Postmates-Thumb

Some places offer delivery and some don't. This is the way things are, sure, but that doesn't make life any easier for the busier (or lazier) among us. There's an itch to be scratched here, and Postmates steps in to handle it. The service turns any restaurant or grocery store into one that's able to deliver to your door. It does this by paying people to read your shopping list, pick everything up, and bring it to you.

Before now Postmates only served Chicago, New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington DC. Now it serves Los Angeles as well. The supported areas include Beverly Hills, Culver City, Marina Del Rey, Santa Monica, Venice, Westwood, and West Hollywood.

To celebrate the launch, Postmates is currently delivering Stan’s Doughnuts on-demand for free. Just look for the store within the app and select two free donuts. Even the delivery fee (typically $5.75 flat fee for a 1-hour delivery and a 9% convenience fee based on the total cost) is waived.

The company is also offering $50 in delivery credit to the first 500 customers in Los Angeles. Use the code LAFRIEND and share it with others. Just know that it expires on June 30th.

    It's hovering right around 100 degrees this afternoon in LA. I'd fee like a major tool forcing someone to deliver two free donuts to me, especially so if they showed up on a bike. Yikes :(
