You can order from local restaurants and merchants and have it delivered to your door in minutes!

Postmates is hosting a series of promotions, including $100 in free delivery credit for new Honolulu customers, a partnership with former Miss Hawai'i, Emma Wo, to highlight her favorite foodie spots (now available on Postmates), and a roving truck delivering Aoki’s shave ice so fast it “won’t melt.”

Postmates is also teaming up with Alaska Airlines and Virgin America for a #vacationdelivered offer to “postmate” six mainland visitors to Hawaii.

“We are excited to be launching in Honolulu as the first large-scale on-demand ‘anything’ company to land in Hawai'i,” said Bastian Lehmann, co-founder & CEO, Postmates. “Unlike other on-demand services, Postmates sees the cities we operate in as our warehouses. We bring the best of your city to your door, by making every merchant and restaurant accessible through the Postmates app. We’re thrilled to help deliver the best of paradise in minutes -- to Honolulu residents and visitors alike.”

Postmates says it supports local businesses and has helped them compete against retail giants.  Typically, local merchants see a revenue growth of four times after joining the Postmates platform as it allows them to expand their reach to new customers.

New customers in Honolulu can enjoy $100 in free delivery credit through December 14, 2017. Postmates average delivery time is 35 minutes or less, and delivery fees are $3.99. Postmates also offers a subscription service, Postmates Unlimited, which is free delivery from all merchants, when you spend $20 or more, for $9.99 per month. Postmates initial service will include all of Honolulu (including Manoa and the Univ. of Hawai'i campus), Kaneohe and Kailua.

Postmates teamed up with former Miss Hawai'i, Emma Wo, to highlight her favorite foodie spots, now available on Postmates.

Postmates is also delivering free Aoki's Shave Ice -- so fast, it won’t melt -- around Honolulu from November 20-24 by food truck. The Postmates Shave Ice Truck will stop by the Main Public Library, the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, and Kaka'ako, then will wrap up the week at the “Eat the Street” food truck festival. Open up the Postmates app to see where the truck is.

Postmates is teaming up with Alaska Airlines and Virgin America to “postmate” six lucky winners from the mainland to Hawai'i. Winners will receive direct round-trip flights to Honolulu, three nights in a hotel and $500 in Postmates credits. California residents can order food delivery from any merchant in the Hawaiian or Poke collection on our app to enter. More on the #VacationDelivered offer and official rules here.
