This post is sponsored by Fred Meyer. All thoughts and opinions on the ClickList service are my own and honest and true (It’s pretty awesome!)
ClickList is a new service offered by Fred Meyer (and other Kroger Family Stores). ClickList allows you to order your groceries online and pick them up curbside at a participating store. I tried out the ClickList service this week and it was fabulous! I wish they had something like this when my kids were younger. I remember having to drag 4 little ones to the grocery store and it was a ton of work. If you have little ones, you will REALLY love this service, because you never have to leave your car.
This service is currently offered at select Fred Meyer stores (with plans for more). For those of you in Washington (like me) the ClickList service is available at Federal Way, South Hill Puyallup, Longview and two Vancouver locations. There are some participating stores in Oregon too. Just head to the Fred Meyer ClickList website to see if there is a location near you.
Here is how it works!
Head over to the Fred Meyer ClickList website and sign in or sign up for an account.
You then shop for items from your computer by adding them to your cart. I love that the website shows me the items that are on sale and even the items I have recently purchased. Based on your shopping trends it also assumes what items you may need to buy next. You also have the option to shop via categories and there is also a search bar. Finding the items I needed was very convenient and easy.
You are not paying more for the items that you would if you bought them in-store at Fred Meyer. You will get all the sale prices! It gets even better because you can also use coupons (that part is done when you pick up your order). Digital coupons loaded to your Fred Meyer Rewards card will automatically be applied to your order at pick-up and discounted from the total.
Once you are done with your order you choose your pick-up time, which will be sometime the following day. There is an hour pick-up time window.
When it comes time to pick up your order you drive to your Fred Meyer store and look for the blue signs directing you to the ClickList pick up location. The signs at my Federal Way store were clearly marked and easy to find. Once there, you pull into a ClickList parking spot and follow directions on the sign. It’s super easy! You just use your cell phone to call the number and they will bring our your order.
My ClickList helper was Angel and he was super friendly. The first thing he asked me is if I had any coupon or discounts I needed to apply to my order. I love that you can still use coupons with this service! He came out to my car within 5 minutes and explained that there were a couple of substitutions. The substitutions are totally optional and I did not have to accept them if I didn’t want or need them. My substitutions were a different brand of sausage and a bigger box of Cheez-its.
The whole experience was a breeze! I would happily use the service again and again. There is a $4.95 service fee, but this fee is waived on your first 3 orders, which gives you a no-cost opportunity to give the service a try!
Tips and Features of the ClickList service: These tips were shared with me by the Fred Meyer ClickList employee
Once you submit your order you have until 11:59 pm that day to add items to your order that you may have forgotten. I love this feature!
When selecting produce, there is a “Add Special Instructions” box where you can leave notes. If you want your bananas green, let them know. If you want ripe avocados because you are making Guacamole, let them know. The produce is hand selected and they will choose it to you specifications. This feature is good for meats too!
You can choose to have substitutions or not. If you have a specific substitution you would like, you can also write that in the”Add Special Instructions” box.

I love that blackberries are so readily available here in the Northwest. When August rolls around I try to make as many things as I can with blackberries. I make homemade Blackberry Syrup, Blackberry Jam, Blackberry Cheese Danish, Blackberry Cobbler and now I have a Blackberry drink to add to my list of blackberry recipes.
Here are the simple ingredients you need for this Iced Blackberry-Mint Green Tea:
- 6 cups of hot water
- 6 Lipton Green Tea tea bags
- 1 cup blackberries
- 1/3 cup mint leaves
- 1 1/2 TBSP honey (optional)
Add fresh blackberries and mint to bottom of pitcher. Using a muddler crush blackberries and mint.
Add 6 tea bags to pitcher, pour in 6 cups of boiling water
Add honey if you prefer you tea sweetened. Stir and let steep for 10 minutes.
Chill in fridge and serve with over ice. You can strain out the crushed blackberries and mint if you wish because the flavors are infused into the tea. Enjoy!
