You have likely seen reports of rising grocery prices which, along with supply chain shortages, have many shoppers concerned.

So the timing seems quite good for Instacart’s recent announcement about several new ways for online shoppers to save money.

“For most families, when it comes to grocery shopping we know that every dollar matters,” said Asha Sharma, chief operating officer of San Francisco-based Instacart. “That’s why we’re proud to roll out these new features that help customers get exactly what they need, while also saving along the way.”

The new offers, which are accessible via the Instacart app, include:

  • New Reduced-Cost and Free Delivery: In select markets, Instacart is testing a new delivery option, which will reduce or waive the delivery fee on orders placed more than 24 hours in advance of the desired delivery date and time.
  • Savings with the Deals Tab: offers savings with daily coupons from retailers and consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies. Customers can visit the Deals Tab to browse sales in their area and save on weekly staples, bulk products or special-occasion items.
