Same Day Home Grocery Delivery in the Denham Springs Area

by Becky on March 14, 2018

Is grocery delivery straight to your door the next big thing? It sure looks like it! In the past few days there have been a couple of big announcements about these services and their availability right here in Denham Springs:

First, Instacart is now serving the Denham area, providing same day home delivery in as little as an hour, from Rouses, CVS, and Petco. While these are the only local stores participating right now, no doubt new stores will be added. Your first delivery is free, too! Here is the link to try it out:

Check their site out closely when ordering, though, because they note that for some products, they charge more than what they cost in-store.

Target is now offering home delivery “in as little as an hour” to Denham through a service called Shipt. You’ll get UNLIMITED free same-day delivery on $35+ orders for a year (it’s $8 per delivery of orders under $35). The service is $49/year (intro price) plus they’ll give you a $15 credit when you spend $100 on your first order. There are some items they won’t deliver (mostly heavy items, patio stuff, etc.) and also please note that you can’t get the 5% off for paying by your RedCard when using Shipt. Here is the link for more info:

Walmart, of course, is jumping on the bandwagon, with an announcement today that they are expanding their same-day grocery delivery service. So if it’s not enough that you can order groceries online with them and they can bring them out to your car (if you haven’t tried this service yet, WOWFRESH will get you $10 off your first $50+ Walmart order with “curbside pickup”)… now they’re going to not just bring it to your car but to your home! By the end of the year, they hope to have this service available in 40% of their markets, and the cost will be $10, with a minimum order of $30. Hope Denham will be one of the areas they service, because y’all know how Walmart is — you go in to buy 3 things and end up with a full cart and a $150 total bill! I’m willing to bet that at least my readers in BR will have this before the end of the year.

Folks in BR will also have Amazon Prime Now delivery with free 2-hour delivery from Whole Foods before the end of the year. (They charge $8 for one-hour delivery.) In the meantime, if you have Amazon Prime, you can use Prime Pantry to get $6 per box delivery in 1-4 days. I tried it, and it was NOT very exciting to me. I ordered on a promo offer for $6 off (so basically free delivery) when you buy 5+ specific items, and they LOST my package, but it did turn up about 10 days later with a banged-up box!

Have you tried any of these services? Do they sound like something you WOULD try? It seems like for busy moms or folks who are older and find it difficult to get out and about, this would be especially intriguing, or for folks like me who have too much trouble with impulse shopping when you go into the store!
