Vons is firmly the #1 grocery retailer in Southern California. Groceries delivered in as little as 2 hours.
Vons, whose parent company is Safeway, offers same-day grocery delivery if you order before 8:30 a.m.
One of the biggest benefits of the Vons service is its “Shop by History” feature. Using a registered Club Card when you shop saves your purchases in your own personal online store. This makes shopping with Vons one of the best online grocery shopping experiences because it’s easier and faster than many similar services from other grocery delivery companies.
Vons and Safeway deliver groceries in many major U.S. cities and suburbs.
There are no membership fees, but there is a minimum order amount of $30.
How much does Vons delivery cost?
For purchases of $150 or more, Vons charges a $9.95 delivery fee in most areas. For purchases less than $150, the fee rises to $12.95. The minimum order amount is $49, and new customers get free delivery on their first online order.
No membership fees or long-term commitments. Same-day delivery is available if you order by 8:30 a.m. The organic fruits & vegetables options were not as plentiful as Amazon’s, but what Vons did have was fresh and tasty. The organic navel oranges were cheaper than Amazon’s, but the organic baby spinach was more expensive than Trader Joe’s. The groceries were delivered on time with no packaging beyond the regular plastic grocery bags.
I checked the “No substitutions” option, but they swapped my whole-grain wheat bread for a seedy loaf anyway. Because the online Vons didn’t carry some of my standard items - organic broccoli, Bubbies dill pickles, unseasoned rice-wine vinegar - I had to order more chewing gum than I wanted and bay leaves I didn’t need just to reach my $49 minimum. The accidental ordering of peppermint whipped cream was pure operator error.
Vons delivery is worth it for those who are extremely busy. It isn’t among the cheapest grocery delivery services - in fact, its fee is one of the highest - but because users can shop by history, the time spent placing orders online is minimal.
