Shipt Grocery Delivery Review

One of the things for me is to try new things/Gadgets/services and when there is an enticing offer available then i will almost try it.

Since i have Amex card ,there was amex offer of spend $100 or more on Shipt and
get $50 back,its almost 50% off groceries. I had this on 2 other cards .
Now coming to the Shipt they are Grocery delivery service and currently they are deliver from few stores only one of them is Target and the other is Kroger at least in my Zip Code.

As with any delivery service they have membership fees of $99 for Year or they Have monthly membership. When i signed up there was 2 week free trial and it was good.
Now coming to prices we observed on some of them like Milk,it was almost same price as store price and few others like diapers,eggs etc were price little above. You cant use any coupons or anything on the order.But Other Thing is there are some offers like spend $30 on certain items and get $10 credit for next purchase.

Ordering is simple you need to have a total of $35 for free delivery even with Membership. You get to pick the hours and from the 3 or so orders i did i had groceries delivered almost in 2 hours.

This will work better for people who want to have groceries delivered almost immediately.As for me i like to shop and use coupons to save dollars,so i may not use it Much.
