I've gotten a few questions recently about signing up for Instacart hours, then driving for Uber and Lyft during those hours when you're getting no deliveries.

In theory, this strategy sounds great. However, courier be warned. If you are signed up for Instacart hours then take a trip that takes you outside the Instacart delivery zone, you could be penalized.

Do Instacart when you sign up to do Instacart, and do rideshare driving during other times. Don't make the mistake of trying to do them both. It's just not worth it.

What City & State do you work in?

Good point. Drivers need to realize if you commit to something with IC - they expect you to stick to it. And if you don't, you'll be penalized. So, don't do it!
