For the first time, two controversial tech companies have teamed up, and Deliveroo has announced that Amazon Prime members will receive free delivery on food orders for a year.
Prime members in the UK and Ireland can claim a free “Deliveroo Plus” membership and eliminate courier charges for meals over £ 25.
This transaction is equivalent to £ 3.49 / month of Deliveroo Plus “Silver”. Customers who sign up for Amazon Prime, including TV and movie streaming services, pay £ 7.99 per month.
Deliveroo, who has been accused of poor wages and working conditions, like Amazon, said the move combines two giants in the delivery industry.
According to the platform, Amazon has more than 200 million paying members worldwide, but Deliveroo is currently affiliated with 50,000 restaurants in the UK alone.
According to the company, the new offer is expected to attract new “highly engaged, digitally savvy customers” and increase the loyalty of its existing 3.9 million UK monthly users.
