Favorite Texas grocery chain H-E-B has rolled out free curbside pickup at more than 250 stores across the state, including those in the Fort Worth area.
H-E-B says it will no longer charge a $4.95 fee for a curbside pickup order, as long as a minimum purchase of $35 is made. The order must be at least $35 before taxes, discounts, promotions, or coupons. Orders less than $35 will be charged a $2.95 fee.
H-E-B’s curbside service — which began in 2015 and grew in popularity after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic — gives “Texans an easier, more convenient way to shop for the products they want and need, and we are excited to now offer this service free to all our H-E-B customers,” Rachael Vegas, senior vice president of e-commerce merchandising, says in a May 17 news release.
Customers can place an H-E-B curbside order through the My H-E-B mobile app or at heb.com. Orders must be placed at least four hours before the scheduled pickup time. All curbside orders offer contactless service, letting customers remain in their vehicles while H-E-B employees load their orders.
A spokeswoman for H-E-B confirms that the free curbside service does not apply to its Central Market stores. However, a different promotion currently offers no pickup or delivery fee on customers' first four orders placed through the Central Market app.
"No code needed," she says, "just download the app and start shopping."
