Instacart Customer service/refunds

I have been using this service several times a week for well over a year, as I have been struggling with health issues so the "convenience" of this services has its benefits, when it runs smoothly. Unfortunately some of the shoppers dont communicate when swapping items and purchase things that are beyond the same or similar price, buy the wrong item, buy expired or damages items or charge you for the item and it doesn't arrive. I've even had my groceries delivered to some other address. My delivery instructions also list to leave at the side door, which on numerous occasions it has been left on my front door, which I have no access to.

Because apparently I have received too many refunds for legitimate shopping mistakes I now get referred to having to deal with the appeals department, where I have to email my complaints, and I either hear nothing at all back or my appeal gets denied. The appeals department has no direct phone line, nd the customer service helpline is unable to do anything regarding appeals, so you are left in limbo while the company and its shoppers steal money from a single mother dealing with severe health issues on a limited income. Its disgusting.

For a company who brags about its convenience and customer service and support, prays on the innocent who believe that to be true and rely on the service. I cant imagine how many seniors or severely disabled people have been ripped off

I have requested on numerous occasions for them to go through all my appeals and grant the refunds back to me. These are legitimate complaints about legitimate issues, your shoppers mistakes are not something I should be paying for.

Desired outcome: Refund my outstanding appeals, and acquire a better customer service set up that allows better access to the appeals department, and train shoppers better.

Instacart Fraud

So I wake to find my instacart account has been hacked and someone is shopping and having items delivered to a hotel room across the other side of the country - mind you it is a hotel room with a room number the chat history has the person talking to the shoppers and telling them to leave the items outside the hotel room.

So, I contact instacart they ask a bunch of questions and say ok let's deactivate your account and give us 24hrs to look into this. Meanwhile the person in the hotel room has gotten away with fraud I had to call my bank to cancel my bank card so now I have no access to funds until my new card arrives but worse instacart could call the police and have them go to that hotel room or find out who booked the room before other people experience the same its not a small amount of orders or money but no instacart won't do this they say wait 24hrs this is crazy people are committing fraud and they do little about it and they don't have a number you can call only a chat person who send emails this is the worst service ever.

You want the police to go to a hotel because your account was charged for that, $100? People are being murdered, children are being beaten to death... Your bank gives you your money back, get over it. Crying cause they didn't send the SWAT team to raid the hotel for you is ridiculous.

Instacart improper billing

I was promised a redelivery for an order from Rosauers that was delivered on Jan 13 to a wrong street and number. the redelivery was received on Jan 14 but was not complete because several items were refunded. The original amount of 92.36 remains on my debit card which means that the original delivery amount was charged when items were missing in the redelivery.

Desired outcome: billing should be reduced to reflect the items not delivered in the redilivery

Instacart Instacart

On January 16th, I placed two orders. One order with Tony's Finer Foods for $105.00 and one order with Sam's Club for $165.00. I was charged 2 times back to back. I was charged over $550.00 for my two orders. My account was then overdrawn. I spoke to one customer service employee and 2 supervisors and a woman named Kelly who claimed she was a senior supervisor. Kelly, was very argumentative and kept blaming the double charges on BMO Harris. She then told me that it was my fault because, "charges just don't magically appear" She then told me it was my fault because I didn't have the funds available in my account so they tried 4 times. I said to her, if I didn't have funds, all of the charges totaling over $550 wouldn't have been debited. It has been two days now and I have received no reimbursement. I will never order again from Instacart.

Desired outcome: I would like all of my money back. I will need the overcharge back AND the two 9.99 fees I was charged from my cable and internet companies when their payments didn't go through because of Instacarts double charging.

Instacart Order did not come.

On 2/14/23/ I placed an order for some salad and some badly needed bandages. To this day 2/17/23 I have not received my order. You keep giving delivery dates but you don't show up.
Cancel. And if I happen to be in the club, do not charge me. I will never use you again.
This was a Publix in Fayetteville, GA. If you can't advise me you will not be bringing my stuff, just say so and don't have me waiting while you keep changing the delivery date. You suck. I am handicapped and I needed those bandages.
A special [censored] you very much.

Desired outcome: CANCEL MY ORDER AND ANY MEMBERSHIP ACCT I MAY HAVE JOINED. I WILL NEVER USE YOU AGAIN.

