Just gives you access to delivery in any available timeslot (maybe it's full for non delivery pass customers?) But there's no special access to timeslots that are not available.quazy wrote: ↑ Does this give you unlimited free deliveries or it just let's you pick delivery times that are already fully booked or both? Surprised the promotion and sales pages don't have more information given that it is restricted to new customers who have never used voila.
Edit: found a bit more info here
So does that mean voila delivery is not usually a flat rate unless you buy the pass? How much savings is it on average? I see there is a mid week delivery pass for free mid week deliveries so how much do those cost? Thanks!

Sobeys/Farm Boy is expensive to begin with, but the couple times I used Voila I only bought things that weren't more expensive and ended up saving money. I'd use them again to stock reasonably priced pantry items. That said, I agree that it won't and can't replace our weekly grocery store trip because the Sobeys price point in general is higher than I'm willing to pay.pob444 wrote: ↑ I have a different experience, but it might be because I'm in Quebec and not GTA.
I like the service in theory, but I'm not pleased so far.
Products are more expensive. I expected that, but you should bear in mind it's not close to what you'd have in a regular store circular.
What bothers me the most is they show me products that I put in cart and they then tell me they are not available at checkout. For me that's infuriating, especially when I wanted to make a small order (35$ min).
My expectation was to replace my weekly trip to the grocery store and the service doesn't really let me do that if I'm not ready to pay double on some items and miss their own special offers.
Edit: to be fair, the products I received were fresh and delivered on time though. I think I would really like the service if it was improved a bit.

Doesn't change anything, but with your next delivery you just leave the bags on the porch and the driver will take them for "recycling".

We just used them as garbage bags. They're actually bigger than normal grocery bags, so worked well in the trash.

I have a drawer full of bags.. i always forget to put them out lol and then one unlucky driver gets a bag of like 100 bags when I do remember.

I'd agree that Voila is way better than Loblaw brand(s)/Walmart pickup.hvc wrote: ↑ Just gives you access to delivery in any available timeslot (maybe it's full for non delivery pass customers?) But there's no special access to timeslots that are not available.
Delivery fee is fixed, but depends when you're getting delivery. I believe mornings/evenings are more than midday, for example, and fri-sun is more than mon-thurs. I believe this is/was how Loblaws prices click and collect as well.
edit: Voila is more expensive, for sure, but we've had a really good experience over the past ~2 years with it. Produce is top notch and the meats are good.. any issues we've had we send a quick email with pictures and they usually refund it immediately if it's not up to spec. In comparison, we've had less than ideal experiences with Loblaws pickup/delivery as it's all picked from a store by someone who doesn't really care about what you get and/or is what in-person shoppers have picked over. Voila is automated from a central location, apparently.
So, I'd order it like so: Voila > visiting the store > Loblaws delivery/pickup, with the first to swapping places depending on budget. That's my experience, at least, for people to consider.

In my experience, Walmart does not charge more when they substitute even if the substitution is more expensive. I've been very happy with their service. They even send me a $10 voucher as an apology if a certain number of items in my order was out of stock.
