Coles customers can now place unlimited home delivery orders through the company’s new subscription-based service, Delivery Plus. The service aims to save hundreds of dollars for customers on their delivery costs.

Coles is offering a flat-rate monthly fee to online customers, with the first month free of charge when they first sign up for the Delivery Plus service.

Two plans will be available – the Any Day Saver ($19 per month), which offers unlimited deliveries all week, and the Mid-Week Saver ($14 per month), providing deliveries on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Customers must spend more than $100 in a single transaction.

Coles online general manager Karen Donaldson said online shopping was becoming more popular for time-poor customers.

“On average, the cost of a Coles Home Delivery window is $10, depending on location, time of day and length of delivery window chosen,” Donaldson said.

“Delivery Plus will allow customers who regularly shop online to save hundreds of dollars a year and help them manage their family budget by knowing exactly how much they will pay on Coles Online delivery each month.”

As part of the launch, Delivery Plus will also cover fees for unlimited same day deliveries for a limited time.