Instacart Overcharging for Tip

On Dec. 31st I placed a rather large order at my local grocery store. The total came to $257 and Instacart charged me $72 for a tip. I went in within the two-hour window that you have to change your tip to $20. Not only did Instacart charge me the $72, but also charged me the $20. I have been on the phone for the past two weeks trying to clear this up with them. I get on the phone today and the woman was so incredibly nasty and told me there was nothing that could be done. I told her to cancel my account on the spot! Never again!

Instacart Fairway

I've cancelled my last 2 fairway orders and will not order again from them. In my last order I included 6 bottles of Hal's seltzer (1/2 liter size) & an 8-pack of Poland springs black cherry carbonated water (1/2 liter bottles).

Plus some bread, hot dog buns, Kellogg's breakfast bars.

THEY ADDED A $10 HEAVY CHARGE!

That is OUTRAGEOUS. No other store includes this charge.

Another issue is Walgreens. I ordered 3 6-packs of Diet Coke bottles listed for $4.99 each. My order was cancelled. Later that day, I went into Walgreens. There was a shelf of Diet Coke 6-pack bottles listed at $5.99.

They would not honor the listed price on the Instacart web site.

As a result, I doubt I'll renew my service.

Thank you.

Merle Bolonkin

Desired outcome: Outrageous weight charges from fairway removed & honor listed prices.

Instacart Double charged me

On December 13,2022 I placed an order with Instacart the total amount was $159.14 plus a $21.51 delivery fee that was supposed to be free for that order. Instacart took the $149.14 out of my account on December 13th and,14. I have contacted Instacart multiple times about this matter to either be ignored or get no resolution. Because they took it upon themselves to double charge me it overdrafted my account. I had to pay overdraft fees plus come up with the extra money to put back back in my account to recover my bills. This has been one of the most horrible experiences of my life and don't recommend Instacart to anyone ever. One representative told me my refund was processed and would be back in my account in 10-14 days and it never was.

Desired outcome: Refund

Instacart Instacart

I've worked for these people for the last 4 months, they have no service available to their drivers so if you get into a jam you wait on hold for 40 minutes through the app only. My last order for them was the Thursday before Christmas at Costco, it was slammed and their app shut down. I paid for the groceries out of my own pocket and finally someone answered, they chewed me out for using my own funds. I received a 1 star review from the customer, which I found out later is related to the founder. In essence, this company is a product of satan's work, however, if you're completely desperate this is your wonderland.

I was already late for holiday evening and the only open store was far. We spent 100 dollars on UBER. our party was almost screwed up.The company offered me 10$ certificate to my next puchase. I am not going to use this company any more for the awful service and customer support and insist on normal compensation.

Desired outcome: Compensatio

Instacart Shopper stole packages

An instacart shopper delivered to a neighbor at my friend's apartment on sunday, Jan. 1, 2023 around 4:30pm. I had left 2 christmas presents at her door as I walked back to my car to call them to see how much longer they were going to be before they arrived. During this time, a black large SUV arrived in the parking lot and a black male got out with bags. He preceded up the apartment stairs and by my friend's apartment on the 2nd floor. He continued to the 3rd floor to drop off the groceries. I walked back up the stairs and the packages I had set there were gone. He jumped into the SUV and drove off with whoever was driving. This all occured within less than 10 minutes. He stole the packages as he delivered to another apartment.

I called your customer cares within 15 minutes of this happening. The person was unable to assist telling me that she would send me a form to fill out. I gave her the address of the delivery. She never sent the form.

The police were called and a report was done. The lower level apartment has a ring video of the person.

What are you going to do about this? Y'all know who delivered to this address!

Occurred at: Trophy Club Apartments

Address of where packages were stolen: 2620 Stableside Ct apt 203-12

Address of where Instacart shopper delivered: Apt 205-12

My contact info: [protected]@gmail.com

Desired outcome: I want this person terminated for stealing. He did not hesitate to take the packages. I would also like to be compensated for our loss.

Instacart Instacart, free membership with hidden fees.

Instacart, great concept, but a huge rip-off. They have zero customer service knowledge and deliveries are never complete as ordered. They charge for membership, service fees, service fee tax, traveling fees and container fees. None of these fees are disclosed prior to processing payment. They also expect a 10% gratuity with the option to increase!

