Instacart: Food delivery today Positive 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.

Instacart the place you want to order from a life-changing eventWhen I got home tonight I thought to myself gosh I’m tired. Do I really want to take that ride to the grocery store? Probably not. So then I began to sync. Well I’m really hungry, but there’s not really anything to eat here. I’ve been picking up groceries for years. Heavy groceries my hip my back hurts. What can I tell you for some reason it just dawned on me that most people tend to like to use the Internet and I’ve been learning things about things about apps no I’m not that old I’m not that young, but I am smart enough to finally realize my back hurts time to get on the Internet, sure enough I find this thing called Instacart that this woman used to order from that I worked for and it sure did look great with those things were delivered to her door. At first I thought I’m not rich enough to be able to order things off for Instacart, and I can’t afford it well think again with all the time I put into the libras walking in plastic bags of people in the store and a lot of unhappy faces. I begin to think it’s worth every bit of money that I have to spend . So here I was an Instacart ordering they made it easy. They made it incredible so I am now waiting for my first order the end. I guess you can call me a happy camper..Version: 7.185.0
App ok but misleading and some issuesI have been using instacart for awhile and overall like it. 2 big things keep me from giving it a better rating.
1. The app allows you to define acceptable substitutes or say you would like a refund. I always fill this out because it is frustrating if you miss a chat asking if they can substitute and you end up with a poor substitute that you won’t use. I have been told directly from instacart shoppers who keep badgering me to offer subtitutions on items I marked to refund that they never see these preferences. The feature would be really useful if it worked because otherwise you get tons of chats with pictures of empty shelves which aren’t helpful at all or constant “how about this? “ sub requests. The failure for shoppers to honor these requests is my #1 pet peeve with the app and service.
2. Lately about 20% of our orders are clearly being shopped with way too many others concurrently. You can tell this in a few ways: a) a shopping for 10 items takes 2 hours which also means you have TWO HOURS of chats and sub requests to monitor, b) the cold items arrive at almost room temperature (for example my ice cream arrived today and was LIQUID-we got it off the porch 2 min after they left it) c) higher error occurrences - wrong items delivered vs receipt and d) you get an alert that they are 7 min away and then 40 min later get one that the deliver time is pushed back almost 45 min well past the original estimate..Version: 7.142.1
Love the app but here are my recommendations to make it betterInstacart should allow shoppers to only remove a percentage of the tips & not the entire tip especially if we got 80% of their items and attempted replacement items via chat. it would also be helpful if they could leave a note as to why they lowered the tip so it can be a learning opportunity for the shopper. It’s unfair that we meet the shoppers sometimes ridiculous demands, shopping for items that are not on the list because the app doesn’t allow them to add it to the cart; we go over our allotted time looking for items and they have the audacity to remove the entire tip. It’s unfair! Im in a couple instacart groups it’s sad how many people get tip baited.
While one the topic of instacart groups, instacart should have their team members join these groups what better way to make improvements within the company then hearing unfiltered truths from shoppers and customers.
Lastly it would be amazing if we had a call center to call instead of a chat, to get help. Texting back and forth is too time consuming I would love to speak to a representative to get my problem resolved asap so I can go about my day, it can be a little frustrating when there’s a communication gap between you and the chat agent.
All in all Great app I love being an instant cart shopper it’s allowed me to supplement my income while trying to start my own business 😊.Version: 7.98.1
Hit and missThey just changed the app and now they’ve placed the cart at the bottom. Why? It was better up on the right at the top of the screen and easier to see ? Another dumb decision, when you finish shopping and paying for your order, the cart does not show 0 anymore. The items remain in your cart, even after you receive confirmation that it’s paid! So if you need to go to another store and start shopping to schedule another delivery, you can’t do it.
