Takeout Day 20% off orders $30+

Savings:
20%
Expiry:
May 6, 2020
Retailer:
Uber Eats
The offer detail says "20% off delivery orders" but last week I was able to use the discount and do a pickup. So try to pickup if the place is nearby so most profit goes directly to the local restaurants.

Promo code: TAKEOUTWED

Expires midnight, May 6.

Fyi Uber still takes a big cut if you do pickup through the app. If you really want to support the restaurant just call and do a pickup order. It would help them a ton.

A bunch of Toronto restaurants are trying to get a boycott going. More info here:
https://nowtoronto.com/food-and-drink/f ... t-toronto/

This deal is probably to help offset that bad publicity.

(not criticizing the deal, just sharing info, thanks for posting OP)

The terms says valid in Canada, but then when I try to use it, it lists specific cities only. Not for Montreal :(

It's a hard balance because we need to support the businesses themselves as well, or else there will be far fewer businesses to deliver from.

Is there somewhere on the site that allows me to filter restaurants that allow pickup? Or is this an app only feature?

There is a "Pickup" filter at the top of your screen.

If you are really interested in supporting your local restaurants instead of some giant american tech corp, order from the restaurant directly.

I actually called my local wild wings and asked them for 20% off instead of ordering from uber to get the 20%.

They were happy to give 20% off and for me to pick it up.

Did pickup from Kinjo in Calgary last weekend. They are giving 20% off for pickup as long as you call them directly. They had a large amount of curb side pickups when I went (1 hour wait for pickup) and they also had another side door setup for curb side Skip, Uber Eats etc delivery drivers which was very crowded. Figured I saved myself at least $20 by doing call in pickup and then the restaurant also wins by making more money off my order.

I've stopped using delivery apps since the food items are always higher, plus they tacked on delivery/service charge on top. This is before I've learn that they get cut from the restaurant as well, so they are profiting off both sides.

So I just order directly from the restaurant, and both sides benefit.

My local restaurant is offering 10% off if you order from them and pick up. But if I order from UberEats and pick up myself today, I get 20% off. Since this is RFD and we're all about the savings, guess UberEats will get my money today.

I work in the restaurant industry.

Uber is sucks and are greedy.
It takes 30% commission away from the restaurant.
Their traffic is barely 20% of what Skip the dishes bring in.
They barely have any courier.
Time management sucks. Sometimes we have order done in 20-25 minutes as requested but the courier shows up in 45 to 60 minute. Affects the quality of the food.

Skip is better because they charge 25% and does bring in business.
The drivers are always within the time frame the restaurant request.
Best option for delivery if the restaurant doesn't have in house delivery.


If you really want to support local and can pick up the order, can the restaurant directly. They do get to keep the commission to keep the lights up, and keep business going. Some does give out 10% discount but I wouldn't ask for extra discount when one has a job and the restaurant is struggling to pay for rent.

I wish you didn't have to spend $30. After delivery/service fees and taxes you're still paying like $35 for a meal.

I only use UberEat and didn't know they took 30% commission. That's nuts.
Remember I also have to pay service fees.

Will check out Skio and Doordash

You can ask the restaurant for 20% off

Some restaurants offers 10-20% discount on your order if you call in to pick it up. I think it's mostly Asian restaurant that does this but it's worth asking other restaurants. It's nice weather outside now and you should move your body to get your food and burn some calories.
