Here’s some good news for Aldi shoppers! Your go-to store for organic food, European cheese and other recommended buys at remarkable prices is now offering delivery via Instacart around the country.
The company’s pilot program tested out Instacart delivery in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Dallas and Chicago. It proved to be an epic success, with responses described as “overwhelmingly positive.” Now the service is rolling out to roughly 5,000 ZIP codes in 35 states (including 75 major markets, such as San Diego, New York City, Miami, Raleigh and Minneapolis). You should be able to sign up for grocery delivery near you in time for Thanksgiving!
How Aldi grocery delivery works
Through the Instacart partnership, you’ll be able to order whatever you’d usually buy at Aldi via Instacart’s website or app. (Including packaged foods plus fresh fruit and vegetables, organic and antibiotic-free meats and more.) Instacart shops for you, picking up all the items you ordered and then delivering them to your home.
Here’s what you have to do:
- Create your Instacart account
- Enter your delivery ZIP code
- Shop for your everyday Aldi products
- Choose a delivery window—anywhere from an hour or up to a week later
- Check out!
The service is reported to cost $5.99 plus a slight surcharge on Aldi products vs. in store. You can skip the delivery fee by paying $14.99 a month for an Express Membership through Instacart, but that’s probably best for super-frequent shoppers.
