Uber No Rush Delivery Discount, Right Out Of The Amazon Playbook
I was dusting off my UberEats app today, since I once again have an Amex Platinum card and those frustrating $15 monthly Uber credits. Can we just have a lump sum credit already Amex?! That is a debate for another day though. Back to my Del Taco lunch order, when I went to order I noticed something new, Uber no rush delivery discounts. I had to do a double take and make sure it wasn’t my Amazon app that I was poking around. Because this is straight out of Amazon’s playbook, with their no rush shipping credits. Uber’s credit is a little better since it is an instant discount instead of a delayed credit…that expires 😡. They also offer a rush delivery for an increased cost as well.
I am not sure if the amount will change according to the location or not. When I did a few test orders the amount was the same. However, not all restaurants had the offer available.
Sounds like Priority means they are not picking up multiple orders on the way to you. Not sure how much time it would actually save but your food may be above lukewarm with that option.
That has me questioning the Uber no rush delivery though. Does it mean the driver gets to the restaurant a little later or does the food simply sit in their car longer and you are bumped to the last stop? If it is just a later pick up I think this works out nicely but if it comes stone cold then $1 is a joke.
I gave the Uber no rush delivery a try today and it seemed to be pretty normal. The food came about the same temp as normal. And it looked like he came to me right after picking up the order. It took longer and there was a delay of about 15 minutes. I am not sure if that was because of the no rush selection or would have happened any way.
Will I use it in the future? Probably since I am rarely in a rush to get my food and a dollar saved is a dollar earned. If it gets to the point that the food is coming cold then I will skip it altogether. I may try the priority option next time to see if there is a difference at all. If you have already tried it let me know in the comments.
