Here at DealNews, we believe that immediate gratification is one of the great joys in life. And until October 20, Google Express offers a $10 credit on orders of $10 or more via coupon code "WOOT3". (Some exclusions may apply.) That's the first free credit we've seen at Google Express, so here's how to make the most of it.
What is Google Express?
Google Express offers quick delivery of items from a variety of retailers such as REI, Target, Adorama, Costco, Whole Foods, and Barnes & Noble. Your order comes all together, saving you the hassle of running errands around town, and it can arrive in just a few hours. (Some deliveries may take up to two days.) You pay through Google Wallet, and members get free delivery on eligible orders. (For non-members, delivery charges start at $4.99; a free 3-month trial membership is available, but will auto-renew if you don't cancel it.)
So It's Like [This Other Service]?
Google Express is similar to some grocery delivery services like Peapod, Shipt, Instacart, and Postmates, but Amazon Fresh is its biggest competitor by far. Google Express costs $95 a year; Amazon Fresh is available only to Prime members, and Prime costs $99 a year, so Amazon Fresh is slightly more expensive up front. But Prime also has a ton of other benefits, like Prime Video, Prime Music, and of course the free shipping program.
Amazon Fresh also delivers highly time-sensitive items like milk and frozen foods. But Google Express offers a wider range of home items, like electronics, strollers, and bedding. Plus, Google Express allows you to link loyalty cards, so you can earn Kohl's Cash or Gymboree Rewards while you shop.
Where Is It Available?
Google Express delivers to parts of New York and California, in major cities like Chicago and Boston, and in several states along the East Coast. Because the service is constantly expanding, it's best to just enter your zip code and see if it's available. If not, you can request an email notification when Google Express hits your area.
