If you have a Chase card branded as Sapphire, Freedom or Slate, you'll enjoy new card benefits, thanks to Chase's partnership with DoorDash. Chase announced last week that select cardholders will receive a complimentary DashPass subscription. DoorDash is a popular food delivery service serving dozens of cities in the U.S., Canada and Australia.
What is DashPass?
DashPass offers unlimited free delivery for any order over $12. A DashPass subscription normally costs $9.99 per month.
According to DoorDash, DashPass members save $4-$5 in delivery fees per order. The variety of restaurants ranges from small eateries to larger chains like The Cheesecake Factory, Chipotle and Burger King. Restaurants that are eligible for DashPass feature a blue checkmark next to their name.
Free DashPass subscription details
If you have the Chase Freedom®, Chase Freedom Unlimited®, Chase Freedom® Student or Chase Slate® cards, you’ll receive three months free. After that, you will be auto-enrolled for an additional nine months at a 50% discount, unless you cancel.

How to sign up for a free DashPass subscription
To take advantage of this new benefit, cardholders must register their eligible credit card as the default payment in the DoorDash app and activate their membership by Dec. 31, 2021. Cardholders can sign up and activate membership via the website or the DoorDash app.
Should you keep the subscription?
DoorDash is convenient for those with limited time who want food delivered to their door when hunger strikes. Given the delivery fee savings, DashPass could be worth keeping if you live in a city with multiple restaurants that you frequently order from. The service is not available in every city. And keep in mind that service fees can still be applied during busy periods, which may be irritating, especially during the free trial period.

If you typically order meals under $12 or don’t live in a city with restaurants that participate, keeping DashPass after the promo period may not be worth it since the delivery fee would not be waived.
