Several credit (and charge) cards offer statement credits for food delivery service purchases. In case you have one of these cards but didn’t know about those perks (or maybe need a reminder) or are on the fence about getting one, let’s check out five that’ll help you save money on food delivery.
American Express Gold Card
The American Express Gold Card gives members a monthly $10 if-used statement credit to use at specific food merchants including:
- The Cheesecake Factory
- Ruth’s Chris Steak House
- Participating Shake Shack locations
The credit does not roll over to the next month.
Keep in mind that the Amex Gold earns 4X Membership Rewards points on restaurant and dining purchases. So you’ll receive those MRs on top of your statement credit!
*The American Express Gold Card is a charge card, not a credit card.
Platinum Card from American Express
Members of the consumer/personal Platinum Card from American Express receive monthly $15 Uber Cash deposits into their Uber accounts. (December brings an extra $20, though, upping the Uber Cash deposit to $35).
The Uber Cash can be applied to Uber Eats orders!
Like the American Express Gold Card’s monthly credit, the Uber Cash deposits are if-used and disappear at the end of the month if you don’t use them.
Because the Amex Platinum earns 1X on restaurant and dining spend, pay the cash balance of your Uber Eats order with a card rewarding you for those purchases. Consider:
- Citi Prestige (5X)
- American Express Gold Card (4X)
- Chase Sapphire Reserve Card (3X)
- American Express Green Card (3X)
- Chase Sapphire Preferred Card (2X)
*The Platinum Card from American Express is a charge card, not a credit card.
Chase Sapphire Reserve
Plus, CSR members also receive a one-year DashPass membership for free.

Hilton Aspire Card
Through August 31, 2020, the Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card gives its members a nice perk: the annual $250 in Hilton resort statement credit applies toward U.S. restaurant purchases.
Through December 2020, supermarket and restaurant purchases count towards the Citi Prestige card’s $250 travel credit.

Statement credits for necessary purchases like food are fantastic. I wouldn’t mind seeing them expand to more cards!
