How To Use In-Store Pickup to Finish Your Holiday Shopping Without Losing Your Mind

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

last-minute-shopping-tips

Have you run out of time and energy to finish up your holiday shopping? Or have you realized that you’ve missed the order deadline to ship your gifts without paying a fortune to get them in time? At Christmas and all year long, our TOP way to save time, hassle and money on last-minute shopping is to order online at our favorite stores that offer in-store pickup.

Shop from your computer or phone while you are at work, waiting for your kids at practice, lessons or doctor’s appointment, in line at the grocery store, at the airport waiting for your flight or to pick up guests, taking it easy at home while waiting for the pizza to be delivered. Select In-Store Pickup at checkout and let the store employees collect your items from around the store and process your order for you. It’s multi-tasking at its finest and sure to help you NOT lose your mind!

The advantages of ordering online and picking up in-store are:

  • Shop from anywhere, anytime
  • Know your items are in-stock before you leave home
  • Compare prices and selection online
  • Use online coupon codes and offers
  • No fees or shipping charges
  • Get text or email notification when order is ready to pick up
  • Usually ready in about an hour
  • Order is bagged and waiting at customer service when you arrive

Our favorite way to use this method is for Woof Woof Papa to drive, so I can just hop out and run in to the store and we don’t even have to spend time searching for parking!

This option is also great for when you are out-of-town, staying at a hotel or friends & family, and realize you need a gift at the last minute. Plus it saves the hassle of flying or traveling with gifts…just order now and pick them up at your destination!

Another advantage besides saving time, is that you can also save money. Use any current coupon code when you place your order for added savings. Many stores offer special discounts when you order online and pick up in person. The stores we most frequently use online shopping with in-store pick include:
