Free food delivery for all! Amazon unveils partnership with GrubHub for Prime members

Enjoy food from many of your favorite restaurants without any fees

Food delivery services like Grubhub make enjoying your favorite takeout completely hassle-free — your food arrives at your door without having to sit in traffic, find a parking space or wait in line. 

But there is one thing that isn’t so hot about GrubHub: the delivery fees.

If you’re an Amazon Prime member, we’ve got good news. You can score a year of Grubhub+ free, so you can order food at a wide array of restaurants on Grubhub without any delivery fees. Learn more about this can’t-miss deal and how to sign up for big takeout savings this year. 

How to take advantage of the GrubHub deal for Prime members

What does the deal entail?

Starting July 6, Prime members are eligible to sign up for a free year-long trial membership to Grubhub+. Grubhub+ provides unlimited access to $0 delivery fees at hundreds of thousands of restaurants for orders of $12 or more before tax, tip and other fees. Normally, a Grubhub+ membership costs $9.99 per month. 

The membership also entitles you to other member-only benefits and rewards like additional discounts and free food. In addition, Grubhub+ orders are eligible for a donation match to Gruhub’s Donate the Change program, which contributes to more than 20 charitable organizations.

How do you sign up for the deal?

Start by making sure you’re signed in to your Amazon Prime account on your smartphone, tablet or computer. Next, click the “Activate free Grubhub+” link. 

If you already have a Grubhub account, you’ll be prompted to sign in. If you don’t have an account, you’ll be given the opportunity to create a Grubhub account. You must also agree to the terms and conditions to link the two accounts and share your Prime membership information with Grubhub. 

If you aren’t a Prime member, you’ll need to sign up before activating the deal. Those who already have a Grubhub+ membership are still eligible. Follow the same steps outlined above, and the free membership period will begin with your next billing cycle. Unfortunately, Grubhub Campus, Corporate and some existing partnership members are ineligible for the Prime deal. 

What happens after the one-year period ends?

When your free one-year Grubhub+ membership ends, Grubhub will charge the payment method linked to your Grubhub account each month at the current rate, which is presently $9.99 per month. If you want to cancel your membership, you only need to click the link in the Grubhub+ membership area of your Grubhub account settings or contact Grubhub customer support.
