Amazon launched its rival to Deliveroo and Uber Eats last week, Amazon Restaurants*, which allows people living or working in mainly central London postcodes to order takeaway food via the Amazon Prime Now app. What’s more, you can get £10 off your first order of £15+ with a code.
The deal’s available to anyone who hasn’t ordered from Amazon Restaurants before, and you don’t need to be a new Prime Now app user to be eligible. Amazon says the menu price will be the same as you’d pay at the restaurant and delivery is free (but there’s a minimum spend of £15 on all orders – before any discount is applied).
Who can get £10 off £15?
You must meet all three of the following criteria:
1. You need to be a Prime member (if not, sign up for a free trial). Prime is Amazon’s premium subscription that gives speedy delivery and other perks. Yet this’ll also work if you’re on a Prime free trial, so providing you’ve not had one before, sign up* to get a 30-day Prime membership for free.
Warning: After the free trial, Prime costs £79 a year. So if you don’t want that, cancel before the trial ends (see our Amazon Prime Reclaim guide).
2. You’ll need an eligible postcode for delivery. If you live/work in one of these postcodes, you can order food via Amazon Restaurants: E1, E2, E3, E5, E8, E9, N1, N16, EC1, EC2, EC3, EC4, SW1, SW3, W1, SW3, W1, WC1, WC2, SE1, SE11.
3. You must be ordering via Amazon Restaurants for the first time. Once you’ve downloaded the app (for iPhone, Android and most Amazon/Fire devices, but not Windows, BlackBerry or tablets) and entered an eligible postcode, add the code AMAZON10 at the checkout by 31 Dec 2017 to get £10 off when you spend at least £15. You’ll be charged a £2 tip automatically unless you opt out at the checkout.
If you haven’t entered an eligible postcode, you won’t be able to see the Amazon Restaurants section of the app. You can enter a different postcode by going to ‘change location’ in the app menu.
Which restaurants can I order from?
There are currently around 150 restaurants available to order from via Amazon Restaurants, including Strada, Planet Hollywood, Tossed and Pizza Pilgrims. It’s mainly London-based restaurants, but there are a few bigger chains. See the full list in Amazon’s press release.
Find food cheaper? Get a refund
Amazon says if you find the same meal cheaper on the restaurant’s online menu within 24 hours, it will refund you for that item.
Not used the Prime Now app before?
If you’re new to the Prime Now app, you can also get £5 off a £20 spend on thousands of products until Fri 30 Sep. See our Amazon Prime Now Trick for full details.
