Sam's Club and Instacart now offer same-day alcohol delivery

Still need to grab beer for the party tonight? If you're a Sam's Club member, all you need is an internet connection.

The bulk sales club expanded its partnership with Instacart to include alcohol, including same-day delivery.

Sam's Club is now offering the service in 215 locations, including in Tampa. It did not specify the participating locations, but said delivery will take place often in as little as an hour.

"Sam's Club is focused on offering quality products, unexpected finds and better customer experiences," said Racquel Harris, vice president of Sam's Club's adult beverage division. "Now you can select the perfect bottle of wine to complement your dinner or stock up on your favorite beer or spirits for the big game with the convenience of delivery."

Among the alcohol options available are Member's Mark Sangria, Member's Mark Prosecco, Member's Mark Moscato D'Asti, Kendall Jackson Chardonnay, Modelo Especial and Tito's Handmade Vodka.

Sam's Club isn't the first chain to offer to-your-door alcohol. Instacart has delivered alcohol for Publix locations since late 2017, while online alcohol delivery service Drizly offers alcohol delivery within an hour to both sides of the bay.

Sam's Club expects to bring alcohol delivery to more stores over the coming months. To order alcohol, customers must put in their birth date when prompted by the app and show the delivery person their valid government ID.
