I often get asked if having groceries delivered through Peapod is a good deal.  To be completely honest with you, I think it depends on your situation.

Peapod grocery delivery service is a luxury, because you can avoid dragging kids through the store, hunting down products in the store, using up fuel, and eliminate the need to find time to hit the store (or stores).

What should you know about Peapod?

  • There is a required $60 minimum order for each purchase.

  • There are delivery fees ranging from $6.95-$9.95 depending on your total purchase amount. You can earn FREE delivery for referring friends.

  • In addition, there is a fuel surcharge that changes based on fuel prices.
  • Though it’s optional, most tip the delivery man.
  • You can select a delivery time from the available delivery times in your neighborhood and be there to accept your groceries.

  • There are Weekly Specials and Sales just like translational grocery stores.
  • You can track your total as you shop to make sure you stay within your budget.
  • Peapod accepts manufacturer coupons that meet the guidelines of their coupon policy.
  • Peapod is a SavingStar and UPromise participating store.
  • Peapod doubles coupons up to $0.99 everyday unless otherwise specified on the coupon.
  • If you order ahead and have it delivered 7 days after you place your order, prices will be adjusted to reflect current prices, so you  may not get the sale prices you expected.

How does Peapod compare to standard grocery stores?

Let’s do a comparison! Prices below are all using the best price available in this week’s current ad after sales and coupons. It’s a best possible case scenario, but could be repeated this week if you have the coupons.

Highlighted prices are not on sale this week and are using standard prices.

Keep in mind, without the New Member Coupon, the total for Peapod would be $107.84. However, many customers report getting $5-$10 off coupons good on their next order with their order conformations.

So, is Peapod a good deal?

Yes, if…

  • You plan well, base your list around the best sales, and compare prices.
  • Factor in additional fees and/or have a coupon code to balances these fees.
  • Use additional savings such as coupons, rebates, and SavingStar.
