Our Verdict

Some cities have a lot of places with free delivery and others seem to basically have none. Both discounts should work on pick up orders as well. In the past they have offered new users $10 off $15 but that doesn’t look to be available anymore. Best case scenario would be this:

  • Order something that costs $22 exactly
  • Get $7 off by using a referral bringing total to $15
  • Get $5 from American Express offer

Total you pay is $10 for $22 worth of food. Deal isn’t quite that good as you need to spend $22 before taxes, tip and delivery fees.  Thanks to anybody who uses my link, but feel free to use other readers links in the comments below.

    i have this offer on two cards, and it would help to know if Grubhub codes as Restaurant (or maybe Grocery)?

  2. Tom says:

    Doc, do you know of any coupon codes (or anywhere to find coupon codes) for GrubHub for EXISTING users? Every site I check is spammed with a billion codes for new referrals, but nobody ever seems to have codes for existing users…. seems like by now, the vast majority of people that would consider using GrubHub have already done so at least once…

  3. Justin says:

    As an FYI Grubhub almost always has a $10 off $15 promo on holiday weekends (4th of July coming up).

  4. Jim says:

    I have 2k Amex rewards points offer for spending $50 on amazon. Will purchase of Amazon e-gift card or physical gift card work to trigger the bonus points?

  5. Shaun says:

    GrubHub and Seamless seem to be very closely related. Can anyone explain to me the difference between them, and whether an Amex Offer on one would work if I use the other site?

    • Trevor says:

      They are owned by the same company. Seamless and GrubHub were separate, and mergered a few years back. However, I would use the specific service that your Amex offer specifies. I have both apps. In NYC, both apps have an identical selection, but it could always vary by market.
