An Instacart shopper accepts the order on his/her smartphone, uses the Instacart shopper app to guide them through shopping, and then delivers the order to the customer in the designated delivery timeframe.

I’ve used this myself a couple times. It’s great when you’re busy or, as many people are pointing our right now, you don’t want to catch the flu from walking around Walmart!
We’re all looking to save a little money too, so I say it’s worth it to try it at least ONCE so you can save $10 off your first order. I mean, that’s just 10 free dollars you’re missing out on if you don’t do it.
Leeds Walmart has online grocery pickup as does the Hwy 280 store. Trussville is launching SOON! (And rumor has it, by mid-year it will be a Springville too!)
How does it work? Order online, set a time to pick up your order, and they bring your order right out to the car to you! You can schedule a time to pick up your groceries! They do they hard part!
Here are some things you need to know and some answers to some complete untruths about Walmart Online Grocery Pickup:
You can’t use coupons BUT you can redeem cash back from all the cashback apps like Ibotta, SavingStar, Mobisave and Checkout51! So you can save a little more!
There are NO fees for using Online Grocery Pickup. There is NO MARKUP on the items. (Despite what anyone on Facebook tells you, it’s just not true.)
Don’t try to tip the people who load your groceries. It’s not allowed.
Some complaints are that it’s hard to get a pick up time because they fill up fast. That means the service is popular, which is good! They will adjust the supply to meet the demand – they will open up more pick up spots!
Try about 2 days out to “start your order”. As long as you pick your time and add at least one item to your cart, it will hold your spot. It will give you a deadline to complete your order (usually about 12 hours or so before your scheduled pick up time). You know how you go to the store and get a ton of stuff and come home and realize you forgot one thing? Yeah, treat your order like that – add everything you THINK you need and you’ll have about a day to add those things you forgot!
I purchased store brand items, things I didn’t have coupons on and items I knew Walmart had a good price on. So even without “coupons” I feel like I still did a good job saving – and on top of that I got $10 off my first order!

There is a new cash back app making a splash called MobiSave. You can sign up for it here. Or you can just download it from the App Store on your phone and sign up for an account from your phone.
You can use this app at Walmart, Publix, Winn-Dixie, Fred’s, Food Giant, Dollar General and any other grocer/convenience store! As long as the retailer carries the product the offer is for and prints you an itemized receipt after purchase, you can redeem cash back from MobiSave!
I’m actually really excited about this one. It has some good offers, it’s easy to use and you get PAID after every submission. You don’t have to wait to cash out after reaching a certain amount. Scan your receipt, select your offers and the money goes to your Paypal account no matter the amount!
Here are a few tips to get you started:
Shop anywhere! (Any store that prints an itemized receipt!)
Be sure to select your offers before you check out. (The directions state that you can select offers as you shop in the store but you need to have them all checked before you checkout).
Allow MobiSave to access your iPhone camera so it can snap your receipts.
Take clear snaps of your entire receipt.
Payments will be sent directly to Paypal in less than 24 hours!
If you do not have a PayPal account, you will receive an email from PayPal after your firstMobiSavesubmission with easy directions to help you open an account.
Here’s what I’ve learned after using it for awhile:
Offers come and go quickly so if you see something you think you might use, tap it to save it your “My Offers”. This saves it for you! Now you don’t have to worry about an offer being gone before you can get to the store and use it. Note that “My Offers” carts reset each weekSo if you select something one week but don’t redeem it, it will be cleared out of your offers. IF there are any of that particular offer still available you can easily re-add it to your offers and redeem it.
If you add something to “My Offers” and you really want it – don’t uncheck it! I learned this the hard way and missed out on two cash back offers because I unchecked them and when I went to put them back in “My Offers” they were gone.
Just because you have an offer in your cart you don’t have to redeem it. You can redeem some without redeeming all. This is where I messed up and lost out on offers. I thought when I got ready to redeem my receipt from one store that I could only have the offers in my cart for that receipt. So I took some out. But that’s not the case at all. After you snap your receipt, it will asked you which of your saved offers are on that receipt. You select the ones that are and the rest stay saved in your cart.
Here is a video to show you more about MobiSave!

I love shopping at Aldi! There isn’t one in St. Clair County (though I wish there were!) but the one in Trussville in the KMart shopping center on Chalkville Mountain Road is convenient enough and always worth the trip!
I was just in there TODAY (5/1/16), and was excited to see that the price of eggs and milk had dropped! Milk is always in my shopping cart when I stop at Aldi!
Here’s what I saw today:
Bagged Salad $0.69
Red Grapes $1.98 for 2 pounds!
Avocados $.69 each or 3/$1.99
Hamburger Buns 8pk $.85
White Bread Round Top Loaf $.85
(The picture is an older picture which is why it’s showing milk at $2.89). I have no idea how long these prices will last. This week’s ad runs until Tuesday so I assume you have until at least then to grab these super price!
