With Instacart, they pick your order based on how much you tip. So, a 20% tip makes it a same day order. You give them alternate product choices or just write "any kind of ice cream" instead of a specific ice cream. It's pricey, but since we are older, it lets us stay in the house. My girlfriend is almost 80 now and probably wouldn't make it through a coronavirus illness. We've been in for over a month now and it looks like it may be another month inside. But, we won't get the virus if we stay home.i have heard services like that can be hit and miss on what they have and deliver and only sometimes delivering part of what you order. i do know around here most places that offer grocery pickup have more than a 1 week wait to pick up groceries which is just insane. you are pretty much better off going to the grocery store to get what you need. the lines haven't even been too bad lately. the grocery store near me actually had no line when i stopped in there today which was the only reason i stopped.
Thanks, Red, I have also been eating PB&J with a glass of milk every night this week. I still have a jar left, but had to order strawberry jam from Amazon. I just ordered some frozen beef from Omaha Steaks. I have the freezer space and have not been able to get beef regularly around here. They ship with dry ice in an insulated polystyrene container.Cool, glad you got your delivery.
I was at Target a few weeks ago and they had bread and peanut butter, which kind of surprised me. I've eaten more PB&J in the last few weeks than I have in the last 10 years I've used up one jar, but still have one more on the shelf (stuff I had already, not hoarding). But it will have to be on my list of items to replenish before they are almost out.
The GF wanted pizza from Pizza Hut. Usually I'll pick one up at Sams or Aldi and add a little garlic, some mushrooms, sweet peppers, some onion, artichoke hearts on her side and some extra cheese depending on what we have on hand. It had been a while since we ordered so I was surprised to find that during checkout you have to include the tip and it started at 25%. I normally go 20% when we're out to eat so it seemed a bit excessive to me that I had no option other than go myself. If it was me wanting the pizza I would have just driven over and picked it up but I wasn't in any mood to leave the house so I hit send.Yes, the 20% is on top of the other fees and makes it quite pricey. It's worth it to not get the virus and be hospitalized for 10 days or worse. We used to eat out for lunch twice a week so it evens out cost-wise.