Nice going, Instacart. Then there’s all the random missing items, shoppers who don’t read your instructions and bring you the wrong things, lost tomatoes that they say you got (and charge you for)… but you never got. Time wasted sitting on the phone calling Instacart customer service to explain all these things or take pictures of your smashed items or plead your case on those tomatoes you never got, etc. Add in the smashed bread and broken eggs and you get the idea. But the upside of all this is that occasionally you get a nice shopper who is good and reads your instructions and texts you as needed and delivers your stuff quickly. Hopefully not showing up with all your cold items warm because they delivered four different orders and you were the last one they delivered. So, I guess if you can handle all the bad, the benefit is,…”you” didn’t have to go to the store. We got someone else to do it for us. But it’s always hit and miss if it’s going to be a good or bad experience..Version: 7.76.0
Not great customer serviceI’ve had Instacart for over a year and everything is great in terms of deliveries and the various stores you can choose from. No issue there. However, my account was recently locked and then deactivated while I had absolutely no idea as to why either happened. To get in contact with support you need to log in; however my account was locked so there was no way for me to reach them. I was able to find their number online and ask how to reactivate my account-they told me to fill out a form with a government ID and my payment information after which their trust safety department would be able to verify my account and unlock it. The problem is that the trust safety department has no number and they only communicate through email. The rep I spoke to didn’t want to give me the email address either and said I’d have to wait till they got back to me on the matter. Additionally when I asked why my account was locked they said they had no idea why it’s been locked and only the trust safety department can tell me. I was very frustrated by this because the trust safety department hasn’t reached out to me about my account being locked nor about it being deactivated. On top of that I had no way to reach them either to ask about this???
Overall the customer support regarding locked accounts was horrible and in the end resulted in me just completely leaving the service..Version: 7.173.0
KathySeveral of my items in my pick up order were missing. I called foodlion and I was told that those items had in face been given to the wrong person. Not only did they not have to return the items they weren’t charged, which that’s perfectly fine with me. My issue is that I then had to go to the store and pick up those items and still charged for them. I was the only one that was inconvenienced. I expressed that I understand that mistakes happen as this was not the first time but to repeatedly have these issues and I’m the only one that is losing out is not okay. I ended up speaking to Kathy’s and her customer service and telephone etiquette is not up to customer service standards and I believe she really doesn’t like her job. While conversing with Ms. Kathy I was given attitude. I was told that the other customer had nothing to do with this and why was I even bringing that customer into the situation. She asked what was she suppose to do about it ? I expressed to her that I was in no mad enough with her to give me attitude but I was the only person that was being inconvenienced and what was foodlion going to do to rectify the situation. Long story short, I did end up with a refund but it was not without incident and not given as a refund that wanted to keep a customer. My suggestion to Kathy is….if you aren’t excited to deal with the general public during the good and bad times, find another job..Version: 7.130.0
Compare store receipt to Instacart chargeI loved Instacart so much when I first tried it that I signed up for the annual delivery subscription to eliminate all delivery fees. Great $99 investment. I just pay a little extra to tip the driver through the app and I never have to visit the grocery store again… YEA!, However I did notice after a few months that the Store receipt was regularly 25$ - 30$ more than the Instacart total after correcting for adjustments and substitutions in the order. I called and spoke to customer service twice and confirmed that Instacart does not honor store prices and in fact sets their own to maximize profit. The original store receipt will always be included with your grocery delivery so make sure to check the total amount paid to the store and compare it with your final Instacart charge after substitutions and adjustments are made. For me the difference is about $200 per month, but we eat a lot of expensive organic produce. So just know that you’re paying $99 for the annual membership, but also for the inflated grocery prices. In my case since I pay my house cleaner $20 per hour it’s cheaper to have them do my shopping and the additional benefit to that is they can also enter my loyalty number at checkout so I can get my discounted fuel points directly from the store since in Alaska the Instacart drivers get the store points for the purchase.
I’ll still use it a pinch, but know it costs more than the annual fee and driver tips..Version: 7.18.0
Always an issueOkay so I started Instacart before the Pandemic started and was over joyed with the amount of money I was making in a short amount of time. I liked it more than DoorDash. That was within the first few weeks of being a shopper.
After I would have a whole bunch of issues and glitches making my orders take longer and more difficult to do. The year 2020 I had an order that was roughly $500 the app glitched and erased my profile just as I was on the way to deliver the items and it took the Customer service hours to even do anything that could help. There was an order before that where the app glitched and I was sitting at the customers house for hours waiting for a resolve.
