    They had this trial as of at least yesterday before the announcement. I think they're just pushing notifications through to Victorians to take advantage of everyone being stuck at home.

      The "Service fee" might as well be called the "F*** you fee".

    Am I reading this correctly:
    - $20 off one grocery order each month for the next 3 months (min. $30 excl. fees)
    - Subscription is $14.99/month.

    I don't know how much the fees are, but you could be a net $ winner (for 3 months) if you play it right.

      The groceries are incredibly marked up

      The "grocery" stores seem to be expensive mini marts or convenience stores.

    Some people complaining in reviews about an overall cost increase in Ubers after the trial to try push you onto the paid version of the pass. Beware.

    Uber Pass for $15/month and you still need to pay $20 (which means $2 service fee) for free delivery and this isn't even all places.
    Or you could just use the 'delivery partners' tab for free with the same min spend.

    I hate companies that advertise free delivery but charge you a handling service fee.

    Its almost as if delivery outside of pizza and chinese places was never profitable so they never bothered!

    2 steps backward: Mandatory service fee, paid subscription for free delivery
    1 step forward: Free trial

    10% off Uber rides too, 15% off Uber premium.

    The service fee is more expensive than delivery a lot of the times, don't know if there is a lot of value if you are looking to use it for delivery only

    "…we will continue to support your local restaurants, cafes and grocery stores…" With fees of 36%+GST on the total order value.

    If you're honestly thinking of using uber (or Menulog or whatever), order the absolute bare minimum like a bottle of soft drink, then ring the restaurant and order everything else but tell them to bundle it with the uber order you just made for a bottle of soft drink.

    Do they charge you $14.99 on the spot? Terms and conditions implies so.

      I thought the same as well! I just signed up - confirming they do not charge $14.99 on the spot.

    Service fee kind of kills this.
