Same as in-store pricing
Prices displayed reflect the average in-store, pre-tax, per unit prices for this retailer in your area based on available data feeds, subject to delays and errors. Prices and availability can change without notice. Actual in-store prices at the time a purchase is made, including those for weighted items, may differ from those available through the Instacart platform.
Everyday store pricing
We allow our retail partners to set competitive pricing according to their business needs. Whole Food Market and Target have chosen not to offer sale prices at this time. Actual in-store prices at the time a purchase is made, including those for weighted items and items on sale in-store, may differ from those available through the Instacart platform. This is referred to as Everyday Store Pricing, where prices and availability can change without notice, and are set at the discretion of the retailer.
The delivery fee depends on the size of your order and the delivery time that you choose. The specific delivery fee for your order will be displayed when you choose a delivery time during checkout before you place your order.
When we experience high demand for a delivery time, a Busy Pricing fee may apply in addition to the delivery fee. Busy Pricing is also shown clearly at checkout.
With Instacart Express, you get free delivery on 1 hour, 2 hour & scheduled grocery deliveries over $35.
Please keep in mind that all orders must be $10 or more.
Are Instacart prices different from in-store prices?
When possible, Instacart works with retailers to bring you the same prices as found in the physical store. In some cases prices may be higher than in-store. We don’t honor in-store discounts (although we make available Instacart Coupons from time to time). You can see detail about pricing at the stores in your area here (you must be logged in): https://www.instacart.com/store/prices.
Who sets the prices on Instacart?
All prices on Instacart are based on the prices set by the retailer. Where the prices are marked “Same as in store,” the retailer has set the prices to reflect, on average, the in-store prices of that retailer in your local area. Where the prices indicate that they are higher than in-store, the price of an item is based on the price set by the retailer, upon which Instacart may add a standard mark-up to partially cover the cost of delivery to you. Instacart does not add a mark-up to the price of alcohol items.
What does “15%+ higher than in-store” pricing mean?
This means that the average price of items on Instacart is 15% higher or more compared to the average price of that retailer in your local area.
What if I find an item that is priced incorrectly or unfairly?
If you notice an item that you believe is priced incorrectly or unfairly, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will look into it as soon as possible.
Note: We reserve the right to cancel an order for any reason, including as a result of items that are priced incorrectly. If we do cancel an order, we will refund your account for the amount paid.
Instacart Coupons are manufacturer’s coupons that are automatically applied to qualifying products upon purchase to help our users save money on the products they love.
If the item is replaced with a qualifying item, you will still receive the discount. If it is replaced with a non-qualifying item or refunded, or if the coupon requirements are otherwise no longer met, you will not receive the discount.
We do not honor in-store sales and coupons.
There are, however, sales and promotions that are available on Instacart that may not be available in-store.
To see what discounts are available for a particular store, you can:

Also, you will also notice any item on sale during your normal Instacart shopping experience because the price is in pink.

Depending on the region of your delivery, the tips are either given to your personal shopper or delivery driver.

The service amount defaults to 10% of your order total, but you are able to remove the amount or select a different amount before you finish placing your order.

The service amount you pay is used by Instacart to provide high guaranteed commissions to shoppers through the Instacart platform. However, this payment is not a tip and won’t go directly to the shopper who delivered your order.
We calculate the service amount percentage based on the initial dollar amount of your order. We feel that the same amount of time and care is taken by your shopper, even if a few items may be replaced, added or refunded!
