Kroger's ClickList Program

 photo Krogers ClickListProgram_zpslwgpzrmi.jpg

Kroger has an online ordering program called Click List. Basically, you order your groceries online and then schedule a time to go pick them up. This a-maz-ing program is now in Shelbyville at the Kroger on Boone Station Road! 

Here are some key points:
  • Your first three orders are FREE, orders after that are $4.95.
  • Browse through the products online and add what you want to your cart. 
  • Your 'favorite' products, recently purchased products, and sale products are visible for easy access.
  • You get to schedule your pick up day and time!
  • Drive around back to the loading docks at your scheduled time and your groceries will be loaded into your car for you! 
  • You can use your debit or credit card, which will be charged on the day of pick-up.
  • You can use digital coupons to save money!

Read all about it and even watch a how-to video here.

I can't wait to try it! It will definitely help reduce impulse buying and make shopping easier!
