Enjoy 50 percent off groceries, other household essentials
In alignment with our Scoop on Savings segment, here is a deal you will not want to miss.
For a limited time only, Groupon is offering a $40 Google Express voucher for just $15.
Google Express is an online shopping site that delivers from big box retailers directly to your home. Everyday essentials are available without the need to make a trip. Shop stores like Costco, PetSmart and Walgreens. Download the app to add items to your cart on the go or browse on your desktop. Check out once no matter how many stores you shop from. Delivery is based on where you live and ranges anywhere from overnight to three days.
Additional stores available on Google Express include: Whole Foods Market, Bed Bath & Beyond, buybuyBaby, L’Occitane, Guitar Center, Fry’s Electronics, Road Runner Sports, Sur La Table, Payless ShoeSource and more. Stores vary by location.
Here's how it works:
1) Purchase Groupon voucher here.
2) To start shopping on Google Express, visit here.
It's just that simple.
Some additional things to consider:
1) Choose all of your items from one store otherwise, you will face an approximate charge of $5 for shipping and handling from each store.
2) You are limited to one voucher per Groupon account. If you have two Groupon accounts, you may purchase a second voucher, but you will need to use a different email address and credit card when you make your Google Express purchase.
I also found that Google Express charged the full amount to my credit card and did not originally seem to take the voucher into account. According to the Google Chat Representative I spoke with, the charges are merely authorizations and disappear within seven to 10 business days. More details on authorization charges from Google Express can be found here.
