Instacart is an app that brings you groceries on-demand. Like food delivery services DoorDash and Uber Eats, they’re brought right to your door with safe, no-contact delivery.
You can shop at local grocery and convenience stores with Instacart. Once you place your order, a personal shopper will be sent to pluck your items off the shelves, check out, and drop them off on your doorstep. Because Instacart workers are freelancers, make sure to tip.
For $9.99 a month – or a cheaper $99 annual cost – you can purchase an Instacart Express Membership. You’ll get free deliveries for orders over $35 and reduced service fees on all orders.
But if you’re reading this article, you’ve likely given that service a try and decided it’s not for you.
Canceling is easy and can be done at any time. You can also request to have your free account deleted, but that will require a phone call.
How to delete your Instacart account
If you’re done with Instacart entirely and have no desire to use a free membership, you’ll have to call the company at 888-246-7822. Make sure you have your account information handy.
If you’re not interested in using the app, you can always just delete it from your device.
