The statement credit applies automatically after you make an eligible purchase, up to the $60 cap. 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 year of complimentary DashPass membership. 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.

Best card for Uber Eats

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 up to $20 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 $550 annual fee (see rates & fees). Enrollment is required for select benefits.

In February, the American Express Gold Card added 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.

In addition to the discount codes, you may be able to save even more on your order with an Eats Pass subscription*. For $9.99 per month, you’ll receive unlimited free delivery and can save up to 5% on all orders over $15 at eligible restaurants (state taxes and fees may apply and do not count toward order minimum). However, with both of the Amex cards mentioned above, you could get a complimentary 12-month subscription when you enroll by Dec. 31, 2021. The pass will auto-bill starting 12 months from initial enrollment in this offer, at the then-current monthly rate.

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. Firstly, all of the companies offer subscriptions for free deliveries from eligible restaurants.

As previously mentioned, you can get a complimentary year of 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.
