Instacart 'Tis a Big Deal Week
Instacart is running a weeklong holiday promotion.

Instacart is teaming up with some big names in diverse retail verticals to target last-minute holiday shoppers.

The grocery technology company is hosting its first-ever “Tis a Big Deal Week” promotion, which features seven days of discounts up to 40% off from participating retailers including Best Buy, Petco and more from Sunday, Dec. 17 through Saturday, Dec. 23. 

Beginning Dec. 17, customers can visit Instacart’s homepage within the Instacart app or visit the Instacart website, and then select the Deals Week tab. Participating retailers offering $20 off orders of $50 or more on select products are Bath & Body Works, Best Buy, The Body Shop, The Container Store, Kiehl’s, Lowe’s. Michaels and Petco.

“Instacart helps grocery retailers and beyond cater to spontaneous and time-pressed customers seeking same-day solutions for their gifting needs.,” the company said in a corporate blog post. “Whether you’re hoping to ‘skip the ship’ and need something promptly delivered to you or sent as a thoughtful gift to a loved one living afar, Instacart and more than 1,400 of its retail brands have you covered. From premium skincare to creative supplies, and festive beverages to athletic gear, Instacart has it all. Happy holidays and happy shopping.” 

In other preparation for the holidays, Instacart also recently introduced several new FoodStorm features developed to help grocers manage high holiday order volumes in their stores. The company is adding new capabilities to FoodStorm, the order management system (OMS) it purchased in October 2021, designed to help store associates manage pickup orders, monitor payment statuses, and accurately handle items sold by weight, such as Thanksgiving turkeys, Hanukkah briskets or Christmas hams.

FoodStorm also now enables store associates to obtain access to customer order information by scanning a barcode, which instantly displays the corresponding order on a mobile device. In addition, customers have the option to settle their bills upon pickup.

Headquartered in San Francisco, Instacart partners with more than 1,400 national, regional and local retail banners to facilitate online shopping, delivery and pickup services from more than 80,000 stores across North America on the Instacart Marketplace.
