Deliveroo Launches New Eat In To Help Out Scheme On 1 September
Deliveroo is launching its own version of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme from 1 September, knocking £5 off delivery on orders above £20.
The company has announced that it is slashing prices throughout the month in order to support smaller businesses.
Just like the government's scheme, the offer will be available on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, with customers being given a different code every week so that they can claim the reduction.
According to reports, about 16,000 restaurants and eateries have already signed up to Deliveroo's 'Eat In to Help Out' scheme.
Larger chains have also been given the option to take part, though they will have to fund the discount themselves.
And if that wasn't enough, new customers are also being given 14 days' free delivery throughout September and October. So there are some massive savings to be made.
Speaking about the scheme, Deliveroo founder Will Shu said the company was keen to help protect the most vulnerable businesses through this crisis.
He said: "Deliveroo is passionate about supporting local restaurants, who are central to our business and to so many high streets across the UK.
"Our restaurant partners play a vital role in our economy, just as they do people's everyday lives, bringing people the food they love.
"We know they have been hit hard recently, and we hope Our Eat IN to Help Out scheme can play a part in helping their businesses through this difficult period."
The codes you'll need to claim your £5 discount on orders worth £20 or more are date-dependent. Here's the code for each date:

1-2 September: EATIN1
7-9 September: EATIN2
14-16 September: EATIN3
21-23 September: EATIN4
28-30 September: EATIN5
Codes are only available for use once per week, and expire after the first 100,000 redemptions - so you'll have to be quick.
This comes after thousands said they would like to see the government's ambitious scheme continue past August.
With the scheme ending next week, we asked our readers whether they believe it would be a good idea to see it continue for another month.
And it's fair to say the result was pretty one-sided, with 79.9 percent of the 16,721 people who took part voting for it to stay put for the time being.
The scheme, which is backed with government money, gives diners 50 percent off their meals up to £10 a head, from Monday to Wednesday each week in August at participating restaurants.
The aim was to help the hospitality industry get back on its feet following months of uncertainty during the coronavirus pandemic.
Unsurprisingly, it's proved to be massively popular with people looking to make a saving while also wanting to get back to some kind of normality.
There was a debate among readers over how it could adversely impact the economy if it were to carry on beyond 31 August, however, with some pointing out that it had hindered the weekend business and also plunged the country into further debt.
