More than meals on demand, foodpanda offers convenience, savings and round-the-clock delivery for all your household needs. Plus, you can now earn yuu Points for a more rewarding experience. Just last year, Singaporeans were found to work the longest hours in the Asia-Pacific, with an average of 45 hours a week. With the pandemic blurring the lines between work and leisure, things have only gotten worse

In fact, a newly published study found one in two Singaporeans reporting decreased capability to handle stress, leading to warnings that we’re on the verge of an “epidemic of stress”.

Being overworked and highly stressed can result in not having the time or energy for important tasks such as preparing home-cooked meals, or even keeping the pantry properly stocked, making it important to have convenient solutions that can simplify your life. 

Thank goodness for on-demand doorstep delivery services like foodpanda, which ensures a piping hot meal, favourite groceries, or household essentials are just a few taps away.  

But with several new partnerships now in the mix, foodpanda offers more than just convenience; it can help you simplify your life, and even make everyday tasks more rewarding!

Let’s take a look at all the ways foodpanda can make your life easier.

#1. Shop the best grocery deals 

foodpanda isn't just for quick and convenient food delivery anymore. You can now also shop for your favourite groceries and household essentials and have them delivered whenever you need them.

The platform has partnered up with DFI Retail Group, which means you can shop from both Cold Storage and Giant right from foodpanda. 

And here’s the best part: The prices you see on foodpanda are exactly the same as those found in stores, with no markup whatsoever! Also, your groceries will be delivered within one hour, and you can even schedule the delivery at your preferred time slot.  

But what if you have a craving for frozen pizza at 3am after a night out partying? Or ran out of Panadol and you’re having a headache? 

Simply hit up foodpanda’s own online grocery, pandamart, for 24-hour delivery for household essentials, including over-the-counter medications, snacks, cosmetics and fresh produce. 


#2. Save time and money with pick-up options

Planning to pick up dinner on the way home, but don’t want to deal with long waits during rush hour? 

Use foodpanda pick-up options instead. You can send in your order via the app, and choose a pick-up time that suits you. When you arrive at the restaurant, your order will be freshly packed and ready to go. 

This way, you can save time by avoiding long waits and also enjoy savings of up to 30% off selected vendors with exclusive foodpanda discounts and offers. So the next time you’re planning to tapao dinner from that chicken rice stall down the road, try putting in a pick-up order on foodpanda. 


#3. Discover new dining options on dine-in 

Deciding what to eat can be a bigger pain than it needs to be, especially when you’re planning for meals during the holiday period. Sometimes all you need is some fresh ideas. 

foodpanda shows you multiple meal options near you, including restaurants with dine-in offers and promos. 

See a restaurant you want to eat at? Simply choose the restaurant in the foodpanda app under "dine-in", and tap "Redeem & pay". Pay the amount you see calculated in the app, and you're all set!

Want even more savings when dining at restaurants? pandapro members can enjoy additional perks, including larger discounts of up to 50% off your entire restaurant bill – all for a low monthly subscription.

#4. Arrange for on-demand deliveries with pandago

Need to send a parcel quickly or forgot something at home? foodpanda has a simple solution for you - their round-the clock courier service, pandago. 

Unlike other courier services where you pay different rates for varying parcel weights and sizes, with pandago, you pay based on the distance. This means you can pack and send anything as long as it fits in the delivery bag (33 x 33 x 18cm), is up to 5kg, and is not illegal or dangerous. 

You can track your delivery in real-time on the foodpanda app, and the recipient will receive the parcel in an hour or less. 

Enjoy 30% off pandago services with this exclusive promo code: GOPANDA. Promo is capped at S$5 and is available to all users, with one redemption per user. Valid till 31 December 2023. 


#5. Enjoy more “me time” with foodpanda shops

foodpanda can save you a trip for other items besides groceries, household needs and meals. 

Spanning an array of leading brands like Lego and Xiaomi, foodpanda shops is your online shopping mall at your fingertips. 

You can use it to purchase a variety of goods, including alcohol, floral bouquets, electronics, video games, mom and baby essentials, etc., allowing you to have more time to yourself during your precious weekends.



#6. Enjoy free deliveries and other exclusive benefits with pandapro

While having the convenience of getting your food and groceries delivered to your doorstep can help make your life easier, the delivery charges can add up.

Thankfully, you can circumvent this by subscribing to pandapro. As a pandapro member, you can enjoy these monthly benefits:

  • S$4 off food delivery vouchers, valid on all restaurants (min. spend applies) 
  • S$0 delivery fee vouchers on groceries via pandamart (min. spend applies)
  • S$0 delivery fee vouchers on Cold Storage and Giant (min. spend applies)
  • S$0 delivery fee on selected foodpanda shops brands (min. spend applies)
  • 10% off pick-up vouchers (no. min spend)
  • Up to 50% off entire dine-in bill at partner restaurants (no. min spend)
  • Up to 35% off food delivery deals (min. spend applies)

#7. Making everyday more rewarding

Convenience and savings are great and all, but does foodpanda offer any rewards for using the service? The answer is yes, and it’s a pretty attractive reward system to boot!

foodpanda is now listed as a partner merchant on yuu, which means you can collect reward points on your foodpanda transactions. Each dollar spent will earn you one yuu Point, which is equivalent to 0.5% cashback. 

The yuu Points earned can be used to offset subsequent purchases on foodpanda, or spent at other participating merchants. This means greater freedom to spend your rewards as you choose.
