with all that snow did you have to walk out in the cold each day to get your lunch? i cant imagine doing that in the winter unless it was like a one block walk maybe.
mealpass is not offering a deal worth buying. you get too little food for too big a commitment, hassle, and sacrifice.
really it should be called snackpass. or kids-meal-pass.
for people who consider joining they are buying a fantasy.
for $5 you dont get a normal sized lunch or quality meat.
use your head. lunch doesnt cost $5 and most likely mealpass is paying restaurants just $4.
what can you get for $4.
no man can do this. maybe a tiny 90lb woman can eat this little but this is certainly not a normal lunch.
no drink is included and with most of the places you cannot eat in their restaurant with your $4 snack; you have to leave with a baggy. I have other complaints like who wants to decide on this lunch snack by 9am (or waste your precious time doing so first thing in the morning). better to go to a place and just pay the normal price or if you care about money (and you should) then bring your own lunch. sorry I must pass.
the photos mealpass uses are fake to me in that they are taken really close up to make the food look bigger. to me that is deceitful. also I have seen restaurants put several meals on the same plate for the photo because they dont want to have just 1 tiny sandwich on a plate. that is also deceitful.
another groupon business model
i thinki it is more like groupon than it is like classpass yet your not getting a money deal like you are with classpass if you go a lot. for $5 you are getting no more than $4-5 worth of food.
restaurants that signed up for Mealpass are destroying their brand.
nobody is going to go back to your restaurant at full price.
you are training customers that your food is not worth it.
they may come for your $5 meal snack but not more.
mealpass is the groupon deal already rejected by restaurants.
thank you for your post
