Credit Cards with Free DoorDash DashPass

When we gave birth to our littlest one, we did it during the midst of Covid-19 pandemic when many states were experiencing lockdowns. The rules at our hospital were that I could only leave the floor once a day (or I couldn’t return without a negative PCR test) and the hospital cafeteria was closed. Also, there were no restaurants within a two mile walk so if I did leave, I’d have to get into the car, pay for parking, drive to get food, drive back, park, etc. It was going to be a huge headache.

The hospital accounted for this by offering me a meal from the kitchen. The food wasn’t bad but we were on the rear end of the delivery route and so the food was lukewarm by the time it made it to us.

Fortunately, we had a solution. DoorDash could deliver from several nearby locations and we were able to get a few takeout meals that really improved our stay.

One of the nice features of DoorDash is that you can get DashPass, a $9.99 per month fee, to avoid the delivery on orders over $12 (for eligible restaurants). What’s even nicer is that now a lot of credit cards offer this as a free benefit.
