Uber Eats is a service offered by Uber that allows people to order food and have it delivered to their exact location. Uber offers select restaurants to choose from and gives the menu to look over before you order. The app finds your location and gives local restaurants to choose from. For example Harry Buffalo, most pizza joints, or if you’re feeling breakfast or desserts, Uber Eats provides you with all your needs. This app gives you the price of the food and includes the tip to the driver. The price ranges from $6-$15, depending on what and how much you get. This app also gives the car the person is driving, along with their location and how long it will take. Uber Eats charges an up charge of $5 for services and tip. Everything is paid for on the app when you purchase your meal. (http://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/index.ssf/2016/09/ubereats_food_delivery_service.html)

This beats running around to many different stores trying to find the best deals and spending a lot of time. The price is pretty reasonable based on the fact that you can get all your goods at one time. If you want to spend as little money as possible, this isn’t the way to go, but if you want to spend as little as time on shopping this is gold.
