If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed I posted a photo of myself at the most lovely of dinners last week hosted by Google Express. The company was great (other mom bloggers and influencers), the food was amazing (Serafina Boston – SO good), and the subject was interesting. We learned about Google Express and the point was clear: get the items you need in same or next day delivery – so convenient.
Have you ever run out of wipes, computer paper, or the only bread your child will eat a sandwich on and had no time to get to the store to replace it? Google Express. Or, like me, use bottles and bottles of sunscreen in the summer and then find one day after you’ve cut the bottle in half with scissors you maybe have 2 days left before you’re out? Google Express. I found myself out of sunscreen this week so hopped on at 9pm at night to order and by 9:30am the next day (just in time to get to the playground) I had a bottle waiting at my door.
Google Express worked great for me and I loved trying it in this sort of “emergency” way to really test the speed of delivery. Turns out, they’re right! A few things…
– The way it works is you search for an item on Google Express or item type (ie. sunscreen), or search by store. Locally, Google Express delivers items from Walgreens, Costco, Stop & Shop, and more.
– Your first 3 months of use are free, thereafter subscriptions are $10/month or $95/year.
– Delivery is free on purchases of $15 or more at each store.
– Ordering is pretty straightforward BUT make sure to read through their “substitutions” disclaimer in your cart. In a nutshell, if you allow substitutions in the off chance the item you order is out of stock at the store, they will choose something similar to complete your order. For me, that would be fine with say, ketchup, but with my sunscreen I knew exactly which brand I wanted and did not allow for substitutions. Just something to look out for as the default is to allow for substitutions.
