Default Instacart ....groceries delivered. Don't do it - Fuckers

Anyone tried this yet? I did for the first time today. It was a terrible experience

$165 inital order and a 10% "service" fee....which you can wave but i assume it goes to the person doing the shopping. Since they get your order they can see if you waived this or not...my guess is if you waive it you are a cheap ass and they will half ass your order

So I paid the service fee...2 hours later some chick drops off my groceries. I did get text notifications asking if a substitute was ok for certain items. I agreed for things like salami and turkey etc

So the she shows up with 4 bags... you would think anyone who knows how to shop would put bread on the top. She didn't. Thankfully I didn't get eggs.
I get the email saying she spent $144..ok that's cool....then I noticed that she literally got nothing from the deli. Not a damn thing. One of them was a substituted item that I approved too.

So I paid $13 for this "service", got charged for stuff she didn't buy or deliver and now I filed a claim with them and have to go to the store and get the shit myself. I get an email back saying they will credit me for my next order. haha go fuck yourself. There won't be a next order

So save yourself the money and go elsewhere.
Also you will notice that the prices are slightly inflated too which I expected.

I'm assuming you guys don't have Amazon Prime Now yet. It's basically 1 - 2 hour delivery for anything, groceries included. Delivery is free and the app suggests what you tip the driver but it's generally just $5 - $10.

I ordered a PS4 last year and had it within an hour and we order from restaurants all the time as well. Doesn't do you any good now but it's coming soon I'm sure.

For groceries, try Peapod. They're the original home grocery delivery service and will probably be hard to beat. I've been using them for years and really don't have much issue. Their produce is very good and they pick stuff better than I probably would. They give you a time window where they will deliver.

Good customer service and delivery is reasonable too.

Walmart grocery pickup - you're welcome. Zero cost and its amazing. But you have to atleast drive there. They bring it out to you and load your car. They will even open and close the trunk/hatch. We do it once a week. Its epic. Oh and walmart prices too for everything.

We did it once and did like the produce and deli stuff. Haven't looked into it since. Someone bought it for us when the wife was home on leave.

This. Weíve been doing this the last couple of weeks. I already live less than a mile from a Walmart so itís super convenient. Plus you donít have to deal with the 900 checkouts with only 3 having a cashier

Ha Ha! I was thinking the same thing.

As men, we may not all head for the woods and shoot our meals but we can hunter/gatherer the best steaks from the grocery store.

I used Instacart a couple times. I like it. No problems


Thought about using Peapod because they deliver directly to your home.

Exactly, plus you can grab a little something we shouldn't eat if it catches your eye.

Ha I don't mind it but with our busy schedule anything to save time is a benefit. Plus it keeps me from buying junk food

The downside if you forget something you have to go get it

Get an Alexa/Google Home. You tell Alexa to add an item to your shopping list and it's automatically on your phone.

Works great. "Hmm, I just used the last egg. "Alexa, add eggs to the shopping list.""

We've used PeaPod. It was cool coming home after a shitty day at work and all my groceries are waiting for me. Good service.

Peapod, no amazon service here yet.

I avoid Walmart like the blue waffle.

Thanks for the review on instacart, I was considering looking at it.

I think it's like $15 a month to use the service though?

We tried Blue Apron a while back, that's just meals, not really grocery shopping. The food was good, but the health content was horrid. I thought it would be fresh/healthy ingredients, but it was loaded with cholesterol and sodium, like more than 50% of the daily allowance for one meal.

Someone bought us a few meals (from a place in downers grove) and it was pretty good....until I found a hair in my meal. I looked into it myself..it's almost cheaper to go out to dinner every night.

That too. I know the service is supposed to cost more than what you would do if you picked it out from the grocery store, but it was comparable to going out to dinner....and you had to cook it yourself.

Haven't done the Blue Apron but I've tried the Hello Fresh and another that the name escapes me on. We only do them when they are offering the deals so it costs about the same as buying the stuff from the store. We mainly used them to get some new ideas and recipes. There have been quite a few that opened our eyes to some new things which is great because eating the same shit month after month get's old.

I am too picky to have someone else pick out my groceries so I can't see ever using a delivery service

Didn't know about the Walmart curb side.

Good to know

Amazon Fresh is $15 a month additional to your prime membership and is delivered to your door. Not sure where you're seeing a $299 number?

As long as you're spending more than $40 per delivery, there is no charges, if it's less than $40 it's $10 delivery.





You can look it up by zip code if it's delivered to your area. I get it here in Streamwood.
