Deliveroo Is Doing Free Delivery During Brisbane's Latest Three-Day Lockdown
It's available throughout the city while it goes back into lockdown — and on the Sunshine Coast, too.
With Brisbane about to head into another lockdown from 6pm on Tuesday, June 29 until the same time on Friday, July 2 — 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 and March'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 5pm on Tuesday, June 29 until the end of Friday, July 2, the service is doing free delivery from a hefty range of Brissie restaurants. It's also doing the same on the Sunshine Coast, if that's where you're based. Exactly how many eateries will be taking part hasn't been revealed, but 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 bottle 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.
