Got 100lbs of rice for $26 - delivered!
« on: May 21, 2016, 07:18:14 PM »
Fellow Mustachians,

I found a promotion for a service Google Express in my area, offering a $15 promotion and decided to use it to buy 100 lbs of rice at Costco, which came to a total of $26 for a 100 lbs supply - delivered to my doorstep !

I am super thrilled about the convenience and savings. This will last at least one year and having rice is super delicious, healthy, and not the least to say economical.

Awesome job! I had an offer like that, lost track of it and let it expire. I'm going to live vicariously through your excellent use of the costco google express offer.

I could not find that offer.  However, they offer delivery from Costco for $4.99 or you can sign up for delivery from all of their stores for $95 a year or $10.00 a month, with a free, three month trial.  Costco is close to a gallon of gas per round trip, about $2.50 at Costco.   It's also over an hour of time in traffic and in line.  So I signed up for the trial.  Now the 25 pound bags of cat food and 35 pound jugs of litter will be delivered to my porch.  No more having to ask for help loading the heavy stuff at Costco or dragging stuff from the driveway into the house when I get home.  At least for the next three months.

Nice man.  Make sure to keep those in an air-tight container so they don't get infected by those little rice bugs!

Instacart or google express are both in bigger cities. Maybe a few more.  If outside of bigger cities, doubt you will get service (yet).
