    It could be that it was posted in florins and the person that posted didn't realize that. Either way, this should work well for our needs.

    If I recall correctly, I believe if you spend more than $50 there is no delivery fee. That was easy for us to do, especially getting a bottle of alcohol at the store. Lol. I know we did not have to pay a fee.

    we used “Aruba groceries to go” during our visit a couple of weeks ago. Yes the delivery charge was $20. The service was excellent and our order was delivered at the agreed time with good communication. Appropriate substitutions of some items were made. Unfortunately, several items were out of stock and not delivered. These items were refunded to our credit card a few days later.

    i will definitely use this service again during our next visit to Aruba in July. For our 1 week visit, we are not buying so much food that spending time at a supermarket to pick our own items is that important, nor a good use of our vacation time.
