BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Sept. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Shipt, the shopping and delivery marketplace, today announced an exclusive new benefit with Visa, the world leader in digital payments, to provide free Shipt membership to the millions of Visa consumer credit cardholders¹ in the U.S. that enroll in the benefit. Representing half of U.S. market share², Visa leads their industry. Now, all U.S. Visa consumer credit cardholders can enroll to get free delivery of groceries and other home essentials on all Shipt marketplace orders over $35, from both national brands like Bed Bath & Beyond, CVS, and Target and a variety of beloved neighborhood grocers.
"When we began discussing this opportunity, it became immediately apparent that Shipt and Visa value investment in innovative solutions and above-and-beyond customer service," said Kelly Caruso, CEO at Shipt. "Together, we're proud to offer Visa consumer credit cardholders the benefit of time savings and convenience by leveraging a network of trusted Shipt Shoppers who are committed to getting you exactly what you want, when you want it."
"On-demand-delivery has become an essential and valuable part of the shopping experience for many Americans," said Brian Cole, Head of Product, North America, Visa. "We are thrilled to bring millions of Visa consumer credit cardholders access to Shipt's services to experience the ease and convenience of getting their groceries, goods and essentials delivered in as soon as one hour."
On-demand delivery became essential for many American households over the course of the pandemic. While nearly 30 percent³ of American consumers have made online grocery shopping part of their routine, the Shipt benefit for Visa' consumer credit cardholders can help fast-forward adoption of same-day delivery by allowing millions to try Shipt for free. While there have been partnerships between delivery companies and card issuers in the past, this Shipt benefit for Visa consumer credit cardholders is made available to all Visa consumer credit card issuers.
