We all know that you can earn your credit card bonus category spend with common food delivery services like GrubHub and UberEats. And Rakuten has off and on had a cashback bonus for UberEats.
Now, the various airline dining portals that use Rewards Network are offering a great new way to get those miles when you order in – with a side benefit of actually costing the restaurant less in fees (although, sure, calling them directly will save them the most – no doubt).
This new way to earn miles for delivery meals uses ChowNow as their partner. It’s got way less restaurants on the service than GrubHub or UberEats, etc, but they do charge restaurants a lot less meaning that, in many cases, the prices will be lower for you here, too. If you have ever thought a restaurant’s prices seem higher on DoorDash or UberEats, it’s likely because they charge more on those menus to recoup the fees.
While it’s Alaska Airline’s dining portal that I’m linked to, it should work for all of the airline dining programs. You’ll earn the same rate of miles per $ as if you were dining in the restaurant. And in some cases, the restaurant may ONLY offer miles for delivery and not dine-in, so double check.
And always be sure to use a credit card that offers bonus categories for dining / restaurants / food delivery services.
You can find the dining portal for your preferred airline here.
