Postmates is finally live in all the major cities of Texas now including Houston and Dallas. This will make every restaurant or store in these Texas hubs available for on-demand delivery in minutes. You can also get things like concert tickets delivered! Deliveries in both cities are free thru February 15th and you can get a $60 credit in Houston and Dallas.
To celebrate, Postmates teamed up with two local favorites for special launch day promotions. In Houston, get FREE Mini Pies On-Demand from the legendary House of Pies, Tuesday and Wednesday at 12pm. In Dallas, they’re bringing you a dozen FREE assorted cookies from the beloved JD’s Chippery, Tuesday and Wednesday at 1pm. Just find either store in the app or on the web and place your order before they’re gone (limit 1 per customer).
They are offering $10 off free credit if you use promo code 478n. You may download the app here.
Be sure to share code TEXASVIP with friends in the area for $50 in delivery fee credit good till the end of the month.
Postmates delivers your groceries on-demand for those who do not want to wait in the “express lane” or just do not have the time to make it to the store.
Here’s how it works:
1. Search for Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Kroger or any other grocery store in the app
2. Select inventory from the catalog or enter them in the custom list
3. Place your order and get delivery in under an hour
We tested Postmates with an order from the local Whole Foods. The app can be used to track the progress of your order as a delivery driver or “Postmate” is assigned to pick up the items. If they have a question, they can give you a call or a message. It kind of works like Uber in that you can follow your delivery around via a map in the app and know when it will arrive.
When your items arrive, the total fee is automatically charged to your card through Postmates. Postmates then sends out an email receipt with a picture of the physical receipt from the store to let you know everything was legit. There is a $5.75 flat fee for the 1-hour delivery and a 9% convenience fee based on the total cost. The Postmate who brings your stuff gets part of the 9% convenience fee, but you can tip extra if you like.
