UPDATE (April 17, 2020): This offer has been changed due to the pandemic and high demand. It’s currently $10 off an annual membership with the promo code below.
Have you used Shipt? I’m a relatively new member and I can’t believe it took me so long to discover the benefits of this amazing same-day delivery service. (Shout out to my neighbor Jenna who not only got me hooked but also hooked me up with her Shipt promo code, which earned me the annual membership for $50 off, which I’m about to do for you too, so read on!)
These days, there’s practically nothing you can’t get delivered straight to your front door, from diapers to dinner. (At the time of publication, DoorDash had 3,531 restaurants in Los Angeles alone to choose from!) Instead of fighting through the crowds at the grocery store on busy weekends, I order groceries online and have them delivered when it’s convenient. Instead of carting large items like boxes of diapers or heavy things like laundry detergent home myself, I can have them arrive on my front doorstep. Some may call this the height of laziness, but for me, it’s a luxurious convenience. Delivery services have made life so much easier, leaving more time for me to spend with my family.
Shipt: Same-day delivery
I recently discovered Shipt (acquired by Target in 2017) and I love it! Shipt offers same-day delivery (with a minimum order spend) from local stores in as little as one hour. In my neighborhood, I can shop from Target, CVS, Vons, Northgate Market, Smart & Final, Petco, 99 Ranch and Office Depot and Office Max. (Online, you can enter in your zip code to see what local stores are serving your area.) You can shop for whatever you need and have it delivered as quickly as one hour later. The service is especially handy if you’re cooking and realize you are missing ingredients or if you run out of a household essential and don’t have time to run out and pick it up. I’ve got two little ones at home so there’s no such thing as a quick trip to the store to pick something up. Shipt makes it possible to get what I need without wasting time pleading with my toddler to cooperate so I can run a quick errand. In fact, a version of this scenario is precisely what prompted founder Bill Smith to start Shipt in the first place.
I mostly use Shipt to shop from Target and I love that the service is integrated right into the Target app. So while you’re browsing the app, it’ll tell you if the item is eligible for Shipt’s same-day delivery.
I also love to use Shipt when I’m traveling home after being away for a while. Before leaving home, we always make sure we’ve eaten up all the perishables in the fridge but that means the fridge is essentially empty when we get home. With Shipt, I can place an order for milk, eggs, fruit, veggies and other items that we need and have them delivered as soon as we arrive home.
Shipt promo code
An annual Shipt membership is $99 for unlimited deliveries but with my referral code, you can get the yearly membership for $49. When you sign up using my Shipt promo code (Fbt7d), I’ll get $50 towards future Shipt purchases but once you’re a member, you will also get a personal code to share with friends and family so you too can offer them 50% off their membership and you’ll get $50 back for every person who signs up.
I’ve been an Amazon Prime member for years and two-day shipping is great. But when you need things right away, you can’t beat Shipt. Being able to try it out for just $49/year was what convinced me to give it a try, but it’s definitely worth it, even at $99 for the annual membership. It’s really been a game-changer for me so I hope you enjoy it, too!
