Zomato Gold Membership Subscription: Price, Benefits & Exclusive Promo code
Updated: May 11, 2019
Zomato Gold has become quite a rage ever since it was launched. For those who haven’t tried it yet, this is a paid service by Zomato that allows people to get complimentary food or drinks while dining at select partner restaurants. I have been using it for over 6 months now primarily in Bangalore. Zomato has a good range of restaurants covered in it and it is aggressively partnering with more restaurants across all areas.
I have also experienced Zomato Gold in cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Gurgaon and Hyderabad. I am pretty impressed by their collection and the range of restaurants.
How does it work?
After buying the membership, you simply can visit one of the partner restaurant & click on the “Enjoy your Gold privilege” button that would also indicate the deal. Simply click on unlock the deal option & avail the free item.
There are two types of deals in Zomato: 1+1 on food or 2+2 on drinks. Every partner restaurant offers either one of the two. 1+1 on food will allow you to get 1 complimentary dish that can either be the same dish or a different dish. Basically the dish of lower price will be marked off from the bill. With drinks, on every two drinks, you will get 2 more drinks free of charge. This is valid for a minimum of 2 people. If you have more than multiples of 2, you can unlock more Zomato Gold privileges to avail more discount.
The membership is currently available at Rs 1000 for a year with unlimited unlocks or there’s a starter pack for people who do not want to commit to a long term association & it’s priced at Rs 350 for 3 unlocks.
If you would like to sign up for it, use the code (SJ0058) & get 25% discount on your membership.
Is it worth the hype?
I’d say absolutely! If you are someone like me who likes to step out every now & then, you can get more bang for the buck but even if you are conservative about eating out, you will recover the cost of a year long membership within 3-4 restaurant visits.
Allow me to explain this to you. Lets assume you eat out only twice a month. A cost of a dish in a typical restaurant is around Rs. 300 & you get another dish of upto Rs. 300 completely free of charge.
The cost of Zomato Gold membership is Rs. 800 (considering you use the promo code) & considering you eat out twice, you would end up saving at least Rs. 600. So, within one & a half month, you would end up saving close to Rs. 900. The amount you saved within one & a half month covers the cost of the subscription for the entire year and you still can still avail benefits for another ten and a half months.
The math works out even better if you do the calculation for drinks but I believe you get the drift.
Pro Tip: Do look out for restaurant who have high hygiene rating, that would help you to eat out without compromising on the hygiene aspect.
So, what are you waiting for? Subscribe now & save flat 25%. Use the promocode: SJ0058
Do share your experience too. Would love to hear about it.
