I Tried 3 Grocery Pickup Services & Here's Who I Prefer
After thinking about how many hours I spend a month in the grocery store, I decided it was time to maximize my time when it came to running errands. In an attempt to make grocery shopping something I can do in under an hour, I tried three grocery pickup services in Texas.
I've used H-E-B for online orders plenty of times already. As someone who loves H-E-B tortillas and numerous H-E-B products, it's no surprise that I love shopping at their store. As for online, I love it just as much. The H-E-B website is easy to navigate, and so is their app.
Before I start shopping, I get to choose a pickup slot convenient for me. I love going in the mornings, and I always find a pickup time before work. I often see online coupons while I create my shopping list.
Their service offers fantastic scheduling, easy navigation, and coupons. Overall, I love that I'm able to order perishable items. That's right, you can order produce and meat online.
Target doesn't have a pickup fee or minimum purchase. I love it! Sometimes I don't want to run inside for five items. Target knows that and allows you to order groceries even if your bill is only $14.
You can use those coupons as you shop, so take advantage of it. Once you check out on the app, Target will let you know when your order is ready. This means there is no time slot.
If you have no idea when you'll be able to get from work to the Target on the other side of town, no worries, Target will hold your order for three days.
Walmart also has a pickup service. Yes, it's completely free. You can shop from the app or a desktop. My biggest con is the minimum order. You must order at least $30 of groceries to use the service.
It's worth it to me. I love saving time and, of course, not having to leave my car. As I mentioned, safety does play a massive role for me. I'm not one to grocery shop alone after dark, so having the option to pick up groceries before or after work without leaving my car is fantastic.
