Instacart and Uber Eats partnered to provide restaurant delivery powered by Uber Eats to eligible customers. This feature is only available in-app at this time.

You can find more information about restaurant orders powered by Uber Eats in our help center.

First restaurant order promotion

Instacart customers may receive $5 off their first restaurant order of $35 or more through the Instacart app (Instacart+ members may receive $10 off if they are an active member when they receive the promotion). This is a limited time offer.

Grocery promotion

Eligible customers could also receive the following when they spend $100 or more on non-restaurant orders—

  • Non-Instacart+ members get a $5 coupon for restaurant orders via the Instacart app.
  • Instacart+ members get a $10 coupon for restaurant orders via the Instacart app and the continued Instacart+ benefit of $0 delivery fee on eligible orders of $35 or more.

You’re only eligible for this offer if you see the offer banner before placing an eligible non-restaurant order.

You must manually activate the offer by tapping on it. You’ll see an offer banner on the Instacart homepage or receive a push notification. Tap on the banner or notification to redeem.

Coupon eligibility is based on the final total amount after delivery before any taxes, tips or fees. If your order total is less than $100 because of replacements, out-of-stock items, etc., your order isn’t eligible for the coupon.

Once redeemed and you meet the order requirements, you’ll receive the promotion. It applies automatically at checkout on your next restaurant order of $35 or more via the Instacart app, subject to additional terms. 

The discount applies to the total purchase price for all items in your order, and excludes tips, taxes, service and other fees.

This is a limited time offer. For more information on the terms and conditions of this offer, go here.

Note: You can only use these coupons, and Uber Cash given through the restaurant experience on Instacart powered by Uber Eats, for restaurant orders placed via the Instacart app. Any promotions and Uber Cash through Uber Eats outside the Instacart app aren’t accepted.

Discount expiration

The discount expires. You can see the details of your individual offer in the Credits, promos, and gift cards section of your Instacart account once redeemed.

Payment for Restaurant Orders

Uber processes payments for the Instacart restaurant experience powered by Uber Eats. Apple Pay and Google Pay are accepted as a payment method. You may need to submit a new payment method during checkout, even if you have an active payment method on the Instacart app.

If you update or add a new payment method for a restaurant order, it only applies to that order and not your grocery orders. 

Instacart appeasements, credit back credits, gift cards, credit card pay with points integrations (e.g., Chase Pay with Points), EBT card via Instacart are not accepted for restaurant orders. Statement credits offered by credit card providers (e.g., Chase) or payment networks (e.g., Mastercard) are not available for restaurant orders placed via Instacart.

Instacart Mastercard - 2% cash back on Restaurants

You will earn 2% cash back on restaurant purchases powered by Uber Eats as you do on all other purchases at restaurants including takeout and eligible delivery services with your Instacart Mastercard®. You will continue to earn 5% cash back on other Instacart app and purchases. 

You also still have the ability to use points at checkout on grocery orders. You will be unable to Pay with Points or use Instacart Credits towards restaurant purchases powered by Uber Eats.
