Lazy to leave the house to eat this Chinese New Year holiday? Two delivery services have you covered with lower or free delivery fees.

GrabFood, the on-demand delivery service, is offering free deliveries with the promo code 28DAYS in February for up to 28 orders. In other words, you can enjoy free delivery for the entire month even if you order every day.   

The offer only applies for orders with a minimum value of RM20.

Foodpanda, on the other hand, says it has dropped the delivery fee from RM3 to RM1.88 in the Klang Valley, while those in Penang, Johor Bahru and Kota Kinabalu will have their delivery fees dropped from RM2 to RM0.88.

The promotion runs until Feb 19.

“Food brings people together and what better way to celebrate the New Year than with the lucky number eight? Not only is eight known to be a lucky number in the Chinese culture, but the number 88 bears a resemblance to shuang xi, or double happiness,” says Foodpanda managing director Sayantan Das in a press release.

The service will also be offering yee sang packages from its partner restaurants.
