If you have a Visa Infinite credit card, a new perk has hit your cadre of benefits. Starting this month, you’ll receive 3 free years of Shipt, an on-demand grocery and shopping delivery service.
A Visa Infinite credit card is any credit card with the Visa symbol with the word “Infinite” below it — generally, these are very premium credit cards such as the:
- Chase Sapphire Reserve®
- Ritz-Carlton Rewards® Card
- UBS Visa Infinite Credit Card
- Crystal® Visa Infinite® Credit Card
- U.S. Bank Altitude™ Reserve Visa Infinite® Card
With Shipt having a typical membership fee of $99 a year, when added up over 3 years, Visa Infinite cardholders will achieve a savings of about $300, making this a significant perk.
What Is Shipt?
Shipt is a delivery service serving stores like Bed Bath & Beyond, Costco, CVS, HEB, Meijer, Office Depot and Office Max, Petco, and Target. Similar to Postmates or Uber Eats, Shipt will shop for you and deliver your items for a fee.
Pricing is roughly $10 per order for grocery and other store deliveries, with various discounts available depending on the membership tier.
You are able to message your Shipt shopper through the app for any last-minute requests, and the shoppers are able to essentially purchase most items for you, including alcohol (though this may come at an additional fee).
What You’ll Get
With the $99 a year annual savings, you’ll get unlimited deliveries for free, so long as they’re over $35. This seems especially valuable if you tend to do multiple grocery runs or order a large number of items where it would be helpful to have them delivered.
Hot Tip: Once enrolled, you must use your eligible Visa Infinite card as the default payment method to receive free, unlimited deliveries on orders over $35.
The Fine Print
Your Shipt membership begins on the date that you enroll your eligible Visa card to your Shipt account. The offer expires on December 31, 2024, so you have several years to take advantage of it.
It’s worth noting that if you hold a current Shipt membership, you won’t want to cancel because doing so will make you ineligible for this current offer. According to the terms, “Existing Shipt members that enroll in the Offer start their free membership at the expiration of their current paid membership.”
If you hold a Visa Signature card, you’ll receive Shipt for free for 3 months, and then get a 50% off discount thereafter.
If you decide to keep your Shipt membership active beyond the free trial, you’ll be billed at whatever the current rate is at that time, so be sure to cancel your membership prior to the end of your trial if you’re not interested in renewing.
This $99 a year savings on Shipt membership is certainly a great perk if you hold an eligible credit card. Shipt can be especially valuable in large cities where it’s difficult to pick up everyday items, or for busy people who simply don’t have the time to leave their other responsibilities. While the free membership is only good for 3 years, it’s definitely worth trying out prior to expiration.
