Best credit card for DoorDash

In addition to the discount codes listed above, you can save even more on your DoorDash orders using the Chase Sapphire Reserve. From April 2022 through December 2024, cardholders will receive a $5 monthly DoorDash in-app credit — up to a $165 value. Beyond that, you’ll earn 3x points (a 6% return based on TPG valuations) on all your dining spending, including DoorDash.

The card also comes with a complimentary DashPass membership through Dec. 31, 2024. This unlocks lower service fees and free delivery on qualifying DoorDash and Caviar orders over $12, saving an average of $4 to $5 per order, according to DoorDash.

How do you get free delivery on DoorDash, Grubhub and Uber Eats orders?

There are several ways to get free delivery on DoorDash, Grubhub and Uber Eats orders. First, all of the companies offer subscriptions for free deliveries from eligible restaurants. DoorDash offers DashPass, Grubhub offers Grubhub+ and Uber Eats offers Eats Pass. Each subscription costs $9.99 per month and gets you free delivery on eligible orders over $12 or $15.

As previously mentioned, you can get a complimentary DashPass membership with the Chase Sapphire Reserve or certain cobranded Chase cards. Or, you can get three free months with a World or World Elite Mastercard. You can also get complimentary access to Grubhub+ with Lyft Pink — another Chase Sapphire Reserve perk. Likewise, you may be able to get a complimentary Eats Pass membership with an eligible Amex card.

Some restaurants offer promotions, such as free delivery on your first order. Uber Eats also sometimes offers free or discounted deliveries for non-Eats Pass users.
