When I lived in Manhattan, everything was delivered. With long work hours and no car, most urban dwellers would have a hard time running errands without this helpful service.
One of the many aspects of city living I miss is delivery, which would be especially useful when I’m recovering from birth and juggling the needs of my newborn, my toddler, and my household. So, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to check out Peapod’s online grocery shoping & delivery service.
If you have not checked out grocery delivery lately, you will be impressed with some of the improvements.
Peapod allows you to use manufacturer coupons to save money. And label readers can check nutrition information online.
The site was very easy to navigate and had a wide selection of available options. While placing your order, you can choose to selectively allow substitutions for some items, should your first choice be unavailable.
My favorite feature is that I am able to link the service with my Stop & Shop card to both save more money and to shop from a list of my previous in-store purchases.
The driver was courteous and friendly, all my groceries were well packed, and the produce was in great condition.
I could especially see using Peapod’s Grocery and Supermarket Delivery now that I have a newborn and toddler at home. We can save the car trips for something we all enjoy, like going to the park And the prepared foods are perfect for a new mama. Also, if I were planning a large party, it would be very convenient to have all the heavy grocery supplies delivered.
But the convenience will cost you–there’s a delivery charge (which is lower if you can allow a more flexible window) and a fuel surcharge; plus tips are encouraged (they do not say how much on the website, but I did some research and most customers suggest $1 per bag, with a $5 minimum).
