I don't get what they do. They place the order and have you pick it up or ask the company to deliver. Besides the coupon, what would be the reason I would use this service? Why not call the restaurant directly and place my order for delivery/pick up?

because it's much easier to find a restaurant around you, check the menu then order/pay online.

don't call the restaurant, they are not going to give a shit about your seamless coupon.

I think he meant on a regular basis, why would people use an online service like Seamless instead of just calling the restaurant.

My thinking is that it's easier to order online when you can see the full menu, especially if it's a restaurant you have yet to visit. Also, this helps people find restaurants that they may otherwise not know about. Finally, there's the convenience factor: in the last few years, more and more people are finding it more convenient to order on their computer and phones than calling a restaurant.

Same reason people use Expedia, or Hotels.com.

Oh, and the other thing, I believe they deliver from places that don't normally deliver. i.e. a courier will go pick up the food from the restaurant and deliver to you. At least that's what grubhub used to do when I was in college.

for me, it's more convenient and quicker for me to place an online order and pay with my CC. there's also less of a chance they take down the wrong order information. at some of the places, i've seen/heard them try to take 3 calls at once.

although, 90% of the time, i only tend to use seamless when they have these codes or at least 15% off. then i can pickup something better for lunch. :-)

Do you guys tip the delivery person? I find it not so slickdeal if I have to pay extra for something I already paid for. Don't tell me to pick it up blah blah blah or don't go out to eat blah blah blah, the money I paid already included the delivery fee or service fee if there's a separate charge then they should not advertise it on their menu. I disagree on tipping, just my 2 cents.

According to Seamless.com's FAQ here [seamless.com], "It is customary in the US that delivery people are paid anywhere between 10%-20% of the food/beverage total." Personally, I usually tip approximately $2 to $5, depending on the order amount and size.

I'm confused by your statement of "the money I paid already included the delivery fee." Where does it state that?

My personal thinking, which is based on some experience, is that the people who do deliveries get a base hourly wage, and many of them really do rely on tips.

What I meant was you know when you look at the menu, it said minimum delivery, that means they WILL deliver if I order from them. So for example I buy a lunch for $10, then that $10 covers my food and delivery. If they want more to deliver it then they should raise the price of their food and not EXPECT us consumers to tip them to cover for their delivery expense.

And to comment on the people who do delivery my opinion is it's THEIR CHOICE to choose that job, they chose it. No one forced them to choose that job that only pays on tips. They have a choice to not accept that job, and if they do then that's their problem. Just my opinion.

Same goes to tipping in restaurants.

Not that I won't tip, I usually leave 15% for delivery or restaurant waiters but that's because I feel obligated to.
