5 Clever Seamless Delivery Tricks To Keep Up Your Sleeve
Seamless forever changed the food delivery landscape in urban areas. It makes all of our food cravings attainable and gives us an easy way to discover restaurants in our neighborhoods without stepping foot outside of our apartments. Like with any app, there are definitely some hiccups (like the fact that you could easily walk there and back twice in the time that it takes your food to be delivered), but why would you put on shoes if you don’t have to? Exactly. Instead, here are five ways to make the most out of your Seamless app.
1. Use the instruction box to your advantage.
The instruction box is there for a reason. Seamless wouldn’t give you the opportunity to make a request if they didn’t want you to do it. If you want a specific kind of bread for your sandwich, you can ask. If you want to play an April Fool’s joke on someone and have the restaurant mess with someone’s order, you can ask. Even if you just want to say hi to your favorite chef or server at your local takeout spot, you can put that note in the box.
2. Cash in on those promo codes.
Promo codes are nothing to joke about. You know those emails that go straight into your spam folder? Make sure you’re not missing out on any deals or special promotions. From time to time, Seamless will email you promo codes that you can enter when you’re checking out, and some of them can bring you some serious savings, so stay alert.
3. Don’t miss the “free delivery” option.
Some restaurants on Seamless have a free delivery option. You’ll be able to check out all of the restaurants that are nixing their delivery fees by clicking on the “free delivery” filter when browsing for your next meal.
4. Be picky about the sorting options.
Don’t forget that Seamless offers a ton of sorting options. As long as you know what you’re in the mood for, you’ll get a list that’s pretty perfectly curated. You can sort by price, rating, distance, delivery minimum, delivery estimate, restaurant name or delivery fee. By the time you’re done sorting, you might only have a list with three options on it, but all three of the eateries will be right up your alley.
5. Pay attention to the top sellers.
Seamless marks the top sellers on the menu with a gold ribbon. So whenever you’re feeling indecisive, look for those gold ribbons to help you out. Sometimes it’ll be exactly what you’re in the mood for, and other times it might be something that’s way out of your comfort zone. Regardless, when you’re feeling lazy, listen to your fellow Seamless orderers and just go with the most popular items. They’re starred for a reason.
