Listen up, this is a useful one! I recently discovered InstaCart.com, which delivers groceries to you the same day, and often in as little as one hour, operating in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. I’ve been using FreshDirect for a long time, but their delivery times are kind of bringing me down. Unless you order really early, you likely won’t get your delivery until late the next day. In step InstaCart.
I love that you can choose which local markets to shop. Currently available in my downtown NYC location are Whole Foods, Fairway & Costco. HOORAY! I placed my first order and 10 minutes later, my personal shopper was already at Fairway, calling to confirm a few options with me.
Delivery is free for your first order. After that, it starts at $3.99 for two hour delivery and $5.99 for one hour delivery when you spend $35 or more. Or you can enroll in their yearly delivery membership (kind of like Amazon Prime, but this is $99/year for free deliveries over $35).
I am super pumped about this life hack, if you can’t tell! I wanted to share the good news with you so you can start benefiting, especially during this season of freezing temps and hectic holiday schedules. Gone are the days of having nothing in the apartment and eating peanut butter out of the jar for lunch. Thank you, Instacart!
Happy grocery shopping!
