Get $10 Off! UberEATS Singapore Promo Code

ubereats singapore promo code

Food delivery companies foodpanda and deliveroo are definitely feeling the heat with competitior UberEATS on board. I think these companies are burning cash with their marketing efforts. The one with the most cash to burn will be here to stay, while others simply get burned out. Smaller players need not apply. 😀 In this post, I’ll share with you my UberEATS promo codes and whether I’ve preferred ordering food with UberEATS or Deliveroo. Read on…

For $10 off your UberEATS delivery, use this code below. UberEATS will also reward me with $10 when you order, so thank YOU in advance! 😀

And here’s the code I used for my second order, ‘cos the first one arrived so late:

Ubereats singapore review

I’m not sure about you, but brand loyalty seems to be in my blood. I take really long to switch from one brand to another. I’ve been ordering food deliveries exclusively with Deliveroo, and it’s not like they’re paying me or giving me free food. I’m just so used to their ordering system that switching to another company’s system is like getting me to abandon Samsung and start using iPhones again. (@_@)

So the reason I decided to give UberEATS a try (and also to blog about them) is not because they’re paying me but because they have this promotion via Groupon in which people pay around $2 and get $20 to spend with UberEATS – an offer that’s too good to resist, obviously. And now I’m able to compare UberEATS and Deliveroo and share with you my verdict on what’s good about each company, and what needs improvement.

UberEATS VS Deliveroo

  1. Menu with PICTURES: UberEATS uses their app almost exclusively (I cannot order via their website, but I can do so on Deliveroo’s website) and the menu comes with pictures for many of the items, though not all. And the pictures really help me save time in deciding what to order. ubereats singapore menu
  2. No Tips Required: When ordering via UberEATS, you’ll see that unlike Deliveroo, it doesn’t ask you to indicate the amount of tips (if any) that you’d like to give the rider. In fact, it is stated “Tips are not included in the cost of your order. Tipping is neither expected nor required”. Of course, if your rider braved heavy rain to get you your meal, offer him a tip or at least a drink when he shows up at your doorstep, lah.
  3. Track Your Rider: I LOVE that UberEATS allows me to see where the rider is and how far he is from me. Of course, it gets a bit worrying when I see that he’s going in the opposite direction with my food (Noooooooo…Come backkkkkk) ubereats promo code
  4. Contact Your Rider: UberEATS doesn’t seem to want to handle customer enquiries regarding orders since they aren’t in the food delivery business only. Instead, you’re encouraged to call the rider directly. I’m not inclined to do this because of safety issues (what if the rider gets into an accident while taking my call?) but if I see that he’s going round and round and seems unable to find the building I’m in, yup, call him I will.
  5. No Minimum Order: Unlike Deliveroo, UberEATS will deliver even if you’re ordering just 1 cup of bubble tea. Deliveroo has a minimum order amount of about S$25 so I don’t usually place an order if I’m dining alone.

What’s not so great about UberEATS is that food delivery takes a REALLY long time. You might be starving when you place your order, and by the time the food is delivered, that feeling of hunger would have long subsided. Good if you’re trying to lose some weight. Give the food to someone else. 😀

My first order of the Chirashi Don took 1 hr 1 min to get to me. UberEATS responded with an email that said “We’re sorry your order took so long” and gave me a $10 off promo code to use with my next order. I used it immediately for drinks (bubble tea, in fact) and it took even longer to reach me: 1 hr 20 mins. UberEATS did not send me any emails after that.

With Deliveroo, I get my food faster. And when their riders arrive late, I’m well compensated, e.g. $15 credit for being 15 minutes late, $30 credit for being 30 minutes late, etc. Sometimes my meal becomes entirely “free of charge” because of this. But the bad news is that my food is cold. 😛

Deliveroo FINALLY Delivers Islandwide: Special Deals Till 14th August!

Deliveroo Singapore

Previously, Deliveroo operated only within a few zones, mainly within the CBD area, and I couldn’t place my order with them unless I’m at my love’s office. Now, Deliveroo delivers islandwide and they are having a celebration! Woohoo! 🙂 Last week was 1-for-1 Burger week, and this week they’re going Chinese. Last last week, I ordered burgers and chicken from Tenderfresh and today we had a tasting menu for 2 pax delivered from Mouth Restaurant. It was such great value with so many items to try! If you have yet to experience food delivery via Deliveroo, do so now (referral link at the end of this post for $10 off). If you have yet to try getting food delivered from an atas Chinese restaurant, now’s your chance. LOL!

I picked Mouth Restaurant for lunch today and it was pretty awesome. Mouth Restaurant served up a delicious century egg congee plus sides, and even the liu sha bao (salted egg yolk custard bun) tasted good despite being tabao-ed.

