I LOVE when I come across new opportunities to make money on the side, especially when the opportunities are good for moms.  Uber Eats is just that.  It’s Uber, but without all the downsides.

Let me explain…

First, for anyone living under a rock, Uber (not to be confused with Uber Eats) is the new-age taxi service that lets people like YOU get rides from…people like YOU.  If you want to become a driver, you apply, get a background check, submit info on your car, and voila! You’ve got an awesome side gig.  

Being an Uber Eats driver is just like that, only with way more perks and a more refined end goal: you’re just delivering people’s food.



Driving for Uber Eats is a great side gig with tons of flexibility! Click through to find out if it's a good fit for you.


Why Uber Eats is the Perfect Side Job

Uber’s a great side gig, but Uber Eats is even better.  There are way more perks and way more flexibility.  Here’s what’s so cool about this particular side job:


No One’s in Your Car

Just you, the breeze blowing through your hair, and someone else’s food. No strangers, ever.


You Can Drive Your Trusty Ole’ Wagon

If you want to succeed as a classic Uber driver, you need a nice car.  Not so with Uber Eats.  No one cares what you drive!  As long as their food gets to them, that’s all that matters.


You Set Your Own Hours

This is one of the greatest perks of Uber, and it’s true with Uber Eats too.  You decide when you work, no questions asked.


You Can Use a Bike or Scooter

This only works in certain cities, but Uber Eats is more than happy to let you deliver food with a bike or scooter!  This means that this side job could actually rank as a job that also provides exercise!


You Can Bring Your Kids to Work

Yep, your kids can tag along for the ride.  Now, be wise here – don’t leave them in the car!  But if you’ve got a great little helper on your hands, this is for you!


You Can Team Up with Your Bestie

Back in the days when I wasn’t bogged down with babies and toddlers, my husband and I used to drive around just for fun.  Where was this side job then??  We would have LOVED to do this together.  

So grab your significant other, bestie, or spouse, and keep each other company while you make some money!


The Approval Process is Easy

You pretty much know before you start whether you’ll be approved or not – standard application, background check, etc.  This isn’t the kind of thing where only 2 spots are open in an area.  The more the merrier!

  1. Thanks so much for sharing this! I just found your blog and love it! One note though – I was so excited about how perfect this was for me (I very much need something where I can work from home or bring my son to work with me), but it turns out at least in my city, your vehicle has to be a 2002 or newer (and mine is a 2001). I don’t know if that’s the case for all the cities or not, but at least where I live even to do Uber Eats I had to have a 2002 or newer model that is at least 4 doors. So, back to the drawing board.

    • OH NO!! I had no idea. I even asked them about that and they said you could totally drive your old beat up car! What a bummer. Were you able to find anything else that is promising? There are a lot of other posts on my site that list different working opportunities for stay-at-home moms. Let me know if you need help finding them! They may be helpful. I also have a couple posts that are scheduled over the next couple of weeks with some more cool money-making opportunities, so check back!
