Uber Eats customers in South Africa can now get unlimited free delivery through a monthly subscription service, the company announced in an email sent to customers on Friday.
The service, Uber Eats Pass, will cost R50 a month. It includes any restaurant listed on its service within your area.
There is just one big catch: each order must be worth at least R80 for the pass to apply.
The pass also applies to your area of delivery; if you travel outside your home city, you'll pay delivery fees again.
