i have used instacart multiple times without a problem. the shoppers have been wonderful.
instacart/publix adds a service fee (which is curiously always equal to the suggested tip amount) plus, all items are higher priced than in store. i think that there should be either a service fee or higher priced items, but not both. i used the service anyway because it was convenient.
earlier, when checking out, there was a new line item called heavy order fee. that did it...i refuse to pay, i think its redundant.
heavy order fee is explained on the site as: the fee helps cover operational costs and is added because your order includes the heavy items listed below...
all of my previous orders contained heavy items, which is why i use the service in the first place.
i do understand that we must pay for services rendered, but this is just ridiculous. im done!