Fast forward 2021 I use the app under my moms information and didn’t have a single problem with the app except for bad connection here or there. I try to reapply (because the app glitched and deleted my account) under my own information again and was already having issues like it wouldn’t let me update my phone information. I tried to get a rep and they seemed helpful but then I couldn’t get to the chat to answer any questions. I finally get to the chat and had to start a whole new chat with different people who weren’t even able to help.
It’s all been a headache and very disappointing. It seems they’re doing all these updates but not fixing anything that actually matters..Version: 7.102.1
Great service, one time issue onlyI love ordering from my phone. The cost of delivery and tip is worth me not having to leave house and put miles on my vehicle or deal with aggravation of crowded stores. The closest Publix is about 15 min away so I’m already committing to at least a 30 minute drive. I only had an issue one time - I ordered things for dinner (it was about 5ish). I should have ordered earlier but I didn’t know better. It was about 2 hours in and no one started working on my order. I called IC to see what their policy was and what the recourse was if my groceries didn’t come. The lady said “then it will just come tomorrow”. Which of course was unacceptable since it was dinner and I work for a living and wouldn’t be home. I ended up going myself and, as I was in Publix, someone started working on my order. My fault, I had forgotten to cancel it. I told them right away obviously through the messenger system. But, I’ll just always remember that ordering sooner is better. I wish there would have been a way for someone to say “no one is available for 2 hours, fend for yourself!” Keep in mind I live in a small city, mostly rural. I’m surprised we even have this service here. I love ordering groceries on lazy days!!! I also save some money from not going in the store and getting things I don’t need. Thanks IC!.Version: 7.9.0
Unhappy CustomerI’ve used this app over 10 times and the last time i refused to use it again. The service has always been great, loved all the shoppers. The last time they showed me the prices of the individual items and i was okay with it, they also showed me the delivery charge, the tax, the tip, and the service charge. Everything added up and i was fine with it. Everything i put in my cart was picked up by the shopper, there were no replacements or refunds or item changes. When the order was done the item prices magically went up so my purchase was $10+ over what i was expecting. Its never done that before and i didnt order anything special. I tried to email them and asked them why the prices mysteriously went up and they said it was service charge and i tried to tell them the service charge was already added in when i agreed on the prices. Email after email was the same reply, it was a service charge. They already add some service charges into the price if the item, thats why they’re higher online than in store then they add another service charge at the end. Which again i was fine with paying but then they charged me extra when they shouldn’t have and all i was getting was robot responses saying it was a service charge. I understand there might be some higher prices in the store but that doesn’t make every item price go up $1-$2 after you agreed to pay the price they told you..Version: 6.32.0
Almost perfectThis is such a great concept. I love that it gives you all the nearby supermarkets that work with Instacart so it’s easy to compare prices. I will not give it 5 starts due to 2 things. 1. Once you’ve placed your order, you have a few minutes to add any items you forgot, as long as you do it before the person begins shopping, the problem is, there is some kind of glitch with the app because 8/10 times it will not let me add anything; I’ve only successfully been able to do it maybe once, but most times, it just wont give me the option, even if the person hasn’t started shopping. 2. There is an extra $20 that is added to your overall total in case there needs to be a replacement for a more expensive item or in case you add something else in general, if none of your items were substituted or if you didnt add any items, your bank account will reflect the actual total that was given to you at checkout. My only pet peeve about this is, they tell you about the extra $20 in super tiny letters at the very bottom of the page, it just looks like general policy writing so imagine the surprise when you sign into your bank account and see an extra $20 dollars than the one you saw at checkout. I didnt catch this at all at first so be aware, whatever your balance is, add $20; but dont let this scare you, you will most likely not need those $20 so it will be back in your bank within a few days.Version: 6.20.0
Needs more environment awarenessI like the shopping convenience - no objection there. There’s the occasional wrong item being bought (just due to overloooking) which is understandable.
What I am most upset about and have almost stopped using the app due to this is the massive plastic wrapping that most shoppers do. They do it out of good intentions I understand - sadly a lot of people like their produce wrapped in plastic. But there are a lot of us who try to reduce their blood plastic footprint. And big shopping “revolutions” like Instacart should absolutely always encourage using less plastic during shopping. I would really really like to see a default checkbox for “no plastic wrapping” or at the very least “reduced plastic wrapping”.
