Sometimes, there’s nothing better than treating yourself to your favorite food without having to leave the house. Nowadays, smartphone apps galore are on hand to deliver your dinner, and while it’s all fun and games loading up your digital cart with mouth-watering meals, often the hidden costs and taxes tacked on at the checkout can be enough to make a hungry user lose their appetite. In particular, an experiment by The New York Times found that the combined cost of Uber Eats’ various surcharges was equivalent to a 91% markup on the restaurant cost of a meal, the highest of any of the leading food delivery apps.
