Grocery delivery continues to change the game. 🛒💐
In a pinch for stunning flowers and need same-day delivery? I’m sharing this genius flower delivery hack so you can send grocery store flowers same-day on a dime, especially when compared to the cost of national flower delivery.
Use a grocery delivery service like Instacart to send affordable flowers to loved ones last-minute!
Even better, now through May 8th (or while supplies last), Instacart is helping you deliver Mother’s Day gifts to mom in as fast as one hour with free delivery on your first order of $10 or more! 🤩
With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we’ve been talking about the best flower delivery services available.
It wasn’t until two Hip readers recently shared their experience ordering grocery store flowers through Instacart that we realized this is the most genius shopping hack!
Here’s what our Hip readers said about their Instacart flower delivery experiences:
“I used Instacart to deliver some birthday treats from Kroger to my grandmother who lives in another state. I just asked them to pick up a pretty birthday bouquet and even with a big tip, it was SO much cheaper. My grandma loved it!”
“I used Instacart to order flowers from Costco to send to my sister. I asked the shopper on my notes to message me a picture of the color selection available so I could let them know my preference. It worked great! My sister was happy with the roses and she’s even growing her own out of the same bouquet!”
Collin loved this frugal idea so much that she couldn’t wait to give it a try while her mom was in town visiting. 😍 #daughtergoals
For JUST over $35 (+ tip), she was able to get two dozen white roses and a HUGE box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates delivered to her door! She also mentioned that the two dozen roses without the chocolate were just over $20, which seems like such a great price for THAT many roses. This was from her local Costco so prices and availability could change based on your area.
Aside from the frugalness Instacart flower delivery already provides, the other major perk is your flowers can be delivered on the SAME DAY along with any available treats you may want to add to your order! 😱 Talk about a major game-changer! In fact, national flower delivery sites can’t even come close to getting this frugal or convenient. 👏🏻
If that’s not enough to sway you into giving grocery delivery a try, it’s also worth pointing out just how incredible this is for all the procrastinators out there. 🙌🏻
Luckily, with Instacart you can get a bouquet of grocery store flowers delivered to your loved one TODAY!
Depending on your area, you’ll also have a surplus of options at your fingertips.
When testing this ourselves, we found the easiest way to get a bouquet your recipient will love is to ask for a picture of inventory when placing your Instacart flower delivery order.
