Very useful to lower cost of meat, fancy cheese or on big orders. The stores I'm going to don't sell vegetable. I assume it's because those expire quicker or aren't preserved easily. So it's fun to try more expensive pieces I would normally purchase but you can't do your whole groceries on it to eat healthy or balanced. I usually make an order and do my groceries of side dish or veggies at the same time. It's practical depending on the store. Some are better at accuracy and speed than others.

The food is good, there are many produces and many stores. However, when you pickup you purchase, you have to wait 10-20 minutes at the store, although you specify in advance the pickup time (the order is never ready, in all the stores I tried). Also, they added a "transaction fee" recently, so it's less expensive to buy the fresh produce in store than to buy the discounted one on the app. And finally, there are generally no fruits & veggies on the app, only processed food (not very healthy)

When I started off on this app, I thought it was great. IGA and Metro stores in Quebec tend to be a little more pricey than Maxi or Super-C. Even so, 50% off is a great deal. However, a new client is given $5 off first order (Love free stuff), but on your fourth and subsequent orders there is a $1.79 transaction fee (plus GST and QST = another $0.27). This will certainly limit my use of this service unless I want to make a bigger order. App easy to use and the weight of the item is displayed.
