DoorDash is extending its cash back program for delivery drivers to help alleviate the high price of gas.
DoorDash’s Gas Rewards program will extend through August. Dashers with a DasherDirect business prepaid Visa card will still qualify for 10% cash back on their gas purchases.
DoorDash launched its Gas Rewards program in March. Nearly 74% of Dashers surveyed rated the program as excellent or good, and they’ve saved an average of $0.42 per gallon at the pump on every visit using a DasherDirect card.
On average, per hour, over 8,600 Dashers save on gas with 10% cash back through DasherDirect, the company said.
“Going to the gas station has become a stressful part of my week,” said Michelle Ronca, a Dasher from Palm Springs. “But over the past month, with 10% cash back on gas through my DasherDirect card, the trip has become significantly less daunting. Not only do I keep more of my earnings from dashing, but I’m also saving on costs related to other parts of my daily life, like driving to work or picking up groceries. At the end of the day, this means I have more money in my pocket to spend on the things that matter to me.”
Once approved, Dashers can apply for DasherDirect to get rewards including 10% cash back on gas, among other perks.