Customer service has been contacted several times and they simply send out form letters to address issues. Their BBB rating is 1.1/5 closing over 4,652 complaints in the past 3 years. Wonder how many have NOT been closed! Clearly not a reputable company.

Instacart practices fraudulent billing by not specifying and disclosing charges prior to checkout. They charge an addition amount on your card when ordering and return unused funds 3-4 days later. Membership only buys a reduced Service fee which varies per delivery yet they state Free Member delivery. LIES!

Service fees applies mostly to their Instacart driver background. So what does Membership include? I have not yet received an order that was complete or correct and customer service is useless avoiding known issues.

I am canceling membership as it is worthless.

Desired outcome: My desired outcome is to make others aware of Instacart's unsatisfactory business practices. These reviews should be a lightbulb on social media sites.

Instacart Fraudulent annual membership billing

Recently 12/12/22, I was charged $99 for Instacart's annual membership. This was strange to me as I had used the service a maximum of 3 times, months... possibly years ago (2020) and never signed up for their auto renewal, much less their annual plan. This seems like a fraudulent practice to me as my card details were stored on their app and it appears they want these charges to go under the radar. I have reached out to customer support and have received a refund, makes me wonder why they did it no questions asked. This seems like a massive breach of confidential credit card information. I only hope people check their bank billing and report this fraud of a company.

Desired outcome: Company transparency and an explanation as to why my credit card information was used to fraudulently enroll me in a service I never requested.

Instacart Shopper refused to bring groceries to my door

On 12/20/2022, my wife ordered some groceries from Sam's Club Via Instacart... At 4:39 pm Hawaii time, the Instacart driver named Solomon S. texts my wife and tells her he cant find parking to deliver the groceries... My wife explained to the driver, Solomon, where he could park but he refused, claiming he doesn't want to pay for a parking ticket... The driver Solomon then put the groceries on the pathway to the entrance of the building... He then texts a picture of the groceries left.. (see attached picture).. and then asked my wife if she wants to return the groceries... My wife said no and then went downstairs with her WHEELCHAIR she uses due to a recent surgery... Solomon did put the groceries on the wheelchair but did not even offer to help bring up the groceries... The driver also stated he didn't have a wagon or a cart to bring up the groceries... My wife paid an additional $20.00 in service fees to Instacart to get groceries delivered... We have used Instacart in the past and never had this problem... I choose to post here because I read that dealing directly with Instacart is very difficult...

Desired outcome: Desired outcome at the minimum should be an apology from the driver and or Instacart.

Instacart Shopper

I had an Instacart Shopper use my credit card for unauthorize purchased today around 130pm December 19, 2022!

I made an online order with Harris Teeter who used Instacart. I could not see any of the process in the grocery shopping and thought it was Harris Teeter new app and online service. Strangely, the order was complete with no issue so I thought. Got my order which smells like cigarettes, notice I was missing items. I had my receipt, and notices 2 sandwiches that was additional purchases I did not make. Harris Teeter did not resolve my issues due to having disconnected calls by rude customer service reps. I call Instacart who I believe will sweep this under the rug with all of their out sourcing these days. I will continue to pursue this until justice is serve!

Instacart Error

On December 14, 2022 I placed an order with instacart for my elderly mother who is handicapped and housebound. She was skeptical about using the service as it connected her debit card and she is on a limited income. I entered her EBT information and selected the option to use ebt/snap as the payment method.

Upon checkout, I was prompted to enter her pin to her debit card twice which was unsuccessful but the order was still placed. I shortly received an email confirming her delivery and the entire order was charged to her debit card. I began by responding by email in an attempt to resolve the issue, and reached no resolution. Today, I called and spoke with a representative who informed me that the PIN for the EBT card was never submitted. That is not my ever, that is a technical error with the app, and how was I to know that I was supposed to enter a pin for the EBT card to begin with?

