More Curbside Locations!

It’s been more than five months since Curbside set out to change the way people shop. From the typical after-school shopping trip to the last-minute holiday shopping spree to planning a Super Bowl party, Curbside has helped you get everything you need from our 11 Bay Area Target locations and the 20+ stores in Westfield’s Oakridge mall in San Jose.  All without the hassles of crowded parking lots, finding items on shelves or waiting in long checkout lines.

Your response to Curbside has been phenomenal! We’re seeing thousands of Curbside pickups each and every week and the numbers are growing.

And, with our four new Best Buy locations we’re excited to announce shopping for Bay Area residents got even easier.

Need a Macbook, a PS4 Bundle, or an HDMI cable in a hurry? Curbside will meet you out front with it in under an hour.

Get the app to order for pickup at Best Buy in San Francisco (Geary St.), in San Carlos, or at Santana Row or Blossom Hill in San Jose.

Can’t wait to see you curbside!

Curbside Handoff – Now With Postmates

We’ve all seen them: the spouse frantically texting from the aisles of the store trying to get instructions on exactly what kind of peanut butter to pick up.  At Curbside we’ve lived this experience, and so we added a feature called Handoff.

Handoff allows you to place exactly the order you want, and invite friends, family, roommates, whomever, to pick up for you.  One person builds the Curbside pickup, the other grabs it. As always, it’s already paid for with no waiting in checkout lines or hunting in the aisles. It’s been very popular.

A short time ago we were showing Handoff to our friends at Postmates and they gave us the lowdown on the very cool API they had in the works (announced today) that allows shopping apps to embed Postmates delivery.   We got really excited because we saw Postmates delivery as a natural extension of our Handoff feature.  Postmates loved the idea and invited us to be a launch partner for their API.

So today we’re announcing Handoff-to-Postmate. You can shop the Curbside app, tap Handoff on your cart, and choose the Postmates Delivery option.  You’ll get a live quote on a delivery. Accept, and as soon as your order is ready a Postmate will go grab your order and bring it to you.

This means you can use Curbside to get the exact products you need even on those days when you just can’t get out of the house. Awesome.
