How to Save Money on Doordash

Ever since I was a kid I was brought up to be frugal and to save and budget money. * Disclaimer: I am not a financial planner.

Avoid the surge by avoiding rush hour

  • Avoid rush hour: Rush hour is the worst time to order because of the added traffic that comes along with it. If you can, avoid ordering during rush hour.
  • Avoid holidays: Holidays are another area where a lot of drivers will be out making deliveries. If you can, avoiding ordering on holidays might help save money.
  • Avoid weekends: Weekend orders tend to come in earlier than weekday orders and since they're closer together than weekday meals, they'll get more expensive faster as well.
  • Avoid bad weather: Rainy days are bad for doordash drivers because they make it harder for them to navigate streets without getting stuck or crashing into other cars (and then you have to pay for their damages). A little ice won't hurt anyone but snowstorms pose an even greater danger!
  • Avoid big events: Big events such as concerts and sporting events generate lots of delivery requests which means higher prices for customers like yourself who may have no choice but eat at home instead."

Order in groups.

  • Order in groups.

Ordering with friends or family is an easy way to save money on Doordash orders. You can get a discount on multiple orders when you order together and split the bill among everyone. To make this work, you have to be careful about what you are ordering at one time, because some food establishments have limitations on how many items they will sell in one transaction. For example, if there is only one table being used at a restaurant and there are four people waiting for their orders, the restaurant might not allow them all to order at once because it may take too long for those four people’s food to arrive if they do so. The best strategy here is to give each person their own phone number so that when each person gets their food they can call their number out loud so everyone knows who got what order. Then everyone pays separately after eating instead of trying splitting up one payment card between all four of them!

Check the doordash app for offers and discounts.

Check the doordash app for offers and discounts. There are a lot of deals on food delivery apps, but it helps to have the best one.

  • Check for deals in your area using the mobile website or desktop site. You'll be able to see what's currently available, so you can take advantage of whatever promotions are going on nearby without having to hunt them down yourself.
  • The app will also show special offers that aren't always advertised, like free deliveries or newly added restaurants that you might not have known about before (or gave up on because they were too far away).

Use cashback credit cards if you can pay your balance in full.

If you're looking for a way to save money on doordash, one of the best options is cashback credit cards. Cashback cards give you a percentage of your total purchases when you use your card, which can add up quickly if you are paying off your balance in full each month. Some cashback cards offer up to 5% back on purchases, which means that if you use them for shopping online or in stores (like at doordash), it could save you money!

While this may sound like an expensive option, keep in mind that every little bit adds up over time. This can be especially helpful if it's difficult for you to keep track of all the rewards programs out there and where they apply—cashback credit cards take care of it all automatically based on what type of store/merchant was used during checkout process without any extra effort required by users themselves!

Download the DoorDash app or use the mobile website to order instead of the desktop site.

One of the best ways to save money on DoorDash is to use the mobile website instead of the desktop site.

The mobile website is free, easy-to-use, quick and convenient. The desktop version can be slow and clunky (or even glitchy). In addition, using the mobile website will provide you with more security and privacy than using a computer. This is because Internet service providers don’t typically provide access to secure communications channels through their wireless networks unless you pay extra for it—and most people don't know how much they need that kind of service until something happens that makes them realize how important it actually is!

There are ways of getting lower prices on DoorDash.

There are ways of getting lower prices on DoorDash. One way is to use cashback credit cards and other rewards programs like it.

For example, you can earn points when you use your cashback card and then redeem those points on purchases made through DoorDash. This is a great way to save money in the long run if you order from them regularly.

Another tip is checking for offers while placing an order. Make sure to look at the menu before placing your order, because sometimes specials will appear there that aren't advertised elsewhere!

If one person orders with another or groups together in general, it helps cut down costs since there's less food being prepared per person compared with cooking for just one person at home (whereas restaurants often charge per entree). This means savings up front—and who doesn't want that? Avoid rush hour too; this will help keep delivery times low so customers aren’t waiting around all day long for something fast-paced like pizza delivery service might take longer than expected due


We hope these tips have given you a better idea of how to save money on DoorDash. It’s not that difficult to start saving money when ordering food from DoorDash, and the more you use this service the more you will realize how much it can actually save you.
