I am sure you’ve seen a banner or two on Kroger’s website for Boost but if you haven’t let me tell you a little about it. I just recently joined Kroger Boost because I love delivery (on a side note I broke my ankle and had surgery a few weeks ago and haven’t been able to get to the store so this was my main reason). Kroger Delivery came to my rescue BUT it was getting pretty expensive paying the $9.95 delivery free EACH time I placed an order. It added up too fast. When I saw an ad about Kroger Boost I instantly joined and I wanted to tell YOU about it!
I joined Kroger Boost on Saturday and placed my first order last night and have it delivered this morning. Join me in using Kroger Boost to maximize your savings with delivery or with shopping in store.
If you’re like me and already use Kroger Delivery then this really pays for itself so keep on reading to learn more! I have lots of extra details that will help you with your choice below!
Kroger Boost is easy, because you’ll shop as you normally would at Kroger Co Family of Stores location or online. You must use your loyalty account in store or your digital account online to receive the benefits.
Kroger offers (2) different levels to choose from at different price points. Please note that these options are NOT available in all markets/areas right now so you’ll be able to find out once you sign in.

Can you choose which Krogers to have your order delivered from? We have one Kroger 10 mins away that’s awful and never has fresh produce. We have another Kroger 15 mins away that’s huge, new, and always has good produce. I cancelled Instacart because I couldn’t pick the better store, so I’m wondering if I can choose with Boost.
How does this work with paper coupons?
No, what a surprise all those loyalty coupons they sent in the mail are now worthless, unless you go physically to the store. Wait, you just purchased a delivery service.
I received an email from Kroger that said if Boost delivers no tip. If Instacart delivers, tip. The trouble with that is you can rarely get a Boost timeslot for next day.
DO NOT NEED ANY BODY TO BRING GROCERIES TO OUR HOME!
Does Boost give you extra coupons that are only available for Boost members?
Who delivers for Kroger? Will it be Instacart, Doordash or independent contractors with Kroger?
if Boost delivers, no need to tip. If Instacart delivers, you need to tip. I’ve noticed that with Boost orders you cannot get a timeslot for next day so it’s kind of bull-oney in how they advertise it…

How does delivery work with all the rebate apps like iBotta and Fetch?
Kathryn, you do not receive a paper receipt with Kroger Delivery so you are unable to use these apps. 🙁
you can use the fetch ap and select the blue eReceipt button. If Kroger is a partner of Fetch it will work. I’ve also scanned the receipt straight from my computer and it works …
With Kroger BOOST do you tip?
Of course it is expected. So if you do a $100 shop each week, and you tip $15 each time, it sets you back $780. Most of us who ‘coupon’ are cheap by nature, so it doesn’t make sense unless you justify it because you do not have to leave the house and you consider the time you save by not shopping. But I also do not like trusting someone tp pick out my produce. They won’t ask someone to check in back for better produce or for items missing from shelves. I also go during morning when they mark down meats. And I look thru clearance. So I personally am just too much of a control freak to skip shopping myself.
No tipping allowed, per Kroger.
They are using paid associates. This is their job.
Plus you already paid for Boost, and this is one of the perks of a Boost membership.
