Everything You Get With Amazon Prime’s Free Grubhub+ Subscription

Everything You Get With Amazon Prime’s Free Grubhub+ Subscription

There’s a reason why an estimated 180 million people in the US are Amazon Prime members—and it’s not Prime Video’s user interface, that’s for sure. Even if you’re not the biggest fan of the company’s founder, business practices, or workplace culture, it’s incredibly hard to resist the convenience of (usually) fast and free shipping.

It became even more difficult in 2022, when members could also get a one-year subscription to Grubhub+ at no additional cost, entitling them to even more opportunities for free delivery—albeit for a limited time. But that’s no longer the case: Thanks to a recent upgrade, that perk is now permanent for Prime members.

But before you get free delivery on your pizza order, you’ll need to activate the benefit. Here’s what to know.

How to activate the Grubhub+ benefit on Amazon Prime

The free Grubhub+ membership isn’t automatically applied to Amazon Prime members’ accounts: You have to activate it in order to take advantage of the benefit. To do this, go to www.amazon.com/grubhub while signed into your Prime account, and click the yellow box that says “Activate now.”

Alternatively, if you’ve recently received an email from Amazon (more specifically, [email protected]) with the subject line “New update to your Prime membership” you can activate Grubhub+ by clicking the yellow “Activate now” box.

Either way, once you’ve activated the benefit, you should receive an email from Amazon confirming your new permanent Grubhub+ subscription. If you already pay for Grubhub+, that plan will be canceled as soon as you activate your free subscription through Amazon Prime. Of course, if you cancel your Amazon Prime membership, your free Grubhub+ subscription will go away too.

If you no longer want the free Grubhub+ subscription, you can cancel it by going to the “Manage apps & services with data access” within the “Your Account” page on Amazon and unlinking your Grubhub and Amazon accounts, or by contacting Grubhub customer support.

What are the benefits of permanent Grubhub+ membership?

Removing the one-year limit to Amazon Prime members’ free Grubhub+ subscription is important for a few reasons. First, there’s the fiscal benefit: Now, as long as you keep paying the $139/year Amazon Prime membership fee, you’ll get a $120/year Grubhub+ subscription for free indefinitely, instead of only once.

This upgrade also makes the free Grubhub+ benefit more appealing to Prime members who may be hesitant to sign up for trials or subscriptions because they want to avoid the worry and hassle of losing benefits, or being auto-subscribed to a paid service when the trial ends.

Plus, now you have the option of placing your orders through Amazon, in addition to the Grubhub site or app.

And, of course, there’s all the usual stuff you get with a Grubhub+ subscription, including:

  • Free delivery on eligible order of $12 or more (before tax, tip, and fees)

  • Lower service fees

  • 5% Grubhub+ credit back on pickup orders (which you can use on future orders for the next 90 days)

  • Other exclusive offers and deals

Once you activate your free Grubhub+ subscription, you can get $5 off one $25+ order from now through June 3, 2024 at 2:59 am EST (June 2, 2024 at 11:59pm PST), or while supplies last, by entering code PRIME5 at checkout.
