Two Free Meals ($20 Value) with YouFoodz (Minimum Spend $69)

1216
TAKETWO

Looks like last nights 7 free meals was cancelled for everyone but they're now offering 2 free meals (and intentionally this time!). There may be delivery charges based on your location - metro appears to be free though.

Here's the content of their email:

We did it, Fam. We went VIRAL… sort of.

Last night we had an exclusive code for competition winners - THEBLOCKFREE - leaked to multiple discount sites. Unfortunately, the code you’ve used to place your order is valid for competition winners only, so your order/s will be cancelled and any cost incurred will be refunded.

However, we don’t want you to get too hangry and would still love for you to place a fresh YF order so you can ditch the groceries for a week!

Head on over to youfoodz.com & we’ll give you 2 FREE meals to the value of $20! #TakeTwo

Use the code “TAKETWO” at checkout
Offer expires 2nd Nov 2017 at 1:130pm AEST

    First things first, it’s the websites duty to clarify which consumers are ‘eligible’.
    Second, we just popped this website up into public interest and it is ‘cost-free’ for the website itself.
    Thirdly, the coupon attached requires a minimum spend of $69, which mean you will no longer get what you want.

    Anyway, smart move Youfoodz. Free advertisings.

    •  

      Well not really just YouFoodz, It was also Ozbargain and all the hype and fuss on here that caused the free advertising….

      How? When the original post wasn't even posted/advertised by them? Perhaps you should direct your question to the OP.

      Second, we just popped this website up into public interest and it is ‘cost-free’ for the website itself.

      Given this is ozbargain, highly doubt the 6 figure $loss is worth the 3 return customers. What's the point in giving away so much free stuff and losing money to gain public interest, only to go bankrupt.

    It's sad to see so many entitled people around. I bet if it was their business and they got 700 orders with $70 discounts ($49,000 worth) by people who are ineligible for the discount, they wouldn't be honoring it either.

    But no, it's all about me me me me. How dare a company not lose money on me? I was definitely going to spend $500 a month with them, but now I've blacklisted them because I tried to scam them into giving me free food by using somebody else's code that I wasn't eligible to use.

    •  

      eug, I think you need to calm down…

      It's not YouFoodz complete fault as the voucher was intended for the block competition winner and a friend leaked it.

      Please be kind you YouFoodz as this type of business is only for the short term anyway before thery go bankrupt so let them play shop without the hassle of mocking them for this one innocent mistake

      • +5 votes

        The leaking part isn't the issue, it happens online all the time. It's people's reactions when orders get cancelled.

        People here know that they're not actually eligible for the voucher, put in orders knowing that it might get cancelled, and when it does, they act like the company scammed them. It gives OzBargainers a bad name - like we're a bunch of entitled little kids who think everyone owes us everything. Yet if the tables were turned, I bet they'd be screaming at the 700 people who tried to take advantage of a deal they weren't entitled to.

        We should be trying these deals out knowing that it might get cancelled, and if it does, just go "oh well, try again next time" and be done with it. It's like risk-free gambling - sometimes you win sometimes you lose, except you don't actually lose any money.

        Instead we have people calling them scammers, saying it's all a marketing stunt to get email addresses, people saying they're going to neg future youfoodz deals and badmouth them, saying it's bait/switch and misleading advertising, saying their whole family will never shop at their business, etc. For some reason they think the company wronged them after they got caught out using a coupon code that they weren't entitled to.

        • +1 vote

          The problem lies in the fact that they took payment as well as email addresses, Sure they should have not gone through with the order. But it is their own fault also for not making the codes unique and / or having other methods and steps in place to stop this happening, other companies do this. I think the worst part is the code they did provide is quite ordinary since it doesnt have shipping included so is not quite worthwhile but they have now got details of a lot of users - addresses, credit cards, email addresses as well as having them all signed up and free publicity, Not many people knew about this company before this.

