Free delivery will still be subject to availability in certain areas, and service fees and taxes will apply to your order. If your area supports the promotion, you can save $5.99 or more on an Instacart order, with delivery fees starting at that price point and increasing when factoring in the size and time of the order. Delivery fees can also be affected by "Busy Pricing," 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. Otherwise, this week's promotion highlights grocery stores where you can checkout using Apple Pay: Trader Joe's, Giant, Smart & Final, SuperValu, Food Lion, and Winn-Dixie.
Instacart has been a popular app in Apple's ongoing Apple Pay promotion series, previously being featured through similar offers in January and February. The last few promotions have offered flowers via 1-800-Flowers for Mother's Day, furniture through Hayneedle, and french fries from McDonald's.
