Congratulate me…after over a week of trying at all hours of the day and night, I was able to schedule a Peapod delivery two weeks from now. I haven’t had any luck with the same efforts at Whole Foods via Amazon Prime. In this area, unlike some other regions, no preference is given to long-term online customers like myself, though such courtesies as early store hours for seniors do nothing for us disabled customers who can’t get to the store.
You need to fill your online cart before you request a delivery slot, because it isn’t secured until you check out and pay. Someone else will get the slot if they pay before you do. These supermarkets announced weeks ago that they are expanding their delivery capacities but so far, I see no evidence of this. So it’s wise to think weeks ahead, and in the case of Peapod, place a large order. You can modify it until the previous evening, but if in the interim, they run out of your items and your total drops below the $60 minimum, you lose your slot.
