Update 12/18/18: In addition to saving money on your food, you can get $5 back when you signup for Acorns – AND you’ll get a free $5 bonus in your account when you use this link – double win!
Sharing this easy, easy win.
If you’re in a city where UberEATS participates (and there are many – full list below), you can get $20 off your first order when you use an existing user’s promo code after you download the app for iOS or Android.
It only takes a few minutes and you can seriously get a free meal out of it. I’ll show you how easy it is. Rarely are wins this effortless.

Uber partners with restaurants in major cities all around the US and Canada (and London and Singapore):
An Uber driver will deliver the restaurant’s food to you after you order via the app. To make it interesting, they rotate the selection every so often, so there’s always something new to try.
You can only order through the UberEATS app (not on the website) – so you need a smartphone to access the service (and live in a participating city).
Now for the fun part. You can get $20 off your first order with no minimum – and you can use it toward the $3.99 delivery fee.
After downloading the app, click the “Promotions” tab and enter an existing user’s promo code. Mine is “eats-rfufr” if you want to use it. This will give you $20 to use toward your first order. You should see a confirmation message pop up.
(Full disclosure: I get $20 when you make your first order, if you use my code.)
Now you’re ready to start browsing the food options.
Select whatever you want. Remember, you have $20 to spend.
I added a burger and fries to my cart. Mmmm, burger and friiiies.
You can use the $20 toward the food price, tax, and $3.99 delivery fee. So in my case, the $14 burger and fries ends up being completely free.
Once you find something you wanna gobble, hit “Place Order” and get ready to chow down.
You can share your own promo code with others, too. Then they can get free food and so can you.
This should make for some nice lunch breaks this week.
I do not know if this promotion is in limited quantities, or if it has an expiration date.
So if you’re interested, I’d go ahead and download the UberEATS app and apply a promotion code sooner rather than later. As a reminder, my code is “eats-rfufr” – that’ll give you $20 to spend on food if you wanna use it. And you can apply it toward taxes and the delivery fee, too.
I’m also not sure how an actual purchase from UberEATS will code (as travel or as a restaurant, but I’m assuming travel). Best bet is to use a card that has both as a bonus category (Chase Sapphire Preferred or Citi ThankYou Premier).
Share with your inner circle to keep the free food coming in.
Remember to tip though!
