Chase has quietly rolled out a new benefit for most of its cardholders, which offers a free Instacart Express membership until April 30, 2022. The benefit is available on a long list of Chase credit cards, but cardholders with an existing Instacart membership won’t be able to take advantage of it.
- Chase credit card holders can get a free Instacart Express membership until April 2022.
- The benefit, which is available to most cardholders, is the latest partner perk, joining others like DoorDash, Lyft and Peloton.
- Earlier this year, Chase announced plans to launch a co-branded credit card with the grocery delivery service.
Grocery delivery without charge
Instacart’s grocery delivery service experienced rapid growth during the pandemic. The company’s sales grew 229.7% in 2020, and it now accounts for one in five grocery e-commerce sales in the US. In 2021, however, the company is projected to grow only 11.3%.
In an effort to boost sales, the company has partnered with Chase to offer a free Instacart Express subscription to eligible cardholders.
Instacart Express offers free delivery on grocery orders of $35 or more from local participating stores. Cardholders will have to activate the promotion by January 31, 2022 to take advantage of it. They’ll also get $10 off on their next order of $35 or more.
Once the promotion ends on April 30, 2022, the account will automatically renew to an annual Instacart Express subscription, which costs $99, unless you cancel it before the closing date.
Dozens of Chase credit cards are eligible for the promotion. However, if you had an active Instacart Express subscription on or after September 30, 2021, you cannot get it. You also need to use your eligible Chase card as your payment method, and you cannot take advantage of the same offer on more than one card.
