Shipt Is Launching in Austin

Going to the grocery store is hard. There’s the parking lots that are about as hot as the surface of the sun; the weighing and coding of all your produce; the standing in long lines; the schlepping of your own bags! It’s too much—I’m getting tired just typing about it.

That’s why so many of us put it off and end up spending way too much money on bad takeout. But guess what: Something is happening in Austin tomorrow and it might just change your life for the better.

Shipt, an app-based grocery delivery service that is already in 26 cities around the country, is launching in Austin tomorrow, July 20. The company will offer grocery delivery from H-E-B stores across Austin, including Central Market locations.


There are a few things that make this delivery service unlike anything else out there. First of all, the membership model. If you sign up for Shipt, you pay $99 per year for unlimited grocery deliveries on orders over $35. There is never any surge pricing, even for deliveries during peak times or holidays. Secondly, you can get groceries delivered to your door 24/7. And thirdly, the coverage area is ginormous! They’ll come to Round Rock, Cedar Park, Pflugerville, and South Austin.

H-E-B and Central Market customers can order their groceries through Shipt’s mobile or desktop app and select a one-hour delivery window as soon as one hour after the order.

If you’re curious, here’s a very good reason to try it out: By signing up today you will get $25 off your first order!
