BENTONVILLE, Ark. and SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — After initially joining forces in February, Sam’s Club and Instacart have announced the national expansion of their partnership to offer same-day delivery to more than half of all Sam’s Clubs across the nation by the end of October. Just in time for the holidays Sam’s Club customers can get gifting and small appliances in addition to food and groceries, delivered in as fast as an hour through Instacart.
Sam’s Club grocery delivery via Instacart will be available to nearly 1,000 new zip codes, more than 100 new clubs, and 90 new markets, including New Jersey, Indianapolis, and Houston, among others, by the end of October. Sam’s Club enthusiasts can visit samsclub.com/Instacart to select their items and have them delivered in as little as one hour from nearly 350 clubs by month’s end.
“Our members love this service, so we decided to give the gift of fast, easy home delivery to more members just in time for the holidays,” said Sachin Padwal, Sam’s Club’s vice president of product management. “To help the holidays run smooth, we’re offering a wide product assortment available on Instacart so shoppers can now get household goods delivered. We’re excited that last minute gifts, small appliances, extra pillows and towels – just to name a few things – are just a few clicks and minutes away!”
The news comes following the positive response to Instacart and Sam’s Club’s pilot programs in Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin and St. Louis, as well as recent launches in San Diego and Los Angeles. Instacart customers in the newly expanded markets will have the option to shop Sam’s Club without a membership, giving them access to Sam’s Club’s savings and exclusive items, paired with the convenience of same-day delivery. Sam’s Club members will receive lower, member-only pricing.
“By expanding our partnership with Sam’s Club, we’re extending the reach of Sam’s Club’s amazing products by making grocery shopping effortless for more people across more cities in the U.S.,” said Sarah Mastrorocco, vice president of business development, Instacart. “We’re excited to join forces with Sam’s Club and serve as ‘household heroes’ for customers, delivering them the home essentials and groceries they want from the club they love in as fast as an hour.”
