This Shipt Promo Code Will Save You Big Money On Grocery Delivery
Shipt is a grocery delivery service, owned by Target, that provides same-day delivery from local stores. Members can choose either monthly or annual memberships, then cut the drive to the grocery store out of their life for good. And with a Shipt promo code, customers can use the service at a discount.
In this article, we’ll give you a brief guide to Shipt, its acquisition by Target, and how to sign up for the service using a promo code to save serious cash.
We’ll share two promo codes, one that can land you $20 off first order, and then a special promo code that can knock an annual fee down from $99 to $49.
A Brief Guide to Shipt
Shipt is a grocery delivery service that was founded in 2014 in Birmingham, Alabama, by Bill Smith. By 2016, they had expanded to nine states, initially targeting markets that didn’t have many options for grocery store delivery.
In December of 2017, Target acquired Shipt. The mega retailer paid $550 million for the company, but in good news for Shipt operators, the grocery delivery service was still allowed to pursue partnerships with other retailers, aside from Target. Target uses Shipt to provide grocery delivery for most of its locations, and Target has begun to phase out partnerships with other grocery delivery services like Instacart.
The company makes money by charging users for a Shipt membership, which entitles members to unlimited free deliveries on orders over $35 and same-day delivery, available as soon as one hour from your order time, in many markets.
Orders under $35 have a flat $7 delivery fee. A year membership costs $99, but monthly memberships are also available. (More on the membership types in the next section.)
Signing Up for Shipt
You can sign up for Shipt either on their website, Shipt.com, or on the Shipt app. For the purposes of this article, we’re going to use screenshots from Shipt.com, but the process is very similar on the mobile app.
To start, you first need to go to Shipt.com and enter your zip code.
A pop up will then come up, letting you know if Shipt is currently operating in your area. They’ll also let you know what stores are available in your area, and for annual new memberships, they’ll offer you two weeks free just for signing up.
If you want to keep going, tap “Get Started.”
On the next page, you’ll provide your email address and zip code. Enter those. Then pause … you’ll notice at the bottom of the box there’s a link asking “Have a promo code?”
DON’T SKIP THIS STEP.
Tap that, and you’ll be able to enter any of the promo codes listed below. Skip that, and you won’t be able to enter any promo codes later in the process.
After you’ve safely passed the promo code test, you’ll be prompted to choose the plan you want. They have a $99 plan, billed annually, which will work out to $8.25 a month. You can also choose a $14 monthly plan, billed monthly. Both can be cancelled at any time, but the annual plan doesn’t give prorated refunds. If you pay for an annual membership and cancel two months in, your membership will be active for the remaining 10 months.
If you want the two-week free trial on top of your promo code, you’ll have to select the annual $99 plan.
Once you’ve selected your plan, you’ll need to provide your full name, a password, and a credit card for the company to store. This card can be changed later, but they will need a card to activate your account.
Provide that info, and you’re done. By signing up, you’re agreeing to the company’s terms and conditions. You can click on a link at the bottom of that page to review these.
Shipt Promo Codes to Get You Started
As Shipt is eager to get into the grocery delivery space, they are offering lots of promos and coupon codes to entice users to download the app and sign up for a membership. The free two-week trial is available to anyone who signs up for the app, but there are other Shipt coupon codes available to save on groceries.
Remember, when entering your promo code, it will ask you to do so right at the start of the sign-up process. If you’ve already selected a plan and have offered payment info, you’ve gone too far. Tap back on your internet browser, and you can enter the promo code where you first entered your email and zip code.
Below are some Shipt promo codes to save, these codes are up to date as of 2020.
$50 off Your Annual Membership and $25 off Your First Order
To save $50 on membership fees and save $25 on your first order, you’ll need to sign up for a yearly membership and be a first-time user of the service. This promo code will also include the free 2-week trial that everyone gets with an annual subscription.
To use this promo, type in “ppHhW” when signing up.
You’ll see your savings for the membership fee when you complete your member order. You will see the $25 off your first order when you make your first purchase with the app. Again, this offer is only good for first-time shoppers who sign up for a yearly membership.
$20 off Any Order
If you aren’t springing for an annual membership, you can still save $20 on any order by using a special promo code that will apply to monthly memberships as well. Again, this promo code needs to be entered when signing up.
To use this promo, type in “ppHjb” when you sign up.
Remember that by not signing up for the annual membership, you won’t be eligible for the two week free trial.
Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve covered the birth of Shipt, how to sign up for the service, and two promo codes that can save you serious money on groceries. Let’s get to some FAQs.
1. Does my Shipt membership automatically renew?
Yes, memberships renew automatically, and if you don’t cancel your membership, it will charge your credit card. You can cancel your membership at any time, but there aren’t partial refunds. Likewise, if you cancel a monthly membership early, your membership will run until the end of the month, but you won’t be able to get refunded if you want to cut it short.
If you sign up for the trial for an annual membership and aren’t happy in your first two free weeks, you’ll need to cancel your membership before the free delivery trial is over, or the annual fee will be charged to your account.
2. What’s the best discount to use with Shipt?
The two promo codes listed above can’t be used together, so it all depends on which membership plan you’re interested in. If you’re willing to commit to a year of Shipt, saving $50 off a $99 fee is a major saving. A $49 annual fee breaks down to just over $4 a month with unlimited free grocery delivery on all orders over $35. That’s a really good deal.
3. How can I land a job shopping for Shipt?
Shipt is looking to hire Shipt Shoppers — the people who shop for Shipt and provide home delivery — in many markets. Learn about the job and how to apply.
