Instacart Delivery service

I paid for professional and efficient delivery service with instacart and I have not received this. I have had multiple complaints using this service and I feel I have wasted my time and money using this terrible unprofessional service. This company is a fraud, it only takes money from it's customer and provides terrible service. Instacart is a rip off and should be closed down.

Desired outcome: Reimburse all my membership payment.

Instacart Celebrity ads

I am NOT a fan of the new management bringing in the nonsense celebrity ads with Lizzo and Pink. Just WHY? It makes me NOT want to use this service anymore and I have used it for over two full years now with tons of orders...if this company goes woke or full liberal policy tactics, I am OUT!

JUST offer the service that it was intended and serve the real people at home who can't get to the grocery store and stop all the dumb tactics of selling so called "celebrity" Thanksgiving Grocery lists. I do NOT want to COPY what PINK has in her cart, thank you very much. How ridiculous is this company going to get? Stop it now before you lose a HUGE customer base. Thank you!

Desired outcome: ZERO Celebrity ads... LOSE all the dumb idea makers in your marketing dept. Just offer savings, discounts, specials, etc.... we are in a downward spiral economy! We don't want to pay for your selling tactics.

Instacart Never received my order

I placed an order today 11/22 at 6:52 AM, and my estimated time of delivery was supposed to be between 10-11 AM. At 10:55 AM I received an alert my order was delivered. When I went to check nothing was there. So I went to open the chat and the shopper put that he “accidentally” marked the order delivered, but he had my info and would be here shortly. After two hours passed, I contacted instacart for assistance. I was told via chat that they would put in for my order to be redelivered within 5 hours and they would give me a $10 credit for the inconvenience. So after 30 minutes I checked my account to see if the new order was sent or updated and there was no record of a new order or a credit. So this time I called, the first rep I spoke to was clueless and told me he had to transfer me to the escalation team to handle this issue. So I was transferred to a literal waste of breath who told me that it was not possible for me to receive redelivery. My only option was a credit or refund and it would take up to 48 hours to receive. At this point I’m absolutely livid because no one ever emailed me, contacted me to tell me the order was never submitted. Furthermore, it’s two days before Thanksgiving and I purchased the order with more than enough time to receive it. Lastly they’re holding my money hostage after the shopper literally stole my groceries. So after voicing my concerns the agent continued to speak from his script instead of actually addressing my concerns. So I requested to speak to a supervisor. He told me the supervisor was going to say exactly what he was saying, I said that’s fine, I still want to speak to someone else, because this isn’t being properly addressed. He refused to transfer me and I asked for his name, at which time he told me have a good day and hung up. This is outrageous! It’s literally two days before thanksgiving and these thieves have my money AND groceries and I’m scrambling trying to figure out what to do. I will never use this company again!

Desired outcome: I want my money back

Instacart Instacart's deceptive billing practices

My bill was $77.95 but ended up only being $70.77. They put both of these as a hold on my account and said it could take up to 7 days for the funds to be released. They said this is normal and they always do this. It caused my account to go negative and I don't have access to these funds. What if I didn't have money I could transfer to cover this? 2 days before Thanksgiving to boot!

Desired outcome: Give me the option. If i click this box then I can't have anything replaced that cost more and I can't add to it. Check this box if we can hold double the amount and you can add to the order or swap it out for something more expensive.

Check your bank account for the refunds! They have stolen over $100 dollars from my mother, instacart reps always say they will refund the money but they never do! I am currently working on submitting my own complaint! It is outrageous how they don’t support they consumer that make their company run. 98% MALE shoppers buy about to expire veggies ( if they pick the right one) and they usually opt for REFUND rather than look for the item for a replacement. INSTACART needs to acknowledge the consumers complaints.

Instacart Fraud

To Whom it May Concern:

Today I visited my credit card company to pay my bill. Upon reviewing my transactions, I noticed an amount on 11.15 for $201.25 to Instacart. This amount was used with the Instacart associated email at XXXX.

On Nov 15th I received an email from Instacart stating the account address had been changed-which I did not do. I have TWO Instacart accounts and I do not use the one associated with XXXX anymore. I tried to log in and could not so I submitted a password reset and the email never came to me, therefore I could not change it. I did not think I still had my credit card on file with this account and when this happened I was at work.

