this is some BS.

$2.99 delivery, and then $4.99 delivery when you have 2 sandwiches in your order?
BUTTTTTTTT, a Giant, which is the same size as 2 sandwiches is $2.99 still?

thats fucked.

(and yes. im aware i changed stores between these two screen shots, i wanted to make sure the stores were not changing the delivery fees)

Fee's have totally gotten out of hand, overall. But yeah, that is weird.
I mean, how else do you make money delivering a sandwich that cost $6-10 while paying someone hourly? More like laziness got out of hand. You have to pay for convenience. Food delivery is a ripoff unless you’re drunk.

Exactly. I don’t think ever had anything delivered other than pizza. What a waste of money.

They make their money cause quantity. If you call JJ's by us anywhere from 11:30-12:30, it's 3 minutes down the road but you won't see your sandwich for 30m-1hr. That's how many people order around us. So they make a fuck ton off of it

It's convenient if you're not starving. I'll order usually only when I absolutely do not have time to run out.

Order it on the app, keep working and when it shows it shows.

Also do not min doaying for convenience one bit.

If I had to pay my HOA bill, I'd OP for the online credit card portal rather than having to fill out a check and mail it...

Convenient isn't free

I’m over all these fees and having to tip on top of it all. I’ll just go to the store myself and save a few bucks.
Used door dash once and it was like $25 for a chipotle burrito

Does anyone else get annoyed AF when you go to the store to buy food (jersey mikes comes to mind first) and it asks for a tip when you pay? I don’t feel I should have to tip you 5-20% for making a sandwich which is their job anyway.
Rant over 😝

Just to clarify this is the fact of $2 extra for a second sandwich in a delivery fee, but the giant sandwich which is the size of two sandwiches is the same price delivery fee wise as one sandwich.

I'm not complaining about delivery fees in general because everyone has them. That's not the point of this

Yes. You're thinking too much into it. The big sandwich. Is 1 sandwich. The 2 sandwiches... Well are 2 sandwiches...

That's their logic

Yeah, I've completely given up on delivery. It used to be a $2-3 delivery fee, and then you tipped the driver.

Now, some of these delivery fees are $7-10, AND you are expected to TIP the driver on top of that?

Fuck, If I'm paying up to $10 for delivery then I'm sorry, you are not getting a tip, and as a delivery driver with that kind of fee you should be getting the standard hourly wage + mileage.

I’ve been noticing this is everywhere now even subway, FU I’m not tipping for doing your job, unless you are providing a service to me I will happily hit the no tip button and not feel bad about it.

I never tip if there is no table service.

The amount some people I know use delivery is mind blowing. I have a sister in law who gets door dash from a restaurant 2 blocks from her house, and pizza delivered from a place that’s maybe a mile or two away. The only time I order delivery is if I’m in a hotel for work, and don’t want any of the shitty options that are walking distance.

Send them a note so they can correct it to 4.99 always :rofl:
