Grubhub+ is now part of your Amazon Prime membership

Amazon is making Grubhub+ benefits permanent with its Amazon Prime membership.

Previously, if you wanted takeout, you had to order and then pick it up. Today, it's as easy as placing an order on Amazon, and, with this feature on Amazon Prime, you don't have to pay more for this convenience.

Amazon initially offered Grubhub+ to Amazon Prime members in 2022 as a temporary benefit. The offer was subsequently extended. Now, the retail giant is making it a permanent part of its $139-a-year Amazon Prime subscription. What this means for you is that you can order takeout through Grubhub without paying a delivery fee on "qualifying orders."

If you are an Amazon Prime member but don't use this benefit, you can join through Amazon. Then, every year, your GrubHub+ membership (which Amazon says is "a $120 value") will automatically renew as long as your Amazon Prime membership remains active.

If you frequently deliver food, there are some benefits to signing up for a GrubHub+ membership. According to the announcement, the offer includes a $0 delivery fee "on qualifying orders over $12." It seems that all orders over $12 are eligible orders. You'll also see "lower service offerings, 5% rebate on pickup orders, and exclusive offers."

An example of an exclusive offer is $5 off your current order of $25 or more (only through June 2nd). But you'll need the discount code "PRIME5" to do that.

You can also order food directly from the Amazon app, which means you don't need to download another app to your device.

If you are not an Amazon Prime member, the new membership fee is $139/year or $14.99/month. If you want to test before committing, you can also take advantage of a 30-day free trial. Discounted rates are available to students and anyone receiving government aid.
