Which Grocery Delivery Service is Best for me?

The cost and process for having your groceries delivered varies depending on the company you order from. Here are a few things to know before choosing your delivery service and ordering your groceries:

  • Some grocery delivery services, like Amazon Prime Now and Shipt, require memberships with monthly or annual fees to get started. Other companies offer optional memberships for frequent shoppers to take advantage of free delivery. 
  • Without a membership, you can expect to pay a per-delivery fee of around $8-$10. In addition to shipping, some companies also charge a small service fee.
  • For individual products, you may see price markups set by the retailer when shopping through Instacart or Shipt. Direct retailers with grocery delivery services like Walmart and Kroger are more likely to offer the same in-store pricing.
  • When it comes to actually placing your order, most of the grocery delivery services below can be accessed online or through an app on your iOS or Android device.
  • Once you’ve signed in or indicated where you’ll need your groceries delivered, you’ll be able to select products to order, keep track of what’s in your cart and watch your running total. You’ll also be able to apply digital coupons, search for sales and price compare while you’re shopping. Read more...

 

 

How to Buy Medicines Safely From an Online Pharmacy

How can you tell if an online pharmacy is operating legally? The FDA’s BeSafeRx can help you identify and avoid fake online pharmacies.

Signs of a Rogue Online Pharmacy -- Beware of online pharmacies that:

  • Allow you to buy prescription medicine without a valid prescription from your health care provider.
  • Do not have a U.S. state-licensed pharmacist available to answer your questions.
  • Offer very low prices that seem too good to be true.
  • Send spam or unsolicited email offering cheap medicine.
  • Are located outside of the United States or ship worldwide.

These pharmacies often sell medicines that can be dangerous because they may:

  • Have too much or too little of the active ingredient you need to treat your disease or condition.
  • Not contain the right active ingredient.
  • Contain the wrong or other harmful ingredients.

The active ingredient is what makes the medicine effective for the illness or condition it is intended to treat. If a medicine has unknown active ingredients, it could fail to have the intended effect, could have an unexpected interaction with other medicines you are taking, could cause dangerous side effects, or may cause other serious health problems, such as serious allergic reactions.Also, these medicines may not have been stored properly, such as in a warehouse without necessary temperature controls, which may cause the medicine to be ineffective in treating the disease or condition for which you are taking it.
