I saved as much as 17% of Instacart’s Total Wine over Drizly, but both are great compared to the competitors.
I ordered seven of my favorite 750ml liquor bottles from Instacart’s Total Wine and Drizly to compare prices and apps. Doordash, Favor and Instacart’s Specs are too expensive or don’t have enough menu information to proceed.

*Cutting corners on service fees and tips can make Drizly tips and Instacart’s tips and service fee less. These are optional fields, but I always imagine these amounts go into the prioritization and care of my order. Alcohol is a luxury product, so if you can’t afford suggested gratuity for the delivery or the technology, maybe get off your ass. If you’ve served our country or plan on drinking all this yourself and have a hard time getting to the liquor store, by all means, tip less and ditch the service fee, but most of you should do the right thing.
