Online grocery delivery services can be major time-savers. While prices for items are sometimes a bit higher than if you did the shopping yourself, there are ways to save on your online grocery delivery orders.

Although not as often as food delivery services, grocery delivery services like Amazon Fresh, Boxed, Instacart and Walmart Grocery sometimes offer promo codes that can help you save on your orders. Plus, with the right credit card, you might be able to stretch your savings even further.

Finding these promotions and checking which ones work can be tedious, so we’ve built this guide to take away the legwork. We try to include promo codes that are available to both new and existing users. However, some promotions may be targeted, so not all codes will necessarily work for you.

In addition to restaurants like The Cheesecake Factory and Grubhub, this credit applies to Boxed orders. The card has a $250 annual fee (see rates & fees).

Best credit card for Walmart Grocery orders

Although most Walmart locations code as superstores, Walmart Grocery orders tend to code as grocery purchases. So, you’ll want to use a credit card that earns bonus points on groceries.

Among the top grocery credit cards is The Amex EveryDay® Preferred Credit Card from American Express. It earns 3x points at U.S. supermarkets on up to $6,000 per calendar year in purchases (then 1x). However, if you use your card 30 or more times in a billing period, you’ll earn 50% more points. That bumps up your return to 4.5 points per dollar spent on groceries. That’s a whopping 9% return based on TPG valuations, making this the most valuable grocery card available if you use it 30 times a month.

The information for the Amex EveryDay Preferred card has been collected independently by The Points Guy. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.
