Fred Meyer Clicklist
I am so totally and completely exhausted. I flew back in from Europe last night and that was after trying to get home for two days. I was gone for right over two weeks and all the food in my house has gone bad, of course. And on top of that, I have 3 hungry kids looking at me wondering when I am going to the grocery store. Now, have I mentioned how exhausted I am. I do not want to go grocery shopping. And thanks to Fred Meyer Clicklist grocery pickup I don’t have to!
What is Clicklist aka Fred Meyer Grocery Pickup?
Clicklist is a service offered at Fred Meyer and other Kroger stores, including Publix, Fry’s, Dillon’s, and Smiths, where you can pick out your groceries online and then at the time you select, you can pull up to the store and they will load them into your car. You never have to step foot into the store!
You can shop for more than 40,000 items, including fresh produce, meat and seafood, dairy and frozen products, across the entire store with more products being added all the time.
All you have to do is set up an account with them, which is quick, easy, and free. Once you have an account, you pick out what groceries you want.
Grocery Shop From Home – Ordering Groceries is Easy
I already had an account so I just logged in and started picking out what I wanted. I have a reward card here so they know what I usually buy and they put those items at the top of the page. This is quite helpful. They also have a section that shows if the items you usually buy are on sale.
They have a variety of recipes on the shopping portal as well. This makes it easy to quickly shop for everything you need from the ingredient list. I enjoy being able to make something new once a week. In case you are looking for a new recipe I have lots just search under the recipe tab!
Quality and freshness are ClickList’s top priorities. Order selectors hand-select produce, meat and seafood items for each order with quality and freshness top of mind.
One hidden benefit of grocery shopping online is the ability to cut out impulse buying. Not to mention the time saved. I save so much time with Kroger grocery pickup.

Email and Text Reminder
The morning I was supposed to pick up my groceries I received an email reminder. I drove over to the store and pulled up to the designated area. There is an area you pull up to first let them know you are there and then they tell you which stall to pull into closer to the store.
A worker comes out and goes over your receipt with you. They will let you know if any items went unfilled or if any substitutions were made. Then, if everything looks good to you, you make your payment and some else comes and loads your groceries into the car. I never stepped foot outside my car! How sweet is that?
Will Fred Meyer pickup let me know what is available?
If there are substitutions, Fred Meyer will email you or text you. You will have the chance to either accept the substitutions or reject them.
Here is a video of my experience with Clicklist.
Since experiencing Clicklist service I tried the home delivery. It was nice having them delivered, but I had to tip, so instead I stick to Clicklist.
I know what you are thinking, travel perks? No, there’s no specific perk given to you by Fred Meyer. The perk is being able to order groceries from your cell phone and picking them up when you get back to town. Instead of coming home to a house with nothing to eat or drink, you can just pick them up on your way home! I order my groceries once from the airplane. One my way home, I swung by and picked them up!
If you are traveling somewhere that you need groceries you can place a Clicklist order with any nearby Kroger store. For example, we always get groceries in Orlando to help cut costs. You can order, then and pick them up on the way to your hotel or vacation home. How handy is that? I love stuff that simplifies my life!

Kroger Grocery Delivery
Yes, Fred Meyer home delivery is available too, for a fee and you have to tip the person that brings the groceries to your home. The first time you opt for this option you get free delivery, but there’s still a tip.
I got super worried the first time, because I was expecting someone from the store to deliver my groceries. Instead, it’s someone that that basically runs errands for a living. They do the shopping for you and then they deliver it. I had no cash to tip this person and felt horrible. But after my groceries were mark delivered I was given the opportunity to add a tip. Thank goodness!