Mouth Restaurant Tasting Menu

There are many participating Chinese restaurants offering set menus this week, via Deliveroo. For 2 pax, just pay $25, and only $45 for 4 pax. Key in your postal code via Deliveroo’s website or app, and check out which restaurants will deliver to your stated location.

Here’s the liu sha bao…

Mouth Restaurant

I loved the congee and the braised tofu too – they are some of my favorite comfort foods. As for the iced lemon tea which came with the set, I was amused at how they came not in cups but in the plastic bowls which were also used for the porridge. Cling wrap between the bowl and the cover prevented spills – how clever! For just $25, we had quite a feast!

As for last week, we ordered burgers from Tenderfresh and it came with fries. S$6.90 bought us TWO sets of the burger + fries combo!

Tenderfresh

Apart from the fantastic deals and the opportunity to order from good Chinese restaurants (and skip the service charge, paying only $3 for the delivery fee), I also enjoyed the order process. I could track the order from the moment it is accepted by the restaurant to the time the Deliveroo rider is ‘en route’ or has arrived. Too cool!

Deliveroo Order Status

For both these orders, the riders came within the stated delivery time so I was most impressed! I’ve ordered from Deliveroo multiple times in the past, and so far, there was only once when they arrived late due to bad weather.

*As their customer, I’m given a referral link to share; it’ll give new customers S$10 off their bill, and also give me S$10 in credit to spend on my next meal delivery. Hehe! So feel free to click on the link/picture below and let’s indulge in some good food together! 🙂

Deliveroo: DISCOUNT CODE plus Why I Welcome Them To Singapore! :D

Deliveroo Plain Vanilla Cupcakes

Met the fiancé at Raffles Place yesterday and I spotted some people donning kangaroo outfits. I then recalled that I recently received a press release regarding Deliveroo’s distribution of Plain Vanilla cupcakes in the CBD area as part of their launch promotions in Singapore. 🙂 I received the cupcake you see above – it is as delicious as it is cute! 😀 Read on for my first impression about the brand and get a S$10 discount code too…

So here’s the lovely kangaroo who gave me the freebies 😀

Deliveroo Raffles Place

She took great pains to explain (in detail) about their IG contest, the restaurants they work with, etc! Thumbs up! (If only I remember half of what she said) 😀

Anyway, the cupcake tastes awesome, so thank you Deliveroo!

First up, I think their giving out of 5000 customized cupcakes from the famous Plain Vanilla Bakery is a pretty generous gesture. Assuming each cupcake costs S$2 (probably more but…) they would have spent S$10,000, not forgetting the manpower and PR costs involved. It’s a sweet treat, no doubt, though if it were up to me, I’d ensure my company label/sticker is on top of the box, instead of Plain Vanilla’s. PV’s could be at the edge to keep the box lid shut. *I’m not sure if PV sponsored those cupcakes, or gave a huge discount, so I’m just thinking along the lines of a business owner or marketing person. Don’t shoot me! 😀

I love those kangaroo outfits though – they attracted so much attention. Office workers were walking up to the roos instead of the latter trying to approach them. 😀

Some background information: Deliveroo was first launched in London, in 2013, by William Shu and Greg Orlowski. It is a premium food delivery service, which currently has some 140 Singapore restaurants on board. Because they have just launched, they are currently serving only 5 zones now:  Bukit Timah, Tanglin, the Central Business District, Kallang and Katong.

I didn’t know this when I visited their website while preparing this blogpost… and found that Deliveroo doesn’t deliver to my home, nor my fiancé’s home YET. So don’t be disappointed. They’ll probably expand their operations to other areas soon.

I love that they charge only a flat delivery fee of S$3 to your home or office (in those 5 zones I mentioned earlier). THREE DOLLARS?! That’s totally disrupting the market! I think Deliveroo might end up putting some pressure on FoodPanda as I know the latter’s delivery fees have a pretty wide range – from free (with a minimum purchase) to tens of dollars.

Also, Deliveroo aims to help you get your food in an average of 32 minutes! That’s even faster than if I were to cook a meal myself! So I’m definitely waiting for the day they tell me they will deliver to my home. 😛

From a business blogger point of view, I am so happy that restaurants will be able to get more customers without the hassle of owning their own fleet of delivery drivers/riders. It’s awesome! The customers benefit, and the restaurants benefit too! 🙂

You can order from establishments like Cedele, Mad For Garlic, Potato Head Folk, Sushi Burrito, and many more. Head over to http://www.deliveroo.com.sg and find out more:
