Instacart Express Membership gift card

Instacart Express membership provides your recipient with free delivery and reduced service fees on qualifying orders. An Instacart Express Membership gift card can only be used for redeeming an Instacart Express membership. It can’t be used at checkout for items, tips, taxes, or to cover all fees. 

If you would like to send an Instacart Express Membership gift card, you can select from the following options—

  • 3 months - $29
  • 6 months - $59
  • 1 year - $99

Note: If the recipient of an Instacart Express Membership gift card doesn’t already have an Express membership, the membership will not auto-renew once the gift card membership ends. 

If they had an Express account before receiving the gift card and have the auto-renew feature on, their plan will auto-renew as normal. The gift card amount will be added to their existing membership term.
