Grocery Apps

Technology Matters

Evelyn Maysonet looks at the food delivery from the Weber-Morgan Health Department Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2020, in Ogden, Utah. Maysonet has been isolating with her husband and son in their Ogden home since all three tested positive for COVID-19 over a week ago. None of them have been able to leave home to buy groceries so Maysonet said they were thrilled to receive the health department’s delivery. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)

Instacart uses personal shoppers to pick up items for you from local stores. This includes the ability to order from Sam’s Club without a membership. You will pay more than members would in the store. In some areas you can even order from liquor stores, pet stores and pharmacies. If you pay extra you can get free two-hour delivery on orders over 35-dollars. The app is free for iOS and Android.

Shipt is similar to Instacart but requires you sign up for a membership that comes with free shipping on orders over 35-dollars. For smaller orders, there’s a 7-dollar fee. Like Instacart, you get a personal shopper who will pick up the items on your list from various local stores, including CVS, Fresh Thyme and Meijer. Alcohol delivery is an option in some areas and you can get your items as quickly as within the hour. The app is free for iOS and Android.

The Walmart app lets you order groceries for same-day pickup or have it delivered. Order everything from groceries to home goods to electronics. Beauty products, clothing — anything Walmart sells, really. The delivery fee starts at 7-95. The app is free for iOS and Android.
