Current Instacart Shopper Referral Code For 2024 [Up To $750]

If you’ve considered applying to Instacart, you’re probably aware that it is a great way to make money on your own schedule by shopping for others’ groceries.

But, did you know that you that you can earn even more money by claiming a sign up bonus by applying an Instacart Shopper referral code at signup?

I’ll show you the best code to use, how to apply it, and explain the conditions to be aware of when doing so.

New Instacart Shopper Promotions
Make at least $450, PLUS tips!

Newly referred Shoppers who complete 30 batches in 30 days as Full-Service Shoppers can earn at least $450 plus tips.

Use the referral code "BRETTH14148" during signup to unlock this bonus.

What is an Instacart Referral Code?

Instacart Shopper referral codes are the code that applicants apply to their account when signing up as an Instacart Shopper.

These codes are provided to existing Instacart shoppers as a way to incentivize them to refer friends and family to the platform.

When a new shopper signs up using a referral code, they can earn up to $450 if they complete 30 batches (orders) within their first 30 days.

The codes are two-way incentives for both the new shopper, as well as the referring one. That means the person referring the new shopper also receives a bonus, typically between $100-$400.

Note: The referral bonus structure and payout specifics can vary by region, and promotions are subject to change.

How to Claim an Instacart Shopper Referral Bonus

Claiming the bonus is actually very simple. All you need to do is add the code to the account during the signup process, and then proceed with the application.

Once you’re approved to Shop with Instacart, you will get a notification, and your 30 day window to complete the appropriate amount of batches begins.

After you successfully hit your batch number, you will get a notification within the Instacart Shopper app letting you know.

After that, you should see the payout in the either that week’s payments, or sometimes the following week’s.

If you don’t see the payout right away, give it a week or two before reaching out to support.

In my experience, Instacart is really good at tracking the bonuses, so it will likely come eventually with a little patience.

Tips for Meeting the Batch Requirements

I see a lot of new Shoppers get excited about these bonuses yet consistently fail to earn them successfully. Usually, this has to do with not completing enough batches.

Here are a few simple tips to keep in mind before rushing out to claim an Instacart Shopper sign-up bonus:

1. Plan Ahead

The 30-day timer starts as soon as you sign up, so any delays in starting work can eat into your available time.

Gather all necessary documents, such as your driver’s license, insurance, and any other identification required for the ID and background check, before signing up.

Make sure your vehicle is in good condition and ready for deliveries.

2. Choose Optimal Times to Shop

Peak hours generally see higher order volumes, increasing your chances of getting more batches.

Identify and work during busy times, such as evenings after work hours, weekends, and during holidays. Use the app’s insights or online forums to identify the busiest times in your area.

3. Focus on Smaller Batches

Smaller batches are quicker to shop for and deliver, allowing you to complete more batches in less time.

Prioritize batches with fewer items and shorter delivery distances. These batches can be completed faster, allowing you to move on to the next batch quickly.

4. Choose Locations Strategically

Being near stores with high order volumes reduces travel time and increases your chances of getting assigned batches.

Position yourself near popular supermarkets, grocery stores, and high-traffic retail areas. Stay updated on where the busiest stores are in your area.

5. Minimize Downtime

Reducing travel time between stores increases your efficiency and the number of batches you can complete.

Choose locations with multiple stores in close proximity. This way, if one store is slow, you can quickly move to another nearby store to pick up more batches.

6. Avoid Multi-Store Batches

Multi-store batches take more time and are more complex, reducing the number of batches you can complete.

Decline batches that require shopping at multiple stores or for multiple customers simultaneously. Focus on single-store, single-customer orders.

7. Monitor Promotions

Additional promotions can provide extra incentives and help you reach your goals faster.

Stay updated on any new promotions or bonuses offered by Instacart. Check the app regularly, follow Instacart on social media, or join online forums and communities for the latest updates.

How to Share an Instacart Shopper Referral Code [As an Existing Shopper]

Once you are approved to shop, you can then refer people to shop with Instacart and claim a bonus – just like you did while unlocking a bonus of your own above.

The conditions are pretty much the same. For example, within my Instacart Shopper app, I can see that Instacart is currently offering me $150 if I refer shoppers using my referral code.

It then gives the referred applicant the ability to make a guaranteed earnings amount of $450 when they complete 30 batches in 30 days.

I highly suggest existing Shoppers refer other applicants once they are approved and can do so.

It is a great way to make another stream of income that goes above and beyond simply shopping and earning that way.
