Instacart, the leading grocery technology company in North America, today announced “The Holiday Rescue App” – its most extensive holiday campaign yet, which reinforces its position as an indispensable partner to families throughout the entire holiday season. “The Holiday Rescue App” brand campaign will run for seven weeks in the US and Canada and features multiple campaign extensions, from hosting family and gifting the ultimate presents to preparing for New Year’s Eve celebrations. The new creative spotlights how Instacart is the one-stop destination that can serve every holiday need. “Instacart’s breadth of selection from more than 1,400 retail banners enables consumers to shop all of their holiday needs, including last-minute ingredients, holiday decor, presents, Christmas trees and spirits this Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve and beyond,” said Jasmine Taylor, Senior Director of Marketing at Instacart. “We know that unexpected curveballs are a constant during the holidays, so this campaign comes with a promise to save the day – and consumers’ sanity. We’re reminding busy families that we can rescue them all season long from the holiday madness.”
Additionally, to help celebrate the Instacart Shopper community, we’re launching a nationwide sweepstakes for 52 lucky shoppers who will win free groceries for a year. The sweepstakes runs from Nov. 20, 2023, until Jan. 1, 2024; Each batch Instacart Shoppers complete during this period counts as an entry to the sweepstakes, with holidays counting for 2x entries.
Multiple CPG brand partners are activating within the campaign to help inspire busy heads of household as they prepare for all of their holiday festivities, including Campbell’s, Conagra Brands, Diageo, Edwards Desserts, Hormel Foods, Kodiak, McCormick, Molson Coors, Mondelez and Moet Hennessy in the US and Hershey, Kellogg’s, Conagra Brands and Mars Wrigley in Canada. Instacart’s retail co-marketing campaigns will all feature “Holiday Rescue App” messaging and creative showcasing the breadth of its retail banner assortment and selection with gifting options across beauty, sports, home improvement, petcare and spirits.
