...That is 1277% markup BEFORE factoring in the Service Fee, the Delivery Fee, and the suggested Tip. They also charge Taxes on the "service" which you would not pay in Pennsylvania in store. Really wish I was aware of what a bad deal it is for the customer before using the service...

...This company definitely need to retrain their staff. Instacart is a scam. IMMEDIATELY CONTACT YOUR BANK IF YOU SEE ANY SUSPENCIOUS CHARGES FROM INSTACART..


Got none of what I ordered. Got something I hate and can't eat. No way to talk to Postmates. They only gave me a credit which means I have to use them again another day, and probably have my lunch and my afternoon ruined again by their incompetance.
