Delivery only - it's an okay deal but $5 doesn't get you far on these apps.

Service fees, delivery fees, tips, plus the fact that menu item prices are inflated to make up for the high % these apps charge back to the restaurant. A few restaurants I go to have all menu items 20-25% more expensive on Skip/Uber Eats/etc.

A lot of it will depend on location. I have a lot of places near me still offering free delivery

What service fees? Sort by free delivery and you only have to pay for tip. Also never seen a 25% premium on menu items in Calgary. Maybe just an ok deal for you but good for most. Thanks op.

Food is definitely pricer in the skip app compared to restaurants in store. I've done pickup twice now to two different places and noticed that the price I paid on both occasions was higher than the restaurant food itself. When I asked skip about this they said that the restaurants are free to set their own pricing and can set it to whatever they'd like.

I imagine some restaurants see a promo like this and decide to jack up their prices, or remove the free delivery like others have mentioned.

Shitty practice

When I asked a couple of restaurants about it, they told me that skip/just-eat were charging some outrageous fee, like 20% to sell the food through them. So, the owners said they have to increase prices or they'd make a lot less/lose money. You can always call the place directly and order from them...like every single place that does pick up will take a phone order and they'll charge you their regular prices.
