I’m not one to sway from my tech topics, but this one deserves to be highlighted. Plus, there’s a tech-edge to it in that it is does all online so I think I’m still in my tech-support bounds here.
Instacart! As it sounds, you can instantly throw stuff in your cart and pay for it. Sign in quickly and you’re able to buy from supermarkets in a pinch. Whole Foods, Costco, and Food Emporium are the three grocery stores to choose from. If you’re from NYC and you’re a supermarket junkie like I am, this is heaven for you.
Here’s how it works.
- Sign in. Duh!
- Choose your Store. Whole Foods of course!
- Select what you want to eat. Goat yogurt for me. I know, it’s not for everyone.
- Get a free delivery over $35.
- Best of all, get your delivery within 2 hours on your first order. I’m not sure if the delivery time varies going forward.
I think this Instacart works better for Costco where it’s a schlep to get there and a pain to battle the long lines, cabs, and parking lot. Buy in bulk and avoid the travel charges back and forth.
So, to sum it up, Instacart is a winner and worth trying at least once.
