For years, Costco’s two-day delivery service was limited to nonperishables. Now, you can order select cold and frozen foods as well.

CostcoGrocery now promises two-day service on items such as:

  • Meat
  • Poultry
  • Seafood
  • Deli
  • Cheese and dairy
  • Beverages

CostcoGrocery has been around for a few years, allowing members to order everything from coffee and snacks to cleaning supplies and bath tissue.

Such orders are delivered within two days or, if you select the Instacart delivery option, the same day.

In the past, all nonperishables were limited to the same-day service. And that service is only available in certain ZIP codes

But now, two-day delivery of cold and frozen foods is being rolled out to a wider section of Costco membership. The two-day service is available nationwide, with the exceptions of Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico.

However, you may be surprised to learn that not everything at Costco is a good buy. For example, Money Talks News contributor Gael F. Cooper never buys coffee at Costco. As she explains:

“Those 3-pound cans and bags of whole beans or ground coffee are probably perfect for when Pam on “The Office” has to stock the Dunder Mifflin break room, but for our small family, they’re too much and not worth the storage space.”
