Chase and Instacart will offer customers the security and convenience of making payments for products online and strategically ensure that customers stay shopping by rolling out bonuses. More than 260 million Americans shop online. Instacart seeks to achieve market dominance by expanding beyond shopping on its platform, as its credit card users can also make payments for other services, enjoy cashback and earn rewards.

Instacart will hope this reward and bonus offer will be sufficient to get Americans shopping online much more. America's Online grocery market fell by 12.3% this year, from $8.1 billion in April to $7.1 billion. Instacart hopes to drive more Americans into the digital shopping ecosystem and tackle this decline.
