Sorry for all the capital letters in the title, I guess I’m just a little too excited.

Groceries are a necessity, and shopping at the grocery on a weekly basis can quickly become a chore.

However, what if I told you that someone else would do the shopping for you? In fact, what if I told you that someone else would shop for you AND that you would get ten dollars worth of free groceries?

Frankly, I wouldn’t believe it. But believe it or not, this is a real opportunity. This magical business I just described is called Instacart, and they’re ready to go grocery shopping for all your grocery store needs. I experienced this service firsthand, so you can trust me when I tell you that Instacart is everything you’ve ever dreamed of and more.

First, you order online through either Whole Foods, King Supers, or Costco. Then, the person who shops for you will call you if there’s any complications. Finally, they will come right to your door and deliver you your groceries in their reusable Instacart bags (see above). This entire process happens in a matter of hours, and you can even schedule when you want your food to be dropped off. It’s an incredible service for people without cars, people with an overwhelming itinerary, or simply those of us who are too lazy to go to the grocery!

In order to get your ten dollars of free groceries, simply go to Instacart’s site and enter the code “ABOUT Boulder.”

Guess what? That’s not even everything. Instacart is ALSO GIVING AWAY A FREE YEAR OF INSTACART EXPRESS for Pay-it-Forward Friday! Express is Instacart’s delivery subscription service – Express members get free delivery on all 2-hour or scheduled deliveries over $35. 

In order to enter to win a free year of Instacart Express, simply send an email telling us why you deserve a year of free groceries to We will then choose a random winner to receive this week’s grand prize.

And remember, share this with your friends– I’m sure you’re not the only one who wants ten dollars of free groceries!
