Just found this site and I'm thinking of using it. www.usgrocer.com/ It has free shipping for all purchases over $25.

Anyone ever do this before?

Prices seem too high, the supermarket is cheaper by far. Maybe if you lived in Alaska it may be reasonable.

my mother shops online and loves it but you need to watch the sell by dates on the food as this is how they get rid of the stuff that is going out of date soon .

but it is a great way for older people who cannot get out or have no family to shop online or if you live a three day camel hike from the shops

Yes. Just looked up some of the items I buy at the store, and the prices at the website above are at least double of what I pay per item. No way would I order from that site.

I looked up a random item and got hotsauce. It's like $.67 where I live and nearly $4.00 per bottle on that site. I don't even remember AK having prices that bad.

I have no transportation and my legs are shot to hell. A taxi to and from the grocery store would run me $14. So, for the past few years I've been picking up food from the local store (a three minute walk). The prices online are comparable, with some cheaper than the store, and offer more of a variety for me.

My wife uses Peapod. We like it. Saves time and no impulse buying.

I'm in the uk, I buy organic so a little more expensive, but NO delivery charge!


Oh, and my food doesn't poison me.

I just picked up a can of Dinty Moore Beef Stew (20 OZ.) at my local store. I paid $3.99.

If I bought a case online it would come to $3.94 per can. Plus, I wouldn't have to lug my groceries all the way home. It's a definite plus for me.

What I'm more interested in is if anyone's ever gotten screwed by these companies?

I've been doing it for years, I've never been screwed but I did get a wrong item once, it was low fat cheese instead of full fat, not bad considering I've ordering thousand of items over the years.

Usually the delivery comes from the warehouse and the pickers go around with a shopping list, anything they don't have they usually substitute with something similar, very rarely happens though...

Bilbo....something or other up ^^ there was about on the nail, in the uk anyways. Super markets pile all the goods that are almost past the sell by date into the online shoppers basket. They also switch brands on you claiming they've run out of the brand you wanted.
Looking at the prices on the site you linked to It would probably be cheaper for you to bulk buy localy and use a taxi, or pay a neighbor to take you to the shops?
