Uber has defined the on-demand landscape, changing the way travelers worldwide get around. First they saved you from those uber-high (no pun intended) taxi cab fares, and now the company is back with it’s newest service: food delivery!
In today’s guide, we’re going to walk you through how the app works, and then provide a money-saving UberEats promo code so you can get your first order on the cheap![toc]
What Is UberEATS?
UberEats brings the possibility of convenient, cheap, and fast delivery with lots of food options right to your smartphone.
All you need to do is open up the UberEATS app on your phone, hit the meal icon at the top, enter your location and punch the view menu button. Uber will then display what’s on the menu from local restaurants in your area.
From there, just pick what you want and check out. Once you place an order, the driver picks the food up at the restaurant you ordered from and heads to your location. You’ll either meet them curbside at their car or they’ll bring it into your location to complete your delivery.
Then, all that’s left is the best part: MEALTIME!
To give you a better understanding of what new users can expect when using the service, here’s a quick step-by-step video overview of how it works:
But before you download the app and start ordering, apply a coupon code to your account before checkout. Many people don’t know this, but new users can save a good chunk of money by simply doing this quick step!
UberEATS Promo Codes For New Users
For first time users to save money on their order, an UberEATS coupon must be applied to their account at the time of checkout.
There are two types of promotions for new customers: a monetary discount and a free delivery discount. But which one is best?
In most cases, we suggest taking the monetary discount, which will grant new customers a discount of $10 off their first order. However, if you’re placing a delivery that requires the driver to travel a long distance, we suggest using the free delivery option.
Let’s take a look at each.
1. Monetary Discount
Uber is currently giving away a $10 credit to new users who download the UberEATS app in search of free food. The credit won’t get you a free meal, but it’ll substantially cut down on the cost you pay for it.
These types of promotions are used to gain new riders, and they work like crazy. Uber gets new users, and both riders get credit for either signing up or referring somebody. It’s a win-win for all parties involved.
To claim the credit, either download the app from the Apple Store or Google Play, then enter the code “LEUPP25” or “EATFREE1” in the app. Alternatively, you can also visit ubereats.com and enter the code after logging into your user account. Check out the tutorial towards the bottom of the page for more application information.
2. Free Delivery
Free delivery on an UberEATS order is another option that users can look into when placing their first order. This type of promotion is usually pushed on social media, like this one from the official Uber Eats Facebook page.
These types of UberEATS promos are run in an attempt to quickly draw users into the platform. When you actually break down the economics behind free Uber delivery, it makes sense why users would choose this.
The cost of an UberEATS delivery depends on how far the delivery driver goes to deliver the food and how long it takes them to get there. Usually this is around $6-7 for the first mile, then an additional $2-4 every mile after that.
If you’re ordering from a restaurant that is super close, free delivery promotions don’t make sense. But if you’re ordering from a place that is even three miles away, then opting to apply the free delivery promotion suddenly starts to look more appealing.
To claim this promotion, you don’t need an UberEATS code. All you need to do is click this link and you’ll be taken to a landing page that prompts you do download the app.
How To Apply An UberEATS Coupon Code
You need to follow some easy steps to add a UberEATS promo code to your user account:
- Open the UberEats app and go to the menu.
- Select “PAYMENTS”.
- Select add “UberEats promo code”.
- Enter the code “ LEUPP25 “ and tap apply.
And now you have successfully added a promo code which also gives you $10 off your first order.
Some people might be using older versions of the app. In that case, follow these steps:
- Open the UberEats app and go to the menu.
- Select “PROMOTIONS”.
- Select “add UberEats promo code”.
- Enter the code “ LEUPP25“ and tap apply.
Activation happens after entering promo code. Promo codes for some reason also act in reverse orders of how you are adding them so the most recent one will be applied to your delivery.
Promo Codes For Existing UberEATS Users
People are always excited to use a new app since you get a promo code as soon as you sign up. But after you’re done with signing up, there are less chances of finding codes and that excitement starts dying.
While there are less ways for existing users to obtain UberEATS credits and free shipping, discounted orders still aren’t that hard to find if you know where to look. There’s a simple and easy feature already embedded in the app that unlocks these deals.
Existing UberEATS users can take advantage of their unique referral code within their account. Sharing this code with friends, similar to how we’ve provided ours above, will earn hungry users free credit good towards their favorite restaurants. How does it work? It’s simple.
How It Works
Once an existing UberEATS user refers a new user to the platform and an order is completed, both parties will see a credit applied to their account.
For years, both Uber and Lyft have rewarded existing users for referring their friends by offering extensive amounts of free ride credit in exchange for the referral. By tapping into their customer base and offering a simple reward, the cost for the company to acquire a new customer drops, and another potential long-term revenue stream is ushered in.
This program has worked so well that it’s often cited as the reason Uber and Lyft got so big, so quickly. And it makes sense. Why would users not refer their friends for free credit?
So we can tell the program clearly works. But how do you get in on the action?
Features Making Things Easier
UberEats includes all kinds of features for making ordering your delivery meals easier than ever. They feature a range of options from local restaurants, from sushi to burgers and even fresh, cold-pressed fruit and vegetable juice! Whether you’re in a McDonald or Chipotle mood, there’s always something just a button click away.
You can set a reminder for yourself for meals on a future menu, so you’ll never miss out on a great meal at a great price. You can easily order more than one meal if your part of a group, and the fare split feature lets everyone pay just for their own meal!
Uber has revolutionized the way we get from place to place, and now they’re revolutionizing the way we do food delivery. So use an UberEats promo code today and save big!
I think using an UberEATS promo code at checkout is hands down a no-brainer. Unless of course you don’t like saving money. But if that’s you, you wouldn’t be here right now. Take advantage of the program while it lasts!Note: There is a rating embedded within this post, please visit this post to rate it.
