For quite a while there has been talk of Chase adding some sort of a dining benefit to the Chase Sapphire Reserve® Card. This would be intended as a competitive response to the perks that Amex has added to some of their cards.
Well, it looks like Chase has now rolled out one cool new benefit, though I don’t see any official announcement about it yet.
Chase & DoorDash partnership
Chase seems to have a new partnership with food delivery company DoorDash, offering select cardmembers a DashPass membership, which ordinarily retails for $9.99 per month. There had been rumors of larger changes coming to the Sapphire Reserve, which have since been confirmed.
DoorDash benefits for Sapphire Reserve & Sapphire Preferred
DoorDash DashPass is available for free to those with the Chase Sapphire Reserve® Card (review) or Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card (review) for a period of at least 12 months, and a maximum of 24 months, upon activation.
Memberships will auto-renew beyond that, but you can always cancel.
This is a value of $9.99 per month.
DoorDash benefits for Freedom & Freedom Unlimited
DoorDash DashPass is available to those with the Chase Freedom® (review) and Chase Freedom Unlimited® (review) for a period of three months, and then the membership will be auto-renewed for the next nine months with a 50% discount applied (though you can always cancel your membership).
How to register for the Chase & DoorDash partnership
Simply create a new account with DoorDash (or log into your existing account). Then go into your profile and select the “Payment Cards” section. Once there, add your eligible Chase card.
At that point you should get a pop-up offering you a free membership, based on the card you have.
If you’re an existing cardmember and have an eligible card linked, simply remove it and re-add it, and you should see this offer.
What is DoorDash DashPass?
With DoorDash DashPass, you pay a $0 delivery fee when ordering from thousands of restaurants nationwide. Just place an order totaling at least $12 at a restaurant with a blue checkmark next to it, and you’ll get a $0 delivery fee and reduced service fee. DoorDash claims that this saves you an average of $4-5 per order.
DoorDash DashPass ordinarily costs $9.99 per month.
Note that you need to pay for your DoorDash order with your eligible Chase card to receive these benefits, at least according to the terms. Similarly, if you remove your Chase card from your DashPass account, the benefits will be taken away.
For those who otherwise pay for a DoorDash DashPass membership, this is a value of up to ~$120 per year, so that’s pretty awesome. Meanwhile, I understand that for others this is of limited or no value, especially if you don’t order a lot of delivery.
While there has been no official announcement yet, it’s nice to see this quietly being rolled out.
Personally I tend to use Postmates for food delivery, though maybe I should now give DoorDash a try.
