With prices of goods on the rise and access to fresh and healthy foods crucial for households, our team has been hard at work building new tools to help you save time and money. Whether you’re needing to quickly find groceries within a budget or are looking for a bottle of bubbly under $20, we’re here to take the stress out of shopping for you.
Today, we’re excited to share updates you’ll see in the Uber Eats app later this year or in 2024 that will help you Get (almost) Anything, faster and easier than ever before, without breaking the bank.
We know that online food delivery can have a meaningful impact in reducing barriers to fresh groceries, especially for the most vulnerable–including people living in food deserts, seniors, and those facing disabilities or transportation barriers. Helping to improve access to quality food is incredibly important to our work at Uber and we’re proud to use Uber’s technology and extensive local delivery networks to offer SNAP recipients the ability to use their benefits to access fresh groceries conveniently from our app in 2024.
Healthcare Benefit Payments
We are working with Managed Medicaid and Medicare Advantage plans to support benefits that help members stay healthy, like accepting FSA Cards, Flex Cards, and relevant waiver payments on Uber. Select payment methods will be ready in 2024. This is yet another way we are simplifying how people can access healthy foods and connect with their local grocers in new ways.
Discover and order anything with ease with the launch of a new AI-powered conversational shopping experience. Later this year, consumers can chat with the AI assistant to explore new dishes and cuisines, find deals on popular restaurants, and easily reorder favorite meals to help save money and time. Soon, AI assistant will also make it easy for consumers to meal plan, find sales on grocery items, and quickly order ingredients for their favorite recipes while sticking to a budget.
Finding the best deals from your favorite brands shouldn’t be a hassle. With Uber Eats Sales Aisle, you’ll be able to quickly access a curated selection of the best ways to save near you. The Sales Aisle combines promos and deals into one easy to find space, saving you the hassle of long searches through the app.
