Best Buy is partnering with Instacart to offer same-day delivery from nearly all its stores across the U.S. Through the new partnership, customers can access a selection of Best Buy’s electronics and tech products for same-day delivery, including select laptops, TVs, home office essentials, headphones, tablets, gaming, smart watches, streaming media players, small appliances and more.
Customers can shop from hundreds of Best Buy products at Instacart.com/best-buy or by downloading the Instacart app on their mobile device. Once on the Instacart marketplace, customers enter their zip code, select Best Buy’s storefront and they can begin adding technology products to their digital cart. After checkout, an Instacart shopper will deliver the order within the customer’s designated time frame — whether they choose to receive it the same day or schedule their delivery in advance.
“This year we’ve expanded our offering with new and existing partners in order to provide even more selection and value to customers,” said Chris Rogers, VP of Retail at Instacart in a statement. “As people settle into remote work and distance learning routines, we’ve seen increased demand for the same-day delivery of electronics on our marketplace.”.
As part of the new partnership with Best Buy, Instacart also is introducing a new Certified Delivery feature that gives customers access to a broader selection of high-value items not previously available for same-day delivery. Designed to create a more seamless handoff experience, Certified Delivery tracks and confirms the delivery and receipt of orders with high-value products in both the customer and Instacart Shopper apps. Best Buy customers with Certified Delivery orders will need to be home for their delivery and to sign for their items in the Instacart app once they’ve received them. Instacart plans to roll out the new feature with additional retailers in the coming months.
