Does Costco Ship Wine

By David Krug 3 minute read

Costco has a wide selection of products, including wine, spirits, and beer, accessible in-store and online at Costco.com.

You may be asking if Costco delivers alcohol if you don’t have time to go to your local Costco, or simply want an order delivered. The results are in!

In 2022, does Costco have a plan to deliver alcoholic beverages?

In 2022, InstaCart.com will begin delivering alcohol to Costco Warehouses. The availability of this service, however, may vary by state, county, and Costco location.. A $35 minimum order is required for same-day delivery of beer, wine, and spirits by Costco for members who qualify. Additional services and delivery fees apply.

Continue reading to find out more about how the Costco alcohol delivery system works, how to identify yourself, and whether or not you can get your order delivered the same day!

What is Costco Alcohol Delivery?

Using the Instacart app or website, you may place an order for alcohol from Costco for delivery.

You may check to see if the service is available in your area by entering your ZIP code here. If this is the case, you’ll have an easier time looking through the things on offer.

Add the beers, wines, and spirits to your shopping cart from Costco. Then, choose a delivery time that works best for you – if there is availability, you should be able to get your products delivered the same day.

The Instacart personal shopper will pick your things and deliver them to you in real time after you place your order.

Using the Instacart app, you can also order other grocery items from Costco for same-day delivery.

Costco accepts what forms of identification for delivery of alcohol?

You must be at least 21 years old to order alcohol from Costco using Instacart.

When your delivery arrives, the shopper will scan your ID to verify your age. A list of acceptable forms of identification for Instacart may be found here:

  • Driver’s licenses issued in the United States.
  • Military identification cards issued by the United States government.
  • Identification cards issued by the state.
  • Under certain conditions, some out-of-date driver’s licenses and state IDs may be accepted for use.

The items will be returned to the business and you will be given a refund if your shopper is unable to successfully deliver them to you for whatever reason.

The delivery price and any bottle deposit fees may still apply, though.

Is same-day alcohol delivery available at all Costco locations?

Instacart doesn’t deliver alcohol to all Costco locations on the same day. However, more than 200 Costco facilities are equipped with this feature. Instacart’s app or website will help you find out if your local Costco store is eligible.

It’s possible to get one- or two-day delivery on many Costco products even if the service is unavailable in your area.

Enter your ZIP code when prompted to do so on the Costco landing page or when checking out to find out. However, Costco’s website does not allow you to order alcohol. Instacart is the only way to do this.

Bottom Line

One-day delivery of all groceries, including Costco’s extensive selection of alcohol, has been possible since Costco partnered with Instacart in 2019. Using the Instacart app or website, simply type in the name of your local Costco. To use the service, you’ll need to find a Costco near you that provides it.
