If there is one thing that can make us feel like adults, it is grocery shopping. Sure, paying bills does that too but it also makes us wallow in our own tears for days after that. Grocery shopping is fun and if you don’t agree, you have been doing it wrong. But even the fun things can get a little boring sometimes, and we get that there are days where we just don’t want to change from our torn yet comfortable pyjamas and head to the supermarket. Or sometimes it’s simply the convenience of being able to order your groceries in the office and time them to be delivered when you get home.
You might not be aware, but we certainty have no dearth of options when it comes to online grocery stores and supermarkets. Let’s have a look at the best online grocery stores in Singapore and tips to save on purchases too.
If you’ve ever ordered groceries online or even done a search on Google, you will be aware of Redmart. It’s one of the biggest online grocery store in Singapore. From fresh fruits to alcohol to festive goodies, the store has everything that you can ask for!
The prices are quite reasonable and the site/app offers free delivery for orders above S$75. Orders below S$75 are charged a delivery fee of S$7. You earn Redmart credits for every purchase you make and these credits can be used to offset your next purchase.
2. FairPrice Online
FairPrice is another online delivery store that offers the best at the lowest. You need to register with the site before ordering, but you do not have any reason to worry as the registration is free. As we would expect, FairPrice Online has everything a grocery store or supermarket should have. You can get amazing deals with the weekly and exclusive promotions on the site.
Orders above S$150 are delivered for free. A delivery fee of S$10.70 and S$7.49 is charged for orders below and above S$60 respectively. You can also check the delivery slot for your order by entering your postal code.
3. Sheng Siong
Allforyou.sg is Sheng Siong’s entry into the online grocery shopping space. If you already love shopping at Sheng Siong, then you’ll be comforted by the fact that you can still purchase your favourite groceries, home appliances, healthcare and beauty products, and much more, without making a trip down.
The store has a wide variety of products in different categories! Want pure extra virgin coconut oil? Allforyou.sg has got you covered. Looking for some beef balls? The store has it! Looking for Ba Wang shampoo and conditioner duo? The store has it too! The best part? If you own a POSB Everyday Credit Card, you can get a cash rebate of 5% when you use your card at the checkout.
4. Cold Storage
Many of us love shopping at Cold Storage, the variety, freshness, and shopping experience generally beats most of the other supermarket chains in Singapore. It’s also great for wine, as the store offers a generous discount of up to 25% on its wine selection.
For some of us, Cold Storage stores aren’t located near to our house, so with the online store, it’s now possible to order groceries (and wine) online, and spend weekend sipping on wine and watching Netflix. It gets better if you are a UOB Delight cardholder as one can get 8% SMART$ rebate and an additional discount of 10% on house brands when they shop at Cold storage.
5. Kenny Grocery
How can we forget the oldest and the best? Kenny Grocery has been in business for more than 10 years and has flourished each year. They offer everything from fresh fruits/vegetables, frozen food, beverages, condiments to pet food. The best part? They deliver for free! All one needs to do is place their order online or through a phone call. Now, there is no credit card that offers special rebates for shopping at Kenny Grocery, but you can definitely utilise the rebates offered by the credit cards when you shop online.
