By now I am sure you have heard of several retailers offering online grocery pick up service. Kroger has also joined in with their ClickList service. These services all offer convenience on a routine task. But I believe Kroger ClickList offers more than just convenience to help you save time and money. First of all let’s see how it works.
How to Place an Order with Kroger ClickList
- Visit Kroger.com/clicklist, sign in and start your order
- Build a cart, select a pick-up time/location and place an online order
- Next, an associate carefully choses your items, then stores them in the proper temperature zones until you arrive for pick up
- You drive up to a convenient pick up area and receive the order without leaving the car

Tips for Placing Your Kroger ClickList Order
The process is really quite simple, just load up your cart! But here are a couple tips to mention.
Know the Sale – All items will be priced at whatever the sale price is when picking up your order. So just be sure you know where you are in the sale dates. Items that are on sale from the Kroger ad will be noted on ClickList with a “yellow” sale tag. This also includes Mega Sale items! YAY! The only thing is that Mega Sale items do not have another notation that they are participating items. So be sure you watch my Kroger matchups to know what items are included and keep count! Also long as you buy the right amount of items, you will receive the per item discount for the Mega event items.
Substitute Items- You can check that you don’t mind having an item substituted if the one you ordered is out of stock. So for example, you ordered Kroger canned corn, but it’s out of stock- so they would substitute for a can of Green Giant corn. Just note that you will pay the price of the substituted item.
Make Notes on Meat and Produce– You can add specific instructions to every item you select. I don’t think this is really necessary for all categories, but great for meat and produce. For example, when ordering bananas, you can specify green bananas only. Or if ordering deli meat, you can specify half pound of turkey thinly sliced. This would also be good for substitutions. So if you want a beef roast, but don’t really care what kind of cut, you could make a note that a certain cut could be substituted.
What Sets ClickList Apart
COUPONS! -This is the number one selling point for using ClickList in my opinion. The fact that yes you can use coupons with ClickList is a big deal (and something other services don’t offer). I always say the #1 way to save money on groceries is by using a coupon on a sale item. On my purchase I was able to use newspaper insert manufactures coupons, printable coupons and Kroger customer appreciation mailer coupons (including one of those $5 off $50 coupons). Simply hand the associate your coupons and they will take them in to apply them to your order. When they come back, you pay and are on your way!
You Will Get a Register Receipt – (This is a close second on my fave things about ClickList). You may be thinking what’s the big deal on getting a receipt. Other services actually do not provide an actual register receipt… so that means you can’t take advantage of grocery rebate app offers. BUT, since Kroger ClickList gives you a printed register receipt (looks just like as if you went through the checkout in store) you can stack up the savings! In addition to those coupons you will be able to submit for the offers in your favorite rebate apps! YAY!
Connected Kroger Plus Account – Having your Kroger Plus card connected to your ClickList order is great for two reasons. First, it allows you to fill your cart faster. ClickList will show you recommended items based on your favorites and recent purchases. It’s kind of interesting to see what’s in your “favorites” list (yep, there’s my mommy treat Diet Dr Pepper! LOL!). Also, having your Plus card connect means you will receive the sale prices (including Mega Sale discounts!) and earn fuel points for your purchase. AND of course digital coupons! Any applicable Kroger digital coupons will be discounted from your order automatically.
Exclusive ClickList User Digital Offers – In addition to the regular Kroger digital coupons (like Free Friday offers, 25 Merry Days and all the rest of the Kroger.com digital coupons) ClickList users will occasionally receive exclusive digital offers via email. The email will open to a special landing page where you can download high value discounts in specific items on your ClickList order. For instance, recently they offered a “Free Oreo Truffle Kit”. Users were able to download digital offers for FREE Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese, Oreo Cookies and a bar Bakers Chocolate (a $8.50 value!). LOVE that!
NEW! Same Day Pickup! – Starting in 2017, Kroger ClickList is offering same day pick up on your orders! You just need to give them 4 hrs (and depends on if slots are open as well). This is another game changer, IMO. So if you are making your dinner plans in the morning and realize you are missing a few ingredients- just place your order! And boom, pick up and dinner prep is saved!
I am so excited about what a game changer this service is. “See” for yourself in the following Facebook LIVE videos: The first shows behind the scenes and announces the same day service (please note, giveaway has ended). The second video shows real time how a pick up works.
