It’s been 2 years, 9 months, and 28 days since we left you. Guess what? We’re coming back, and there’s nothing you can do to stop us (or maybe there is? We’ll find out).
Yes, that’s right. The Eat24 Facebook Page is back. And to celebrate, we’re hosting a 24-hour LIVE video event* on Tuesday January 24th and making it rain coupons to save $$$** on Eat24.
But really, the biggest reason is we miss all our Facebook friends.
Yes, maybe your algorithm sucked (or maybe our posts were stupid), but the truth is, our Page was always full of people talking to us. We had customers showing love, asking questions about their orders, asking us for coupons, and just stopping by to say hi. Thinking about all the people we lost contact with because we closed our Facebook page makes us sad.
So this time, Facebook, it’s not you, it’s us. And really, it’s not us, it’s our customers. We love them, and we’re doing this for them.
We’re not the only ones who have grown up. You’ve changed a lot too–especially now that you have this Facebook Live thing that is always showing up in our personal News Feeds and push notifications (sometimes from Pages we don’t even like, which is weird). This new feature got us thinking…
See, told you. #maturity
Since we love our customers, and you love to boost the ranking of Live videos in people’s News Feeds… we thought we should do a Facebook Live tribute to our customers! But not an annoying one, one that’s actually useful because it’s full of entertainment and coupons to save money on dinner.
So that’s what we’re doing. We’re coming back, Facebook, and we’re making it a 24-hour* live streaming event (because we can’t do anything in moderation). Tune in to the Eat24 Facebook page on Tuesday, January 24th (haha get it?) for an epic 24-hour real-time audio-visual extravaganza filled with kittens, noodles, explosions, and COUPONS. LOTS AND LOTS OF COUPONS (aka free food). Coupons for $5 off (free onion rings), coupons for $2 off (free guacamole), coupons for $0.24 off (free soy sauce packets)… who knows what else!
Just kidding. We wouldn’t give out $0.24 coupons. We aren’t jerks.
Yes Facebook, you can use the coupons too.
If we pull it off, this will be the longest Facebook Live stream ever completed*. And we’ll finally have a place to channel our restless energy and love for our customers into something record-breaking, if not fairly cathartic.
Will we pull it off? Will the internet be big enough for dank memes of this size? Can our coupon machine handle it? Will you shut us down because we were kind of a dick three years ago?
Grab some coffee and tune in at 9am PST (noon EST) on January 24th, 2017 to find out.
(We couldn’t pick a favorite “Eating popcorn” gif so here are five.)
Above all, this is a celebration of our customers. We’ve missed you on Facebook. So this video is for you.
*Technically Facebook only lets you go Live for 4 consecutive hours, so we’ll be doing six 4-hour chunks back to back to back (to back to back to back).
**And now here’s a poem our lawyers wrote: All coupons in our Facebook Live video expire on Wednesday, January 25th, 2017 at 11:59PM PST. You must have a Eat24 account to use our codes, which can each only be used once on orders with a subtotal of $10 or more when paying with Credit Card, Apple Pay, Android Pay, or PayPal. Coupons are valid only on Eat24.com or the Eat24 app.