Fast forward to today and the issue with the transaction on my credit card. Again, I tried to reset my password and email would not come to me-obviously the person who hacked into the account not only changed the address but the email associated with the account for correspondence. I quickly called my credit card company and filed a dispute and the card was inactivated.

I tried to contact Instacart for assistance but since I could not log in, I could not do anything on the account XXXX. Coincidentally, I had just placed an order on my active account XXXX and was able to enter a chat and tell the rep what happened. The rep told me to go into the account, change my password and then delete the account. I CANNOT DO THAT BECAUSE SOMEONE CHANGED THE INFORMATION AND THE OPTION TO CHANGE MY PASSWORD DOES NOT EXIST; THE EMAILS DO NOT COME TO ME! Check! What is the email associated? It's not mine. What is the address associated? It's not mine. What was the last order created? It's not mine. If the address is not in XXXX, then IT IS NOT ME. If the address is not XXXX IT IS NOT ME.

After getting NO WHERE with the rep she disconnected the chat while we were still actively communicating. I am SO upset.

Your company needs to take action immediately. You need to refund the amount of $201.25 to my credit card (ending XXXX) and delete this account immediately. Your rep did nothing to help me. Imagine if YOU were in this situation?

I am filing a formal complaint against your company and my credit card is doing the same. Instacart should take fraud seriously and do the right thing and HELP THE CUSTOMER.

XXXX

Desired outcome: refund of $201.25

Hi, Instacart refunded the money. It was a circus for awhile trying to get into my account. I actually deleted my account and will not do business with them anymore. I did file a complaint against the person in Colorado since I had their information but nothing came of that.

I would contact your bank and CC company too just to have further piece of mind that it will be taken care of!

Best of luck!

Instacart All monies refunded.

Instacart automatically renewed my membership, even though i had canceled it in August. I contacted them October 20, 2022 to cancel my membership yet again. The agent made it extremely difficult to cancel. He continuously attempted to sell me the product after I made it very clear several times I was not interested and wanted to cancel. I have screenshots of the entire conversation.

Today, I was billed by Instacart yet again. I had to contact them for the third time to cancel my account. I have screenshots of this conversation as well.

They are intentionally autorenemwin my canceled membership each month, even though they have assured me this would not happen again.

The first 9 screenshots are from me canceling my membership in October. The rest are from today.

Desired outcome: I want my account canceled and never want them to contact or bill me again

Instacart Customer service/funds hold

On November 6th, I made an instacart order. While the shopper was shopping my order, she informed me that the power had went out and she wanted to know if I wanted the order canceled. I asked her if she knew how long the power would be out, she said they had told her less than an hour. I told her that I did NOT want my order cancelled. She said ok I will get back to you when the power comes on, and literally 10 seconds later, she cancelled the order. I had that pending charge on my account and no extra money in the bank so my children went to bed hungry that night, because I had no way to go and get groceries. Fast forward to November 12th. I had a $15 coupon that was set to expire on the 13th, so I made a Sam's Club order to be delivered the next day (so that I would get the $2 off coupon)...my order was set to arrive between 4-6pm. At 4:30 pm I got an alert that said my shopper had started my order. I always keep my phone near me while someone is shopping for me, in case they have any questions. Shortly after they checked in at the store, my order was cancelled. I started a text chat with an instacart associate. They had indicated that the shopper had a personal emergency and that they could UNCANCEL my order and give it to someone else. I was in dire need of groceries for my family so I asked them to uncancel the order and they gave me a $10 credit for my next order for the inconvenience. At 4:45 I hadn't received a check in yet for the new shopper, and I checked the app and my order was not being shopped. I went to my bank account to see what my balance was because I had to figure out how to again feed my children for that night, and I see that my bank account is OVERDRAWN. It's overdrawn because instacart decided when they uncancelled the order that they cancelled, to again put a pending charge of $70 on my account to cover the purchase at Sams Club which was to be approximately $63.00 give or take a few bucks. So now not only do I not have my Sam's Club order or anyone shopping it, I am overdrawn in my bank account and no way to get groceries for my family that night. I then Called instacart customer service. I get a woman on the phone that I can barely understand. She gives me a completely different story than the first agent did, and claims that there was a system down issue and the shopper couldn't complete my order. I explain to her that with speaking to an agent before her I was told different. I was tired of getting the run around with her and told her that I wanted both of the pending charges refunded to me, that I had spent the whole afternoon dealing with Instacart agents and getting nowhere. She refused to cancel the order, so I asked to speak with a supervisor. I was put on hold for about 15 minutes and another gentleman came on the line and he was also hard to understand. He informed me that he had already expedited my order to an agent who was going to follow the shopper from start to finish and that I would have my order by 7pm guaranteed(yes his words). He then assured me that the one of the $70 pending holds would be released, and that it would be back into my bank account first thing Monday Morning. And he used the word "guranteed" again. I said fine, and hung up. At this point it was about 5:30. At approximately 6:15 pm I was notified that the shopper was shopping my order. At 6:30 I was notified that my total was $91.78! And then instacart puts a $21.98 pending charge in my bank account that was already in the red because of you guys! So at this point Instacart is holding $161.98! And I still HAVEN'T FED MY FAMILY DINNER! This shopper didn't indicate that anything was more expensive, or that they had to substitute any items, so why in gods name was my total over $91 when I made the order the day before and with delivery charges and everything it was only approximately $65?! ALSO LETS NOT FORGET THAT MY ORDER WAS GUARANTEED TO GET TO ME BY 7PM.