          I think if they had provided a slightly better offer with more free meals or free shipping or something to make it a bit more worthwhile, people wouldnt be as upset. Especially since they have already offered what looks like a better deal than this previously anyway and that was for free and to anyone, while in this case people were actually affected / had cancelled orders after going through placing them and creating accounts etc. It was also late at night, so a lot of people probably stayed up going through the menus / options trying to decide which ones they want etc. In my case thats what i did, I spent about 45 minutes or an hour going through it all, As well as my order was not just for the free amount, but i went over by about 50$ or more as i was looking to try quite a few different meals and looking for a new alternative to Dishd, so they would have had a regular customer out of me if the food turned out decent and well priced.

          I was a big supporter of DishD and i basically missed out on their last closing down sale because it got put up here and alot of people who usually dont support or buy from them jumped on board and ozbargained the store to the point they had to stop all online orders, my order was placed but got lost in the bulk. Which was a shame as i was a regular supporter of the store and used to buy them from monthly. So I do think ozbargain sometimes ruins it for stores and their regular customers. Which is why some people suggest requiring people to log on to ozbargain at least that way they are somewhat of a contributor to the website.

          So I do think people go overboard, i think in this case it was just the way it was handled. I havent seen a lot of other times where this kind of thing has happened where people have reacted as upset as they are now.

          How else would they take an order?

          But it is their own fault also for not making the codes unique and / or having other methods and steps in place to stop this happening, other companies do this.

          Sure. But what right do we have, as people who are sneakily trying to get free meals from a company with a code that wasn't meant for us, have?

          Why are people so upset that they got caught out using somebody else's code? We all knew we were 100% in the wrong, so we shouldn't be pissed off if we get caught. We certainly shouldn't be demanding compensation because we were the ones trying to scam the store into giving us free meals in the first place.

        •  

          @eug:

          There in lies the misconception. Maybe you thought it was sneaky and wrong. I dont know if everyone thought they were doing something underhanded or sneaky and that they were 100% wrong. They could have easily thought it was a discount code to use like the 1000s of other discount codes that comes on Ozbargain.

          Judging by your response, you have used the words sneakily, scam, 100% in the wrong, which is how perhaps you feel and hence why you take this stance and surprised at other peoples responses. But imagine for the people who didnt look at it that way or approach it in the same manner you did then they would feel somewhat shafted not just about the order but also the time they spent on it as well as giving away their details.

          I think there in lies the confusion you have for how other people have responded.

          I think both parties have wronged but i think you feel the company was in the right and only the people who placed the orders have wronged and thats the difference in the thinking.

          In terms of how else they will take the order, there are other methods. For instance in some cases, payment does not get processed neither does the order get processed till someone goes through it.

          But also like i said, if it had seemed they also realised they had made a mistake by not having more checks in place and / or targeted codes and then provided a better method of satisfying the people who had ordered by providing at least something which was better than the freebies they had provided in the past since in this case people had already signed up and gone through the hassle of making payments and now having to wait for the refunds, I doubt people would have responded as harshly. But I think it was in the way the company responded and their attempts at making things right was quite abysmal and so people felt more hurt by it.

          @eug: "Scammer" is your term, not those in the comments you've referenced

        •  

          @lonewolf:

          I dont know if everyone thought they were doing something underhanded or sneaky and that they were 100% wrong.

          Surely you would expect a reasonable person who participates in discussions on OzB would be aware that such great deals involving "mystery" coupon codes like that have a good chance of being rejected?

          It was mentioned the 5th comment in that it might not be honored, and multiple times farther down. If the people complaining are posting on the forum, they should be aware of it - especially since they have nothing to do with the block.

          The rejection email gave everyone the reason - the code was leaked; it was only meant for a certain group of people. So everyone is now well-aware that they used someone else's coupon - they weren't eligible for the deal. The deal was never advertised or offered to them - they just found it on a website. So, knowing that they weren't eligible, why are they still so angry at the company? Whose fault was it?

          In terms of how else they will take the order, there are other methods. For instance in some cases, payment does not get processed neither does the order get processed till someone goes through it.

          They will still need your email address. Taking payment when goods are ordered is a pretty standard way to do business worldwide.

          But I think it was in the way the company responded and their attempts at making things right was quite abysmal and so people felt more hurt by it.

          So these people, after finding out that they used a coupon code that wasn't given to them, are still angry at the company because they used a code that they weren't entitled to? Youfoodz never advertised to them, communicated with them, or gave them any coupon codes. Why should people get angry at them?

