What if you could get home delivery for items from your local stores — like drugstores, pet stores or wholesale clubs, for example?
That’s what Google Express essentially enables you to do. And right now you can test out the service for three months for free.
A Google Express membership costs $10 a month or $95 a year, but Google is currently offering a free three-month trial to people who are new to the service. You just have to sign up by Jan. 31.
Google describes Google Express as “an online marketplace that connects shoppers with popular retailers,” enabling to you “shop from an array of popular stores, all in one place.”
The company explains:
You get fast delivery of a wide variety of essentials, from apparel and electronics to pantry staples such as bread and cereal. Depending on your area, delivery day availability and the retailer you’re shopping from, your order may arrive the same day you place your order, the following day, in 2 days or in 3 days.
Google Express will handle arranging for a delivery company to bring your purchases to you.
To find out which retailers in your area are available through Google Express, just visit the Google Express home page, where you’ll be asked to enter your ZIP code. You can also change the ZIP code that will then appear in the upper right corner of the home page by clicking on it.
If you sign up for the free trial, you will be asked for payment information as part of the sign-up process. However, you won’t be charged until the end of the three months, according to the terms and conditions of the freebie. You can also end the free trial at any time during the three months with no penalty.
