How to Get Virtually Anything Delivered (Plus a $10 Postmates Code)

PostmatesOne of the things I loved about living in New York City was that I could get anything delivered. Not only food from my favorite restaurants but even tissues or Tylenol if I was sick. Since moving to LA, it’s been a bit of an adjustment because no one seemed to deliver except pizza and Chinese restaurants. But thankfully, times are changing, not only here in LA but all over the US. That’s due to the rise in delivery services and there’s none greater than Postmates.

My niece was the first to turn me onto the service and she lives in New York City, but yesterday, I was eating at Joan’s on Third in West Hollywood and I kept seeing delivery men walk in with Postmates bags. I downloaded their free app (available on iOS and Android and you can also use their web app for iOS and Android) and realized they are all over major and not-so-major US cities (here’s the list). I just input my address and a whole slew of options for delivery and their arrival times showed up. I could get breakfast, lunch, dinner, groceries, office supplies, pet food, or anything I wanted delivered, including food from fancy restaurants and not-so-fancy restaurants, including all the fast food chains. I no longer have to run out to Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Staples, or Walgreens if I forget something. I could even get travel gear from REI. They charge a 9% service fee on all orders unless you have a Plus Unlimited membership, which is for frequent users since it’s $9.99 a month for free delivery on all Postmates Plus orders over $25.

BTW: If you use my code tlsia you (and I) get free delivery up to $10 on your first order!
