PSA: Costco delivery via instacart
Posted by: tortoise
Date: March 28, 2020 09:03AM
A friend told us that Costco has teamed up with instacart and I decided to give it a try given the long lines for the senior hours. Go to Costco web site, log in and under grocery heading use the dropdown to choose "same-day Delivery from local Costco powered by instacart". Then go ahead and do your shopping online and when complete it will calculate a driver tip (mine was $5.89 on a $117 order). I placed the order and it said expect delivery within five hours. Much to my surprise my order arrived exactly two hours later and it included everything I wanted including toilet paper. They clearly state that the prices are slightly higher than they would be in the warehouse, and I did notice for instance an extra dollar for a bag of five avocados, and an extra 90ยข per bag of chicharrones but in the big picture of long lines and potential exposure I consider those charges well worth the convenience and safety of home delivery.

(I am in California and local Costco is Vallejo, obviously different locations may differ but certainly worth a try)

I used instacart for the first time this week. Also a costco order. Much better than driving across town. I was told to tip the driver so I gave him $5.

The shoppers are risking their health and even their life to deliver to you. What do you think?

Is relative of mine is working at Costco. They have really put a lot of effort into ensuring the safety of their employees. The Instacart driver wore gloves and kept his distance. I think they are doing everything they can to stay safe.
