Topic Wiki

This thread is to discuss whether people feel that something is unethical, not to find out what the law*/T&C says.

Any Halachic questions should be posted here.

*According to CountValentine this includes religion, but unfortunately for him, the general consensus is that religion will always be entwined in this thread.

*Hint* It's most likely not ethical.

Idk, I assume that it is. But my question is whether or not I can use the coupon since I added it to my account before they changed their terms, and there is no way now of giving it to an intended recipient under the new rules.
I would not use it.

I signed up for the Uber Eats promo before they modified their terms to limit the intended recipients to medical professionals and first responders. To my knowledge, there is no method of releasing the coupon for it to be used by the intended recipient (and before anyone suggests, I’m not interested in ordering food for someone who fits the category— too burdensome).

Is it ethical for me (not a medical professional or first responder) to use the code as it was added to my account When the terms and conditions did not make any mention of Medical professionals and first responders?

Uber eats removed the promo's

In a similar vane - I use Honey when checking out to see if I can find coupon codes. It simply goes through codes and picks one that sticks. Many times the code is generic, but other times, it's possible to infer that the code is specific to an affinity group. Assuming that there is no need to verify that I belong to that group, and coupled with the fact that I don't know the terms of the coupon (for example, if the coupon code is NURSESWEEK20 - I have no way of knowing if the code was only intended for Nurses, or if they were giving a promo to everyone in order to honor nurses)
