If you're a Hilton Honors member, you'll want to check your email for a promotion to get bonus points on an Instacart membership or purchase.
What is Instacart?
Instacart is an online shopping service that allows you to get groceries and products from over 300 retailers and local grocers across the US and Canada. You can get your deliveries in as little as an hour (for a premium), or schedule the delivery for later in the week. Instacart also allows you to shop at club stores like Costco and Sam's Club without your own membership.
Instacart Express is the membership program for frequent Instacart buyers. The benefits of the annual membership include no delivery fees on orders over $35, reduced service fees, no busy pricing fees during peak delivery hours, and getting to stop at a variety of stores with no delivery fee on the whole order (usually, you have to spend $35 at each retailer to get free delivery). You can get an annual membership for $99 per year — or a monthly membership for $9.99 per month.
Bonus Hilton Honors Points from Instacart Promotions
You can either get 10,000 Hilton Honors points for joining Instacart Express. Or, if you've never used Instacart before, you can get 2,500 points for your first order. However, you'll need the email to apply, and you only have until July 15, 2021.
10,000 Bonus Points for Annual Membership Promotion
The first bonus is to get 10,000 bonus points when you sign up for a new Instacart Express annual membership for $99. Based on recent AwardWallet user redemptions, 10,000 Hilton Honors points are valued at $64. So, this promotion is tantamount to getting two-thirds off your first year of Instacart Express in the form of Hilton Honors points.
2,500 Bonus Points on Your First Order Promotion
If you don't want to get the annual membership, you can still get bonus Hilton Honors points with Instacart. Get 2,500 Hilton Honors bonus points after your first purchase with Instacart. Based on recent redemptions, that's a $16 value — which might or might not make a big difference depending on how much you spend on your first order.
Just note that you have to spend at least $35 on your order to get the low $3.99 delivery fee without a membership (delivery is free on orders above $35 with a membership).

Stack With Amex Offers
If you're considering signing up for an Instacart Express membership, make sure to check your Amex Offers first. There's currently an offer to get $29 back when you spend $29+ in one or more transactions.
After enrolling in this Amex Offer, sign up for an annual Instacart membership through the Hilton offer to get both $29 cash back plus 10,000 bonus Hilton points.
Shoppers who may have never considered grocery delivery before the pandemic have now been introduced to the concept in the past year. Now, it seems Instacart wants to continue growing its user base with a new Hilton promotion.
I don't know if Instacart is a service I would use myself, mostly because I like to choose my own food and products. But if you're looking for bonus points, this might be a good way to get some — at least with the single purchase promotion.
Whether or not you use Instacart, don't forget to use the right credit card for groceries and supermarkets. Make sure you link your card to your account before applying for this promotion.
