Instacart+ Membership gift card

Instacart+ membership provides your recipient with free delivery and reduced service fees on qualifying orders. An Instacart+ Membership gift card can only be used for redeeming an Instacart+ membership. It can’t be used at checkout for items, tips, taxes, or to cover all fees. 

If you would like to send an Instacart+ Membership gift card, you can select from the following options—

  • 3 months - $29
  • 6 months - $59
  • 1 year - $99

Note: If the recipient of an Instacart+ Membership gift card doesn’t already have an Instacart+ membership, the membership will not auto-renew once the gift card membership ends. 

If they had an Instacart+ account before receiving the gift card and have the auto-renew feature on, their plan will auto-renew as normal. The gift card amount will be added to their existing membership term.
