Churros and soft-serve not included.
Everybody’s favorite members-only superstore has partnered with grocery delivery service Shipt for a wholesale dream come true. You can now order from Costco and get your purchases delivered to your doorstep. Seriously, it’s that easy. The best part? This offer is open to Shipt customers, even if they are not Costco members.
In order for this new partnership to work, Shipt requires their employees to complete a training and become certified under Shipt’s account with Costco, which can only be used for Shipt shopping purposes. While you don't have to be a Costco member to use the new Shipt service, if you ARE, you can link your account for deeper discounts.
This is a total gamechanger when it comes to stocking up the entire house. We reached out to Shipt to see if some of the bigger homeware items available at Costco, like outdoor furniture and large electronics are eligible to be purchased through this service. The answer? Yes! Caveat: While it is permitted, it’s not necessarily encouraged.
Because Shipt customers receive a third-party receipt, versus one that is printed directly from Costco, it’s at the discretion of your local Costco if they will honor any returns or exchanges—and a brand new 64-inch television that you’ve decided isn’t a fit for your home is probably not an item that you’d be pleased to find yourself stuck with.
There currently is not a limit as to how many items you can purchase. Because Costco primarily sells enormously-sized items, any shipping snafus will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. It’s also worth noting that you cannot order anything from Shipt that requires an ID, whether it be tobacco products, alcohol, or prescription medication. So, yes, you’re going to have to go to the store to get your hands on that 48-pack of Kirkland Signature Light Beer. Tough, I know.
Whether you're looking for Costco benefits without a membership or you are a member and you’re just not up for the long lines and crowded parking lot, this new partnership between Shipt and Costco almost feels too good to be true. And maybe it is: You can't order free samples. And if we’re being honest, you can’t put a price on those addicting cocktail meatballs.
