Have we discussed mail-order meals?

I wanted to order Mom a week of meals as a Christmas present, so I started just trying to see who ships here, and it seems like everyone does, plus some of them offer discounts for public servants through, which is how I log into the VA.
SunBasket offers a military discount through GovX.
I didn't sign up with GovX just to see what the discount was.
One of them had a student discount, but only a student discount.
Freshly only provides single servings--for $10 each.
I don't know about other discounts. I have Capital One and Honey installed, but the one time that I clicked on the button to search coupon codes it got me a worse deal.
Many of these offer flat discounts, so a small weekly plan is disproportionately cheaper than larger ones.

These are the best prices-per-serving, without looking for additional deals:
SunBasket wants $147.68 for 12 servings.
HelloFresh wants $75.52 for 24 servings.
Blue Apron wants $12.96 for your first 4 servings.
EveryPlate wants $17.88 for 12 servings.

They show you what they are sending you next, but one said they were sending my first box on December 23rd, and I couldn't change it.
We are driving down for Christmas. We can't wait until 2000!
I tried to sign up for the cheapest three, they just wanted a couple dollars per serving.

For one I was able to click on the second week and cancel, but for the other two I couldn't approve the first week and then when I canceled it canceled everything.

I tried to go back and just get the one week, but I needed to reset my password and enter my credit card information again.

I don't know which one is still supposed to send us food.

Hello Fresh shows up in my bank activity, but that may change.
