Need a Favor? Just Ask!

Ever had one of those moments where you wanted to eat out, but couldn’t face the prospect of getting back in the car after fighting traffic on your commute home? Did you think it would sure be nice if someone would go pick up the food you wanted and deliver it right to your door, while you surfed Facebook in your pajamas? And wouldn’t it be great if they could pick up your dry cleaning or grab a prescription from the pharmacy on the way? Well, now there is an app for that!

Favor delivery service allows you to get just about anything you want delivered right to your door in under an hour. After you download the app and save your info, just enter the items you would like from any restaurant or store in the San Antonio delivery zone, and Favor will send one of their “runners” to complete the pickup and delivery. Payment is secure and cashless and takes place right in the app.

The average delivery time is 35 minutes, but can vary depending on demand, traffic, and restaurant wait times—Favor keeps you posted on the status of your order via push notifications and texts from your runner.

So what will all this convenience cost you? Favor charges a $6 delivery fee in San Antonio and a 5% – 9% processing fee based on the cost of the items you’ve ordered. Tipping runners is highly encouraged, and the runners keep 100% of anything you decide to give.

If you are heading to ACL this weekend or next, Favor also operates in Austin and will bring almost anything you might need to your hotel or Airbnb place. They’ll even deliver Fest merchandise.

But be sure to BYOB—Favor doesn’t deliver alcohol in any of its cities.  For more information, check out Favor’s website.
