Are prices of groceries same as in the store? Or is it marked up?

Too bad its increased prices versus warehouse rather than adding just a flat fee to delivery but I guess that is the Instacart way. Good news if you're in a pinch though.

Also, they don't cover my area of Brooklyn. I'm smack dab between two warehouses.

Not really. Not sure why would you compare food chains to Costco. Costco is neccesity for people. All the others could easily fit into Wants instead of Needs.

Used to like Instacart until they stopped allowing sales of the Rotisserie chickens (presumably because they weren't marked up enough.)

yup everything is 30-50% more than in the store which defeats the purpose of shopping at Costco... Might as well use Safeway delivery that charges the same prices as in store

While this isn't super great, as someone without a car I am getting tired of walking down to the grocery store in December, I can easily make a cart of 35 bucks from deli / bakery / vegi items and come out pretty ok with this, with the occasional google express and boxed promos filling out the pantry items.

Could be better, but still fits my needs well enough.

wow 30 to 50% that's high

safeway can you elaborate on that, how's their service.

so this instcar is expensive but is the service good? do they really have people that can pick good fruit, vegetable etc for you?

I've noticed a lot of the prices are marked up, some quite significantly. Of course, Instacart does this markup for Whole Foods as well. (And Safeway does this for their grocery deliveries, too -- unless it's on sale, then they match whatever is in their flyer)

For non-perishable groceries, I've found Google Express has prices that actually match the in-store prices for all the items I've checked so far, though they do tend to have problems with delays and packaging (squished, broken, or burst items) in my experience. They're always happy to fix & send a new one in a couple of days.

Addendum: regarding Safeway, I've compared prices in store with online, and most items (I'd say 90%) were more expensive online than in the store. The only exceptions were items on sale in their flyer, milk & yogurt, and one other item I forget that was 1 cent less expensive online. But everything else was more expensive, from tortillas (just a few cents more expensive) to nuts (several dollars more expensive).
