Deliveroo Is Doing Free Delivery During Greater Brisbane's Latest Three-Day Lockdown
The service won't be charging delivery fees for orders from 1700-plus restaurants while Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Cost return to lockdown.
With Brisbane heading into another lockdown from 4pm on Saturday, July 31 until at least the same time on Tuesday, August 3 — this time encompassing 11 Local Government Areas in southeast Queensland, including both the Sunshine and Gold Coasts — home cooking and takeaway is back on the menu. Fancy the latter more than the former? Spent too much time baking during January, March and June's similar stint at home? Eager to order in for any reason possible? If you fall into any of the above categories, and you're keen to both support local eateries and keep an eye on your bank balance, Deliveroo is ditching its delivery fees for orders from most restaurants for three days.
From 4pm on Saturday, July 31 until the end of Tuesday, August 3, the service is doing free delivery from a hefty range of Brissie restaurants. It's also doing the same on the Gold and Sunshine coasts, if that's where you're based. More than 1700 eateries will be covered, so expect to have plenty of choices if you're keen to get something delivered without spending a cent.
The aim: to encourage folks to help local restaurants during this latest stay-at-home period and, because that's the world we live in, to help stop panic buying at supermarkets as well.
Plus, to ensure that all of the eateries involved aren't missing out on revenue or left out of pocket, Deliveroo is footing the bill for the discounted amount, too.
If you're suddenly hungry, you'll need to place an order via the Deliveroo app. There are a few caveats, unsurprisingly, with the free delivery deal not extending to KFC or to places listed in the app as 'delivered by restaurant'. You'll also need to spend at least $10 at most eateries, $12 at McDonald's, Subway and Baskin-Robbins, and $15 if you're purchasing from Red Rooster.
Deliveroo is doing free delivery across Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast from 4pm on Saturday, July 31 until 11.59pm on Tuesday, August 3. To make an order, head to the Deliveroo app.
