It looks like there are barely any restaurants to order from these days, and then many of them flat out refuse to deliver because Tasteaway isn't paying them. It's no wonder that they initially list pick up options instead of the delivery options, because as soon as I click delivery only, most of the restaurants disappear, and I have a few options to pick stuff up from restaurants that aren't even remotely close to me. Anyway, thanks for sharing OP.

Technically speaking, it's 30% off and 30x points (which is similar to 15% in store credit). Which means the total savings, assuming your able to use your credit, is 40.5%, since you would only collect points on the amount paid.

Interesting. I was under the impression that the points are calculated on the total amount before the discount.

TheAccountant is correct. Points are calculated based on amount paid after the discount. I've ordered through Tasteaway many times. It takes forever to accumulate points that are actually worth a decent amount to obtain a free meal but nonetheless, some loyalty points is better than none.

Also to add to that, the credit values are substantially reduced (if you were to use a 40% coupon on your next order, the credit would apply to the balance first and the remaining amount on the order would receive the 40% off).

Don't get me wrong - these 30-40% deals are amazing for us but not a sustainable business model. They can't afford to always hold these promotions, (i.e. make $30, and pay the restaurant $50).
You can see this in what ElHoardo said, which is absolutely correct, my restaurant list is down to maybe 5 restaurants (all pizza and curry). The last time I ordered, the restaurant personally called me to apologize that they couldn't accept it the order because Tasteaway hasn't paid them and hasn't responded or answered calls for 2 weeks.

If you have any credits left, I suggest you use them up - looks like a sinking ship.

a few other restaurants have stopped their services through them once they realized they were getting screwed over. TA is running these kind of discounts almost non-stop now. must be trying to grab as much cash as they can before they close up shop.

TasteAway must be getting a lot of feedback regarding the lack of restaurants. I was all excited when I saw Popeye's again, only to find the status is "open later". That's when I kept a closer eye and scrolled, only to see almost every restaurant says "open later". Previously it would exclude these restaurants... It's worst now that there's lots of restaurants listed but you can't order from them.

The ship is sinking fast! Never seen them re-up a promotion on a Sunday before. It used to be only 10% on weekends and you'd get the bigger discounts on Wed.
The frequency of the large discounts lately and how many restaurants are no longer available are definite signs they're in trouble. I want to use up my points but
I feel guilty these restaurants are getting screwed. Most are local small business.

I have spoken with TasteAway regarding this payment issue, they claimed it was a mix up in accounting and that all restaurants are in the process of or already have been paid.

As for big chains on TasteAway, I mean they really do not need it I do not see why they're paying a percentage when advertising is already covered in franchises.

Mix up in accounting??? All of them?? Yeah right. That's as believable as the dog ate my homework. You think they'd honestly tell you yeah our business is in the crapper.
I just noticed another of my favourite restaurants that was available on Friday is now also "open later".

LOL the mixup is that the restaurants thought that TA had any money to pay them.

I have friends that own restaurants in Mississauga, only one of the three had issues with payments. The other two, which have both been around since the beginning have been paid on time and continue to do business with TasteAway.

Did TasteAway lie to me? Maybe I can't really say all I can say for sure is what my restaurant owner friends tell me.
