Forget to order a cable? Best Buy now has same-day delivery with Instacart

We’ve all been there: Sometimes you just really, urgently need a charging cable, phone case, or some other electronics accessory. Now, Best Buy and Instacart might have a solution for you.

The grocery delivery app announced a partnership with Best Buy on Tuesday for same-day deliveries from “nearly all” of the retail giant’s stores in the United States. Instacart didn’t go into wildly specific detail about what will and won’t be eligible for same-day delivery, but it did say that “select” TVs, headphones, laptops, office supplies, and more would be available.

It looks like you’ll be able to select an ideal time window for your delivery and indicate whether or not you’ll be home to personally receive it, according to the screenshots Instacart shared. If this feature works as intended, it could be a boon to anyone who loses iPhone charging cables on a regular basis, at the very least.

It’s been a somewhat tumultuous year for Instacart amid increased demand for grocery deliveries due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instacart workers went on strike earlier this year demanding better pay and protections for doing their jobs in dangerous conditions. While workers got some additional resources, they notably did not get hazard pay.
