Instacart has announced several new features rolling out across the Instacart App that are designed to make online grocery shopping more affordable. From a Deals Tab and exclusive savings for Express members to a new reduced cost and free delivery option and new Dollar Store Hub destination on the Instacart marketplace, the company is rolling out ways for customers to save when shopping from their favourite retailers.
New savings features from Instacart: The Dollar Store Hub, the Deals Tab, Reduced Cost and Free Delivery options, and 5 per cent credit back on Pickup orders for Instacart Express members.
This new slate of features comes at a time when grocery costs are continuing to rise across North America ahead of the holidays and amid increasing global supply chain challenges. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, prices for groceries and other food prepared at home increased by 2.6 per cent over the past year—and that's on top of a 3.5 per cent increase from 2019.
