Looks like UberEats is capitalizing on the absolute disaster that was DoorDash cancelling their promo and is offering something. Check your app and email.

What's the point of using a delivery app to order takeout (serious question)? The menu pricing up to 50% higher (average 30% in Toronto) plus delivery fee (which I guess the "pick-up" doesn't charge), so why not just call the restaurant ahead and place your order, or using their own online ordering system?

Heck, even if you have to go in person to order, most if not all takeout/delivery menu items are short order, so by the time one enters all the information on the app, you could have just ordered in person and the wait would have been about the same, plus $$$ savings. This is RFD after all! Smiling Face With Open Mouth

Some places don't have an online menu let alone ordering system, because they rely on Ritual, Uber Eats, etc. From what I have seen the prices in-store and through their pickup menu are the same, but some do bake in higher prices into their delivery menu.

Some places I've called before also don't have native English speakers taking the orders, so modifications get missed, sometimes menu items come out completely different. When it's in writing through an online order it's usually a lot more reliable and you can go get mistakes fixed if they do happen.

Sorry most of the restaurants I ordered in GVA do not jack up the price on UE, if yes, it’s 10% at most.

I can still take advantage of the frequent 30-50% off coupons + discounted UE gift cards.

I can't take you seriously when you say things like "This is RFD after all!" when you're so seriously misinformed about this. Firstly never use BlogTO as a legit source for anything, secondly those articles you linked are barely even supporting the point you're making "Menu prices are inflated 30% avg in Toronto" and lastly they are all sensationalized pieces which can pick and choose the examples & criteria in the stats they present to support their title which generates clicks.

Don't even get me started on waiting for people ahead of you in line to order who didn't bother to take a look at the menu til they got to the register and were asked what they'd like...

I save $10 every time I order sushi for my GF & I downtown Toronto when I order for pickup through uber eats with a discount rather than calling the restaurant and ordering for pickup. This is RFD after all!

I don't know what the "average price they jack it up by" is, but it's completely meaningless to me. The restaurants I order from don't jack up the price, and that's all that matters to me. For other people, same deal with restaurants they order from. Couldn't care less if the price is jacked up for places I never order from anyways.

I got 25% off on 4 orders, with a max discount of $8. I normally wouldn’t spend over $30, so I guess it’s alright. Not a fan of their service though.

On a side note, do these stack with the referral bonus?

I got some promos from Uber Eats - $10 off with $35 minimum order and 30% off for pickup. So I've placed 5 orders with different restaurants in Toronto: seafood, healthy vegetarian food, sushi and Greek restaurant. After reading this thread, I compared the prices for each item that I ordered with takeout prices on the restaurant website, and there was a markup on each item from 25% (expensive seafood restaurant) to 12.5% (Greek) . I picked up everything myself, so there was no additional fees for the service.
Clearly if there is 25% markup on the app + you pay taxes on that, you save almost nothing even with 30% off promotion.

Got the same promo however it didn't apply properly so have been given the bounce around by the service rep (count is up to 8 reps with having to explain the issue and sending screenshots after screenshots!) I guess my mistake to expect any service from Ubereats.
