Ordering has become even more rewarding for some Chase customers.
Starting January 7, 2020 and for a limited time, eligible cardholders can receive free memberships to DoorDash’s subscription delivery service, DashPass, which advertises free deliveries on eligible orders from select restaurants. A DashPass subscription typically costs $ 9.99 per month.
How it works
DoorDash members can activate the DashPass offer by adding an eligible Chase credit card as the default payment method in the DoorDash app. Several Chase cards are eligible, although the transaction duration differs depending on the card and the activation date. (Offers must be activated before December 31, 2021.)
Four more cards will have access to the free DashPass for the first three months after activation, followed by a 50% reduction on the current rate for nine months after that.
Once the offer is activated, orders placed with restaurants that are eligible for DashPass (indicated by a blue check mark in the app) totaling $ 12 or more will be eligible for the DashPass benefits of a $ 0 delivery charge and a delivery charge. reduced service. The DoorDash website notes that “the fees vary for each restaurant on the DoorDash platform” and are calculated as a percentage of the order subtotal. The company also notes that additional charges may apply “for orders less than a minimum subtotal and for orders when demand is particularly high.”
Is this a good deal?
If you regularly use DoorDash several times a week, it could definitely save you money – averaging $ 4 to $ 5 per order, according to DoorDash, although shipping costs can vary widely.
Holders of the Chase Sapphire Reserve® and Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card might find this promotion particularly appealing, as both Sapphire cards earn high rewards on catering purchases (3 points per dollar and 2 points per dollar, respectively).
But keep the following in mind:
The DashPass service is not available in all markets. You’ll want to check your DoorDash app first.
Shipping is free via DashPass, but the “service charges” are separate.
These are limited time promotions, so it will be up to you to know when they end and / or cancel your membership.
