      Pros

      Flexible hours. I love to grocery shop, so it's fun for me. You get to know the stores in your area really well so you can improve on your accuracy and speed. It provides a great service to people who can't always get out to do their own grocery shopping. most of it is a no-contact delivery, so you don't see people very often. When I do see the people I deliver to, they are always very nice and appreciative. I wasn't really expecting to make a lot of money doing this, but I can actually make $100 or more in a day just when I'm doing it part-time in the evenings or on weekends. That's decent extra money to have. I just put it away and save it. It's also a great workout, especially if you get heavy batches. If you do a full day of Instacart, it can really wipe you out, but you're getting some good exercise in. Anytime I have had an issue with anything related to Instacart, I've called their helpline and they are super responsive and very friendly people.

      Cons

      Sometimes the batches disappear quickly or there might not be many to choose from. Some of the batches that pop up on my app are 20 or 30 mi away from home, so that is not something I'm able to do. For the most part, the batch earnings are fair, but there are times where the tip is very low. I have seen a few that are a no tip. I don't really go after those batches because if we're providing that service I feel they should tip. The app can also be glitchy at times, but for the most part if you shut it down and open it back up it works fine. I would like to see some perks or bonuses for shoppers who do consistently well.
