PHOENIX — UberEATS, a spinoff of the popular ride-sharing service, is now delivering quality meals to parts of the Phoenix area.

The app joins others like it, including Postmates, Doordash and Grubhub, that work as a middleman to deliver food from local restaurants to customers in the area through a smartphone app.

Unlike Postmates, UberEATS will deliver for a flat rate of $3.99 to anywhere in its coverage area of Scottsdale, Phoenix and north Tempe.

Many of the same award-winning Valley restaurants available on Postmates and Doordash are available from UberEATS.

A company representative told the Phoenix Business Journal that it worked hard to find the most highly acclaimed restaurants to partner with.

To get the service on your phone you will have to download a new UberEATS app, separate from Uber.

You can also order off from the service’s website from your computer.

You will need to create an account to use the service if you don’t have an account with Uber, but if you do, your username and password will work for UberEats.

To get 50 percent off your order, use PHXEATS as a discount code.

We want to hear from you.
