Getting food delivered is always a treat. Whether you don’t feel like cooking, are in a hurry, or just want to mix up your regular dinner routine, delivery is there for you. These days, food delivery from your favorite restaurants is even easier than ever with the host of food delivery apps available.
Delivery isn’t free, though, and the costs can add up quickly. Wouldn’t it be great if there were a way to get food delivered without having to pay extra fees? This is where promo codes come in.
In this post, we’re going to look at the promo code options available for Caviar, a food delivery app that focuses on high-end restaurants. We’ll explore what coupon codes are available, show you where to find them, and take a look at some of the restaurants where you can use them.
What Is Caviar?
If you’re not familiar with the service, Caviar is a food delivery app that focuses on delivery from high-end restaurants. Unlike with Uber Eats or Postmates, you won’t find McDonald’s or Chipotle on Caviar’s list. Instead, you’ll find exclusive partnerships with some of the best restaurants in your city.
This doesn’t mean that every restaurant on Caviar costs a fortune; there are some budget options available as well. The focus, however, is on distinctive, gourmet food. For a full review of the service, check out our introduction to Caviar delivery.
What Caviar Coupon Codes Are Available?
The majority of Caviar promo codes are for new customers of the service. You get a code from either a friend or a website, type it in when you sign up for Caviar, and get a discount off your first order. For instance, as a reader of this blog, you can get $10 off your first order of $50 or more by entering the code POOLDAY when you sign up for the app.
There are also coupon codes available other places. For instance, some restaurants will have flyers advertising Caviar. These flyers often contain promo codes that you can use. Caviar will also run their own promos from time to time, which can offer you additional discounts even if you’ve already placed your first order.
Finally, you can get discounts on your orders by referring others to the app. When someone signs up for the app and places an order using your link, they’ll receive a discount of $10 on each of their first two orders. In exchange, you’ll get $20 to use for your next order. We’ll get more into this later.
How to Apply Caviar Promo Codes
Assuming you have a Caviar promo code, how do you go about redeeming it? The first step is to add some items to your cart. Once you’ve done that, you can proceed to checkout. There, you’ll see the option to add a promo code, as you can see below in this screenshot from the mobile app:
Tap where it says “Have a promo code?” and then type the promo code into the field provided. After that, just tap “Apply” to use the code for your order.
Note that the promo code will only apply to the cost of your order before taxes or service charges. This means you can’t actually get orders delivered for free, no matter how much you have in promos. But it does help offset the cost.
How to Refer Others to Caviar
We mentioned that you can get Caviar credit by referring friends to the Caviar app, but how do you do that? You’ll first need to find your unique referral link. To do that, open the app and tap on your profile picture:
Then, tap where it says “Refer a friend, get $20” (note that the referral amount may differ depending on your city).
Finally, you’ll see the different options available to share your code:

Caviar Promo Code FAQ
Here are answers to a few common questions about Caviar promo codes:
1. Can I use more than one promo code per order?
No, you’re limited to using one promo code for each individual order.
2. Do Caviar promo codes expire?
Typically, Caviar promo codes expire after 30 days. Some promotions are more limited, however, so be sure you’ve verified that a code isn’t expired before you use it. Your unique referral link never expires.
3. Do promo codes apply to the order’s delivery fee?
Yes, they do, meaning it is possible to get free delivery in some cases. However, they will not apply to the service charge or taxes for an order. So, for example, if you placed an order that was $50 but also included $10 in tax and a $5 service charge, you’d only be able to get discounts on the $50 amount. No matter your amount of promo credit, you’d still pay a minimum of $15.
4. Does Caviar offer gift cards?
Yes, they do. You can purchase gift cards for $25, $50, $100, and $150. Gift cards never expire, and you can use them for any Caviar order. Learn more here.
