Apple Will Cover Your Instacart Delivery for Memorial Day Celebrations
Interested in trying the home delivery service? There's a quick and easy way to avoid the $5.99 delivery fee through May 23.
Apple's pay-with-your-phone Apple Pay app has slowly but surely gotten iPhone users into using the admittedly life-changing hack of using a phone in place of a credit card at supermarkets, restaurants and stores. And San Francisco tech company Instacart has been bringing same-day grocery delivery to users since 2012.
But if you've been debating whether or not to give either Instacart or Apple Pay a try, Apple's offering a great promotion that might just finally sway you to pay for groceries with your face.
The tech giant has teamed up with Instacart to offer Apple Pay users free delivery on groceries purchased with Instacart's mobile app through Wednesday, May 23.
You'll still need to order at least $35 worth of groceries, but you'll avoid the delivery fee if you use Apple Pay instead of a credit or debit card at Instacart checkout. You don't even need to be a new Apple Pay user to qualify for the deal—anyone with Apple Pay can cash in on the deal.

Normally, those with Instacart Express qualify for free delivery on orders over $35—but the annual membership fee is around $14.99 a month, or $149 annually. Curious shoppers who haven't shopped with Instacart yet will pay a predetermined fee based on the order's size, which usually amounts to about $5.99 on each order. There's also a policy known as "Busy Pricing" that'll increase fees during the busiest parts of the day.
Instacart has partnered with various leading grocery stores so that you can shop without leaving your house: Whole Foods, ALDI, Target, Wegmans, Costco, Stop & Shop, Publix, and Sprouts are some of the biggest chains the service works with. Instacart varies their services by region as well, so be sure to check which supermarkets offer Instacart delivery on their website.
