Apple Pay Promo Offers Free Delivery With Instacart

For the last few months, Apple has been offering regular promotions to entice customers to use Apple Pay within various apps.

This week, Apple has teamed up with Instacart to offer free delivery on groceries purchased in the Instacart app using Apple Pay through February 28.

To get the deal, customers will need to spend at least $35 per order, and taxes and service fees still apply. Free delivery is also contingent on availability, as Instacart has something called "Busy Pricing" which is an added fee during the busiest parts of the day.

Free delivery from Instacart for orders over $35 normally requires a membership to Instacart Express, a service that costs $14.99 per month or $149 per year. Apple's free delivery offers an opportunity for potential Instacart customers to test Instacart Express.

Without Instacart Express, normal Instacart orders cost $5.99 in delivery fees.

Apple's new promotional email also highlights several grocery stores that offer Apple Pay, including Raley's, Giant Eagle, Sprouts,
Stop & Shop, Whole Foods, and Wegmans.

Does anyone know what Apple email list are these coming from? Between MR and 9to5Mac, I've been trying to figure out how to get those emails myself (totally would've used the Dunkin' one awhile back).

I believe that was a Midwest-only promo from last year. Now you get the first delivery free. So if you're an Instacart user like me that only uses the service occasionally, this is a great deal.
I have been using it for months. Either weekly or bi-weekly. The answer to my dreams.

This is MR's second "news" about Instacart. If you join Instacart, there are no fees for the first year. There is no deal here.
