How Do I Get DoorDash Credits?
The most common way to get DoorDash credits is through using DashPass. You get DoorDash credits as you order food through DashPass instead of the normal DoorDash app. This allows you to get credits for every order according to how much you spent.
Another way that you can get DoorDash credits is through friend and family referrals. You can do this by sending a DoorDash link to your friends or family, and they can download the app from there.
Once they log into the app, you will be given DoorDash credits for having referred them.
Keep in mind that DoorDash has some restrictions on this, such as only getting credits once you refer 25 people to the DoorDash app. You also cannot post the link on Google, Twitter, or other larger sites to try to get more referrals.
These are the two ways that you can earn DoorDash credits that can be applied to your orders. This is a great way to save a little money if you frequently use DoorDash for orders.
The credits may be small, but they can add up fast.

What Can I Use DoorDash Credits For?
You can use your DoorDash credits for all of your DoorDash orders, the only limitation is that you can’t use them to buy alcohol.
You can only use your credits for food deliveries through the DoorDash app or the official website. These credits will be added to your account and applied at checkout so that they can be deducted from your order total.
You cannot specifically use your credits to pay for an order, this is done automatically by Doordash, not you. If your order is small, credits may cover it, but usually, they only deduct a little from your order total.
If your order contains any kind of alcoholic beverage, the credits will not be applied. They will be saved for later when you order something that doesn’t come with alcohol.
How Can I Use My DoorDash Credits?
You do not have to worry about trying to apply your DoorDash credits when you are making an order. These are not like a coupon, gift card, or a code that you have to manually enter to use.
DoorDash will apply all credits to qualifying orders automatically, using as many as you have available in your account. Though, these will not be added if your order contains any kind of alcoholic beverage.
You cannot manually add your credits to an order as you really do not need to. Any credits you have in your account will be deducted at checkout, giving you whatever reduced price is available depending on the number of credits that you have.
How Can I Check the Status of My DoorDash Credits?
You should be able to check the status of your credits by logging into the DoorDash app. It is easiest to do this on your phone as it may look different on other devices.
Once you are logged in, click on the Orders tab and then the Order History tab that it takes you to. Here you should see a page where your orders are kept.
You can go through the orders and see the receipt. This should show the credits used for that order and the amount deducted and your refund.
You will be refunded for any deductions that you get from your DoorDash credits. You can expect to get this money back within seven days at the latest, just keep in mind that these are business days, not over the weekend.

How Can I Get DoorDash Credits?
You can get DoorDash credits in two different ways, by using the DashPass to make your orders instead of the DoorDash app or website. The second way is to refer a friend or family member and get credits for doing this.
Though it is important to mention that you only get credits once you have referred 25 people to the DoorDash app. And you are not allowed to try to do this the easy way by posting your referral link on Twitter, Google, or any other website.

These credits will then be automatically applied to your next order and deduct a certain amount from it. You will get that amount refunded to your payment method within seven days.
You won’t be able to build up your collection of credits as they are spent each time you make an order. You cannot add or save them as DooreDash does this automatically for you.
