Ratings and Reviews
App freezes all the time. I have to delete, reinstall, re-log-in just to order, complete an order, check in. Etc. Very frustrating. Several times, I couldn’t check in on way to pick up because app froze. So, I have to wait extra time at pick up. Searching for foods is not simple.
There’s no way to send messages, special requests, or communicate with the shopper. Sometimes the app doesn’t show something that I know the store has, so I’m unable to purchase that item. Ive also ordered food for that night’s family dinner only not to receive that one vital item from my order. Customer service explained that prime’s contract with Whole Foods limits the quantity of products that can they sell to customers. So, The store may have 6 widgets, but I can only get 1 widget. Which is not enough widgets to feed my family.
The only reason I use this service is because Whole Foods is about 30mins from home and they’re the only store that sells many of our daily foods and products. Otherwise, I would happily say goodbye to this service. If I place the order a day before, I may be able to get a favorable delivery window. Otherwise, not so much.
I want to love this service, but it’s sadly lacking. Hopefully, it will improve.
Terrible Customer Service
I have used AP to order breakfast items from Whole Foods over 10 times with excellent results at first. I ordered before 7 am to qualify for the 8 - 9 am 1 hr window. The first time, the order was on my porch at 8 am! The subsequent orders arrived later and later in the window with all the items in good condition with no unacceptable substitutions. I placed my last order with Whole Foods at 6:30 am and scheduled the 8 am - 9 am window. I received a message shortly after 7 am, I believe, that my order had been assembled and was waiting to be delivered. By 9:10 am I had heard nothing from the store or the driver. I called the driver who spoke with a heavy accent. He was difficult to understand but I managed to get that it “was the store’s fault”. The order was on my porch by 9:22 (time listed on receipt) I think it was more like 9:30 or 9:35 am. The two packages of frozen entrees were soft and not cold to the touch even though they were packaged in an insulated bag. I tried repeatedly to use
“customer service” to have them call me as per their instructions but there was no response. As a final resort, I’m writing this review.
The app generally works ok but can get stuck in a loop and crashing when leaving feedback. The execution/outcome is poor, however. The first couple orders were perfect, but my last 3-4 have either been missing items or completely unsuitable replacements have been used. For example, sending K-cups instead of instant coffee or sorbet instead of frozen fruit. The delivery people people also had some weird penchant for leaving the delivery immediately in front of my door, making it impossible to open my door without damaging the bag or goods. It’s not ready for prime time.
The customer service team is quick to address refunds, but they miss the mark in being a time saving service. It’s not convenient to micromanage a delivery person or then end up with items that aren’t close to expectations. I get the impression that whoever is assembling the orders is doing a mad dash through the store without asking for help finding items. Ex- K-cups for instant coffee... went to the Whole Foods myself and there it was.
Deleting this app because the final product is a disappointment.