So it's now 7:15 and my order isn't here, I check the status of the driver and he's still many miles out. Turns out for some reason he went to a Sams Club that was over 67 miles away when we have a Sams Club that is about 30 miles from my home. So I again get on instacart chat with an agent. I ask them why the charge is so much. They had no answer, so I started checking things. Apparently that $15 coupon was not applied. I asked the agent why. They first indicate that the coupon was expired. However it expired the day that my items were supposed to be delivered, and I used it in the transaction that I made on the 12th, that on the 13th y'all CANCELLED and then UNCANCELLED. The agent then proceeded to say that it was not transferrable so I've lost the ability to use that coupon because it was used in the cancelled order. I DIDN'T CANCEL THE ORDER, INSTACART AND THEIR SHOPPER CANCELLED THE ORDER. I then told the agent, look I want this order cancelled, I want ALL OF MY MONEY RELEASED, and that I was done spending my whole night dealing with this. He said that the driver was already on their way and that they were not going to cancel the order(I checked and the shopper was still 43 miles from my home). I again reiterated that I wanted my funds released and that I did not want any delivery from Instacart. They refused, so I asked to speak with a supervisor AGAIN...and theyre response was, they're going to tell you the same thing I'm telling you...would it appease you if I gave you a $15 credit? I didn't respond and closed out of the app.

So not only was my order late, the driver thought it would be funny to put a box full of about 50 lbs of meat right up against my front screen porch door, so I couldn't get out to bring the groceries in. In doing some more research instacart charged me extra for the UNCANCELLED ORDER, in delivery and service fees without my knowledge.

AND THE KICKER?!?!?! IT'S CURRENTLY 9:43 AM CST ON TUESDAY AND I STILL DON'T HAVE ANY FUNDS RELEASED FROM INSTACART!

I am asking for a complete refund, of ALL money. This was hands down the worst customer service experience I've had and I'm 43 years old. It's unacceptable to run a business like this, and I don't know about anyone else but I can't afford this kind of crap!

Kim Lannoye

Desired outcome: I want a refund. A full refund of all monies they are currently holding.

Instacart Refund for 2 memberships since cancelled

I have for months given Instacart many chances to fix my problems to no avail I am at a loss to how a large company can just keep stealing from me n refuse to cancel my membership so they keep double charging me every month for a membership I haven't used since March of last year. I cancelled my Instacart membership in as pril when I quit using as service but instead of cancelling every month this year I was charged twice on my boyfriend's credit card 9.99 membership fees Twice every month. I have not used the service since icancelled. I have spent many hours on phone n live chats been promised supervisor would be in touch. I have gotten no resolution or even attempt s. the care agents all tell me they can't refund my money. 2 memberships since March 8 mos at 20+tx 160 bucks n even worse every time they say it's cancelled like clockwork they charge again1st week n third.. How do I stop them from taking more money from me? This is bank account files will only show 3 monthst at a time but can go all way back but it shows in system they just won't fix it

