Warehouse club shopping on your phone or tablet
Remember your love affair with Costco? You went for the jumbo barbecue sauce and came back with toilet paper as far as the eye could see. You?re pretty sure you still have some yellow Gatorade from a fateful journey back in 1997.
But as you grew wiser and, well, a little more Internet-dependent, the thought of schlepping two towns over to buy massive amounts of paper goods seemed a little less appealing.
Here to bridge the gap between the warehouse clubs of yore and the overnight delivery of today is Boxed, a new app for buying bulk items at wholesale prices online--now shipping nationwide.
Get started by downloading Boxed to your iPhone or Android and browsing categories like ?grocery? or ?kids.? Then shop for majorly discounted products like a 500-pack of ziplock bags ($9) or a 32-ounce bag of pistachios ($24).
Unlike Sam?s Club or Costco, Boxed doesn?t charge membership fees. Plus, if your order is $75 or more, you?re treated to free overnight delivery.
All the more reason to order that 24-pack of tissues the instant you feel that first telltale sniffle.
