TORONTO, July 6, 2021 /CNW/ - Today, Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) and DoorDash, a leading last-mile logistics platform, announced a joint initiative which offers RBC credit cardholders a complimentary DashPass subscription for up to 12 months. With DashPass, DoorDash's subscription program, customers receive $0 delivery fees and reduced service fees on eligible orders*, plus other perks at participating stores when they order on-demand delivery and pickup from restaurants across Canada.

"We know that many of our clients enjoy on-demand food delivery, so we're excited to team up with DoorDash to offer this exclusive savings to our credit cardholders," said Niranjan Vivekanandan, Senior Vice-President, Loyalty & Merchant Solutions, RBC. "We are always looking for new and creative ways to provide our clients with more value and this is a benefit that so many of them can take advantage of simply by being a credit cardholder."

Starting today, eligible RBC credit cardholders can activate this new benefit to receive either a 3 or 12 month complimentary DashPass subscription depending on which credit card they hold**. RBC clients with a credit card eligible for the 12 month benefit can save up to $120 in monthly subscription fees, in addition to unlocking other perks, including $0 delivery fees on eligible orders of $12 or more when they pay with their eligible RBC credit card. All Avion credit cards and the WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard are among those eligible for 12 months of complimentary DashPass.

When subscribed to DashPass, customers receive:

  • More Savings: Save an average of $4$5 per order and earn 5% back in DoorDash credit on eligible pickup orders***.
  • Exclusive Deals: Access to exclusive DoorDash promotions.
