Reply to "Instacart"

I've been doing Instacart for about two years. My honest review:

+ Schedule flexibility. + No people (just groceries) in my car. + Most people tip well, especially on rainy days. + DEFINITELY rounds out the budget - cash-flowed a trip to Disneyland two years ago and I've paid down $8000 in debt over the last year.  + I commute over an hour to my primary job, so picking up a batch or two on my way home makes my commute (gas and tolls) tax deductible. + I make enough from my primary job to not need to withhold.  + I now know where to find *everything* in *every* local store, most parking lot- accessible wifi, and back road alternative routes to everything in 7 zones around my region.

- App can be buggy, but has stabilized a bit since moving to the App Store.  - Shopping speed metrics directly conflict with good customer service; you can shop at a rate of 50 seconds an item OR confer with your customer about their preferred replacement - you can't do both.

Overall, more pluses than minuses for my purposes.
