Winter meal delivery deals are popping up, and you can score as much as 75% off healthy meal kits and take a few things off your weekly to-do list. There are also prepared-meal subscriptions with huge discounts on ready-to-eat food that's delivered straight to your door. Grocery services such as Thrive Market have discounts to peruse, as do some of our favorite meat delivery services and snack box subscriptions

We've done some math and meal delivery can save you over shopping at the grocery store, even without these super sales. Blue Apron and EveryPlate both have recipes that cost less than if you were to buy all the ingredients. Take advantage of one of these deals and your savings will only multiply.

Best meal kit and prepared meal delivery deals

bokksu.png
Bokksu

Bokksu is our favorite snack box subscription, specializing in sweet and savory treats from Japan. You don't have to subscribe to get the brand's best eats in your hands. Bokksu recently launched a full online market stocked with specialty candy, chips, cakes, crackers, tea and soda.

Score some of Bokksu's best snacks or bundles of favorites at up to 75%. This premium snack box, normally $50, is down to just $12.50 during the sale. Or snatch a package of strawberry Kit-Kats for 22% off. 

several daily harvest meals in glamour shot
Daily Harvest

Daily Harvest sells easy-prep vegan meals, including smoothies, grain bowls, flatbreads and soups. It's one of the healthier meal delivery services and it's also rather affordable, with most meals clocking in under $10. There's also no subscription necessary if you want to give it a quick tryout. 

The deal: Try the service for the first time and Daily Harvest will knock as much as $60 off an order of 24 meals with code FRUITVEG.

every plate box and two meals
EveryPlate

You won't see a ton of haute cuisine in EveryPlate's weekly menu, but there are plenty of satisfying dinners for the cold weather ahead. I tried its pork sloppy joes and the chicken and linguine in a tomato cream sauce. All the meals I made were great, easy to prepare and light on the wallet. Read our EveryPlate review.

The dealEveryPlate is already our pick as the best meal kit service for families on a budget, but it's bordering on ridiculously cheap when you sign up now. Depending on the meal plan you choose, you'll score up to 72% off of EveryPlate's already cheap meal kits when you try them in February. That's between $1.49 and $2 per serving depending on the plan you choose. 

purple-carrot
Purple Carrot

For those eating plant-based or looking to add more vegetarian recipes to the weekly menu, Purple Carrot is the service to try. I tried Purple Carrot's meat-free meal kits, and all the recipes I made were a huge hit, earning it a CNET Editors' Choice award.

The deal: In a fairly rare sale, Purple Carrot is offering $100 off spread across your first four deliveries with code ROUTINE100.

hello fresh box surrounded by ingredients
HelloFresh

HelloFresh has more total meal kit selections than any other service and most of them are pretty easy to prepare. You can check out my deep-dive review of HelloFresh to learn more about the easy meal delivery service. 

The deal: HelloFresh is offering a signup deal worth 18 free servings spread across nine boxes -- so, you'll have to commit to more than two months. You'll also get free shipping on the first box and a free breakfast item in each box for life.

steak offer from butcher box website
ButcherBox

ButcherBox isn't exactly a meal delivery service, but you can certainly make some excellent meals with what this online butcher service sends in its monthly boxes. ButcherBox is a meat subscription service specializing in Australian grass-fed beef, although you can also have heritage pork, wild salmon and organic chicken in your delivery, depending on the subscription you pick.

I did the math and ButcherBox's premium meat delivery is cheaper than if you were to buy similar high-end cuts at a grocery store. Read our full ButcherBox review here.

The deal: Get your choice of 3 pounds of organic chicken thighs, 2 pounds of ground beef or 1 pound of steak tips in each box for a year.

It doesn't get any easier than Factor's prepared meals -- just heat and eat. Most of Factor's weekly menu options are healthy and low-carb or low-calorie so you can kick this month off on the right foot. 

The deal: Save a total of $256 off your first five weeks of Factor meals when you sign up in February. Read our full Factor review here.

dinnerly meal kit
Dinnerly

Dinnerly is one of the cheapest meal delivery services even without a discount code. The quick and easy Meal kit company sends all the fixings for hearty and healthy meals, and the price comes to about $6 a serving for the cheapest plan. Read our full Dinnerly review.

The deal: If you take advantage of Dinnerly's most popular discount voucher, it'll slash the cost of your first five boxes, starting with 37% off your first delivery with free shipping, 40% off your second and 29% off the third. 

seared tuna over soba noodles on plate
Brandy Yowell

Gobble is quite similar to the other services, except that many items come already chopped, peeled, marinated and so on -- which can save you some prep time. The two meals I received, Yankee pot roast and cacio e pepe, were terrific. Dinner prices are normally a flat $12 per serving, so you do pay a bit extra for that convenience.

