Very interesting reviews. I use Instacart to have my groceries shopped and delivered, and have thought about working with them when I get a car, but I thought more seriously about it... NOT!! I don't do my own grocery shopping!! LOL I like having the groceries delivered, but my shoppers/drivers tend to shop neighborhood stores. Normally, I would not. Some are very inexperienced as shoppers and what you get may not be exactly what you ordered. Food prices are too expensive (can't take...

Since I started delivering for Instacart some time ago, they have implemented something in their app that allows you to pick up any extra orders that people scheduled to work can't do. Since then, I have never scheduled myself for shifts but rather just picked up any orders that I had time to do. I really like the flexibility this allows and it means you can choose to do delivery only orders or do orders that include having to shop for the items. This way, if the distance for delivery is too...

I do some shopping for them off and on. Honestly, I have only done it two times but I have had a decent experience each time. You get paid more if you sign up to do both the shopping and the delivery but you also have the option of doing one or the other. Out of the two orders I got, one was just pick up and deliver and the other one was shop and deliver. Both times went smoothly and I had no issues. You won't make a killing with Instacart, but it is a great way to earn some cash on the side.

That's what I was hopping for. I can't drive but I can walk to Walmart and stop and shop, so I figured I could fill orders at least.

@Elaine Dalton for the "shopping" part, it will have to be with a store that is partnered with Instacart. I know in my area, the Walmart's are not but if the Walmart near you is, then it should work. The shopper only part is more like a job in that they pay you by the hour. If Walmart is not a partner, I have noticed that a lot of smaller more local grocery stores tend to partner with them so that might ultimately be where you would have to go although that would only work if there was one...

@rtms77 They pay by direct deposit into your linked bank account, or you can cash out instantly for a small fee directly to a debit card. As far as I am aware, they do not provide any type of insurance. What type of insurance you need would probably be a question for your auto insurance company. You are responsible for your own taxes with Instacart. Because you are considered a sub-contractor, you get paid the full amount and then have to pay your own taxes.

So I did Instacart for about 3 1/2 years and this is my review. It’s an easy way to make extra money on your own schedule similar to other gigs such as Postmates, Uber/Lyft, etc. As others have mentioned don’t expect to get rich on this job. My first two years I was making an extra $500-$1000+/month but it’s slowed down since then dramatically. I slowed down over the past year. This is due in part to the pay going way down due to saturation of too many shoppers on the platform/fluctuations...

I’ve worked Lyft, Uber, Postmates, Uber Eats, a food delivery service called Caviar (similar to Eat24 and Grubhub), and yes, Instacart. In evaluating them, I compared the average money I made (including tips) to the time spent actually working for it (not just time spent using the apps, which can be misleading). It came out to: Lyft, $26/hr; Uber, $25/hr; Postmates, $17/hr; Caviar & Uber Eats, $15/hr; and Instacart, $12/hr. Those numbers can be a little misleading, because they don’t...

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...
