How do I not pay for Uber Eats?

You can choose not to pay for Uber Eats by using a promo code. In actuality, you will need to pay in entirety for your food order, including the delivery fee, the service fee and other fees that the platform finds appropriately acceptable. However, by using a promo code, you will only need to pay a certain percentage while Uber Eats takes care of the rest.

How to reduce your costs on Uber Eats?

Uber Eats can be quite expensive for anybody if used on a daily basis. This is mainly due to the multitude of other fees that customers need to pay on Uber Eats, such as the delivery fee, the small order fee, the busy fee, the service fee, among many others. There are always ways, through which customers can reduce their costs on Uber Eats, such as,

By getting an Uber One membership

If you are planning on using Uber Eats on a regular basis in the long run, you can easily save a lot of money by getting an Uber One membership. This membership can be purchased at a cost of $9.99 for a month or $99.99 for the whole year. Uber One can save a lot of money for the customer since they do not have to pay any delivery fee for a limitless number of orders.

By avoiding the busy fee

There is also a busy fee in Uber Eats. This is often applied when orders are being placed during peak hours and other busy days such as weekends. This is usually because the demand for food delivery is pretty high during these times. This fee can easily be avoided by placing the order at a much earlier point in time.

By avoiding the Small Order fee

Uber Eats charges its users a Small Order fee if the order subtotal is much below the minimum limit set by the platform. This is also an unnecessary fee and can be avoided by adding extra items to the cart. If there are leftovers, these can simply be packed and eaten later. The small order fee can also be avoided by having someone else place an order through the present one.

By avoiding the delivery adjustment fee

Uber Eats charges the customer a delivery adjustment fee if they are making any changes to the order once it has been accepted by the restaurant merchant. To avoid this, the customer will need to be more careful of when the order is being placed and check if all the required items, including sides and beverages are present.

By using promo codes and coupons

There are also many promo codes and coupons that can be used by the customer to save money on Uber Eats. The restaurants which are having certain offers are shown in the features section of Uber Eats or even on the homepage. Ordering from these can save a lot of money in the long run. Promo codes can be obtained by inviting others to Uber Eats or even from certain websites.

By setting the right filters

Uber Eats has a large collection of restaurants that include all price ranges. It can definitely be very difficult to find many inexpensive but tasty options from the plethora of restaurants here. To make the job easier for the customer, they can easily set the right filters on the app so that they are shown cheap but tasty options first.

By choosing pick up instead of delivery

Another way to save money on Uber Eats is by opting to pick up the food order rather than having it delivered home. This can definitely save the customer a lot of money that goes in to delivery fees. To find easier and closer pick-up options, the customer can simply use the map feature that is given in the app.

Advantageous features of Uber Eats

Uber Eat boasts a wide range of features that can be excitingly beneficial for the customer, such as,

  • Group ordering features with bill-splitting included
  • Pre-ordering feature where the order can be placed up to seven days in advance
  • Easy live tracking and push alerts to be updated about the status of the order. The live tracking uses the inbuilt map feature of Uber Eats which is pretty reliable