I already only order from stores that only have paper bags, however they still have plastic in their produce section and sometimes shoppers use it excessively. My biggest jaw-drop moment was when I received a single mango wrapped in plastic (why, just why), and cabbage (which came by default wrapped in Saran wrap) which was wrapped AND tied in 2 plastic bags.
Based on this I have limited myself to only order things that come in a container like milk, flour, eggs, etc. I’ve stopped ordering produce of any kind because I’m tired of dealing with tons of plastic bags that are honestly completely unnecessary for most cases. Even if they aren’t I have so many at home that I can always use my own for longer produce storage..Version: 7.50.0
Terrible customer service. First experience FAIL!I had a TERRIBLE time dealing with instacart. My very first order said within 5 hours and my person picked it up within two, I was very pleased! But then he started swapping after I said not to or even when I requested specific things he didn’t even listen! Once check out was complete at around 2ish I DIDNT HEAR FROM MY PERSON FOR AN HOUR! I had icecream and milk. Once I messaged him about 50 minutes later, no response. Just finally got the notification for that he was on the way. So my driver had my milk and icecream out for over an hour! Of course it was completely melted. My milk was warm and I had some wrong items! The driver didn’t listen to put at the bottom step so all my eggs cracked! I’ve tried reaching out to customer service for over 3 weeks now. I sent them screenshots of mine and the persons conversation. Explained everything I could. NO RESPONSE! It’s now almost been a month and I have no response. No refund. Nothing. I email them about once every 5-7 days but still nothing besides an automated email saying they’re busy! I tried instacart because I was sick and have no transportation. I am so scared to even try it again. After this I don’t want to waste my money in melted, wrong, and cracked items!.Version: 7.25.1
Needs Ability to REMOVE Loyalty CardsI'm editing my previous review. I finally got my account working by calling into phone support again. I still can't REMOVE my old Sam's Club membership loyalty card that's canceled. Please add an option to REMOVE loyalty cards in the app.
I’m having multiple issues with my Instacart account. 1. I’ve tried multiple attempts to reset my password, all have failed. 2. I can’t perform the account verification with a credit card since I didn’t have a method of payment on file, only had it set to Apple Pay before my account screwed up. 3. I have a leftover Sam’s Club loyalty card that will need to be removed from my account that I couldn’t remove before my account screwed up. I tried chat support. They never connected me to a rep, just the survey. I tried phone support, the call dropped while speaking with the rep. He never called back. I tried email support, they kept sending me pre canned messages instead of READING what I was asking them to do and trying to actually resolve my issues. As dumb as Siri and Alexa can be at times, Instacart’s support team is more incompetent. They might as well fire them all since a computer can perform better support than they can. I’m done with trying to resolve my issues. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY! I can drive to the store and get what I need faster than I can even try to login to their app..Version: 7.173.0
Buyers Beware !!!The Instacart Service itself is very convenient. The problem is that there are many hidden costs and fees that increase the overall cost to the ultimate consumer by at least 20-30%. Items may be on sale at the store itself, or more often, the actual costs are lower. Instacart pays for these items using their credit card, not yours, and they get those benefits. They may say that they had already negotiated set prices ahead of time... but then why not pass them on to the end user rather than pocket them surreptitiously.
On top of this, if an item is not available and they “replace” that item... then you are charged the higher amount even if the replaced item is on sale. Worse yet, should there be an issue with an item or it is not delivered, you will be charged unless you email or call up to complain. And if granted a refund, the appropriate proportion of the service fee and tip are not credited to your account. Also, should you have an issue, if not corrected the first time, NEVER will the same rep follow up with you.
Again, the service during these times is essential for some, but please be cognizant of these deficiencies and poor/questionable sales practices..Version: 7.38.0
Not so greatI won’t name names, but I’ve dealt with this shopper before & had problems before. I find that the men shoppers are more clueless than the women shoppers. I did not authorize substitutions, but gave very specific instructions for certain items. He bought a huge quantity of cases of a type of soda that I did not ask for. I’m wondering how well this shopper reads, because he just doesn’t seem to read & interpret the directions at all. For instance, I wanted freeze-dried mangos. I specifically stated that I did NOT want dried mangos, but freeze-dried mangos. He bought dried mangos, which contain sugar & other ingredients. This is frustrating because I now have to return all of these items. I’m handicapped, so I have to wait until my helper comes to return these items. Then, when I’ve had to return items before, my refund doesn’t show up in my bank account for about five days! I always hesitate to have Instacart shop for me because I’ve had more unsatisfactory experiences than good ones. If you use this service, be aware that it’s a crap shoot. Sometimes you get a great shopper who texts & communicates, but then you can also get someone who does not communicate or follow instructions & makes unauthorized substitutions that you have to end up returning. Oh well . . ..Version: 7.100.0
Very helpful app, but...I had to post this! I submitted below review a few days ago. Within 3 days I received a response from Kodi, that they will look into this issue immediately. So I m VERY impressed! THIS is what I would call a great customer service and focus on customers’ needs. Although I am confident that my suggestion — having an ability to open the items I’ve marked as my “Favorites” as a separate list to shop from — is a good one and that many shopper would likely find it extremely helpful, still; developer could have ignored it and moved on. Well, THANK YOU, Maplebear, and THANK YOU Kodi, for not ignoring a good suggestion. I look forward to seeing this feature in the app very soon.
This app is great on everything that I’ve explored so far. However, I noticed one big flaw (at least in my view): you cannot open a separate list that contains your favorite items, nor can you sort all items by your favorites. This somewhat defeats the purpose of having this feature in the first place, to be able to mark items as”favorite”. Perhaps the next updates can incorporate this also, where I can view my favorites, because I believe majority of people keep buying the same stuff most of the time..Version: 7.15.0
InstaCart ServiceI must say that overall I really enjoy the convenience of having an app that shops and delivers. I believe that Aldi has so far been the very best vendor. I have used Kroger. Meijer I don’t think I will use again because of their lack of following instructions. Barb A from there did not follow instructions. It seemed that she was afraid.I use this app because of the convenience to me. I use this app to shop for my elderly sister and her hubby. Neither drive a car. I asked for her to put the items inside of the apartment down the 6 or 7 steps down into their place. The couple is old and don’t do stairs well. The apartment that my sister lives in is not dangerous. My sister and her hubby are ages 71 and 75. If you cannot execute your job fully then you should choose another place to work. The whole point of using a service like this is for the convenience of it. If my sister or her hubby had fallen down the stairs from her ...(Barb A. )negligence I would be communicating differently to you. Fear cannot be the focus of performing your job thoroughly. I am upset about this.
Jamone ended up shopping AGAIN and delivering the items without incidence. My sister said he brought the items INTO THE KITCHEN!!! Wow. What awesome service!!

Zero Customer Support??Zero Customer Support?? My first order was canceled then I received a notice that my other two orders were canceled! The shopper said she knew nothing about it then immediately logged off. The following day I received a notice that they were delivered! Like heck they were!!! I hope I don't receive a charge for them because I cannot get a hold of them! In addition they need to refund several items since they included items to make a dish and the two main ingredients were in the other cart that wasn't delivered! I'm not spending $100 (min) on a dish that doesn't have the main ingredients! Their reasons for cancelation were bogus (because the store had different hours and low stock? Excuse me? They were open and had the ingredients!!) I don't know what they're up to but I'm really disappointed in the fact that there's NO ONE to speak with! They say to go to the website but the website just refreshes with the same image and you cannot click on it. It appears they've also whited out the comment section for review as well! So be sure to write your comments on a black email and change the color to black or dark gray or something similar..Version: 7.21.0
Customer Review of InstacartI appreciate a service that can shop and deliver food when someone either is unable or chooses not to go grocery shopping themselves. For the most part shoppers try hard to do everything they can to make
this a positive experience for the customer. They read and follow instructions, text when needed to clarify instructions, and notify a customer when an item is unavailable (and ask if they can get something else if the customer has not picked a possible replacement). I realize that even the most careful and conscientious shoppers can make mistakes, since no one is perfect. However, these mistakes can at times be frustrating for the shopper.
