Ratings and Reviews
Great service! Very very fast!!!!
I just discovered Instacart and I love it! I’ve recently had back surgery and I have a hard time getting around. Going to the grocery store is very difficult for me. All the grocery stores now offer ordering your groceries and picking them up. That’s great but I have a hard time just sitting in my car and driving due to complications from my surgery. This is a great alternative. Before driving to the other end of town (22 miles one way) to go to Sam’s Club or Sprouts was a major chore for me just getting there. Then to walk through the store and shop I could do it but then would be down for several days with excruciating back pain. Instacart has been a lifesaver for me! Even though I’ve only used it a couple times in the last three days. I love the fact that I can use it for any store that I shop that. Downloading the app I get two weeks free with no service fee. After that it’s an annual fee which is wonderful. The first gal that delivered to me was the one that told me that they had an annual fee. I was unaware of that so I started looking into it. You do see a slight increase in what you pay for the products that you’re getting but that’s OK. How else are they going to make money? The convenience of not having to going to the store is wonderful!! I definitely give them a five star review. I would give them a 10 star if I could. Thanks Instacart for making my life better. Heidi

Shopper to Customer
Hey there, so I am an Instacart shopper and I just wanted to put it out there for customers as it was brought to my attention yesterday. I had an angry customer who said he had been waiting all day for his order and said he had never had much issue up until yesterday which made me feel awful but it was definitely NOT my fault. We currently have two different work models going on which are not available to all and so some people are working by the hour and some by the job. The shoppers that are working by the hour obviously are getting heavier workloads therefore more pay, whatever is left over from these shifts goes into on demand mode and is cycled through shoppers until somebody takes the order. I unfortunately don’t have an option to shop on a schedule or if I did then I would because I know that I can get more customers orders fulfilled thus bringing more money home to pay my bills and help with the costs of raising children and happier customers and my number #1 goal is CUSTOMER HAPPINESS! So with all that being said, it’s a rare thing for orders to just sit there ,my thoughts are either it’s some kind of glitch or there could be the chance that shoppers are aware of a customer that likes to complain about timeliness but lowballs offers and tips and the order just keeps cycling with no result. Also could be an issue of low supply and high demand.
Most used app since becoming parents! We’ve renewed our subscription 2x now!
board usability. Wish Trader Joe’s would get on & then my life might be complete! app & the board & then my life might be complete! & then my life might be complete! fee we pay for free delivery year-round from Instacart is well worth it, and then some! The response-time & functionality of this app make grocery shopping at our regular stores simple, fast & amazingly convenient. We appreciate being able to communicate with our designated shopper in real time via the messaging feature and being able to provide immediate feedback on replacement items or refunds. My husband and I share our account but each have the app on our phones which means we can both add things to our store cart(s) individually throughout the day or whenever we realize we are out of something and then in live time we both are able to see what the other has added or when one of us has placed an order, when it’s likely to arrive, what needs to be replaced if applicable, etc. Since we started using this app over 2 years ago it’s only improved and we HIGHLY recommend to all of our friends & family with busy lives; with or without kids.