I asked the representative to please speak with a manager and was informed that he was in a meeting and I would receive a call back within 30 minutes to an hour. I never received that call back. It appears as though this is a fraudulent scheme that instacart uses in an attempt to defraud customers and charge their debit cards instead of applying their snap benefits. The problem is that my mother now has no money left in her bank account for the rest of her month and needed it to take a ride to the doctors and back, and now she is unable to do so, and has chronic health issues that need to be addressed. I am outraged that this company could deliver such poor customer service and made no attempt to resolve this issue. Praying on the handicapped and the elderly is not cool at all and I intend on complaining until this issue is addressed. She depended on this service and it was her first time using it and I'm sure she will never want to use it again.

I truly hope that there is someone in this company who has some level of ethics and professionalism and can resolve the problem.

Desired outcome: Compensation

Instacart Instacart (shopper)

I have been a shopper for Instacart since Jan 2022. I had watched a YouTube video about the mileage pay and Instacart and was advised to do the math myself don't trust Instacart's calculations. So i went back and did the math on all of my batches ALL OF THEM. I found over 150.00 i was shorted and immediately contacted support through text because unless your on a batch you can not call instacart. So this process takes anywhere from 20-90 mins. I finally reached someone who promised me a team of experts would fine tooth comb my profile and correct every mistake. I would be notified by email if they needed any further info. This went on for over two weeks every time i am given a shopper bump and told of someway it will be corrected. After 3 weeks i accepted a batch and called support was on the phone for almost two hours and was informed that corrections can only be made in the current pay period. Anything after that can't be opened. I requested to make a formal complaint due to the fact that i was being shorted over 150.00 and once i found the mistake I'm told i can't get the correct pay. Since i discovered the incorrect calculations i have had to check each batch and daily i have to contact support to get paid correctly. I struggle nightly with each agent and their promises of it never happening again.

Desired outcome: to be paid correctly since i started in January

Instacart Grocery store employee training

Order from evening of 12/3/22, Food Lion.

(Problem with order 5 days old—your 4 day policy is brand new to me and I’ve been sick since that night.)

If a store you contract with wants to sell flowers, the employees have got to be to be better educated.

It shouldn’t matter that it was evening (or if I’d ordered incredibly early). All retail employees, as a rule, should be cross trained in every department and lateral duties.

My shopper, who is one of my favorites because she’s unfailingly diligent and committed to finding exactly what you ordered, and if it’s not available, does all she can to find a replacement you feel happy about. She’s clearly invested in the satisfaction of her customers.

She tried to ask numerous employees at Food Lion about an item I’d ordered in quantity of 2. She asked every employee she could find if the paper white bulbs would bloom again —- not one person knew anything about these popular December&January flowers.

I definitely understand why she thought surely they must because Food Lion actually chose to keep the dead flowers as a display in the store. Again, none of this is my shopper’s fault.

But no, paper whites DO NOT bloom again. They can offer an extended blooming period if the bulbs are of good quality and if one cares for them properly.

So I got two dead paper whites I had planned to give to my mom. Again, these are not perennial bulbs so they will not come back next year. I’m requesting a refund for those two items, to be credited to my card ending in 3804.

HUGELY DISAPPOINTED!

Desired outcome: Please refund my card ending in 3804

Instacart Product and service

I ordered my grocery order last night 12-02-2022 to be delivered today 12-03-2022 between 10:00 am -12:00pm. Part of my order was delivered by the driver Nicholas, he checked out at 10:28 am delivered my order at 11:55am, five miles away. I should have checked for all items in bag, as I was charged for Food Lion frozen orange juices, 1 Kraft single slice cheese that were not in my order. He put a bag with a loaf of bread on top of my cart, I ask him what's this for, he said it's your bread, I told him I didn't order any bread, he checked his phone and said ooh-ooh. I called Instacart, told the girl I spoke with that I had items missing, her response, I'll refund these items and take the delivery charge off your next order. If this was a one time thing would be one thing BUT, it happens with 9 out of 10 orders! This is SHAMEFUL way to run a business and a discourtesy to the customers. I have to use this service as I'm 75 years old legally blind and disabled, my only transportation is the City Bus, or a Taxi. I'm on a fixed income, and can't afford $20.00 round trip to and back from the grocery store, I can't hardly walk and have to use a cane just to get around. Instacart, hires people that have no respect for the customers or the company apparently. Something has got to be done!

Desired outcome: Hire people that will do the job right, check the orders making sure EVERYTHING ORDERED and paid for are IN THE BAGS! Train them RIGHT!
