I think with my stomach.

In fact, most of the things I do revolve around food.

Unfortunately, I can’t always revolve around to pick up that food.

Sometimes, I have places I need to be, and I don’t have time to run out and get lunch.

That’s where our newest WCPO Insider reward comes in.

We have partnered with food delivery service OrderUp to offer a great new reward.

WCPO Insiders can get $9 off their first order from OrderUp.

I decided to try out the process to see what it was like — plus I didn’t bring a lunch from home.

I started by heading to OrderUp.com (there’s also an app). I created an account and put in the address where I wanted the food delivered to, here at WCPO.

Then I saw a list of possible restaurants to choose from.

To be honest, I didn’t  look too much at the list.

I was hungry, and I’ve been craving Gomez Salsa for weeks. So as soon as I saw that Gomez was a possibility, I immediately started ordering from there.

But there are a host of options near WCPO. Here are just a few:

There are probably plenty of options near you.

I used the site to plan out what I wanted on my “Turtle.”

Aside: If you haven’t had a turtle from Gomez, you need to get one. Like soon. I just finished eating mine, and I’m already dreaming about the next one. It’s a cross between a burrito and a quesadilla — all sealed with cheese.

Yum.

I put in my Insider Reward coupon code, added a tip for my driver and placed my order.

It came to $6.58 including a tip for my driver, Matthew, for this gloriously delicious, cheesy, gooey goodness.

 

A yummy "Turtle" from Gomez Salsa.

 

I ordered at 11:45 a.m.

I immediately received an email confirmation. Then I received a text about 15 minutes later saying that my driver, Matthew, had picked up my food at Gomez. About 15 minutes after that I received a text saying that Matthew was outside.

About 35 minutes after I placed my order, I was biting into an incredibly tasty, still warm lunch.

And I didn’t have to leave the office.

I’ll definitely use OrderUp again.

And the $9 savings, nearly paid for half of my first year of WCPO Insider.

I like it when I can fill my stomach while not draining my wallet.

Enjoy!