          @inasero: How do you define "scammer"? And why are you only fixating on that one word?

        •  

          @eug:

          This is Ozbargain, there are a million random codes people discover through all sorts of means including just randomly trying different words from a previous code or targeted code etc. And less than 1% of the million and one codes ends up like this, So I dont know if most people thought these codes would definitely get rejected. And again it is not so much the rejection as i mentioned previously. But rather the way it was handled and the subsequent freebie they provided that upset the most people.

          Yep, I find dominoes pizza codes from all over the net and test the code. knowing I didn't receive the code directly from dominoes (eg email), or find the code from a legit source (eg their website), I don't get surprised when the code doesn't work. Do you start whinging to dominoes and expect them to give you a big freebie? 1 free garlic bread isn't enough, maybe 3 free pizzas would be a more sincere apology?

        •  

          @Ughhh:

          Except when the code doesn't work I don't end up having to pay anything or have my order being confirmed and my account being created. And then a day later informed my order has been cancelled. So probabaly not the best example.

          And if they ever get my order wrong or I have any issues with it. I have always received at least one or 2 pizzas for free. Once I got 3 pizzas a garlic bread and a drink for free.

          After everyone received the email, they definitely knew that the code wasn't meant for them - they were not eligible for it.

          What right do people have to be angry at the company? Youfoodz never sent it to them, contacted them, or advertised anything to them.

          If I found a $70 gift card on the street, went to the store and tried to use it, and the store said "sorry, this gift card was issued to Mr X, only he can use it", should I get angry and demand compensation?

        •  

          @eug:

          Again that is like 99% of the codes on Ozbargain, Majority of the codes or deals or samples here arent really meant for the people on Ozbargain who end up using them.

          By the By, I have been getting marketing emails from YouFoodz now with specials and promotions etc and guess what their current email spam is about 20$ off the order,which is the exact same value they have offered all the people who got inconvenienced and hence gave away their accounts and emails as well as youfoodz had their money earning interest for at least a day or 2.

          And finally again, your last example is not equivalent since again in your own example, you are saying the store refused the gift card and hence you didnt have to give any of your details or pay any monies / place any orders and then get told a day or 2 later that the order has been cancelled. If your example occured here, people would just say…Code is targeted or code is invalid etc etc. And no-one would have any beef about it. The problem was your example DID NOT happen in this circumstance as the order and code was approved and the payment taken….

          By the By, I have been getting marketing emails from YouFoodz now with specials and promotions etc

          You didn't untick the box when paying? I haven't received a single email from them apart from the order confirmation, then refund notice.

          The problem was your example DID NOT happen in this circumstance as the order and code was approved and the payment taken…

          …because they used a code that they weren't eligible for.

          @lonewolf: You too. People are upset at a company because they used a coupon code that they found on the net. The company never gave it to them or advertised to them.

          With my example above, if I found a $70 gift card on the street, went to the store's website and ordered a $79 item and paid $9, then the company contacts me saying sorry, that gift card is not yours so we have to cancel the order and refund the $9, should I be demanding compensation?

        •  

          @eug:

          No I dont miss the point because i actually respond to your example with the reasons being why its different and why people reacted differently, and you completely dismissed it without responding to it.

          Anyway i get the feeling you are either associated with them or just looking for an argument as i have attempted to help you empathise with why people have responded the way they have with reasons behind it as well as showing you how your examples and hence the way you are thinking of it is different to what actually happened or how other people took it. But either there is no empathy or no wanting to understand.

    I have ordered more than 20 meals from youfoodz. The flavor and texture was below average and the portion was not enough for an average adult man. It is not worth for the money.

    Your "promotion" made it easier to say goodbye.

  •  

    hey mine arrived today,

    tried the green curry chicken which was really amazing. Thought it would be a bit crappy quality.

    All the meals look good and it smelt awesome.

    I reheated it in the oven.

    Some people say they are small which is true but I dont want a huge dinner, some meals are way too big now ie: Chicken parma at restaurants. I know we think we are getting good value because its so big but we literally only need half of that.

    anyway just my 2 cents, interested to know what others think as I think I'd like to order it again. Will try the 7 other meals before i decided :)
