Costco works well too - you have to pay a tiny upcharge ($0.60 maybe) but there's no shipping.

I usually use Staples, it's $10 delivery fee and $5 a case for bottled water delivered to the resort.

I've found this cheapest unless I am ordering other groceries from gardengrocer, in which case I just add it to that order - their delivery fee is much higher, but Staples doesn't sell 'real' food.

Thanks so much for the info. We weren't really upset, just disappointed. I mean really, even with the $10 charge, we saved a ton on water!
Good to know about those resorts. Thanks for taking the time to post and clear things up! I love this site!

That's weird. DH and I just had water shipped to us at CR and we weren't charged an extra $10 fee. Our water was waiting at bell services for us.

No complaints using gardengrocer. Will definitly use them again unless I see a better suggestion before we go again. I thought the delivery charge was $12 last summer. No much higher. And like previously posted, great if you are getting any other food. Enjoy your trip.

we have used staples without issue many times. I actually add in INK for my computer (its VERY safe and shipped in pkg and small ) and then by doing that never had to pay a shipping charge a tip I learned here on Dis. I mean I buy my ink there anyway, so it works for me.
Last year we had snacks delivered from garden grocer and alcohol as well and they messed up but did correct it (though I was inconvenienced a bit
Not sure if I'd use them again actually....

Ok I see Office Snax H20 to Go water at Costco so this is what everyone usually orders? This will sound stupid but how does it taste? Normal water taste, no aftertase or funk to it?

I am just leary b/c a few years ago we ordered some water (I can't remember the brand but i want to say it was Nesle before the new bottles came out) and it was NASTY. Weirdest tasting bottled water I've ever had.

Costco used to deliver Zepherhills (a Nestle/Poland Spring brand, I believe) for only $7.00 per case (shipping included).

They no longer do this. The new water they carry is more expensive.

Thanks, I thought that it seemed more than what I had seen on here. I'll start looking at Staples and other places today. Thanks for the heads up.

I just ordered from Costco. Water $6.99, Non-member surcharge $ .35, Tax $ .48. Total delivered to POP $7.82. Much better than $2.50 a bottle!

I checked Staples and they wanted to charge a $7 shipping fee!
