UBER Enters Into Partnership With Discount Grocer Save A Lot

In a customer-friendly move, Uber Technologies UBER inked a deal with St. Louis-based Save A Lot, one of the largest discount grocers in the United States. Following the partnership, some selected Save A Lot grocery stores will be available through the Uber Eats app. Uber Eats is the online food ordering and delivery platform of UBER.

With UBER and Save A Lot joining forces, more than 150 of Save A Lot’s 600-plus independently owned grocery locations are offering Uber Eats as a delivery method. Another benefit is that Save A Lot shoppers can use their Health Benefit cards to buy multiple items via Uber Eats. Health Benefit cards boost the convenience of eligible individuals for purchasing groceries and over the counter drugs by utilizing their healthcare benefits.

Beryl Sanders, Uber’s director of U.S. Grocery & Retail partnerships said, "Many consumers are price-conscious, and we're excited to continue to partner with brands like Save A Lot to increase value for Uber Eats consumers." To promote Save A Lot's debut on Uber Eats, customers are being offered discounts subject to certain terms and conditions.

Uber’s grocery delivery business has exhibited steady growth since its launch in July 2020 and includes Albertsons Companies, Meijer, Kroger, SpartanNash and Hy-Vee to name a few.
