Though many restaurants and fast food spots have remained open during the coronavirus pandemic, the fact that millions of people are in complete lockdown mode means that many food establishments have seen business plummet over the past few weeks.

In an effort to boost business and encourage quarantined folks to order in, some fast food restaurants like McDonald’s and Subway have started offering free delivery promotions to users via apps like Grubhub, Uber Eats, Door Dash, Postmates, and others.

Some other national chains who are also offering free delivery deals include Chipotle, Taco Bell, and Del Taco. Though cutting the delivery fee for food orders may not seem like a lot, the charge can sometimes be as high as $6 depending on the restaurant in question and the food delivery app you’re using.

With McDonald’s in particular, it’s worth noting that the free delivery promotion only applies to orders on $15 and above. Chipotle, meanwhile, requires an order to hit a $10 threshold before the free delivery kicks in.
