Shoppers in quick need of Walgreens own brand products and more can now get them via the Uber Eats platform across the United States.
This is the second partnership between Walgreens and the ride-share company, as they earlier developed a vaccine scheduling option via the Uber app to enable Uber riders a way to schedule a vaccine appointment and get a ride there.
This latest on-demand delivery option offers shoppers delivery of items from more than 7,800 locations. Items include health and wellness, beauty and personal care, household essentials, OTC medications and more, according to the retailer, with an eye on eventually having more than 20,000 products available.
Uber app users simply open the Uber Eats app, tap the convenience or pharmacy icons, select Walgreens and begin shopping. To celebrate the new launch, Walgreens and Uber Eats are offering customers $20-off orders of $30 or more through June 27.
“Walgreens provides our customers with seamless health and well-being experiences, and offering them convenient delivery solutions on whichever platform they prefer to shop is key,” said Stefanie Kruse, vice president, digital commerce and omnichannel at Walgreens. “Our collaboration with Uber for on-demand delivery through both Walgreens and Uber’s channels, as well as integrated vaccine scheduling, gives customers simple and easy ways to put their health and well-being needs at the forefront — which will continue to be important to them as we emerge from the pandemic.”
The Uber delivery option joins curbside pickup and same-day delivery via Walgreens.com and the Walgreens app. The partnership also joins other delivery options through DoorDash, Instacart and Postmates.
"By leveraging the best of what Walgreens and Uber have to offer we're making it easier than ever for customers to prioritize their health and wellness," said Raj Beri, Uber’s head of grocery delivery. "From on-demand delivery of essentials to hassle-free vaccine scheduling all at the touch of a button, we're focused on eliminating barriers that burden customers’ everyday life, helping them go anywhere and get anything instantly.”
