It is official! You can now get same-day delivery at Target, thanks to Shipt. Target acquired the grocery delivery service in late 2017 for $550 million and announced their plan to roll out same-day delivery for Target shoppers in 2018. Over the last few months, Shipt has been prepping for this moment and now it is here.
If you live in New Jersey, Shipt is now available and offering 50% off the cost of same-day shipping. Until August 9, New Jersey shoppers can get the shipping service for $49, which is half off the retail price of Shipt( $99). The service gives members free shipping on all orders over $35. Any order under $35 has a $7 shipping fee tacked on, so it is pretty much always worth it to shop big!
Shipt users let customers place their orders using the app, then the Shipt employees will select the items from the Target store and deliver it to the customers. While Shipt is now available at Target, it is a wholly owned subsidiary of Target and continues to run independently, offering same-day delivery services to other retailers as well.
Shipt is available at select Target locations in:
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey
- New Mexico
- North Carolina
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
New York is the next state that Shipt for Target will roll out in. New Yorkers, keep an eye out to see if you can get the same 50% off deal that New Jersey shoppers can get.
