In case you missed it, Fred Meyer’s (Kroger’s) ClickList service is now called Pickup & Delivery. The Pickup service works exactly the same way ClickList did – order online, pick up curbside. While Fred Meyer has had delivery options available in the past, it is now clearer and more attractive to use.
I put together a cart of groceries to see what I could find out. At first glance, it’s pretty simple. Just put your cart together the same way you would’ve on ClickList (now Pickup). It did not appear that the prices were any higher than what you’d find in the store or through ClickList. (Please do correct me if I’m wrong.)
At checkout, you’ll now see there are two options:
Place your zip code in to see if delivery is available for your address. Lucky for me, delivery is available! Once you finish putting in your address, you’ll be able to select a one-hour delivery window. I assembled my test grocery shopping cart at 10:40am, and the earliest window I was given was 1-2pm the same day. I was actually pretty surprised how fast it could get here. My fee was $9.95, but do know that there may be some variation depending on your address. Please note that the delivery is still being handled by Fred Meyer’s partnership with Instacart (you’ll only see this come up right at checkout – otherwise, the Instacart branding is pretty well absent from the process).
Now, here’s one more reason to consider giving the delivery service a try:
There is a digital coupon that will waive the delivery fee when you spend $75 or more on a total order! To find it, head to fredmeyer.com/coupons and filter by “delivery only” offers. Make sure to click it to load to your Rewards account! The coupon is good through May 5th only. I just did my grocery shopping yesterday, but I may just have to give this a go next week.
One more money saving tip: there are currently over 100 Pickup & Delivery exclusive digital coupons available. I just updated a list of my favorite Pickup & Delivery offers. Take a look before checking out!
If you’ve used the new Delivery service, I’d love to hear about it. What was your experience like?
