for letting us know!

      • Karen

        Instacart was handy when my car was in the shop the 2 weeks before Easter. I used a 2 week free trial code that I got from a friend. Instacart shopped Aldi and Costco. I liked not going to Costco the Saturday before Easter. I think Instacart is overpriced; They do not honor in store pricing. My grocery bill was much higher than it would have been had I shopped on my own. I would use Instacart again just not all the time; for me it isn’t worth the extra fee, or the uocharge on groceries.

  4. Richardrod

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THIS LIST HIP2SAVE! HAVE ADDED TO MY “HIP LIST”. GREATLY APPRECIATED!

    • Mary (Stellar Sidekick)

      You are so welcome! 🙂

    I really like Grub Market. They ship organic produce and food nationwide. I live in northern Wisconsin and especially in the winter it’s hard to find organic produce that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. I love that I can order whatever produce we’d like and in a few days it will arrive via FedEx. Everything has been excellent quality. https://www.grubmarket.com:443/referral/59856

  6. laureen

    This is kind of funny. I just did my first Shipt job today. I felt like my heart would stop because they kept texting me to add on stuff lol

    • Happymama

      Nice! I did some promo stuff with Shipt in my town, and love to see the people using it 🙂

  7. Mdf001

    Had a WONDERFUL experience with Walmart order online grocery service yesterday! I used the code and received $10 off my order, the order was ready and waiting when I got there, they helped load it, AND one of the items was not available so I got the more expensive option free of charge! Also got a goody bag that included a full size Starbucks refresher, jar of pasta sauce, and free samples! The customer service was great as well! I will definitely be shopping this way from now on!

  8. hilly

    Oh I also think tomthumb delivers groceries if you have one in your area and I saw last week on there site 10 – 20 dollars off. With Insta cart it shows them being monitored on there cell phone to your computer from store to your home so you know if they get lost traffic etc. Whole foods had a 20.00 off coupon I used with them.

  9. MCouzens

    I just placed an order with Vitacost. I received a coupon code offer for 20% off a $50 purchase. So I combined it with sale items and harder to find items. Got a lot of pantry staples at a much better price than in store.

  10. Jodi P

    Schnucks Markets also have online shopping and home delivery, or in-store pick up . They’ve had this for almost twenty years! I know because I worked there and used to do the online shopping, LOL

  11. Lisa

    I shop at vitacost often, – that is where I get all my organic jarred tomato stuff, from sauce to paste to diced etc! In addition, tons of other things, like organic seaweed, awesome tahini, dry beans, great prices especially using codes on top of sales and their periodic select sales. Can’t say enough great things about vitacost!

  12. Carin03

    Shipt codes SAVE25 and DAD7C can be combined to save a total of 35.00 off and 2 weeks free!

  13. Dayna

    I deliver groceries for Shipt and love the company. I appreciate how the prices are not too much higher than if you were to purchase items yourself within the store. And you can get them delivered within an hour of when you place your order. We get rewarded as shoppers when new members join and use Shipt, plus you (the new member) get $10 off your first order if you use my referral link. I would greatly appreciate the help! Thanks so much!

    I just started using fresh direct and I absolutely love them. The prices are very good in comparison to my area of northern Virginia where I live. In addition to being able to get my regular groceries I’m also able to get freshly made meals and meal kits. The produce is local and you can change your order up until 10 PM the night before. Additionally they’re doing a special now and you can get the first two months of delivery for a penny. I have included my referral link below if you would like to try them I would highly recommend and I appreciate your using my link.

    If anyone wants to use my Instacart referral code, you also get the $10 off and free shipping. It’s MARIEH132189.

  16. Kristinn Andersen

    Anyone delivering outside the US? Trying to add to the variety available in the local grocery stores here in Iceland.

  17. Lance Jade:

    Love it this article. This is very helpful for me to choose Online grocery Store to buy any stuff and food.
