Last week I had the chance to hang out with all my favorite Chicago blogger babes at the glamorous Celeste on Hubbard Street. It was so great catching up with everyone and learning about a new must-have – Google Express.
With Google Express, you get same-day or overnight delivery from local stores and popular retailers. Stores like Costco, Ulta, Walgreens, and more! I love the whole concept of it! I do a fair amount of online shopping, but sometimes you just need that same-day delivery.
I can think of a number of times when I’ve been trapped in the house with sick kids and just needed one or two things from the store. It’s such a hassle to drag them out of the house and to the store when they’re feeling miserable – and most the time it ends up being when the weather stinks, too. Two sick kids plus snow just to get toilet paper or cough syrup? No thank you!
Google Express is all about convenience. Any busy person, or even those unable to get out of the house – hello, moms with newborns and little ones! – would truly appreciate this service.
Right now Google Express only offers delivery within major cities, but they’ll be expanding on that service area soon.
At last week’s event, I was given credit to try out the service. I don’t live within the delivery area, so I had my order shipped to my brother’s place. I put in my order at 2 something in the afternoon, and by 9 p.m. that night, my package arrived. That’s fast!
If you’d like to give Google Express a try, use promo code EXPRESSCHICAGO to save $25! Please note that this applies only to first purchase and not to delivery fees or in-app purchases. Valid up to the first 2500 redemptions, while delivery slots last and until 8/7/15.
