Hey Bay Area fruit people!
This might be old news to some of you, but a co-worker just told me about this A-MAZING grocery delivery startup! The service is currently only available to the Bay Area!
Not even kidding - this could be life changing for us fruit munchers! Prices seem on par or better than most grocery stores. You can order items from Whole Foods, Safeway, Costco, and Trader Joes, and you can select custom quantities, down to the individual banana! Seemingly reasonable delivery charges and low minimum orders! For instance, all orders over $35 only cost $4 to deliver, SAME DAY!
Here's my link: http://inst.cr/t/VqpyJq
Full disclosure - I get $10 if you sign up with my link, but you also get $10 and a free delivery to try it out.
I'm definitely going to use this to simplify my banana rotation. When I buy by the box and shop less frequently, I don't always eat bananas at the perfect spotty ripeness and/or end up freezing some.
Google Shopping Express is an awesome alternative for non-perishable items. Free same-day delivery from Costco, Nob Hill Foods, etc. at in-store prices and NO MINIMUM. Again, full disclosure, I get $15 if you sign up with this link, but so do you! http://www.google.com/shopping/express/invite/B49ME53ES
I personally get my non-produce items from Google Shopping and my fruit and veg from Instacart. So easy!
Google Shopping Express is now delivering produce! Selection is somewhat limited so far. Again, if you need a free account, and would like $15 credit, you can use my invite here: http://www.google.com/shopping/express/invite/B49ME53ES
Once you're logged into your account you can see the fresh fruit category here: https://www.google.com/shopping/express/#HomePlace:cat=412.422.430....
You bet! We love it, just came home to a box of bananas and strawberries today!
Try Google Shopping Express for any non-produce items too, since delivery is free and there's no minimum order. And you may check if Amazon Fresh also delivers to your area...I haven't been able to try it yet because we're just outside of their delivery area.
O. M. GGGGGGGGGG. THIS IS AMAZING!!! GAH!!! I don't have a car so unless I can catch a friend going to the grocery store I usually have to haul stuff on my bike in a giant back pack or on the bus (which I did just the other day with a case of bananas from trader joes). Life changer.
thank you! placing an order for 60 bananas this afternoon :)
I updated the original post, but just so y'all know...
