Get free Deliveroo Plus Silver status if you have Amazon Prime

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

If you have the American Express Preferred Rewards Gold card, you will be benefitting from 2 x £5 monthly credits towards Deliveroo orders. This is worth £120 per year if used in full.

If you are using Deliveroo, whether or not you have Amex Gold, it has teamed up with Amazon Prime for a special offer.

Whilst this offer was well publicised when it launched 18 months ago, I’ve not seen it mentioned since. It does still work – see the Amazon website here.

Deliveroo Plus Silver status for free with Amazon Prime

Via this link, Amazon Prime members receive 12 months of free membership to Deliveroo Plus Silver. Once you are signed up, you will not pay delivery fees on orders of £25+.

Added to the £5 cashback you receive per order (up to two per month) from American Express Preferred Rewards Gold and it makes Deliveroo very competitive.

Looked at the other way, of course, if you currently pay for Deliveroo Plus Silver but don’t have Amazon Prime, you could treat this as a (£3.49 x 12) £41.88 discount on your first year of Prime. You can sign up for Prime here.

To be clear, this is not a ‘have a free trial and then start paying the full price’ offer. The T&C are clear that you simply lose your status after a year if the partnership is not extended. You don’t suddenly wake up one day to find yourself paying £3.49 per month for Deliveroo Plus Silver.

To quote:

You will not be auto-renewed into a paid Deliveroo Plus subscription at the end of the offer unless you are switching to this offer from an existing Deliveroo Plus subscription. In the latter case, you will be switched back to your original Deliveroo Plus subscription at the end of the offer.

If you currently pay £7.99 for Deliveroo Plus Gold (free delivery on orders of £10+) you will stop paying if you take up this offer but will drop down to Deliveroo Plus Silver (free delivery on orders of £25+). You will return to Gold status – and start paying again – after 12 months or whenever the Amazon Prime deal ends, whichever is later.

The T&C for the Amazon Prime offer are here if you want to find out more.

    Deliveroo Plus Silver, Deliveroo Plus Gold?
    I have never before heard of silver, gold (or any other level) of Deliveroo plus. There has only been Deliveroo or Deliveroo Plus. Even today, the website only mentions Deliveroo or Deliveroo Plus, no mention of silver or gold (or platinum or diamond or titanium or sapphire …)

    • Rob says:

      The terms imply that some people are not offered all products.

    • Rhys says:

      What website are you looking at?!

      • Doug says:

        Yep, that’s the one.
        I guess, as you say, not all products are offered to everyone.
        Or, maybe, some products are geofenced?

          I see both too!

          If you already have it then it doesn’t show the pricing

  • LittleNick says:

    It is a shame you can’t pay just the price difference between Deliveroo Silver and Gold if you have it linked to your amazon prime.

  • flyforfun says:

    I’ve been so disappointed when I use Deliveroo et al. Meals lukewarm most of the time. I have a regular pan-Asian restaurant I often use and I can order on their direct website and it can arrive within 20 mins still hot. I’ve compared prices and it’s cheaper to go direct rather than via the delivery sites.

      I’m a manager of a restaurant that has a high proportion of Ubereats orders. I certainly wouldn’t waste my money on any of them.

    • jjoohhnn says:

      That works if the place you order from offer direct delivery. The majority of places on Deliveroo tend to be restaurants that don’t otherwise offer delivery. Heat has always been a problem on any food delivery from anywhere. I make sure the oven is hot by the time the food arrives.

    • John says:

      Deliveroo has been a catastrophe in St Albans for many months. No rider; rider cancelled; rider tires of waiting and leaves restaurant; rider collects wrong order; rider delayed doing multiple drops; spilled noodle soup dishes; always cold food. It’s just not worth it.

  • Damian says:

    The exact mechanism of redeeming isn’t clear.

  • Dror says:

    When I signed up, my Deliveroo account says: “Your subscription will not auto-renew after 18 Sep 2023.” Did anyone else get just six months free…?
