The on-demand food and grocery delivery service is offering Peacock Premium (regularly $59.99 per year) for free with Instacart+ memberships, which includes unlimited free delivery on orders over $35, lower service fees, 5 percent credit back on eligible pickup orders and other perks for $9.99 per month or $99 per year with annual billing. Instacart says the service pays for itself if you order twice per month.

Get Peacock Premium for free with Instacart+

Instacart+ users will get free access to Peacock’s ad-supported Premium plan for as long as their membership is in effect and the offer is available. The deal doesn’t apply to existing Peacock accounts, and you cannot use the offer to upgrade to Peacock’s Premium Plus (reg. $11.99 per month) which has fewer ads.

While Peacock does offer a free streaming option, the only way to get access to over 80,000 hours of TV episodes and movies is with the Premium or Premium Plus plans. Both packages include the new holiday film Genie, Five Nights at Freddy’s, Teenage Kraken, The Exorcist: Believer, Strays and other films straight from theaters; next-day access to NBC and Bravo series such as Love Island, Vanderpump Rules and the entire Real Housewives franchise; original series including Rainn Wilson and the Geography of Bliss, Bupkis, Mrs. Davis, Bel-Air, Poker Face, Meet Cute, A Friend of the Family and more; past seasons of Yellowstone and That ’70s Show; and much more.

Peacock Premium also has over 50 channels and live sports, including MLB Sunday Leadoff, Premier League, Sunday Night Football and WWE. It’s also the streaming home of the Women’s World Cup and the U.S. Gymnastics Championship.

Peacock’s Premium Plus tier includes all of the above, plus your local NBC channel live, no ads (except on select live TV shows) and the ability to download select titles to watch offline later. The ad-free plan regularly costs $11.99 monthly or $119.99 per year.
