My Zomato Gold Membership

Life

When I heard Zomato Gold was coming to Australia and launching in Melbourne, I instantly felt cheated that it wasn’t in my home town of Sydney. I reassured myself that with all the other discounted deals available through apps/sites like the Fork, EatClub and First Table, I would be fine and I wouldn’t be missing out. Plus those apps/sites give you discounts for free (except for First Table which charges a $10 reservation fee to access the discount), so why would I pay a monthly or annual membership fee for Zomato Gold?!

Well, that was all good in theory, but when Zomato announced Gold was coming to Sydney early this year, I all of a sudden wanted in on the action. I pre-registered to be given the first notice that it was open for memberships and a discount of 60% off the annual fee if I joined early…but that discount never came! I stumbled upon the fact Gold was open whilst on Zomato one day, but they were offering 50% discount to everyone. Miffed I didn’t get the promised 60%, I decided to not take part.

The 50% discount offer was there for weeks and I became complacent that I could take it if I really wanted it. I held the power in this relationship. Until…whilst browsing Zomato for a cafe for brunch I started seeing places doing 10-15% discounts on food for Gold members. Ok, I’m in! But oh no, the membership discount offer was gone…

However when Valentine’s Day rolled around the 50% discount returned. I pounced on it like it was a straight single man in his late 30’s who was over 6 foot and still had all his hair! I paid $44 and was instantly a Gold member and discovered that I will use the app to pay for my meals via my stored credit card details to access discounts off my bill.
