When I moved to New York City, I was blown away. It had great comedy and public transportation and yada yada BUT THE FOOD! I instantly fell in love when I discovered how many different cuisines I could sample every meal. I was flabbergasted how easy it was to order a BLT at midnight followed by Thai noodles at 3am if I was still hungry.
Soon after I moved here, the ads in the subway became blanketed with food delivery apps and websites. Combining an app with ordering food was a match made in heaven. You're no longer put on hold while ordering and your order is rarely incorrect! Being able to go from your phone to food at your door in minutes was like an evolution in tech to me.
While most of these sites started in limited cities, most of these apps expanded nationwide in recent years! That's why I put together this list of discounted food delivery for as many Hiffers as possible.
If you have a takeout or delivery place near by, then your town might be on one of these sites! The best way to find out is to enter your zip code or address on their homepage. Many of the websites have a list of cities & areas they serve at the bottom of their main page too.
These sites also famously only give discounts on your first orders to new customers. However, they confirm your identity via your credit card. Soooo, if you have multiple credit cards and make a few different email accounts … well … 😉
Discounted Meal Delivery Codes
$7 off ($10 off now, with some cities getting $12!) your first order of $15+ with no promo code needed as long as you use this link. It's been my go-to food delivery site for years.
Delivery.com – Another
$7 $10 off your first order of $15+ by using this link. One of Delivery.com's best perks is being the only food delivery service that also lets you earn rewards! You earn 20 points per $1 spent, which are redeemed for gift cards or free food. Of all the sites listed here, I find they send out the most “random” discount codes via email too. Once every 10 days or so I get a limited 15% promo code, which is great compared to how infrequently other sites offer these.
In fact, every Monday in July has a new Delivery.com promo code emailed out. The first week was $2 off any order for all users.
$7 off your first order Certain cities get $10 to $15 in free credit, though I can't tell if there's a $15 threshold you need to hit or not.
Seamless – You'll save
$7 (they've also upped this to $10-$12!) on your first-time order over $15. I'm beginning to see a pattern here.
Postmates -You'll want to download the app then enter code 6x9h. This will give you free delivery credit (up to $10) on your first order.
UberEats – Again, after downloading their app, enter code eats-uberhif to save $5 off your first order plus get $100 in delivery fees waived.
Bring Me That – Use code bda3f3 to save $5 off your first meal.
Caviar – Promo code ORANGEBIRD nets you $5 off your first order of $25+.
Eat24 – Eat24 is no more! They were recently acquired and rolled into Grubhub, which…let's be honest, was the best choice here. Yelp was terrible as the owner and operator of Eat24 IMHO. Amazon Restaurants – Yet another recent dropout to the meal delivery services is Amazon! I was surprised to see them give up so soon, but their Restaurants program never did seem to get past the trial stage. It seems they've pivoted to Amazon Fresh grocery delivery, which makes more sense given their acquisition of Whole Foods.
With these codes sites and promo codes, you can be eating for cheap in no time! But what about when you want to order ingredients for your next meal on the cheap?
Discounted Groceries Delivery Codes
Amazon Fresh – I've personally used Amazon Fresh for over a year now for most of my groceries and they never disappoint. They always have a weekly-changing, full-sized item that's on sale for $0.25, so it's kinda like a freebie!
Fresh Direct – New users get $25 off $99 with code SUN25 or $50 off $125 with code SUMMER50.
Instacart – New users get anywhere from $5 to $20 off their first order for free, plus the delivery fee is waived on your first order.
Peapod – You can get same-day, instant grocery delivery service via Peapod if you live in the following areas: Chicagoland, Milwaukee, S.E. Wisconsin, Indianapolis, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Southern New Hampshire, Maryland, Virginia, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, S.E. Pennsylvania.
New customers get $20 off your first order, plus free delivery for 60 days.
Discounted Alcohol Delivery Codes
Drizly – They don't sell food, but this new company delivers something equally important for some people – alcohol! Code DRIZLYDEAL should save $5 off your first order and your alcohol will be delivered to your door within 1 hour! I don't know about you, but there have been a million times I've wanted booze in my hand within an hour!
So there ya have it! If you're a human who eats food and enjoys occasionally letting somebody else cook for you, use some of these sites to score some discounted meals.
