When Uber launched its food delivery service in Australia there were several companies that had run this business such as Deliveroo and Menulog. Both well-established companies had been operating for more than two years and it was widely used by foodies around the country. In addition to these two companies, Uber also needs to be prepared to compete with other global companies that are starting to open their divisions in the country such as DoorDash.

In such fierce competition in the food delivery field, it’s no surprise that Uber has to do various ways to promote its services. One method used is offering promo codes. This marketing strategy has been used by various businesses, which include Uber itself into their rideshare services and has proven successful in growing their rideshare user base significantly.

By using promo codes, Uber Eats users will be able to enjoy discounts in line with the value linked inside the code. Voucher or promo codes are usually provided to attract new Eats users who have never used their food delivery service before. In addition, they sometimes also give promo codes to existing users who often use their services. The goal is to keep its users into their platform.