Especially if by just putting in a little extra effort by sending a quick text to clarify something would prevent the mistake. Today I received an order where I specifically asked for 2 pieces of fish I was going to cook for dinner. My order came and there was only 1 piece. Now I do not have enough servings of fish to make my dinner. This is frustrating. I don’t know if the shopper did not read the specific instructions or if the store was 1 piece short. If the shopper would have texted to tell me this, I could have asked for a replacement..Version: 7.117.2
Great App, Needs Some WorkI loved this APP when I first downloaded it. It was easy to use and navigate and the service it offers is amazing to someone who works full time with a long commute to and from work. Sometimes you get home from work and you just don’t want to have to deal with hassle of shopping. Especially for an introvert.
However this APP’s functions and customer service has seriously declined in the last couple of months. Adding items to your order? Sorry, gotta catch it before the shopper starts shopping! Want to cancel your order? Ha! There’s no option to. Even with the available instructions that illusive ‘cancel’ button simply doesn’t exist. So what’s the next step? Calling customer service. Which gets you nowhere - just an endless wait with no response.
If the developers of this APP could fix these highly frustrating issues (and customer service was a little more on point) I’d give this service 5 stars. Because, otherwise, it’s a seriously awesome service! The shoppers are always great - kind, polite, and work with you to make sure you get what you need as quickly as they can. However, with the markups this service charges in order to keep the operation afloat I expect better Customer Service response times and an APP that doesn’t hide some seriously important functions from you, the user..Version: 7.5.0
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..Version: 7.4.1
Love Using InstaCartWe really enjoy using Instacart to have groceries delivered. I only gave it 4 stars because I wish there was a way to choose preferred shoppers and there have been a couple of times they doubled up orders and our order wasn’t delivered until several hours after we’d requested and we had to cancel plans (the response was and “I’m
Sorry and here’s $15 odd your next order. 😐). That’s only happened a couple of times, though, out of the multitude of times we’ve used InstaCart. Otherwise, it is so nice to choose what groceries we want/need (provided it’s available through the app and things are more expensive) and have it delivered. The app usually provides really good communication about the status of the order and it’s pretty cool to see which items have been shopped and which ones are left to be shopped, and we get to approve any changes that need to be made. It’s also pretty cool to watch the delivery status as the driver is heading our way so we can be prepared. Overall, we really love InstaCart! We have used it weekly for probably a year and a half now. It is a bit more expensive but if you hate grocery shopping or have a reason that grocery shopping is difficult for you, then this is a great option. It will also help you cut back on impulse buys!.Version: 6.33.0
More expensive but good in emergenciesI appreciate the service in emergencies or when I’m extremely busy but it is definitely much more expensive than just going myself to the store. Especially when tipping the delivery people. It’s not affordable for me currently and I can’t find the worth in buying a membership when I should just go to the store myself, compare item prices, use coupons, and save money. When I do use it, I currently use stores that are labeled with “in store prices” because some items are raised in price. I also wish we could have the receipts so I could verify the in store prices and also scan them into Fetch 😜 I have had great shoppers in the past. It seems there is a new policy where if they need to make a replacement they only offer photos of the same brand. That has been annoying because I’m not buying for the brand usually. I’m buying for the product. Example would be white bread or sharp cheese. If the brand was out the shoppers send photos of wheat/rye bread and Monterey Jack cheese. It happens with all the drivers so it must be something they are told to do. Instacart definitely saved me when I was sick for 2 months with COVID in NYC and live alone. I couldn’t leave and was too weak to do so even if I could. Very grateful to all the amazing shoppers..Version: 7.98.1
AwfulNo items, three day wait, couldn’t figure out how to use the intercom in my building. Had to go down and get groceries. Defeats the purpose..Version: 7.19.0
Great app, bad serviceMy roommate used this app and she had an amazing experience so I decided to try it out. The app and user experience is great - you can interact with your shopper throughout the whole process. You don’t get access to deals and some prices are outrageous ($7.00 for one avocado). When I tried the app my shopper did everything in an hour and had it at my apartment in no time. The problem was he picked the absolutely worst produce - wilted leaves, bad tomatoes, yellow - brown bananas. So although the conscience was there I ended up throwing out half of the things I bought and went grocery shopping again myself. Good idea, needs improvement when it comes to the shoppers or some sort of reimbursement..Version: 6.1.2
