I’m new to Uber eats I’ve been doing deliveries for about 5 days now around central PA (harrisburg,hershey etc).
I haven’t had a single promotion come up. Sometimes in the menu it will say it has new info but it’s always empty when I open it. This seems odd to me as I’ve talked to many others who do have promotions.
Also when I get the card in the mail should I activate it? From what I can find online most people think it causes more issues but most of the info I found was a year or more older. Did they fix the issues from that time?
One last thing. I often drive between large strips of restaurants to try and get orders to pop (when I finish one I just go to the nearest cluster). However these past two days I’ve noticed large gaps in time between orders. Would there be a reason for this? I have cancelled a few orders they were for legitimate reasons, 2 of them were because the store was closed and 1 because of a very long wait time. Also 1 I did take by accident and cancel right away.
I have turned down a lot of orders. Main reason being they either take me to the outskirts of the county where there is nothing to pick up close by after delivery (talking like 10-15 minute drives). Also there are a lot of multi order fast food offers for like 5 6 7 dollars that I am not interested in because the food is never ready.
I have been using DoorDash as well and honestly I like it a lot more. It’s very smooth and keeps me moving. However I see a lot of potential in driving for uber eats in my area.
Any general advice/tips are appreciated.
