Peapod by Giant Review & Coupon: Online Grocery Shopping Helps Me Stick to My List 

I just did my weekly grocery shopping. (I know, boring start but please keep reading, it gets better)

It took me about 30 minutes, I saved over $15.00 with store specials and coupons, and I never left my house.

I spent a little over $100, got enough stuff for the week, and even organic meats, fruits, and veggies.

I KNOW!!!

I usually spend $200 even buying things on sale. But because I can see my cart filling up online I know just how much I've spent and it's easier to stick to my list.

I can see my Peapon online grocery shopping bill as I shop

Plus, I don't have to do all the lugging in the cart, onto the counter, into the car, then into the house.

My groceries will be delivered to me tomorrow between 12:00 and 2:00 pm and because I chose that time... I got $1 off my order because it was a 'green' delivery time!

Seriously????

Peapod by Giant is rockin my sock with this online grocery and delivery thing.

Recently I went on a tour of the facility and got to see first-hand the fresh selection of meats, veggies, fruits, even deli items. I got to see the people who hand-pick the items. And I got to see the UPS-based technology that goes into their delivery driver scheduling.

 Peopod pickers wear finger barcode scanners to keep your order moving - cool!

 Organic broccoli stays fresh in the chilled area

 Really juicy cubes of beef (all-natural too)

Boar's Head deli meats are sliced thin or regular...you choose!A few things to note and a coupon for your first Peapod order

Here are a few very cool things I learned on this tour:

Peapod by Giant has a full selection of organic fruits, vegetables, bread, and even all-natural beef and poultry

The produce you get from Peapod is actually fresher than the produce you get inside a grocery store because Peapod produce is kept chilled at the perfect temperature and right up until it's delivered to you.

You can arrange to be home for delivery or not. If you are not home (unattended) chilled items are delivered in their own fancy cooler with freezer packs.

Peapod does accept coupons in addition to having weekly specials, and they even have access to printable coupons right on their site.

Contest: 100K Miles on my Van means I'm heading to Giant for Cereal

Yes, my minivan has over 100,000 miles on it. I've never owned a car this long and I've never had a car with over 100,000 miles on it.

I want a new car.

I want a hybrid.

So what am I going to do about it?

I'm heading to Giant food THIS WEEK (through April 29th) to buy 5 General Mills items and bring a reusable shopping bag!

Giant Food has partnered with General Mills to keep us in the spirit of green to celebrate Earth Day all month long. All you have to do is purchase 5 participating General Mills items with your Giant Bonus Card and bring a reusable shopping bag for your chance to win a 2010 eco-friendly Hybrid car.

You can also head to your local Giant (or Stop & Shop) store to fill out a sweepstakes form but I think buying the cereal is yummier.

Here are more details:

From April 16-29, buy 5 participating General Mills items with your Giant card, use a re-useable shopping bag and you’ll be automatically entered to win. There are two different sets of participating General Mills items for each week of the promotion (participating brands listed below). No purchase is necessary. You can enter without making a purchase by completing an official entry form at your local Giant store. The more you buy the better your chances are to win! Limit one entry per visit. Open to residents of MA, RI, CT, NH, NJ, NY, MD, DE, VA or DC and individuals at least 18 years old. For details about the sweepstakes, see in-store for complete rules.

Here's a short list of participating General Mills items:

Cascadian Farms Ceral

Cascadin Farms Frozen Vegetables

Progresso Light, Reduced Sodium and High Fiber Soups

Betty Crocker Boxed Muffins

Cheerios

Cinnamon Toast Crunch

Honey Nut Cheerios

Kix

Lucky Charms

Yo-Plus, Yoplait Fiber One or Yoplait Delights multi pak

Pillsbury Grand Biscuits

Nature Valley Crunchy, Sweet & Salty, Trail Mix and Yogurt Bars

Green Giant Boxed Vegegable or Prepared Vegetables

Green Giant Simply Steam Seasoned Vegetables or Rices

and tons more.

This contest is easy for me because I love General Mills products and I have a whole collection of reusable bags that I keep in my car.  So, I'm buying cereal to hopefully win a car - but I'd love to know what you've done to try and win a car!
