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.
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.
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.
