There’s a new Grubhub and Seamless Amex Offer available on some cards which is giving $5 back when spending $20 or more. If you find this offer on an Amex Gold card, it’ll stack nicely with the $10 monthly dining benefit.
- Spend $20 or more in a single purchase at Grubhub or Seamless & get $5 back with an Amex Offer.
- Expires November 25, 2020.
- Offer valid online only at Grubhub.com or Seamless.com, or through the Grubhub or Seamless app.
- Excludes corporate card transactions, purchases of electronic gift cards or physical gift cards bought online.
- Offer is non-transferable.
- Limit of 2 statement credits (total of $10 back) per Card Member.
There are a couple of nice features of this Grubhub / Seamless Amex Offer in addition to the $5 statement credit.
First, it can be done twice for a total of $10 back. Based on my recent experience with the Walmart/Target Amex Offer, spending $40 in one transaction should trigger both statement credits, rather than having to spend $20 twice in separate transactions.
Second, this offer pairs beautifully with the $10 monthly dining benefit on the Amex Gold card. You can earn the $10 statement credit from the dining benefit when ordering food from Grubhub or Seamless, so spending $20 will get you both the $10 from the dining benefit and the $5 from this new Amex Offer.
Seeing as both the dining benefit and Amex Offer are triggered by the amount spent on the card, it means the cost of delivery fees, taxes, tip, etc. can all be included in that total spend amount.
Don’t forget to click through to Grubhub or Seamless from a shopping portal (those are links to Cashback Monitor to compare rates), but be sure to check the terms of the portals as some only offer cashback/rewards on your first order. Some portals do offer cashback/rewards to return customers though, such as TopCashback and Rakuten.
There might be a separate Amex Offer giving 1 bonus Membership Rewards point for every dollar spent at Grubhub and Seamless.
Also be sure to check the ‘Perks’ tab in the app as some of your local restaurants might give you an additional discount or free delivery. Read more about how Grubhub Perks works here. If a restaurant gives you an additional $5 to spend in the app, it means you could place a $25 order (including taxes and fees) and get $5 back from the restaurant, $10 from the Amex Gold card and $5 from this new Grubhub/Seamless Amex Offer for a net cost of only $5. Add on ~2% cashback from a shopping portal and that’s reduced to $4.50 which is a tasty deal.
