Ordering in? MealMe tells you which food delivery service is cheapest

Food delivery isn’t always cheap. Between the food itself, delivery fees, and any extra charges, costs can really add up. Sometimes, you can save a few dollars by going with one food delivery service over another — but comparing them can be a pain.

Thankfully, there’s a new app that can do that work for you. MealMe allows you to compare the prices of services like DoorDash, Uber Eats, GrubHub, and more for all your favorite local restaurants, meaning you can always pick the cheapest option.

The app could be particularly helpful over the next few weeks and months. Millions of people are stuck inside due to the coronavirus, with some people self-isolating and others following shelter-in-place orders. More cities are expected to implement these shelter-in-place orders, where citizens are expected to only leave their home for essentials like groceries and medical attention.

MealMe is relatively easy to use too. You’ll start by searching restaurants in your local area. You can filter by price, distance, type of food, and so on. You’ll then be told the cheapest delivery option for that restaurant. Then, simply tap the link and you’ll be taken to that cheapest service, where you can order your food. MealMe has a social component to it too, where you can like and comment on the food from restaurants in your area.

If there’s one thing that is a little frustrating about MealMe, it’s that it kicks you over to your web browser for most restaurant-related activities — including things like browsing menus. It makes sense to have to be moved to a different service to actually order the food, but many tend to make the decision on the restaurant they want to order food from based on the menu, so having to constantly navigate back and forth from the app to the browser can be a pain. That said, if you want to save some cash when you order food, it’s not a huge deal.

You can get MealMe for yourself straight from the App Store; however, it’s unfortunately not available on Android, so if you’re an Android user, you’re out of luck.

This is no doubt the best Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 pre-order deal
Samsung's unboxing of the Galaxy Z Fold 6.

If you want to be the very first to get one of the newest, greatest Samsung phones, you're probably pretty excited right now. That's because the Galaxy Z Fold 6 is coming out on the 24, which is just about two weeks away from the date this is being written. And that means it is pre-order season. When we explored Galaxy Z Flip 6 pre-order deals, we found a fairly robust landscape with a ton of best options for you depending on your carrier of choice. Unfortunately, though, the same does not apply for the more expensive Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6. When looking at Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 pre-order deals we kept finding that Samsung itself was (usually) your best choice. Tap the button below to see the Samsung page and start making your order or keep reading below to see why other retailers are struggling to keep up the pace.

Why you should pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 from Samsung
Pre-ordering the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 from Samsung nets you a number of benefits. The first, which is largely superficial but won't fit in with the numerical arguments to come, is the fact that Samsung has reserved some color variations for their own shop. This includes the white and the special "Crafted Black" with a special textured exterior. Note that Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 cases are already out, however, so you can always just get a textured case if you want that feel. Also note that Samsung online exclusive colors are having a delayed shipment and aren't expected to arrive at your home until by August 7th, a full two weeks after launch.

Two Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 smartphones next to each other.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 is days from being out. In fact, the only thing that is in the way of you getting one is making sure to pre-order. The phone, which will likely be included in our listing of the best flip phones as soon as we get more time with it (it's predecessor, the Galaxy Z Flip 5, is our current favorite) is officially launching on the July 24. What time we did get with the phone, expressed in our early Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 review, was very positive, with our review noting the good looks of the phone, including the absence of a noticeable crease. If you've had good experiences with Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip series and really want the sixth generation of the phone, pre-ordering is a great way to do so.
