Recently I took advantage of the Cash Rewards Offer for NEW CUSTOMERS to Hello Fresh and Thought that was pretty amazing ($85 off the total cost).

However since getting my box I got a generic code for NEW CUSTOMERS ONLY which is used in the check out to discount your order by 100%. This works for any combination of Classic, Veggie or Family Box.

Bonus is that you can choose different options depending on what box you want.

Classic - 2/4 people, 3/5 meals
Veggie - 2/4 people, 3 meals
Family - 4 people, 4 meals

Best combination being for 4 people and 5 meals on the Classic Box for $0 delivered (usually $189.95)

Remember to Cancel it straight away if you dont wish to have it every week as its a subscription service which will to continue to deliver to you unless you tell it otherwise!

Changes to your account (meaning ordering or cancellations) need to be done before Wednesday 11:59PM (Sydney time) the week prior to your next delivery. Users should cancel or downgrade their box after they've ordered as they prefer. You can deactivate after you have made your order by clicking on your account and settings. Click deactivate immediately as the 1st order will still be delivered, just nothing subsequently after this.

Happy Eating!

** Havent tried the cashrewards discount in conjunction but doubt you would get the rebate on $0
** Only valid with Households first Box
*** Subject to you living in an area that they deliver to
**** I got given multiple cards to give to friends but they all have the same code - not sure how many order will get through but hopefully its unlimited!

Where do you deliver?

We deliver to most suburbs in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra and in Albury, Bendigo, Ballarat, the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast Cairns, Townsville and the Southern Highlands.

    Be warned…Mine came through to paypal at $189 despite the HFR6D06 code being accepted and order total being 0.

    •  

      Mine did the same, and foolish me didn't pick up on it until I got the Paypal confirmation email. I just sent HelloFresh an email asking for my order to be reversed.

    •  

      dont you check the final price before you click confirm purchase???

      •  

        99% of the time I do. Apparently this time I didn't. I saw the $1.00 order amount before I went to Paypal, and must have went into cruise control.

        I did, and I'm sure it said $1 - the code was accepted, however the full cost was charged.

      Hey the same thing happened to me but it did say $1 order total, then the total amount was $189.99 . I have no idea what happened. What a nightmare. I said I would never ever use them again a few years ago and this happens. I will never use them again and hope they get banned on ozb forever until infinity.

      Hey, I called them and said I was using a code I Received and asked them to cancel it immediately and they did, but I used Paypal.

      •  

        Yeah, I've cancelled and recieved the cancelled email, but also filed a paypal dispute just to be sure, as the cancellation email is still saying it'll be cancelled after next weeks delivery.

    I tried all codes, and got "This voucher is invalid."

    Looks like the party's over.

    I recall these clowns did something like this a year or so ago. They offered a trial box for $1, then promptly cancelled everyone's orders and many peeps didn't even get their dollar back. Be warned, these guys are not professional.

      I am sorry you are not invited for the party.
      There are no charges involved except the $1 dollar verification which is refundable.

    I entered in the code which brought the total down to $1, but I never checked the paypal total and I ended up getting billed for the full amount.

    I called them immediately and cancelled/refunded the whole order!

    I missed it. But just wonder will Hellofresh ever Honour this??? Massive freebies for them and huge loss

      Close to 4,000 clicks (would be more from other bargain sites and etc…).

      Let's say 1,000 people ordered this.
      Say each box cost them including delivery $50
      1,000 x 50 = $50,000 extremely rough estimate.

      I'd say this isn't going to be honored for everyone. Depends on what their customer acquisition budget is. If you canceled straight away, I'd say not honored.
      Or perhaps the first few will be honored…as a good will or such.

      but with all things, time will tell. More trouble than it's worth for most people.

        Equivalent of two TV ads in peak of prime time. Not too bad I guess considering the exposure.

    Forgot to use my $10 prepaid coles card I have lying around for these situations
    Don't trust these guys at all.
    Iv already unlinked my credit card from PayPal and thinking of liquidating my PayPal account until this boils over
    Can someone tell me if PayPal can go into a debit balance?

    • +6 votes

      lol

    •  

      they can't charge your paypal without your knowledge. even if they did the amount of legal issues they'd incur would be insane. and even IF they did it'd be so easy to dispute given you have an email stating the discounted and billed amount.

      •  

        Referring to the subscription
        Don't want to cancel it as my thinking is they'll be more likely to honour active ones
        Don't want to cancel preauthorisation in case they communicate it to hello fresh

  • +2 votes

    This could be a genius ploy by the company. Leak the code and get everyone to order, then cancel and not fulfill the order due to some reason and KEEP every $1 they made from the 4000 clicks so far. Like they did last time

    It is obviously worth their while to run this kind of promotion, but they simply cannot handle so many people signing up at once.

    Their largely poor reputation seems to be well deserved.

    Order just got cancelled.

    My response to their email:

    "As someone who owns their own marketing business, you are full of s***. If you aren't willing to honour the offer, as a result of having no foresight and screwing up, just be honest and say so. If you were smart you would have protected your reputation by saying that you could not honour the offer, though offering an alternative offer. E.g. $20 off a future order etc. Would have considered legitimately using your service if I was happy with the trial, though no longer. You have ruined your reputation in the eyes of a few hundred people today (OzBargain community), well done."

      I actually think this case is more interesting than the normal price errors - the code and price were/did exactly what they were supposed to be/do, so they can't argue price error.

      Maybe "stock levels"?

      Or just some general "we reserve the right…" argument?

      •  

        Or just some general "we reserve the right…" argument?

        Pretty reasonable to go with that one. Unless people actually expected a company to fork out $190 for customers they'd never see again?

        •  

          Isn't that the point of the promotion though? It has just gone to a level they didn't expect…

        • +2 votes

          @djkelly69:

          I doubt they expected everyone to choose the most expensive option

          And I doubt they wanted people to cancel their accounts straight after ordering

        • +1 vote

          @Spackbace: I realise that, but anyone who "legitimately" took up their promotion was entitled to do exactly that as well.

          Their marketing/business model appears to be built on getting people to try their stuff for cheap prices, and then liking it enough to continue on and pay full price.

        •  

          @djkelly69:

          It relies heavily on people forgetting to cancel. Like any subscription based thing really

        • +1 vote

          @Spackbace: So not enough people letting them use their predatory business practice is good enough reason to cancel orders?

          Pretty much! lol

    So they have showcased their website and services to 4000 new addresses at no time at all…and that was free. Not bad I'd say!
