      We've noticed that you're very hungry for some more HelloFresh and we don't blame you.

      Unfortunately, our records show that your household already has a HelloFresh subscription and unfortunately our vouchers are only valid once per household.

      used a different email but the same payment method I think?

            @lawyerz: Hey mate. Thinking of getting revolut just for the free disposable cards… The website says only fee paying 'premium' and 'metal' accounts get disposable cards. You get this with standard account?

              @jimboner: just to reaffirm, yes I'm getting disposable cards with the standard free account. I'm not on any trial or whatever, and its been 3 weeks but I've used the disposable card feature several times now.

              Not sure whats up with the discrepancy with the website details.

    • +2 votes

      I have been on and off again claimed a few free boxes and finally settled into HCF 10% discount on all boxes including future deliveries. Some meals are fantastic and other times bit mediocre. The most important thing is convenience and letting go of worrying about what to cook. We go for 3 deliveries a week and some kids friendly meals have been a hit in our household.

      Our best cooks so far have been
      - all salmon dishes
      - pesto crumbed chicken with salad
      - roast cherry tomato and pesto pasta ( this was smashing good)

  • +6 votes

    Just started this. On the second box. Pretty big meals and tasty. Lots of sauce (too much for some meals), so add sauce to food gradually rather than food to sauce. Could possibly get 3 small meals from the 2 meal packs. Everyplate is a bit smaller and cheaper, but not as good. There are heaps of companies doing this to trial (in cities).

    You have to change or cancel about 8 days before delivery so don’t leave it too late.

    Great meals, great portion sizes, great referral program. Hello fresh are the pick of the meal delivery services I have tried…

  • +1 vote

    This is new to me. So are they cooked meals delivered to you or just packed ingredients for you to cook?

    • +5 votes

      Fresh ingredients with instruction cards for you to cook. If you look on their website (or the cards) you'll see each meal has preparation and cooking time estimates so you can pick the faster (or more laborious) options. If that's your thing…

      • +3 votes

        Thanks for the clarification.

      The latter. You can pay extra for prepared meals, but referral credit doesn't count towards it.

    Edit: I should've read above umm maybe I'm hungry 👍😁

    • +6 votes

      Definitely not.

      You're after a YouFoodz or something from your supermarket freezer. These are all market fresh and do require some knifework and prep time - and often, an offensive amount of bowls, pots and pans. The effort is justified though - great flavours and freshness, and you'll learned plenty of new techniques and recipes along the way…

      • +3 votes

        Your words certainly sound tasty, thanks something I might look into cheers 👍😁

        Edit: Wondering how often do these deals pop up for HelloFresh?

        • +3 votes

          Often - they are a constant part of their customer acquisition strategies, but this one worth $100 is as good as it gets since I've been a member.

        I'd echo this

        I've gone from cooking less than 10 meals in 15 years of marriage (outside bbq, pizza and spag Bol), to cooking 2-3 times a week for our family

        I don't love it, but I definitely don't hate it and it's very easy to follow the steps.

        Minus occasionally forgetting a few things

        • +2 votes

          Ill echo on this.

          This takes the "effort" out of cooking for me which is deciding on the meal, shopping for it, and then making it.

          Having the cards and everything ready makes it super nice for me personally.

            @Jofzar: Also less waste. You do not need to buy a whole whatever of something and have the remainder go off. You just get the amount you need.

    Sorry, maybe I'm being stupid but how do you make this work? There are no instructions and the link doesn't take you to a discount.

      The referral link works perfectly fine for me. Plus the instruction after "***Tip" is as clear is it gets. Reread the OP might help. Not sure why you neg the deal just because you didn't read the OP properly.

    Hmmm. Not sure why this deal with it's current 64 + votes, doesn't show up on my front page (with default settings). I think it's the best referral deal they've ever offered. Can only assume that because it's a referral deal they are pushed down the scoring analytics to make it harder for the front page to be dominated by such offers.

    Regardless, thanks OP. I've taken the opportunity to send out a few boxes to family members to sample the offering. Cheers.

        Does not seem to work that way for an existing account. I have some credit to use, logged in, re-activated select meals, first window available is 03/07 and can only pause now which would be this order. So looks like have to wait until next week before can pause future weeks.

          No - you can definitely do it on existing accounts too. Just look for the box "Edit my delivery" under the weekly calendar showing delivery schedule.

    • +1 vote

      • +1 vote

        They refunded my money so at least customer service was easy enough to deal with.
        Was told the referral code wasn't accepted. Don't know why, because it was still showing up on the Account as having being accepted.

        Most annoying part though is the page said I would only be billed for Shipping and it was $0 cost before I paid so imagine my surprise when the whole amount was billed.

        Totally get if the referral code doesn't work, or if I'm not a valid customer (for whatever reason - maybe I signed up to HF in another life I cannot remember), but they should tell you your not eligible before they hit you with the full purchase price, instead of showing up as valid.

        Maybe a system error. Anyway, enough to make me not bother trying again.

        • +2 votes

          I had a similar thing happen before, though my case was different to yours. As far as I can theorise, it was seemingly due to a gross error with cookies (not the edible type) in my case.

          Definitely surprised and annoyed to see a full RRP charge after the $0.00 payment page. Fortunately they have livechat at all hours and quickly refunded (though they made out as if they were doing a big favour).

          Since then I always clear cookies and monitor the credit card charges, and it's been smooth sailing. Gotten many boxes with no issue.

      Some referral offers change week to week depending on who your referral is from.

      Last time I checked, the $50 discount also included free shipping, whereas the $70 discount still had $9.99 shipping on top, so it's only really $10 difference.

      If you're determined to get it, just click through the referal link at the top and cross for fingers for a $70 random referral - or keep trying until you get one.

        I’ve found the chicken good every time I’ve gotten it. It’s vacuum sealed. If I had one complaint, it’s the veggies, I find if I don’t cook them right away they go bad very quick.

      Each of the dozen or so campaigns I've indulged in the past year have always had shipping as an additional $9.90.

      The only exception was when they dropped the $70 discount to $50 discount, at which time free shipping was added, albeit for a net loss of $10 worth of value.

      Shy of being gifted the free boxes, this is as good as it gets…

    On my 5th consecutive month with Hello Fresh. I do 3x meals (for 2 people) a month. Their meals have overall been tasty and filling, can recommend.

    My main goal is to try their recipes once a month and then do them on my own as it works out a lot cheaper. Having everything delivered to you fresh is very convenient though.
