In a post-pandemic world, food delivery services like DoorDash, Uber Eats, and Grubhub have become ubiquitous. And even though we can go back out to restaurants now, it’s hard to deny the convenience of a warm, tasty dinner delivered straight to your door. In an effort to even further entice customers, a handful of the popular food delivery services offer premium memberships: DoorDash offers what they call a “DashPass,” Grubhub has the aptly named “Grubhub+,” and Uber Eats has a program called “Uber One.” While all three services cost $9.99 per month to subscribe, you might already have free access to one of them.
How to get DashPass for freeThe largest food delivery service in the United States, DoorDash offers a premium monthly membership called “DashPass” for $9.99 per month. But if you’re the holder of one of the 93 million issued Chase Credit cards, you can get the DashPass for free. As a Chase cardholder, you can redeem a free twelve month subscription to DashPass, which comes with no delivery fees on all orders from restaurants, grocery and convenience stores, plus an average of $5 saved per order on waived service and delivery fees.
You can also earn 5% credit on eligible DoorDash pick-up orders. Just remember to set a reminder on your calendar one year from enrolling; otherwise you’ll start getting charged for the service.
How to get Grubhub+ for freeI’m sure you’re already familiar with Grubhub, but are you familiar with Grubhub+? What sounds like the latest streaming service is actually a premium food delivery membership, which includes unlimited, free delivery on orders over $12, as well as perks and rewards, such as free food and order discounts.

Typically $9.99 per month, you can get access to a free, one-year membership if you’re a member of Amazon Prime. If you want to activate this deal, go to amazon.com/grubhub and follow the instructions. And just in case you didn’t know, a Grubhub+ membership works with Seamless, too.
How to get Uber One for freeIn early 2022, Uber began offering a program called Uber One, in which their customers received 5% off all eligible rides and 5% off eligible delivery orders on food, grocery, alcohol, as well as unlimited free delivery on orders over $15 and grocery orders over $30, for a cost of $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year. If you’re intrigued by the offer but aren’t quite sold on signing up, a complimentary twelve-month membership is given to American Express card members.
The only catch is you need to use the aforementioned credit card as your payment method at checkout, but it’s an otherwise convenient perk if you’re already an AmEx customer. Just note that you will need to set a reminder for one year after your enrollment, otherwise you’ll start getting automatically charged for the service.
