Where to Find the Best Promo Codes for Food Delivery

By Danielle Wirsansky on May 23, 2018

Having food delivered to you is a high rising trend, especially among college students. College students are busy, busy people. With school, work, and studying, who has time to go out to eat? And where would you even go to get food at 3 AM after leaving the library from an all-night cram session for your midterm?

Many college students who live on campus often do not have their own form of transportation, so food delivery has opened a world of possibilities. But just because having food delivered to you is easier than going to a restaurant does not mean that it is any cheaper than going to a restaurant too. And if college students are known for one thing, it is that they are usually perpetually broke. So how can you take advantage of this life-changing convenience without breaking the bank? Read on to learn where to find the best promo codes for food delivery.



RetailMeNot is the ultimate savings destination, connecting millions of consumers to the retailers, brands and restaurants they love—both online and in-store. With a presence in North America, the United Kingdom and France, we help drive engagement and sales for more than 70,000 brands internationally.

“From the best digital promotions and discount eGift cards to quick cash back offers and dining discounts, our teams are dedicated to innovating new solutions that drive ROI for our brand partners, satisfy our consumers and create the best workplace environment for our employees.”

RetailMeNot offers a plethora of coupon codes for a myriad of different kind of products, but they are especially proficient at finding and providing coupon codes for food delivery. What is especially helpful is that with each coupon code, you can see how many people have used that code that day which shows you that the code is active and working. Many sites have dummy coupon codes that do not really work, and then you have given them your email address and made an account with them for nothing (except for the spammy emails you will probably get afterward).

RetailMeNot will also offer coupon codes for particular delivery services like UberEats AND local restaurants in your area that deliver their own food, so you get the best of both worlds and a much larger pool of restaurants to choose to get your food delivered from.


“It doesn’t take living in a box to build your wealth…. In today’s age, there’s a ton of ways to save money, but there’s another million that can take your money away. I’m here to sort the two. Fortunately, I’ve compiled all the ins-and-outs of how to save your money to the maximum by living on the frugal side. I’m a firm believer that everyone should have the ability to obtain enough money to have a sense of financial freedom in their lives while at the same time enjoying life’s greatest pleasures, such as traveling, dining out and not being stressed about your finances.”-FrugalForLess

What is nice about FrugalForLess is that the author provides visitors to the website with personal knowledge, advice, and tidbits about the coupon codes they are providing, which makes the experience smoother and oddly more comforting.

The lists are customized, so you can find the kind of coupons and discounts that apply to your specific situation. For example, there is a list of food delivery services that will deliver food to your door and will give you a discount on your first order. Then each service is broken down and described, the coupon detailed, and links to reviews of the service and how to sign up for it provided so that you do not have to do any of the work for yourself. It makes the process of finding and using coupon codes for food delivery (and other) services a much more streamlined process.

Another great way to get coupon codes is to sign up for or get a membership with a food delivery service that you prefer and then actually read the email blasts that they send out, because they almost always have coupon codes for you to use. Why waste effort combing the internet and trying and testing out coupon codes, praying they work, when you can get the promo code from the source itself?

These organizations want repeat customers and they reward the customers that support them by using their services and joining their membership lists. Do not ignore these freely given and easily obtained coupon codes!

Your Friends

You can always ask for coupon codes from your friends as well. If you are not sure about using a particular service or never have before and want to give it a try, but maybe at a discounted rate for the first time since you are not sure what the quality of service will be, you can ask your friends that are already use or are signed up for the service for coupon codes instead.

These services often rely heavily on word of mouth and good reviews. They want their customers to help spread the word and often have reward systems and referral links, where if an established customer shares their link to a friend when then uses the link or coupon code to try out the service, both the original customer and the new customer get a discount. Do not be shy, because often both the giver and you, as the receiver, will be rewarded for trying out the coupon code too!
