If you're a fan of grocery delivery and have a Chase credit card, we have good news for you. Chase recently launched the Instacart Mastercard. Now, more cardholders are gaining additional Instacart perks.

In June, we announced that eligible Chase cardholders can activate a complimentary Instacart+ membership, which reduces your service fees and waives the delivery fee on grocery orders of $35 or more. You can also receive a discount of 5% on all pickup orders.

Now, as of today, eligible cardholders can also get up to $15 Instacart statement credits monthly — but it does depend on which Chase card you have.

Monthly statement credits for Instacart purchases

Starting Aug. 1, 2022, eligible Chase cardholders can receive monthly statement credits after making Instacart purchases. This benefit is in addition to the Instacart+ membership detailed below, meaning you can place orders with waived delivery fees and also receive a rebate on these orders.

How to receive the statement credits

The statement credits are only available after activating your Instacart+ membership. After enrollment, make purchases from Instacart using your eligible credit card.

The amounts listed above are maximums and will be issued as statement credits. This means you will pay first and then receive a credit toward your credit card statement afterward. It's not a discount applied at the time of payment, so don't be surprised if you don't see these credits reflected during checkout with Instacart.

Chase cards eligible for a complimentary Instacart+ membership

Those who enroll will enjoy Instacart+ privileges for 3-12 months, depending on which card they have. This membership typically costs $99 annually, so this is a great way to test out the Instacart membership for free and save big on grocery deliveries
Not all Chase cardholders can avail this perk. However, if you have any of the following credit cards, you can enroll. This benefit started on June 15, 2022, and it runs through July 31, 2024.

How to activate

To activate this Instacart Express membership offer, visit Instacart’s website and use your eligible Chase credit card as the payment method when claiming the offer. You must activate this benefit by July 31, 2024, and you’ll enjoy Instacart Express privileges for 3-12 months, depending on your card. After that period, your complimentary membership will automatically convert to the annual plan ($99/year), so be sure to set a calendar reminder if you plan to cancel at the end of your trial.

Eligible customers can redeem the complimentary Instacart+ membership even if they had an Instacart+ or Instacart Express membership previously.

The last time this promotion was offered was in January 2022. Back then, co-branded Chase cards such as Marriott Bonvoy, Southwest and United Airlines cards were eligible. Unfortunately, they aren’t this time around.

Bottom line

Receiving free grocery delivery is a nice perk. These offers come as Chase and Instacart have launched the first-ever credit card geared toward grocery delivery fans: the Instacart Mastercard.

If you're looking for more ways to receive free grocery delivery, remember that monthly Uber credits can be used for Uber Eats and multiple Chase credit cards offer Gopuff credits each month. You can also receive complimentary Walmart+ membership, which you can use for waived delivery fees.

Paired with up to $120 in Uber Cash (for U.S. Uber rides or Uber Eats orders) and up to $120 in annual dining statement credits at eligible partners, there's no reason that the foodie shouldn't add this card to their wallet. Enrollment required.
