Instacart: Mom’s Newest Dream Come True—Plus a Giveaway!

Instacart3We are thrilled to welcome our new partner, Instacart, to San Antonio. We have worked with Instacart to bring this sponsored post to ACMB readers since we think their services are incredible!

Does the thought of loading your children up to make a trip to the grocery store give you hives? Do you dread fighting the parking lot traffic, forcing your children into a grocery cart, blindly placing items in your cart because you are trying to keep everyone pacified, and suffering through an hour of grocery shopping with the full chance that someone will have a meltdown and you’ll have to abandon ship before you even get to the check out line? Are there days you wish your groceries would just magically show up on your doorstep? Instacart heard your cries! Moms, suffer no more!

Instacart is a grocery delivery service that has recently made an appearance in the Alamo City and we are thrilled! Imagine a delivery service that can deliver your groceries from H-E-B, Central Market, Whole Foods, Spec’s, Total Wine & More, Petco, and Costco (no membership needed, might we add!) in as little as one hour. And y’all, it’s so simple!


Here’s how it works:

1. Go online to Instacart or download the Instacart app.
2. Pick the grocery store you’d like to shop from, and fill your cart.
3. At checkout, pick a convenient delivery time for your groceries to arrive. Instacart can deliver in as little as one hour, or you can schedule your delivery up to a week in advance.
4. Relax while a personal Instacart shopper hand picks your groceries and delivers them to your doorstep!

You can check the Instacart website for locations to see which stores can be delivered to your house.

  1. During the summer having to take 3 kids to the store can ruin a morning I would love to spend that time at the pool instead!

  2. I’ve used a service liked this before, and I found that I saved a lot of money, even with delivery fees. The amount of stuff that I toss in the cart while browsing is insane. Being able to buy only what’s on my list is only possible for me if someone else does my shop!! 🙂
    I’ve also not figured out how to grocery shop with my 3 little ones yet, so this could be a lifesaver.

  3. I’m excited for this because I hate taking my 1 year old shopping. He throws a fit every time and constantly demands snacks.

  4. Because I could secretly order the ice cream and chocolate I wish j had right now without letting my kids in on it. Also, like every other mom, I’d prefer to not drag two kids to the store with me when I can have it delivered

  5. It would work out really good for me. I could come home relax with the kids and order groceries while I’m just sitting on the couch instead of having to go and spend 2 hrs shopping at the store.

  6. I love this idea! I am a busy working mom with two crazy kids, and never have enough time to shop. I can order healthy foods and have them just delivered.

  7. Online shopping and delivery of groceries will make my life so much easier! As a business owner, I just want to go home to my family at the end of the day and not worry about stopping at the store.

  8. I think this just made my LIFE! With four daughters ages 7, 6, 5, and 3, going to the store is the craziest chore in the world, plus with my van’s AC not working, and it smelling like mildew after getting caught in a flooded street last week…I am so over having to drive it any more than 100% necessary, ha ha ha. I neeeeeeeeeeed this!
