Amazon Offers Prime Members Free Grubhub+


Amazon has teamed up with on-demand delivery service Grubhub to offer Prime members a free, year-long Grubhub+ membership trial.

Beginning July 6, Prime members in the U.S. can sign up for Grubhub+, a monthly membership offering unlimited $0 delivery fees on orders of at least $12 at eligible restaurants as well as member-only perks — like free food and order discounts — and donation matching, for one year.

"Being able to give Prime members one year of Grubhub+ and no delivery fees from restaurants is our way of saying 'thank you,'" said Jamil Ghani, vice president, Amazon Prime, in a news release announcing the partnership. "The value of a Prime membership continues to grow with this offer."

Grubhub+ members also receive a donation match on orders through Grubhub’s Donate the Change program, which raised more than $25 million in 2021 and benefited about 20 charitable organizations, according to the release.

After 12 months, Prime members enrolled in Grubhub+ will have their membership automatically renewed at its usual rate of $9.99 a month, until canceled. New and existing Grubhub (and Grubhub+) users are eligible for the Prime deal.
