Discount your meal: The Coup Card returns
If you haven’t heard of it before, the card, available in Delhi, Mumbai and Goa, gives you discounts on food and alcohol at the hottest restaurants. Hurry, they run out very quickly.
Who isn’t complaining about high restaurant prices? Before hitting the latest restaurant it’s become almost necessary to check the prices on Zomato. Rs350 for a pint before tax? Let’s have a couple of rounds before. Well, that’s our money-saver logic for you. But you can’t skip Indigo Deli or Mamagoto altogether either, right? Every now and then, you can justify the two Rs800 cocktails and the Rs6,000 bill. Well, here’s a card that will make it a bit easier to make that justification.
What? The Coup Card, available in Mumbai, Goa and Delhi (sold out), gives you a 15% discount on your entire bill at several pricey restaurants. Depending on the location you’ve bought the card for, you’ll also receive a host of other discounts (scroll to the bottom to find out what discounts are available in your city/state).
How much? The week-long card, available only in Mumbai and Goa, costs just Rs500, the six-month card costs Rs2,100 in Mumbai, while the year-long card is Rs3,800. The Delhi card has been sold out and will be back only in November (there’s already a waitlist).
Is it worth it? If you go out a lot, sure. A 15% discount is not enough to make a place that’s out of your budget affordable, but if you’re going to go there anyway, it’s a no-brainer. You’d need to spend Rs25,333 to make the card worth it over a year. With the six-month card, you’d need to spend Rs14,000 to recover all your money. If you’re in Mumbai, also remember that your card is valid at Godrej Nature’s Basket. A couple of full-fledged shopping trips there would easily net you a discount of a couple of thousand.
Don’t think you’re saving any money while placing these orders, but here are just 10 items that would make the six-month card worth it in Mumbai:
|Le Pain Quotidien||1 Granola Parfait with Yoghurt||Rs1500|
|Mamagoto||1 Pork Spare Ribs||Rs1195|
|Ellipsis||1 Australian Ribeye Steak||Rs2500|
|The White Owl||1 Pitcher of Biddy||Rs2445|
|Neel||1 Kali Mirch aur Dhaniya Salmon Ki Tikka||Rs885|
|Le15 Patisserie||1kg of Summer Love||Rs1650|
|Indigo Deli||1 Cheese Fondue||Rs845|
|Busaba||1 Grilled Lobster||Rs840|
|Kofuku||1 Chilean Sea Bass in Spicy Black Bean Sauce||Rs1350|
|Godrej Nature’s Basket||200g Gruyere cheese||Rs800|
Must-know condition One important thing to remember, particularly if you’re thinking of getting the week-long card around your birthday, is that the discount is only applicable to a table of four. If you have 10 people at your table, 40% of the meal will receive a 15% discount.
