Horizon Zero Dawn PS4 ₹151
 
 
A physical copy of Horizon Zero Dawn was going for 151/- only?
I mean it's not expensive otherwise but that's crazy cheap.


Also I received a Zomato Gold voucher code today, for my HDFC Regalia card.
I already have a membership, so will stack on top of it, extending my membership?

No coupon can be stacked along with Gold membership. Coupon + cashback can be combined and Gold + cashback too, but coupon + Gold is not allowed.
Gold is now sh*t imo, so no point in getting it unless you're getting it for free.

They've stopped 1+1 and 2+2 on most places and have replaced it with 10-20% discount

Gold on delivery is good for lazy people like me who mostly orders online instead of going to the restaurant

The selection of restaurants in delivery where i live is abysmal to say the least.

And most of those restaurants offer 40% off as it is which is better imo

But even in that they do jhol that if normally a item is priced at say 200 if you use gold they price the item at super inflated price like mrp 500 or something and then give you 1+1 which turns out more costly than buying it at 200.

Also like another guy said ever since they started gold on delivery it's become horrible. Most places which had 1+1 food on dine in are gone, daily restriction of just one unlock per day etc make it a bad proposition now.

I remember once my order became expensive by 50 bucks or so after applying gold. Ridiculous.

I got Zomato Gold a couple months ago only, the options may be less but there are a few restaurants which I frequent and they still are on gold. I made my sub fees back in 2 visits.

Also, their new dine feature saved me a few bucks. 

It's not as good as it used to be, I guess now it's only for people who use it again and again on the same restaurants.

 

Swiggy on the other hand has been saving me money, it may add delivery and restaurant charges but I always pay equal or less after applying offer or using some UPI.

Can't complain even if I am getting stuff for the same price as dine in or MRP but getting it delivered to me.

Exactly my point, gold used to be so awesome, it's absolutely crap now. I guess tumne model was not sustainable. There is this another membership called gourmet passport, they aren't any good either.

The discounts on swiggy are good i will admit. Also if you get swiggy super at a cheap price it's really good as you get free delivery and you end up saving a lot.

Crazy  47% sale going on Big basket ,

Already ordered twice 

About to order again.

 

So many daily essentials and grocery like cheese, chicken, frozen food, vegetables, paneer etc on 47% off - enough items to make an entire order of only 47% items.

I think Zomato, Swiggy and all other food services providers have inflated prices in their menu. So you end up paying the actual price even after getting the discount so makes no sense. Only plus point is that you get food at your doorstep. 

I've never used these services and have checked at two food joints where the price at the menu is way less than what online is provided.

Though as not as great as it was, Zomato Gold is still good in Bangalore. 
 

Yes in some restaurants, prices are inflated. Also they charge for packaging/convenience charges which are free in takeway or dine in which eats into the small discounts like 50-80 like in Swiggy
