Costco trips bring out my procrastination tendency in a big way. I love the discounts and seemingly endless quantities of home goods, but schlepping them through the airplane-hangar-sized store? That’s a different story. So I was pumped to learn that Costco is now offering same-day or two-day delivery, which means that I can put off going to the physical store, well, forever.
Of course, same-day delivery comes at a premium. It’s available through Costco’s partnership with Instacart, which will charge you a 10% service fee, plus mark up the price of each item by 15 to 17%. That means, at the end of the day, you’ll be paying quite a bit more for your industrial-sized bag of Pirate’s Booty.
You can also opt for two-day delivery, which is free with a couple of stipulations: it’s only available for non-perishables (bye-bye, sheet cake) and your order has to total $75 or more. But considering I’ve never left Costco with a bill under three digits, and it’s usually a plan-ahead trip anyway, it sounds like a pretty great bargain to me.
Especially for someone dangerously close to running out of La Croix.
