Whole Foods curbside pickup is a fast and easy option for organic and fresh groceries. It’s also a creative way to get items that are out of stock at Walmart or Kroger.
Keep reading to find out how to make the most of your Whole Foods pickup order.
Does Whole Foods have curbside pickup?
Yes! And the first thing you’ll notice when you go to place a Whole Foods curbside order is that the experience is very similar to placing an Amazon order. It’s super easy.
Find out if there’s a Whole Foods pickup location near you.
Prime members get free Whole Foods grocery pickup.
If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you’ll receive free grocery pickup, no minimum purchase amount required! If you want an even faster option, you can pay $4.99 and your pickup order will be ready in 30 minutes.
Choose your substitutions at checkout.
If Whole Foods is out of the item you selected, your shopper will reach out about possible substitutions.
Or, you can choose your preferred substitution from a dropdown menu, including the option for no substitutions at all.
Select your Amazon Whole Foods pickup window at the last step.
Unlike competitors (Walmart), you can’t select your pickup window as the first step. You have to fill your Whole Foods cart up before you can choose a time.
The good news is that pickup times are easier to come by at Whole Foods than delivery times, which usually fill up quickly!
But I still recommend making a grocery list and adding a few items to your cart, then proceeding to checkout as if you’re done. After you choose a pickup time, go back and add the rest of your items quickly. This way you won’t waste time shopping only to find out there’s not an available time.
What’s the process for Whole Foods order pickup when I arrive at the store?
Before you leave your house, open your Whole Foods pickup confirmation email and check in. When you arrive at the store, park in one of the designated parking stalls for Whole Foods curbside pickup and follow the instructions on the parking sign. A Whole Foods associate will bring your order out to your car and put it in your trunk, totally contactless.
(Make sure to double check that your particular store offers curbside. Some Whole Foods stores require you to pick up your order inside the store.)
Can I use coupons with my Whole Foods order?
The only offers you can use with a Whole Foods pickup order are the coupons inside the app. They’ll be applied to your order automatically. Unfortunately, you can’t get a paper receipt to use with rebate apps.
Are prices the same online as in store?
Yes. There’s no additional markup on product prices for using Whole Foods curbside pickup.
