At its core, Costco is still a grocery store, albeit a big one with big packages that also stocks lots of non-grocery stuff. For those days when you just need to stock up on kitchen and household staples without the crowds and without the distraction of row upon row of big-screen TVs, Costco offers the option of having groceries delivered to your doorstep.
Here’s how it works: Have nonperishable groceries and household supplies delivered for free within two days for orders over $75 placed on Costco.com. This service isn’t available in Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. In a hurry? In most metropolitan areas, you can get free same-day delivery on grocery orders of $35 or more, including perishable items. You must be home to receive delivery, which is provided for Costco by Instacart, a service that handles delivery for multiple retailers (from CVS to Safeway). To avoid additional delivery fees, place your order through Costco.com.
