[Expired] Citi: $50 Off $99 On Fresh Direct With Promo Code CITI50 – Is It A Good Deal? (No, It’s The Standard Deal)

Deal has expired, view more Citi deals by clicking here.

The Offer

  • Citi has sent out an offer to some cardholders offering them $50 off a $99 purchase with Fresh Direct when the promo code CITI50 is used

The Fine Print

  • This offer is good for $50 off your first order totaling $99 or more when promotion code CITI50 is entered at checkout and a Mastercard is used for payment.
  • Offer may not be combined with any other promotion code.
  • Offer expires at 11:59 pm ET, 10/15/19.

Our Verdict

A lot of readers reported receiving this offer. Keep in mind this is just the standard offer for new customers (promo code WELCOME19) so this really isn’t a special deal for Citi cardholders at all. It still might be worth doing for some, just don’t feel any time pressure or that you’re getting some super secret amazing deal. Might as well try to go through a portal for another 6% cash back, but the use of the promo code will likely invalidate that.

After checking out the service, I’ve realized that with most of these online food delivery services (eg shipt), the prices are elevated anywhere from 50-100%. Unless you’re diligently comparing prices with your local market, you’re probably coming out a bit better here with this 50% off promotion but afterwards, you’ll be paying a decent premium on the convenience.

not to mention the extra waste that the packaging generates. thumbs down.

It really depends what you buy. If you look for items on sale, you can do pretty well. I personally stock up on things like frozen veggies, but for fresher things (like produce and fish), you are indeed better off just going to the grocery store (both for price reasons and because I don’t trust other people to choose those items for me).

I have a 10% off offer on an AmEx BCP for either of the 3 online food delivery service (FD, PeaPod, InstaCart).

The prices are really marked up, on these services, however, the trial WELCOME19 offer is a MM (just don’t buy the expensive ones).
WELCOME19 – $50 off $99 [-$50]
FD offers free trial pass for two months – $0 delivery fees [$0]
FD also offers $5 off for scheduling delivery in non-peak hours [-$5]
AmEx – 10% off (no minimum, up to $10) [-$4.5]

Worth trying it once I guess.

This code doesn’t have to be used on your first purchase. An existing user can get the $50 off with this code. Not sure why you consider this the same deal as a welcome19 offer?

Some people here are saying the FreshDirect prices are marked up beyond normal grocery stores. I’ve been using FD for years and that hasn’t been my experience. For instance, a large container of 2% Fagé yogurt sells for $7.29 on FD. At the grocery stores in my Manhattan neighborhood, it goes for $8.99. What I have noticed instead is that grocery items in general (esp. major proteins and specialty items) have gotten significantly more expensive in the past few years, no matter where you shop.

I do use discount codes and shop the sale items whenever possible, naturally, so if this code works for existing users, that would be excellent.
