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!
