“Over the past year we’ve seen incredible demand in the Texarkana area. We work with a variety of local retailers to provide the freshest, highest quality groceries to our customers. Launching in Texarkana gives us an opportunity to expand service in Texas. We’re also excited to build a world class shopper community, where we can offer fun and flexible income earning opportunities for our shoppers, who ultimately deliver this amazing service to the community.”

How Instacart works: Customers go online to or open the Instacart mobile app on their iPhone or Android device, select their city and store, add items to a virtual cart, then choose a delivery window (within one hour, within two hours, or up to five days in advance) and check out. An Instacart shopper accepts the order on his/her smartphone, uses the Instacart shopper app to guide them through shopping, and then delivers the order to the customer within the designated delivery timeframe.

For orders of $35 or more, the delivery fee is just $5.99. Many customers also take the opportunity to save big over time by signing up for Instacart Express membership, which enables unlimited, free same-day delivery on orders of $35 or more. After a free trial period, Instacart Express membership is just $14.99 a month or $149 a year.

First time users can also enter the code HITEXARKANA (01/31/19 expiration) at checkout to get $20 off an order of $35 or more, plus a free first time delivery.
