MealPal Promo Code for $50 off!
Many of my friends and co-workers started using MealPal in San Francisco. And it sounded like such a great deal. For some reason, I decided not to jump on the MealPal bus at that point. Don’t know why because if you’re buying lunch everyday, it’s no-brainer. Basically, you sign up for a subscription for a predetermined amount of meals each at approximately $6 per meal. The meals are pre-made by the restaurant en masse in a specific timeframe so it’s at it’s freshest and all you do is pick it up.
In a nutshell, MealPal is subsidized lunch from extremely-local restaurants for discounted. At six to seven dollars per meal (cheaper if you’re on the bigger plans) is a savings of 30-50% off in cities like New York and San Francisco if you were to go out and buy lunch yourself. When comparing that to $14 salads and $12 sandwiches, MealPal is fantastic. Plus there’s no need to wait in line and you can choose from a variety of cuisines.
Business Insider wrote a great summary of all the MealPal benefits and why someone like me is drawn to the service:
MealPal is a sweet deal if you already pay upwards of $10 for lunch in cities like New York. If you usually go out for lunch, want to explore new restaurants, and enjoy avoiding lines, it’s perfect. But there is a limited menu, and if you’re on a food budget like me, the price still doesn’t beat grocery shopping and bringing your own lunch.
Basically, if you like trying different foods, convenience and relatively-cheap meals, you’ll like it. But it probably won’t be cheaper than cooking at home and bringing lunch to work.
What makes it even better and more affordable? Sometimes, Mealpal offers a promotion where they give you a $50 Amazon giftcard when you sign up.
Formerly known as MealPass before re-branding in 2016, the service is brought to you by the same minds behind Classpass.
