8. Get Hai Di Lao delivery – for free

On 30 Jan, UberEats will be offering Hot Pot On-Demand where users can request for a Hai Di Lao Hot Pot to be delivered to their homes. The hot pot feast feeds six pax, which is perfect for a family or friend gathering during the celebration.

Simply Open the UberEats app from 10am and tap on the Hot Pot billboard at the top of the app to request for it. Demand is high and sets are limited, so you may need some luck to be able to get a Hot Pot meal. Successful parties get to keep the hot pot and UberEats goodies as well.