Instacart Pamela's biscuit and scone mix

Contacted the company 4 times for a refund of this item because their website did not show the warning that is on the package showing the product is processed in a facility that processes Tree nuts, Coconut, Wheat, Eggs, Soy, and dairy. For someone like myself who has multiple life threatening allergies, this is a big problem. This has happened before wi to h other products they carr and I brought it to their attention. I received a refund with no problem. They sent me an email they will no longer issue me refunds cause they feel they are excessive. They are discriminating against my right to request a refund of I have an allergic reaction to one of items I purchase from them.

Desired outcome: They will not refund the 5.49 for the product and will not refund my money in the future.

Instacart Unauthorized charge

I canceled my membership in October. First week in November instacart charged a $99 fee to my debit card. I contacted them via email they did refund The $99 because they were not authorized to charge it however when I was waiting for the refund my rent check went through and bounced and I incurred a $30 fee. I contacted them several times through email, chat and then I called on the phone and spoke with three people and they are insisting that they cannot reimburse me for the $30 fee no one there is authorized to do that. Instacart is BS they do shady practices and charge unauthorized funds and will not own up to their mistakes. It was their error my rent check bounced and I incurred a fee because of their error and they don't have the integrity to do the right thing and reimburse me for it.

Instacart Refund for items I did not order and do not have

Date 11/11/2022, approximate time of delivery 9:25 a.m. I have asked to speak with a manager after 3 different employees today with no resolution. I have been hung up on 3 times now! Each time I asked to speak with a manager or someone in charge. I will never use instacart again. I have no trust after today. I placed an order online. The shopper substituted Jimmy Dean frozen breakfast sandwich's for a 3 lb roll of Kroger hamburger that I had ordered. How is that even a substitute? I stated no substitutions on my order! She took the items back but charged my credit card anyway! She provided no refund. I did not approve of any substitutes, and she did not ask; she took it upon herself to do this. I have kept all texts regarding this order from her. She stated she was sorry, the 2 boxes of Jimmy dean were for another order (but she charged my credit card for them). She bought more items then what I ordered as well. She didn't let me know of anything else that was out of stock except a box of cakes. There were many other items I ordered that were listed out of stock, but 2 items were in stock (I called Kroger and they checked!) I have repeatedly asked for a refund for $32.97 for things I did not order and items she took back. She told me to call Instacart as did Kroger manager for the refund, yet no one has helped in this matter! Instead, on hold for 30+ minutes each time, then disconnected or hung up on, and at end I get asked questions if I was helped survey!

Desired outcome: I want my card refunded $32.97 ASAP for items I did not approve and she kept! I am disabled and on disability limited income, which is why I used this service. I won't again!

Instacart My customer account was blocked for no reason

I have used this service several times at Costco only, my order last week posted an error my account is blocked. Called Costco, they had me call Instacart. Lady on phone said to send the last four of my credit card. I sent that, but they did not tell me they also wanted my full name on the card etc. So sent in another two tries of the photo, they got one they liked. Now they want my drivers license, WA state, uploaded. I can block the license number, but they want my photo, signature, height, weight? For shopping? They will not tell my why my account was flagged. I have a high credit score, this card is high use and from USAA. There are not reasons for this invasive demand of highly personal information. I will also contact Costco management. I have seen articles that Instacart sell/shares customer information. I am not comfortable with this.

Desired outcome: I would like my account unlocked for Costco only, I am injured and that is a bog store. I would also like to know why their security flagged me, when I have great credit and a good card. Never been denied.

Instacart The company as a whole!!

