To celebrate the LA Dodgers win, Postmates is turning the celebration into a citywide event for Angelenos. For the rest of the month (ok, well, through 10/31/2020 at 11:59 PM PST to be exact), if you live in one of Postmates’ delivery locations that qualify, you can get Free Delivery on every order with code WINNERS (for orders over $10, up to 3 orders).

We’re not sure if the code will work outside of LA for, say, Tampa Bay residents, but that would be some really good sportsmanship on Postmates’ part IF it does.

If new to the food delivery app, Postmates offers a 7-day free trial of its Unlimited Delivery service. After that, the cost is $9.99/month or $99 annually.

Slick Tip:  According to the Postmates website, their Unlimited Delivery service can actually save you $185 per year in delivery fees (so pays for itself and a side fries)! We’ll let the folks at Postmates explain: “Just two orders a month covers the cost of your membership. After that, the money you save can be used for more important things. Like adding avocado to everything.”

Is this Postmates Worth It?

Several commenters also complained about Postmates raising menu prices. In response to those concerns, this comment is pretty helpful:

“Restaurant chain owner here. For those of you that complained about Postmates upcharge on items while giving these “free deliveries,” keep note that Postmates does NOT control the items and prices listed for the restaurants in their system. We actually get an online dashboard that we can adjust prices ourselves. So the upcharge that you see are done by the restaurants, not Postmates.

Postmates’ fees are actually not the highest; it’s UberEats that has the highest rate, then Doordash, then Postmates, then Grubhub is the cheapest.”

One advantage of Postmates compared to other food delivery services is that it also delivers groceries and alcohol. So you could use your free unlimited trial for those services and compare restaurant delivery with other apps before going with Postmates.

Finally, one important thing to keep in mind is that you do need to enter a credit card in order to activate your free trial. Then you need to remember to cancel Postmates Unlimited before your trial ends and you get charged. A few commenters said that canceling right away reduced their free trial from two months to one.
