How to Save on Door Dash
Door Dash is currently offering no fee delivery in some areas, but even without that you can find various savings. Eating out is not possible for now, but you can still get food from your beloved eateries with Door Dash. Learn savings strategies here:
All deliveries are now no-contact
To make sure your delivery is really no-contact, go to “Delivery Instructions” and select no-contact option. It should be automatic anyway, but double check it just in case.
Use text messages with your dasher:
You can always send a text message to your driver and ask him or her to drop the package off by your door without seeing you. To help you can even send them a picture of where you would like to have the delivery left.
Free delivery for two months
If you have a family member or a partner, you can get free delivery for 2 months during regular times, when delivery is not free. If you are new to Door Dash and have never downloaded the app before, you always get free 30 days. Door Dash tracks you by your phone number, email, and credit card, but not by your physical address. So if you have somebody living at the same address, he or she can also sign up and get another month free. You can do all that without any coupon code.
Door Dash gift cards from Target
You can get Door Dash gift card from Target and get 5% off if you use REDCard to pay for it. You don’t have to go to a physical Target store, because all those Door Dash gift cards are electronic and will be sent to you via email. If you have any questions, you can call Target customer service.
You can also check out Raise.com or Gift Card Granny for discounted gifts cards as well. PayPal, Amazon, Walmart, Giftcards, and Giftcardmall also sell Door Dash gift cards.
