Bug fixes and performance improvements.
Instacart offers the ability to shop for your groceries remotely and have them delivered to your designated location within a chosen hour time frame.
It's clear that a great deal effort went into designing and developing the organizational structure, navigation, and functionality of the app. It is extremely intuitive to use, the interface is beautiful, the navigation is logical, and the functionalities facilitate the most efficient communication between the user and the instacart employees. For instance, you can specify precisely what you'd like to do in the event that an item you wish to purchase is not in stock, and if you'd like to replace, the app allows you to specify which specific item to replace it with.
The delivery fees are affordable and reasonable. The app also does a great job explaining how any tips you'd like to give the shoppers/delivery people are distributed, while giving you the flexibility to choose who you're giving it to.
Well worth the extra cost
I know what you're thinking: "I'm a perfectly capable adult human who doesn't need someone else to go grocery shopping for me." But how often do you actually buy groceries and cook your own food? Definitely not often enough. Before instacart my bf and I ordered delivery all the time. I tried to get a handle on things and shop from the grocery store, but going there and buying the correct items at the correct time was just challenging enough to stop me from doing it.
Now, thanks to instacart, I can buy exactly the items that I need and not wander around the store inevitable forgetting something and also adding unneeded snacks to my cart. Whenever I notice that I need an ingredient, I immediately put it in my instacart. Then, on days when I want to cook, I place the order during the day and my groceries are ready when I get home from work. It saves so much time and I have brought my own lunch to work so many days in a row! I haven't done the math but I imagine the service is paying for itself in that way. Also, I have become a more confident cook now that I can call up the ingredients that I need so easily.
Thank you instacart!!
PS. You may also be concerned when you order something like produce or meat, will my instacart shopper make a good selection? So far I have not had any problems with the shopper's choices. All good quality.
Best Service Planning and Time Management
I've been using Instacart for several years now. It's a wonderful service that enables me to plan my meals, holidays well and frees me to handle my life's demands.
For example, I drive 4 hours to visit my dad whose 89 years old and my brother who is a quadriplegic. It's usually stressful when I plan a trip the required me to be gone for a few days. I used Instacart to shop for groceries, fruits, vegetables, wine, etc. at the same time I'm cleaning my house and prepping my pets meals etc.
by the time my items are delivered, I'm organized and have my car packed with everything including the shopped items.
Whenever I get an inkling to bake a cake or cookies, this Service works well as most of my items are delivered within an hour or two.
The people I've met are professional, kind and helpful. They call if they're not sure what to select and we work together as a team.
I make a point of tipping them well and reduce their service fee to 0 since that's optional.
This is a perfect app for the over committed mom or professional!