The deal: Gobble will send your first six meal kits for $36 total. That's about as cheap as you'll find high-end meal kits anywhere. For more, read our Gobble review.

blue apron steak meal
Blue Apron

Blue Apron is still the best meal kit service after more than 10 years in the business. The meal kits on each weekly menu include tender steaks and fresh seafood recipes and can be had for under $10 per serving, which is often cheaper than if you bought the groceries yourself. Read our full Blue Apron review here.

The deal: Blue Apron has a massive deal for new customers that amounts to $110 off spread out across your first five orders, plus free shipping on the very first. 

cookunity
CookUnity

Of all the prepared-meal services I've tried, CookUnity was right up there in the top two or three with a massive selection and a high overall hit rate. Many of the menu offerings have been created by restaurant chefs and cooking personalities such as Einat Admony (Taïm, Balaboosta), John DeLucie (Waverly Inn, Lumaca) and Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

The deal: The service is a little pricey, but if you sign up to try CookUnity and use promo code CNET30 it'll knock 30% off the first order. That means meals as cheap as $7, depending on the total number you order. Read our CookUnity review.

fresh-n-lean
Fresh N Lean

This signup offer is for one the best meal healthy delivery services we've tried. Fresh N Lean has nutritious meals that are tasty and a subscription won't totally break the bank, with some meal plans clocking in at around $9 a serving. Want to see how much I liked it? Read our Fresh N Lean review.

The deal: Sign up now for any Fresh N Lean plan (offerings include keto, protein plus, vegan, Mediterranean and Whole30) and new customers will get $25 off their first box of Fresh N Lean meals. 

good chop meats
Good Chop

Good Chop has the chops -- pork, specifically -- along with excellent cuts of beef, organic chicken and a range of seafood options. Good Chop is a subscription meat delivery service with shipments starting at $149 per month for 36 portions of quality meat. You can try it for much cheaper than that. 

The deal: If you're new to Good Chop and want to give the service a trial run, we've got an exclusive offer for CNET readers worth a whopping $120 off across your first four deliveries. You can pause or cancel your Good Chop subscription at any time.

3 Green Chef Meals in paper bags
David Watsky/CNET

Green Chef has some of the best healthy meal kits we've tried, using largely organic produce and ethically raised meats. Green Chef is a little more per serving than other meal kits, but you'll taste it in the final dish. Full review of Green Chef here.

The deal: Save 60% off your first box and around 20% off the subsequent four deliveries. For an average-sized plan, you'll save $250 across your first nine boxes.

ModifyHealth

Another of our favorite healthy delivery services is ModifyHealth. The company is a great option for those with digestive issues and offers dozens of healthy meals for those keeping to a low-FODMAP, gluten-free, low-carb or heart-friendly diet. And the meals are ready to go so you can just heat them and eat them right away, prep-free. Options start at just $10 per serving. Read the full review here.

The deal: Readers who sign up now can get 15% off their first order when they use promo code Thrive15 at checkout.

What are the best online meal delivery deals right now?

If it's the lowest possible cost, EveryPlate, HelloFresh, Purple Carrot and Gobble will send meal kits that are ready to cook, with some clocking in at under $2 a serving. Other popular prepared-meal services such as CookUnity and Fresh N Lean are ready to send premade, ready-to-eat dinners to your doorstep, at per-serving prices that are far cheaper than takeout. 

So which meal delivery service is the best?

Dinners come together faster with help from meal kits.

I've tried most of them and they're all solid, with differences to consider depending on your budget, diet, taste and kitchen skill level. You can check out CNET's roundups of the best meal kit delivery services and best healthy food delivery services for a more detailed taste. Remember, nearly all of these meal kit companies let you pause or cancel anytime, so the risk and commitment when signing up for a meal kit service is minimal.

Whether you're looking for ways to eat healthily, learn to cook new recipes or just make fewer trips to the grocery store this summer, a healthyversatile and budget-friendly meal delivery deal can help you do it on the cheap.

These offers were valid at the time of publication, but they can end at any time and may be restricted by geography and other cookie-based conditions in your browser. If you don't see a deal populate, try in a new window or private browser. In the meantime, if you've already tried one or more of these, tell me which ones and what you liked or didn't like.

My advice: Take advantage of each and every one of these offers (making sure to pause or cancel after, unless you want to continue). You can see which service you like best and get super cheap takeout-style meals for weeks at a time.

Is it easy to cancel a meal delivery service?

Virtually all of the services we tried allow you to pause or cancel any time just in case you don't love it, so there's almost no risk after the deal is up. Although you may have to unsubscribe from their email blasts. Most brands just want you to try out the meals and see if you dig them and those brands are willing to make it very easy (and cheap) to do that. To make things easier, we already tried the top meal kits and meal delivery services so you'll know exactly what to expect and you can pick the best food delivery deal for you and your tastes.
