Today I placed my first grocery order with Shipt for shopping at Meijer's.  Some of my A Single Ray of Hope LLC clients have been asking if I've used it so I thought I best give it a go.  I placed my order at 5:30 pm and requested the delivery window between 7:00 pm - 8 pm.  I must admit I was pretty geeked about this since I am normally the one doing the shopping for my clients.  

The Shipt application is easy to use.  As soon as I placed my order I received a message telling me my shopper's name was Briana which included her photo.  At 6:26 pm, Briana texted me introducing herself and saying she was heading to Meijer's.  At 7:01 pm, I received a text saying an item I requested wasn't available and she offered me an alternate which I accepted.  At 7:05 pm she texted saying she had everything on the list and was heading to check-out.  At 7:20 pm she texted saying the order was complete and she was on her way.  She arrived at 7:33 pm with my groceries and a smile.

I asked if I could take her photo for my blog and gave her my business card so she wouldn't think I was a stalker or something!  I asked a few questions about how she liked working for Shipt and she said she loved it.  She works a day job and does this in her "spare time".

I must say that I was quite impressed.  I loved the communication....it is exactly how I would be communicating with my own clients if I was doing their shopping.  All the items I ordered were correct and in good shape.

I am an Mperks user and was thrilled to see that I could connect that to my Shipt account.  So prior to placing my order, I reviewed the coupons available on Mperks to be sure I ordered whatever sale items I wanted.  I am also a Meijer's credit card holder so of course that is how I pay at Meijer's as they offer good rewards and offer a .10 off on each gallon of Meijer's gas which helps with all the miles I drive for my business. It's a WIN WIN WIN!

Thanks, Briana!  Thanks, Shipt!
