Exactly a year ago I moved from New York City to the burbs outside of Boston. City living was easy. Everything was a few blocks away and if not I counted on Google Express to deliver me my essentials the same day. While I got a nice backyard for my daughter to run around in, I lost the convenience of many things, including Google Express.
Well… yesterday I received some of the best news ever! Google Express expanded their service to many areas throughout the East coast. This included many residential areas in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. Upon hearing about this news, I immediately entered my suburban zip code into the Google Express website, and viola, they now deliver to my house. While I know most readers get excited about a gazillion point bonus, I was truly beyond excited that Costco, Walgreens, Toys R Us, etc. could all be delivered to my house same day (or the next day depending on availability).
So What Exactly is Google Express?
Google Express is an awesome service, run by Google obviously, where they will hand deliver purchased items from participating stores. Some stores include Costco, Target, Babies R Us, Kohls, Staples, Walgreens, Barnes & Nobles, etc. The exact stores depend on your location. With this service, you purchase your items directly through the Google Express site and you pay the exact price if you were to if shopping directly through that merchant. So you are never overpaying for an item which I love. If an item is on sale, then you are paying the sale price! To receive free delivery, most stores require a $15 minimum purchase, which is easy to do. Unfortunately though, you cannot purchase perishables.
Free Membership + Credits
Typically, this service costs $10 a month. Although if you sign up for a yearly membership, you get a slight discount at $95 for the year. Or, you can just pay $4.99 per delivery. New members, however, can sign up for a FREE 6 month trial (use promo code WELCOME). You can sign up here.
