May need to do some math to see if this is worth it. DoorDash marks up prices so you'll need to compare the DoorDash 40% off (+ ancillary fees) vs the BB&B price with 20% off.

I really dislike their arbitrary markups. Seems like all the delivery services sneak them in. The worst is when you spend time putting your cart together only to see an exorbitant final price that you can't continue with in good conscience.

I'm a DashPass member and just ran a test with Starbucks Vertuo pods that don't qualify for the standard BB&B 20% off. $9.69*5 = $48.45 plus $1.21 tax (in my state) is a total of $49.66 for five boxes. Through DoorDash, it's the same subtotal plus $11.02 in fees and taxes ($59.47), minus $19.38 (40%discount) = $40.09 BEFORE tip, which is $9.57 below store price. Depending on how close you live and how generous or frugal of a tipper you are, this could offer decent savings. Definitely do the math.

Most of the grocery stores and services do this for delivery to cover the fees of the delivery company. Restaurants sometimes do this too on these delivery services, but a little less often. Grocery margins are lower than restaurant margins usually.

I haven't tried with grocery stores but just this weekend I saw a $12 markup on a single food item from a local restaurant I visit. Usually, I see a $1-$2 markup but this was outrageous. I know they need to cover costs and everyone needs to eat (figuratively and literally) but sometimes it's just not worth it.

For sure. Always best to order direct from restaurants when you can. Sometimes the fees are so big for them it's hard to even offer it on these services.

Agree - they used to offer coupons that would be good for in-store pickups. My area there are hardly any drivers so a store I can walk to in 15 minutes would take an hour minimum to find a driver, then gets delayed over and over again, and food sits cold in the meantime waiting for it to be picked up. Only reason I would use them was because I had free GCs from GH or UberEats

40% off + a 15% service fee for doordash makes it really only 25% off...

Don't you people ever get tired of bitching about the fees and markups on these apps? They regularly offer codes, like this one, that offer pretty steep discounts, that cover that stuff and more if you are smart. That's when you should use these apps and many restaurants don't have unreasonable markups, those are the ones you should order from.

This isn't exactly rocket science and these conversations every time there's one of these deals is beyond tedious, no offense.

As a former restaurant owner, I can say this is true, but the difference is not that great as a percentage. Depending on the restaurant, the margins are only a little higher. Average margins in restaurants are 3-5% compared to 1-3% for grocery. Considering these delivery/ordering services (Doordash, UberEats, Waitr, etc) often take 30% or more of the total order, it is a money-losing proposition to offer the same prices for delivery. Ultimately, our small coffee shop decided we could not offer the delivery services without charging an exorbitant amount for our product through delivery. A latte in shop for $4 would be $5.32 delivery, plus tip so likely approaching $7 for a latte.

But how much does that latte really cost the coffee shop (after factoring in COGS, G&A, etc)?
