Postmates Promo Codes For Existing Users
Instead, you’ll need to use an alternate method to get money off Postmates deliveries in the future. There are a few different ways you can earn credit even after you’ve claimed your first deal:
1. Get Notified
One of the easiest ways to get discounts is to stay subscribed to email promotions and turn on push notifications from the app.
While Postmates promo codes for existing users aren’t as easily found on general coupon sites, the company is actually quite generous with promotions if you keep an eye out.
Depending on your location and order frequency, you may find yourself receiving weekly offers that are valid for about seven days or less.
These coupon codes can be applied using the same process for new user discount codes.
As long as you received an offer directly from Postmates, you should be eligible for the savings.
2. Find Restaurant-Provided Discounts
While Postmates doesn’t always have promo codes for existing users, you may be able to find discounts offered directly by the restaurants you want to order from.
To find these discounts, scroll down on your homepage until you find a “Daily Deals” section.
Here, you’ll be able to swipe through restaurants offering discounts in your area.
The deal will automatically be applied to your order total if your Postmates order is eligible.
Do keep in mind that daily deals are not available in every Postmates city.
3. Postmates Referral Program
Referrals are a big part of Postmates’ customer acquisition plan, so naturally, they’re willing to give you free delivery credits when you successfully invite friends or family members to the platform.
Currently, you can get $100 in delivery fee credit when your friend signs up with your referral code and places their first order.
Your friend will receive $100 in delivery credits, too.
To grab your Postmates referral code, tap the present icon on the upper right hand side of your app.
You should then see your referral code, which you can copy and share on your own or text to friends through the mobile app.
By default, every existing Postmates user has a referral code unique to their account.
To find it, tap on the profile icon in the upper left corner of your app.
Then, scroll down to select “Invite Friends, Get $100 Off”
(again, this dollar amount may change depending on the current promotion).
In this section, you’ll find your personalized Postmates promo code that you can share.
There are a variety of ways to share your code straight from the app, including text message, email, or social media.
Or, you can get creative and put your code on coupon sites or promote it on your blog.
Even better, you can share your referral code as many times as you would like.
This is a pretty big deal, as many other services will cap your earnings or credit once you refer a certain number of users.
If you refer a large number of users, you can save yourself a substantial amount on delivery fees.
4. Join Postmates Unlimited
Aside from the promo codes listed above, there’s also another ongoing promotion that can get you free Postmates delivery credit on every eligible order, plus more ways to get money off Postmates fees.
Postmates Unlimited, formerly known as Postmates Plus Unlimited, is a subscription program that gets members unlimited free delivery on orders over $10.
As a member, you even eliminate all small cart fees (usually $1.99 for orders under $12) and Blitz pricing (which increases prices during times of high demand).
A Postmates Unlimited membership costs $9.99 per month, or $99.99 per year for annual subscriptions.
In exchange for the subscription fee, Postmates Unlimited members receive some fantastic benefits, including:
- No delivery charge on all orders over $15.
- No surge pricing ever (surge pricing occurs during peak business hours, causing delivery fees to increase).
- Alcohol and groceries delivered in under 30 minutes for free, no matter the order size.
- More exclusive membership offers, including some based on location.
If you’re unsure if it’s worth it for you, you can get a seven-day free trial by tapping your profile picture icon, tapping “Get Unlimited Free Delivery,” and selecting “Try Free.”
You can cancel before the end of the trial period without getting charged, if you decide it’s not worth the cost.
You can try Postmates Unlimited for free by tapping “Try it Free” on this page.
5. Coupons Found Online
Last on our list of Postmates promo codes for existing users are random codes found online.
You can find potential codes on sites like RetailMeNot, Coupons.com, Amazon (weirdly enough), and other social media channels.
While some of these might occasionally work, most don’t work (especially not for existing users) and the website is just trying to earn your click.
Don’t fall for the trap.
You’ll just end up wasting time.
The only resource in this category that we can confidently recommend is Reddit.
If you visit the r/postmates subreddit, you can often find working promo codes and coupons to save on your Postmates orders.

More Ways to Save on Postmates
If you want to save without seeking discounts or committing to subscriptions, there are ways to save just by using Postmates’ built-in features wisely.
Here are two options you always have to cut your food delivery expenses without a Postmates promo code:
1. Choose Pickup
If you just want the convenience of ordering from your app and avoiding lines, you can save big on Postmates fees by ordering pick-up instead of delivery.
When you do so, your app will notify you as soon as your food is ready, so you can relax at home until it’s time to drive to the restaurant.
To order pick-up, simply tap on the “Pickup” tab at the top of the Postmates app and order from one of the restaurants that you see when scrolling down.
2. Join a Postmates Party
Free delivery is a year-round option when you order with a Postmates Party.
A Party is much like an UberPool for food.
When you order from a restaurant from the “Party” tab of your app, you’re ordering from the same restaurant as other locals in your area in real-time.
Your driver then picks all orders up and makes multiple stops en route to you, naturally lowering your costs.
In order to get free delivery from a Postmates Party, you do have to have a minimum order of $15 and order within five minutes.
After the five-minute time span is up, available restaurants will refresh and new options will be available.
