How to Use Grubhub Referral Codes to Save Money Today
The gig economy has made modern life very convenient. You can order nearly anything to your door, and food delivery remains one of the most popular service options.
Grubhub is a leader in the food delivery market, but all that convenience can be expensive.
If you’re looking to save money on your next food delivery app order, consider using Grubhub’s referral program to do so.
This article will walk you through everything you need to know about the referral program, including what Grubhub is, an overview of Grubhub referral codes for drivers and customers, how to refer a friend to Grubhub or use a referral code yourself, any applicable restrictions to the Grubhub refer-a-friend program, and where Grubhub delivers.
What Is Grubhub?
Grubhub is one of the biggest online and mobile food ordering and delivery services, connecting hungry diners with local takeout restaurants.
The Grubhub Incorporated brands include Grubhub, Seamless, Tapingo, LevelUp, AllMenus, MenuPages, and Eat24.
Diners are able to order from over 95,000 local restaurants in over 1,700 cities in the United States and London by using Grubhub’s website and mobile apps.
Grubhub Referral Codes for Drivers
Unfortunately, Grubhub doesn’t run referral programs for drivers on a regular basis the way other companies like Uber and Lyft do.
Grubhub will occasionally run a referral program for drivers in new or secondary markets that are underserved. You don’t need to sign up for special notifications to find out about these referral programs. Grubhub will send an email to your driver account email address notifying you that they’re running this referral program.
They’ll share what you can earn per referred driver who works in that area and let you know if there’s a cap to the number of drivers you can refer. Grubhub will also let you know when the promotion is ending so you can encourage any referrals to sign up before that date.
If you’re interested, you can sign up to participate and will receive a referral link you can then share with anyone you know who might be interested in working for Grubhub in that market. Based on the Reddit subforum /couriersofreddit, you may need to follow up with Grubhub to get your driver referral credit.
On the other hand, Grubhub does frequently offer referral codes for customers, which are a great way to earn some extra Grubhub credits for sharing Grubhub with your family, friends, and followers on social media.
Grubhub Referral Codes for Customers
Like most food delivery services, Grubhub only offers promo codes for new users who are placing their first orders.
The best way to get a Grubhub referral code is to ask your friends who are already using Grubhub for theirs. If you don’t have any friends who are existing Grubhub users, you can use our code by clicking here.
Note that Grubhub referral codes only discount the cost of the food items you are ordering. You will still be expected to pay any fees, including the delivery fee, and tips on your credit card or with cash.
How to Refer a Friend to Grubhub
There are two ways to refer a friend to Grubhub and the offers can be different depending on which one you choose. You can refer a friend to Grubhub by logging into your account on the mobile app or by using Grubhub.com.
On the Grubhub Mobile App
If you prefer to use the Grubhub mobile app, just log in and scroll all the way to the bottom of the home page. Click on the purple section that says “Get $10!”
Once you’ve clicked that, you’ll be taken to a page that allows you to enter your friend’s email address and the address you’d like to use to send the referral email.
You’ll be able to choose whether or not to send your friend a reminder in three days and whether you’d like to get offers in your inbox. Both options will be automatically checked for you so uncheck them if you don’t want to send a reminder or get offers.
Grubhub also offers you the ability to import your contacts from Gmail or Yahoo mail for easy emailing.
With the current mobile app referral promo code, your friend will get $10 off their first-time order of $15 or more and you’ll receive a $10 credit in the app after they’ve placed their first order.
To refer a friend on Grubhub.com, you’ll need to load the website and log into your account. Click on “Hi, FirstName!” to access the menu. Choose the “Refer a Friend” option.
Once you’ve clicked on that, you’ll be taken to a page that allows you to enter your friend’s email address and the address you’d like to use to send the referral email.
At this point, you can choose whether or not to send your friend a reminder in three days and whether you’d like to get offers from Grubhub in your inbox. Both options will be automatically checked for you so uncheck them if you don’t want to send a reminder or get offers.
Grubhub.com also offers you the option of importing your contacts from Gmail or Yahoo mail so you can quickly refer any of your contacts you think may not already be using Grubhub.
You’ll also have access to your referral link if you prefer to send your link in a personalized email, share it via text or social media messaging, or save it for future reference.
With the current website referral promo code, your friend will get $12 off their first-time order of $15 or more and you’ll receive a $12 credit in the app after they’ve placed their first order.
How to Use a Grubhub Referral Code
The easiest way to use a Grubhub referral code is to simply click the link shared by your friend and then set up your account and place your first order.
You can also enter it manually by loading Grubhub.com or downloading the Grubhub app for your Apple mobile phone or your Android mobile phone. Enter your address to see the available local restaurants and choose your food items from your favorite restaurant.
Continue to checkout.
Tap “Enter Promo Code.”
Enter the referral code you plan to use and tap “Apply.”
To use a Grubhub referral code, you must be signing up to Grubhub and placing an order for the first time. Generally, Grubhub referral codes apply to a flat amount off your first order of $15 or more. Grubhub only allows you to have one account on their platform and will penalize you if you have multiple accounts.
If you’ve already signed up to Grubhub and would like to keep saving money, you can use one of the Grubhub coupon codes that are valid for existing users.
Grubhub Referral Code Restrictions
As always, there are some restrictions on how you can use the Grubhub referral program.
Grubhub referral coupon codes are only for new customers placing their first order. Grubhub doesn’t allow anyone to have multiple Grubhub accounts to redeem multiple referral coupon codes and will shut down any accounts that have been linked together. That person will be barred from Grubhub and all of Grubhub Inc’s subsidiary food delivery platforms.
Grubhub may also shut down the Refer a Friend offer at any time for any reason without warning. Grubhub says that they reserve the right to not honor any outstanding discount offers or any part of them, should any technical failures, fraud, or any other factor beyond the reasonable control of Grubhub impair the proper function or integrity of the offer, as determined by Grubhub.
As long as you aren’t gaming the system, the Grubhub referral program should work just fine for you.
Where Does Grubhub Deliver?
Grubhub operates in most major cities across the United States and in many medium-sized and small ones, too. To see if Grubhub is available where you live, you can visit Grubhub.com or download the Apple app or Android app to check.
Just enter your address in the box below “Who delivers in your neighborhood?” to see your options.
If you don’t like the local restaurants that deliver through Grubhub, you can always try Seamless, Postmates, or DoorDash. You can also ask Grubhub to add your favorite restaurants to their platform by visiting get.grubhub.com. Choose “diner” from the “Restaurant Role” dropdown, and enter all the required information about the restaurant you’d like to see on Grubhub’s platform.
Someone from the Grubhub team will contact the restaurant directly.
Give Grubhub a Try
Whether you’re new to food delivery services or simply haven’t tried Grubhub yet, give it a chance.
The next time you’re looking to avoid the hassle of cooking, consider using Grubhub’s service to bring you a burrito from your favorite Mexican restaurant or perhaps a pizza from the Italian place too far away to walk. No matter what your culinary preferences, your first Grubhub order will be easy and affordable, thanks to the Grubhub referral program.
And if you don’t like Grubhub, you can always try Seamless or DoorDash to order food to your door.
