RBC Credit Cards: Get Your Free DoorDash DashPass Membership

RBC and DoorDash have partnered up to offer RBC cardholders a complimentary DoorDash DashPass membership with unlimited $0 delivery fees and access to member-only benefits. 

Eligible RBC cardholders may benefit from a free DashPass membership for a three- or 12-month period, depending on their card tier.

This collaboration is very similar to the ongoing Aeroplan and Uber Eats partnership, in which Aeroplan co-branded cardholders can register for a complimentary three-, six-, or 12-month Uber Pass membership through September 2022. 

What Is DoorDash DashPass?

DoorDash DashPass is a monthly subscription service that rewards frequent DoorDash users with  members-only promotions and benefits. DashPass benefits include:

  • $0 delivery fees on restaurant deliveries over $12 and grocery store deliveries over $25
  • 10% off DoorDash subtotals through reduced service fees
  • 5% DoorDash credit back on pickup orders from eligible restaurants

In Canada, members are typically charged a fee of $9.99/month for DoorDash DashPass; however, RBC cardholders are eligible to activate a one-time free DashPass membership for either three or 12 months, depending on their card.

Which RBC Credit Cards Are Eligible?

There are a total of 26 eligible RBC credit cards that allow you to access the free DoorDash DashPass membership.

The following higher-end credit cards are eligible for a free 12-month DashPass membership:

Meanwhile, the following RBC credit cards are eligible for a three-month free DashPass membership:

  • Signature RBC Rewards Visa
  • RBC Visa Platinum
  • RBC Visa Cash Back
  • RBC Cash Back Mastercard
  • RBC Visa Classic Low Rate Option
  • RBC Visa Classic
  • RBC Student Visa Classic
  • RBC Visa Classic II Student
  • RBC Visa Gold

Activate Your Free DashPass Membership

Activating the free DashPass membership is fairly simple, and can be done by following these steps:

  1. Open your DoorDash app (or download the app and register). 
  2. Add your eligible RBC credit card to your DoorDash account – this can be done in the account settings.
  3. You will be redirected to an activation page, and can now activate your complimentary DashPass subscription.

Keep in mind, if you’re already subscribed to DashPass, you’ll need to unsubscribe and subscribe again with an eligible RBC credit card, then activate the free DashPass offer. 

Furthermore, if you remove your RBC credit card prematurely, you can resubscribe at a later time and still receive the DashPass Benefits for the remainder of the benefit period.

After your free membership period ends, you’ll automatically be billed at the default DashPass pricing of $9.99/month, unless you proactively cancel or remove your eligible RBC credit card from the DoorDash app.

It’s also worth noting that DashPass subscriptions purchased through third parties, including third-party payment accounts or online or mobile digital wallets like Apple Pay and Google Pay, are not eligible for the complimentary DashPass offer. 

Registration Window

The complimentary DashPass membership is a one-time offer from RBC and DoorDash, and is only available for enrollment until July 5, 2023, regardless of which RBC credit card you hold.

The benefits will begin on the date you subscribe to DashPass with your eligible RBC credit card and end either three or 12 months from that date, depending on your card tier. 

As long as the activation is completed by the offer deadline, the three- or 12-month durations will apply to your DoorDash DashPass membership going forward.

And if you don’t currently have an RBC credit card, you can apply for a new card and use it to activate the corresponding DashPass offer anytime before July 5, 2023. 

(Note that the time horizon of RBC and DoorDash’s partnership is far longer than the Aeroplan co-branded credit cards’ Uber Pass membership, which needs to be activated by September 8, 2022. So if you aren’t fussy about which delivery service you use, you might consider finishing up your Uber Pass membership first before activating your free DoorDash DashPass for continued savings.)

One Three-Month and 12-Month Offer Per DoorDash Account

Each DoorDash account is limited to up to two free memberships: one free three-month membership and one free 12-month membership per account, even if you hold multiple eligible RBC credit cards in each tier.

Therefore, if you do hold two cards across the different tiers, it would be optimal to activate a three-month membership, and on the last day of your third month, activate a new 12-month membership with your higher-tier credit card. This would allow you to receive a total of 15 months of $0 delivery fees with DoorDash DashPass.

Additionally, multiple cards and multiple accounts will work just fine, too. So if you and your partner both hold eligible RBC credit cards, it would be advantageous to activate the second account once the first account’s benefits expire.

For example, a household that frequently orders delivery might consider the following strategy: 

  • Use a higher-end RBC credit card to activate one 12-month free DashPass membership on your own DoorDash account
  • Then, use another higher-end RBC credit card to activate a second 12-month free DashPass membership on your spouse’s DoorDash account one year from now 

With two RBC credit cards with 12-month DashPass memberships in the household, you could enjoy $0 delivery fees, savings on service fees, and access to member-only DoorDash benefits through early 2024.


Eligible RBC cardholders can sign up for free access to a DoorDash DashPass membership with $0 delivery fees for three or 12 months, depending on their card tier. 

If you frequently use delivery services, you’ll certainly want to activate your DashPass membership and take advantage of this offer for a decent cash savings – although you may wish to wait until your free Uber Pass membership with an Aeroplan credit card expires before taking advantage of RBC and DoorDash’s longer time horizon.

What’s more, cardholders with two cards across two tiers can activate the three- and 12-month memberships one after the other, and households with multiple RBC credit cards can activate their offers in sequence and get up to two years of $0 delivery fees by activating a second membership once the first approaches its expiry date.

    They also had a 75% off x 2 promo as well but then pulled it.
    If you call in after making and order and refer to this promo, they will give you 75% as a credit.
