Rant : unreasonable delivery fees in seattle

Mar 7, 2019 15 Comments

Recently moved to Seattle and I am appalled at the high delivery fees for food here on Uber eats etc. Most restaurants I want start at 9-12$ delivery fee here and I have seen 18$ delivery fees too! What the fuck is that about. How is pricing done, and most importantly who are these people who pay this much fees. The cost of delivery is 4-5x cost of an Uber pool to the restaurant and back and if It wasn't so cold and me already in bed in PJs I probably would have stepped out. Aren't they pushing away customers like this?

    I stopped using food delivery services a few months ago because of this reason. Seattle is ridiculous.

      Yes! I'm lazy but I'm not stupid to spend 12$ on delivery and then we need to tip on top of that. Uber is getting ridiculous.

    Eating out in Seattle is the biggest scam ever. The food here ain’t even good. Food on East side is a bit better and not as heavily taxed.

    I’m saving literally $900/mo not eating out because of free food and snacks at work.

    If you take Uber pool, your food will be cold by the time you get back.

      True! But I was giving an example. Historically food delivery is not supposed to cost as much as getting to the restaurant in an Uber!
