As more and more of the country goes on lock-down, many cities and even states have announced that all bars and restaurants must close down their dining rooms to help prevent a gathering of people in close proximity.
For those of us that are doing our part by staying home, the good news is that restaurants are still able to operate via drive-thru, takeout or delivery.
So if you’re running low on staples or you just need a break from the home-cooked meals and want to treat your family to a meal from their favorite restaurant, RetailMeNot has provided this handy list of restaurant chains that are offering Free Delivery.
Uber Eats is offering free delivery for ALL local restaurants! Plus, get $7 off your first Uber Eats order. Terms apply. You MUST use my code at checkout to get the $7 credit: eats-uberjeana
*You can also earn cash back through GrubHub – just check the “perks” tab of the GrubHub app, then look under the “Earn” heading.
How to Earn Cash Back and Save More
Don’t forget to place your online order using your favorite online rebate site (like RetailMeNot, CouponCabin, Ebates (now Rakuten) so you can earn cash back on your orders too! Every little bit of savings counts – especially now.
Did you know you can create your own savings from almost any retailer by purchasing gift cards at a discount on Raise? This is one of the best way to “stack” your savings.
See below for an example of how you can score $30 in food from IHOP for just $4.17…
- Create an account at Raise here. (You’ll get $5 after your first purchase when you use my signup link!)
- Create an account at Rakuten here. (You’ll get $10 once you’ve spent $25 through your portal – but only when you use my signup link)
- Once your signup is completed and you’ve logged into Rakuten, search for “Raise” and click through to shop. This will earn you 1% cash back on your Raise purchase.
- Search for IHOP and navigate to that page. You’ll see you can pre-filled gift cards at a discount of 14% or create your own in any amount for a savings of 5%. I’m going to use the $25 GC at 14% off for this example.
- At checkout, new members can save 10% off your Raise order with code: FIRST (Max savings $20. Valid on first purchase for a limited time only.)
- Once you have your online GC number to use from Raise (check your account order history to reveal the code), go to IHOP’s website and use code IHOP20 at checkout to get 20% off your first online order. There is no minimum required for free delivery.
So let’s say you place an order for $30 at IHOP. This would be your cost savings according to each step above:
$19.36 spent on Raise for $25GC (14% off + used extra 10% off code at checkout)
You place an order for $30 at IHOP but are only charged $24 with the 20% off code.*
= $30 in food for only $19.36 plus you have $1 left on your GC
+$10.19 Rakuten ($.19=1% from Raise purchase + $10 signup bonus)
+$5 Raise (signup bonus)
= Net spend of just $4.17 for a $30 meal from IHOP + $1 left on GC!
*This calculation doesn’t include any taxes or tips you may spend on your order at IHOP
