We’re always looking for ways to enhance the shopper experience and ensure the perks that we offer support your needs. Earlier this year, we collected your input on what other types of perks you’d like to access. With that feedback in mind, we’re excited to share a suite of new offerings through perks partners that focus on general wellness — including mental, physical and social well-being. 

Doctor on Demand Behavioral Health Program 

Shoppers now have access to Doctor on Demand’s Behavioral Health Program, offering you access to mental health resources to get expert care from licensed therapists and psychiatrists. Therapy sessions and psychiatry sessions start at just $4, and their providers are equipped to help you address any concerns or issues you have pertaining to your mental health. If you haven’t joined Doctor on Demand already, you can sign up using the email address associated with your Instacart shopper account. 

$10 HSA Contribution from Starship

We’ve partnered with Starship to help you spend, save, and invest in a Health Savings Account (HSA), all tax-free. From today through July 24, 2021, Starship is giving Instacart shoppers $10 for your HSA, which will be automatically added to your account when you sign up.* Click here to get started.

Contributing to an HSA can help ensure you have funds set aside for healthcare expenses, including common items like over-the-counter medications, doctor copays, and first aid. You can learn more about the benefits of having an HSA here, or check out Starship’s FAQ for more information.

Perkspot Wellness Discounts

Shoppers have access to a wide range of customized perks through Perkspot, including an assortment of discounts on wellness products and offerings, as well as services to help you have a fun summer:

  • Looking for additional mental health discounts? Perskpot offers you $100 off any online therapy plan from Talkspace, and $40 off the Core Meditation Trainer & Premium App.
  • Planning a summer trip? Save 20% off best available rates at all Holiday Inn Club Vacations® Resorts! You can also receive 8% off a boating experience through Boatsetter.
  • What about quality family time with the kids at home? You can get 40% off your first month’s box of hands-on science and art projects (ages 0-16+) through Kiwi Co. 
  • Cruising around your hometown? Shoppers are offered $100 off an e-bike purchase through Rad Power Bikes.

To get access to these offers, visit the Instacart Perkspot website. If you’re a new shopper, keep an eye out for an email welcoming you to the platform. Happy saving and summer planning!
