If the idea of spelunking through your car’s cup holders for a quarter or bagging your own groceries (gasp!) is too much for you, you may still be able to score some affordable groceries from Aldi.

After testing delivery via Instacart in Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and Chicago, the company announced on Sept. 18 that it would roll out the service to all its stores across 35 states by Thanksgiving.

Aldi shoppers ordering groceries via Instacart can request delivery in as little as an hour or as far out as a week after placing their orders. Instacart delivery fees vary, but a release from Aldi said that new Instacart customers can take $10 off their first three Aldi orders of $35 or more by using the code ALDILOVE. The promotion code is good through Feb. 28, 2019.

Grocery delivery services such as Instacart typically costs between $6 and $12 for orders above $35, depending on demand. You can’t use coupons when you order via Instacart, but that’s not a problem for Aldi shoppers — the store doesn’t offer coupons.

Aldi started its delivery pilot program with Instacart in August 2017. The grocery chain, which is in the midst of an ambitious expansion plan, announced last month it would offer more fresh produce options in its stores.
