Over the past year, I have seen a number of different digital payment mobile apps released, where you can send your orders to participating restaurants (usually delis and restaurants with to go menus) and pay via your phone, and then when you get to the actual brick & mortar shop, you can skip the line and just pick up your food. It’s an ingenious idea to increase sales and improve convenience for customers during the busy lunch hour rushes–especially in major cities like San Francisco.
While the convenience may not be something you need, what should get your attention is that many of these app companies have been releasing promotional codes for free cash to spend at these restaurants. Earlier this summer, I received $35 in free cash from GoPago that fueled my lunches in San Francisco for a few days. (And these were at some pretty tasty sandwich shops and take out places too!)
Today, I want to feature and talk about LevelUp. I also have a free promotional $5 code for new users to give out as well, so read on on.
LevelUp is a mobile payment option that works almost like having your own tab combined with your own rewards card for that restaurant. It’s currently for iOS and Android devices only, but all you do is download the app and setup your account (requires a debit or credit card). Once you it setup, you can go to any participating store (and there are A LOT! I’ve checked San Francisco and you can find them just about everything) and just order how you normally would. Once you get to the checkout, you just take your mobile device with LevelUp opened, and just scan the QR code on your screen. It charges you for the order digitally, but the big benefit is that LevelUp automatically gives you a few extra digital dollars to spend on each participating store! Plus you get the $5 promo code if you sign up using the link I’ll mention shortly! That can EASILY be a free lunch, and also discounts for future lunches.
Ready to snag your free lunch and score discounts on your future lunches?
Follow these instructions:
- Download the LevelUp app on your iOS or Android device.
- You can create your LevelUp either online here or through your mobile device after you have the app downloaded.
- When creating your new account, use the promotion code “EVSBZ0” and you’ll get $5 to spend anywhere on LevelUp!
- And that’s it! Next time you go out to lunch at a participating store, your lunch should be on LevelUp. Enjoy 🙂
LevelUp also releases promotional codes periodically so look out for those!
Free (good tasting) food is always a treat. 🙂
On the Amazon front, I just got tipped off via Slickdeals that MasterCard is having a promotion where if you enter the promo code “MSTRCRD1” at check-out for a subscribe & save item, and use your MasterCard to pay, and you will get 15% off instead of the normal 5% off. While this is eligible for select products that actually have subscribe & save options, it’s still a great promo code to keep handing to save you a few extra bucks. Combine this with Amazon Prime and you’ll also have free two day shipping. Promo code can be used multiple times, but is only valid on the first subscribe & save shipment! (Keep in mind you can cancel subscribe & save subscriptions at any time via your Account settings, so it really makes no sense *not* to click subscribe & save if you want to buy an item.)
Eligible for products in:
- Household Supplies
- Nutrition & Fitness
- Pet Supplies
Enjoy your Labor Day Saturday folks! 🙂
(Disclaimer: The promotion code is part of LevelUp’s referral program. I’ll receive $5 in credit if you sign up using my code, and actually make a purchase.)
