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.

There are also regular Amex Offers for Grubhub, allowing cardholders to earn extra points or save more on their orders. You may also be able to save even more on your order through Grubhub’s “Perks” program. The card has a $250 annual fee (see rates & fees). Enrollment is required for select benefits.

The Platinum Card® from American Express cardholders receive up to $200 in Uber Cash (for use in the U.S.) each calendar year, distributed as up to $15 monthly credits, plus an additional $20 (for a total of $35) in December. These credits don’t just apply to Uber rides – they apply to Uber Eats orders, as well. This way, you can score a meal delivered from your favorite local spot every month. The card has a $695 annual fee (see rates & fees). Enrollment is required for select benefits.

The American Express Gold Card offers a similar Uber Cash benefit of its own. It works the same way, except cardholders get up to $120 in annual Uber Cash, distributed as up to $10 credits per month when the card is added to the Uber app. This is only applicable to U.S. Uber Eats orders and Rides. Enrollment is required for select benefits.

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. 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.

Do DoorDash, Grubhub or Uber Eats offer student discounts?

Of the major food delivery companies, Grubhub is the only one that has offered discounts specifically for students. From time to time, Grubhub offers verified students $12 off their next order of $15 or more via Unidays, but unfortunately, it’s not currently available.
