Instacart has launched a new nationwide partnership with Best Buy to offer same-day delivery from nearly all Best Buy locations across the United States.
This means that customers nationwide now have access to a selection of Minneapolis-based Best Buy’s electronics and tech products delivered the same day, including laptops, TVs, home office essentials, headphones, tablets, gaming, smartwatches, streaming media players and small appliances.
“This year, we've expanded our offering with new and existing partners in order to provide even more selection and value to customers. 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,” said Chris Rogers, VP of retail at San Francisco-based Instacart. “We’re proud to partner with Best Buy – the largest consumer electronics retailer in the U.S. – to offer customers across the country a new way to get the technology products they need delivered same-day. Whether it’s a new computer monitor for a home office, a smartwatch to track activity or a new slow cooker for the kitchen, we want to provide more ways for people to get the goods they need as quickly and safely as possible.”
With the nationwide Best Buy launch, Instacart is also introducing the Certified Delivery feature. The new feature gives customers access to a larger selection of high-value items not previously available for same-day delivery via Instacart, such as top-quality wireless and noise-canceling headphones, wearable technology, and smart home devices.
Certified Delivery is designed to give customers and shoppers alike an easier way to track and confirm the delivery and receipt of orders with high-value products. With Certified Delivery orders, Best Buy customers are required to acknowledge that they’ve received valuable items in their order by signing for them upon delivery directly in the Instacart app -- ensuring a seamless hand-off from the store to their door.
Customers across the United States can now shop from hundreds of Best Buy products online or by downloading the Instacart app on their mobile device. Once on the Instacart marketplace, customers then enter their ZIP code, select Best Buy’s storefront and 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.