I placed an order at 2:30 with Aldi's. Delivery was set for 4:30 allowing me time to get super ready. I am a semi-invalid and I live solely on my SS income. We didn't have much food in the house the past week or two as I was waiting for my check to arrive. At 4:30 I am informed there is a delay the food would be delivered at 5:30. Then it was 6:30, then it was 7:30 then I was told it would be delivered the next day. They offered me a $10 discount on my $185.00 order. I canceled the order and we had some PB and Jelly sandwiches on stale bagels. This morning I arrange to have someone do some food shopping for me so first I check my bank balance. I see I was charged the $185. I called CS and spoke to a few people who I could not understand their accents at all. This was not an oriental or Latin accent or anything I had ever heard before. It was from Mars. Finally, I was told there was nothing they could do about it I had to wait 7 to 10 days for a refund. I feel bad for anyone that ever has to use this horrendous uncaring POS company!..

Desired outcome: Hope they go out of business

Instacart Instacart is a scam, do not order from here ever!

I ordered groceries at 12 pm today from a store that is only 1.5 miles from my place. I am sick and could not leave home but was heavily relying on this delivery service. After 3.5 hours they told me my shopper who was 80% done collecting my items had a 'technical difficulty' and could not complete my order. I called and insisted to speak to the supervisor who told me the VERY BEST They could do for me is give me 7$ back (my order was 135$) and ensure my order would arrive by 7pm (which was 2 hours after the allotted delivery time) -- even though they guarantee a refund or credit if your order is late. Unacceptable and extremely unprofessional, dishonest behavior... But that isnt the worst of it. At 6:45 pm I received a text that my order was cancelled. No explanation... no options for resolution... just nothing. After waiting 7 hours, talking to the supervisor, being promised my failed order would come at a certain time, it was just cancelled. When I tried to call and speak to the supervisor again, they wouldn't let me. So, they took my money and then performed zero service, wasted my entire day, and just didn't give a [censored] when I tried to voice how unacceptable this was. This is hands down the worst company I have ever ordered from. Please save your peace of mind and time and money and stay the F*** away from this company

Instacart Driver possible trying scope and rob houses claiming working for instacart in Tarzana CA on Friar street Wednesday night approx 9:00 pm

A person in Tarzana Ca on Friar st at approx 9:00 pm on Wednesday 11/2/22 started walking on our property and a neighbor property photographing homes and entrance ways. She took pictures into our open garage door as I exited. It was a woman and I caught her on my property hiding behind my car in driveway as I was exiting my house. She ran onto the property next door and hid in that driveway to wait until I was gone. She then ran to her car and started taking photos very suspicious from her car of only our two houses.

It was a woman. I photographed her lic plate to report suspicious person scoping homes at night and taking pictures very suspicious.

the person rolled down the window rudely asked what I was doing and told her she has no right to enter properties taking pictures, she swore at me said she worked for instacart and drove off.

Her lic plate is: CA plate number 8czl188.

I am going to report this to the police. If this person works for you, I would advise letting me know. Nobody from your company should be taking pictures of properties and trespassing. She was not delivering.

Please contact me or will have to call police.

Instacart Cyril Anthony

I needed to speak to someone with authority because this person could not help me. I have written to 4 other people about this problem and they all gave me the same answer. I will put notes on this. Notes dont do any good. So I keep telling this Cyril to please give me someone higher up. He actually ended my conversation and left it. I made a referral over a month ago and they put her on hold because of too many shoppers. Yet my other friend didnt go through my referral at the same time and got her card right away. So my thought is they dont want to give me the money for the referral. I spoke to instacart, I have pictures of all the conversations that say her card should be on the way. its a month and no card. My number is [protected], please give me a call so that we can get her shopping. My referral is Diane E, My name is Ellen Roche and I am a shopper for years.

Desired outcome: The desired outcome that I want is for this person to get her card so she can shop. SHe filled out everything and is ready to shop but instacart wont let her. Please send her her card so that she can shop and I can get my referral fee.

Instacart Instacart

My wife placed an order, we used EBT and placed the order for over $100 from Publix including two subs and was assigned a shopper. The shopper had instacart send a message that an item, lettuce was out of stock and didn't give us enough time to respond. We received a message saying the order was on the way, the time for delivery came and passed with no order. My wife called customer service and they said the driver was lost, after talking to customer service for sometime was informed that the driver canceled the order with no contact letting us know. So because of his

lack of professionalism food was wasted and and instacart didn't seem to care.

Desired outcome: Jahimer the shopper should be fired because he obliviously doesn't care about doing his job.
