Mr. Faultier refuses to pay full price for pizza or any other delivery service. This is probably not a surprise for anyone who knows him.
In the US, if you want to order a pizza online – we don’t do phone orders, because that requires too much social interaction – you have to go to the website of the pizza place itself and place your order. Maybe you can luck out with deals, or scour the web for coupon codes, but you are at the mercy of the company you want to order from.
In Germany, third-party websites like Pizza.de, Lieferheld, and Lieferando allow you to order from participating stores in your area through their websites and apps. And if you create an account and download their apps, they will regularly send you coupons for a few Euros off your next order. This is why my phone has 3 pizza apps.
They won’t send you coupons all the time, but it’s often enough to get our delivery fix. Pizza.de and Lieferheld send out more coupons than Lieferando, but we discovered recently that Lieferheld won’t let you stack coupons, but Pizza.de will. This means that you can hold on to your Pizza.de coupons for a little while and see if they send you another one before the first expires and you can get double the savings.
We aren’t a full-price family, so this works pretty well for us. If you’re in Germany for awhile, get those pizza apps, and get all the coupons!
