{Sponsored Post & Giveaway} Order Up!

orderupHave you heard of Order Up yet?!  If not, you need to check it out TODAY!  Order Up is an online and mobile food ordering and delivery marketplace, with “feet on the street” in 37 towns currently.  And, as of October 15th of this year, Iowa City is one of those towns!

Imagine:  You’re drowning in piles of laundry and dishes, still in your yoga pants from yesterday, with two napping toddlers.  Oh, how you would love some { insert a delicious downtown IC establishment here } right about now…

Through restaurant partnerships (Which Which, Hamburg Inn, and Bluebird Diner, to name a few…) and a fleet of drivers,  Iowa City residents are now able to order from all of the city’s best restaurants and have it delivered to their doors!   ICMB Contributor Sherri tried out the service with her family, and she was instantly a fan.  As a working mom who commutes to the Quad Cities, Sherri is definitely someone who deserves a little help with dinner once in a while!  She and her family ordered Sam’s pizza to their doorstep, and she said the entire process was seamless:

“What a slick service! Entered my zip code, picked a restaurant, selected my dinner (with a box to type special requests!), checked out and got a confirmation email seconds later.”

In addition to the delivery service, Order Up also offers take-out orders, which makes it so easy to find all of your favorite restaurants in one place online! Just go to their website (or download their mobile app), enter your address, and get ordering that yummy lunch or dinner that you’ve been wanting!

**IMPORTANT NOTE** In case you missed this on our Facebook page last month, Order Up is offering a special discount just for YOU mamas!  Use the code IOWAMOMS5 on your first order from Order Up, and you will receive $5 off your total!

And that’s not it!  We also have two $25 gift certificates to Order Up for two of you lucky ladies!  To enter to win these gift certificates, comment here on this post and tell us why you would love the chance to try out this awesome service! {Please note: for delivery service, you must live within a 3-mile radius of the downtown district.  If not, you can always use it for take-out orders!}  The winners of this giveaway will be announced TOMORROW at NOON on our Facebook page, so stay tuned! And good luck!  Be sure to tell all of your friends to enter, too!

  1. What a great service, especially with the early snap of cold weather we’ve had this year! Having a delicious meal delivered from Graze or Formosa on a cold winter night would be perfect!

  2. Looking forward to more restaurants willing to join OrderUp, but there are great choices already. What a neat idea! I will be using those $5 gor sure ^.^

  3. Oh goodness, not having to cook and getting a little variety would be great! Plus, not going out into this crazy cold would be awesome!!
