How to Get Free Delivery With Uber Eats Every Friday in August

Chris Zuppa/The Penny Hoarder.


I was amazed by the amount of options I had to choose from the first time I opened the Uber Eats app.

After so many years of being limited to pizza and Chinese, there was something glorious about being able to order food delivery from just about any restaurant I could imagine. Ice cream and cupcakes for delivery? Yes, please!

But, of course, this wasn’t good news for the diet I was planning to start every Monday, and it was even worse news for my budget. Ordering out can be expensive enough, and that $7 sub can quickly turn into a $15 sub after adding on the booking fee and tip.

This month, however, we can all feel a little less guilty about ordering out, thanks to this Uber Eats promo.

How to Get Free Delivery With Uber Eats Promo

Uber Eats is celebrating “Summer Fridays” by offering free delivery every Friday in August. All you have to do is create an account through the Uber Eats website, or download the app for Android or iPhone, then keep an eye on your email for the free delivery promo code. A new code will be sent to your email every Friday and will be valid on orders placed from 2 to 5 p.m.

And if you already have an Uber Eats account, then you should already be receiving the offer — so be sure to check your inbox!

Uber Eats has also announced it’s restructuring its booking fees. Rather than offering a flat fee — which was originally around $4.99, depending on the city — Uber Eats will now charge booking fees according to distance.

This means if you order from your favorite restaurant right around the corner, you can expect to pay less than the usual $4.99 fee. But if you order from a restaurant across town, you can expect to pay a bit more.

This is good news if you’re the indecisive type like me. With so many options to choose from, deciding what to order from Uber Eats can become an hourlong task. But now, you can sort through participating restaurants according to the booking fee to make the decision easier.
