Staying at Home: Instacart Review

Let’s be honest – pandemic or not, getting groceries delivered to your house is a huge help for us gamers. When you are in that massive online raid, the last thing you want to do is stop and run errands.

Enter Instacart. There are tons of services now for this kind of thing, but we’ve been a big fan of Instacart for a while now. Other services don’t offer a wide range of stores to choose from, with proper inventory and ease of use.

The shops to choose from vary by location, but I frequently use Vons, Gelson’s, and Albertsons. But even Costco is available, which I have never seen on any other service. Seeing as Costco is one of the most stressful in-store experiences I’ve ever had, having a delivery option is a dream.

We also get a lot of use out of their Ralphs “Delivery Now” feature, where you get free delivery within an hour as long as your cart is $10 or more. Individual items cost a little more with that, but it’s worth it if you need a small cart worth of groceries.

Non-subscription prices start at $3.99 for orders over $35. If you do subscribe to Instacart Express, it’s $99 a year or $9.99 a month, which replaces the delivery fee. So if you are using the service frequently, it’s well worth subscribing.
