Brownie points for this, since it is one major factor in keeping the food fresh and piping hot when it reached me when I ordered it during my recent train journey! Glance over the photos to get a hang of this and nod in agreement.

What Came On My Plate from RailYatri

Knowing how I can’t do away with my love for Italian food, the first order was definitely a Pizza. The meal was not only confined to this, there was a special wow box which was a meal in itself. The portion size was good, decent to suffice two people easily as it’s filling and homelike. The food came in fresh, and the flavours were spot on. Quite surprising to have that taste sitting in a train.

CouponzGuru: Strike the best deal on online purchase of grocery!

The world has gone digital. From online shopping of clothing and accessories, the trend has now shifted to buying your grocery at the click of a button from the comfort of your house. Juggling between work and family, sparing time from the routine for a trip to the vegetable market is a tedious task. Adding to the misery is of course the chaos in these crowded markets, and a struggle to bargain the right deal for our products. After ordering from Peppertap once, I switched to the method of ordering my groceries online in one go. This helps me get better deals, more discounts and needless to say, saving a majority chunk of time!

While scrolling through Internet recently, I came across the website www.couponzguru.com. A regular online shopper like me would seek solace in grabbing great discounts and deals on the monthly purchases. The website is very user-friendly and is broadly divided into various categories ranging from Food, Clothing and Travel. To avail the discount, you simply need to apply the coupon code from Couponz Guru at the time of payment at the particular online portal. In case you choose a deal, the process is even quicker and you get the discount automatically once you meet the criteria to avail the deal.

Biggies in the food ordering apps like GrofersBig Basket,  PeppertapNearbuy also offer reasonably well deals on www.couponzguru.com. Though I have tried Peppertap once, whose shopping experience you can read here, the entire experience was elevated with a humongous deal on my purchase on this app. To satiate those odd time snacking, you can also get deals on QSR chains like Dominos who promise to deliver great food in 30 minutes and now in the most affordable deal as well.

A boon for online shoppers, CouponzGuru is sure to help planned and intelligent shoppers fetch great deals on their next purchase of groceries and ordering food online. While I sum up my experience as a pure money saver, I would love to hear your experience too 🙂

Peppertap Comes To Gluttony Goddess’ Rescue!

 

pepper-tap01

The trend of buying grocery in bulk and storing it in pantry or refrigerator for weeks is a thing of the past. From buying a pin to a plane, from a smartphone to branded clothing, almost anything and everything can be delivered at your doorstep within no time.

Convenience is the key and time is the hero. I have never fancied cooking and always preferred the easier part i.e. eating. However, one fine day when I decide to overtake the kitchen and perhaps, put my cooking skills to test, I was trapped home with bad weather and no groceries.

Voila, Peppertap came to my rescue. The situation almost sounds too good to be true- ordering good quality veggies, in the middle of the day, wearing pyjamas at the click of a button!

Overwhelmed by the options? Check out the primer.

Imagine not coming back home laden with big grocery bags on mandatory visits to supermarkets on Sundays, or no hunting for the top-notch quality of bell peppers, and maybe, no waiting in line at the cash counter and hopefully, no need to visit a grocery store again!

1. Quick Delivery: Farmers’ level market level quality items at your doorstep in less than 2 hours. Peppertap’s key USP is accurate and on time delivery of items. No hidden costs, no delivery fee beyond 250 INR, and as far as my experience goes, no downside yet

2. Order online or via Mobile App: A very user friendly website with a finely detailed menu listing down items in proper sections which make shopping a delightful experience! Availing free shipping over orders above 250 INR makes you order more than you require, which is one common practice I am always guilty of!

3. Multiple Options: From baby foods to pet care, from special fasting food to kitchen utilities, Peppertap makes sure that it caters to each demand of every user! Impressive, convenient and very innovative!
