What is Postmates?
Postmates is kind of the “Uber” of food delivery.
Portland actually really sucks when it comes to food delivery options. If you want hot food brought straight to your door, you can pretty much only get pizza. And don’t get me wrong, I love pizza but sometimes you just need pho, a Killer Burger, Pine State Biscuits or a burrito stat. With Postmates you have a plethora of delicious food options 24 hours a day that can be brought straight to your place of residence. Download the app and enter the promo code “qnak” to see your nearby options.

Delivery Options Include:
Small sample of possible options here in the PDX area.
- Pine State Biscuits (get the Reggie Deluxe)
- Bunk Bar (sandwiches dog)
- Lu Lac (such good pho)
- Los Gorditios (love the Super Stacey Burrito)
- Killer Burger (Peanut Butter Pickle Bacon Burger y’all)
- And so much more!
I’m serious when I say more. Walgreens, Starbucks, New Seasons Market, Taco Bell, Jam On Hawthorn, Koi Fusion, Voodoo Doughnuts, Laughing Planet, Robo Taco, Lardo, Thai food, Sushi, pizzas, Mexican, Korean BBQ and more. Once you get in the app you’ll see a lot of options. One thing I have never done is make a custom order. I think you’re able to pick any place you want and under custom write in the order you know they have. So if you don’t see your favorite food carts menu, you select the establishment, hit custom order and just type the name of the item you want.
Free Food Promotions:
Ok so as you can see we have some really amazing local options when it comes to food delivery but it gets even better. Postmates often does FREE food or really cheap food like $2 burritos or something. I’ve pictured just a few of the free deals I got from Postmates.
- (2) Free Killer burgers
- (2) Free Slices of pizza
- (2) Free Stumptown Coffees
- $2 Koi Fusion Burritos
- $2 Acai Bowls
They do free food weekends all of the time so just get used to it. I know you only see one $2 Koi Fusion burrito there but I ordered it 3 times. Yes that’s 6 burritos for $12. Insane!!! Same with the Killer Burger, I did it twice so that was 4 free burgers. It says limit 2 per order but if they are doing it Friday, Saturday and Sunday, I just get it once per day and it’s worked every time.

How does Postmates work
Well, let’s walk through a transaction.
1) You order from your favorite place via the app.
2) It finds you a “postmate” to carry out your order.
3) They go pick up the food and are on the way to you.
5) The app notifies you at this time and you can now track them in the app map.
6) They arrive, you come out, they hand you the food and that is it. No money exchange, no awkward credit card signing or pauses while waiting for change. You do not even need to have your phone with you.
7) You go back inside, in the app you have the option to tip and rate the driver.
8) Eat your damn food son!
Postmates Is Hiring! Why not?
Need a job here? Since they just expanded to such a large area, there is plenty of room for new drivers.
I don’t know the truth but they claim you can make up to $25 an hour. My ex was a Postmate but she didn’t work very much so she did not make that dollar amount. Are you a current or past delivery driver? Please comment with your experience below.
Bike Delivery Service!
Don’t drive? You can do it on your bike!
I have had several Postmates mob up on a bike with my burritos or even fresh hot soup or smoothies! No problem, all is well. But what I’m saying is if you want to be a bike couriers this is one way to do it.
Since this is quite a long article about the service, it wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t list my bad experiences with Postmates. Well truth is I only have one. I ordered Pho at 9:30pm and the place closes at 10pm so no big deal. Well after 10oclock passed and I hadn’t heard from my driver, I contacted customer support and they said she “had an emergency”(seemed like an excuse from the CS rep) but she didn’t bother telling me after accepting my order. She did not cancel the order so someone else can take it, she did nothing. Passing it along would have taken her no time or effort. She was quick to answer their call though so it was just a flat out no call no show. Postmates did give me an extra free $10 delivery credit for that drivers negligence though. But it was too late, the place was closed, I had been starving for nearly 2 hours and I had to put in a new order and wait all over again because that driver did not care about the customer. I know what you’re saying, poor you. Well when you only have one job and people are using your service, you do your job. Or you get another job. Had I been expecting something outside of the job description and complained it would had been weird but that was all she had to do. Get rid of her. I don’t want to tell people how awesome Postmates is and deal with this crap.
I recommend this service because I love it and use it. By using my promo code of qnak you get your first delivery free because they give you a $10 credit. I also receive a $10 credit so we both win!
