How Much the Average New Jersey Household Spends on Food Delivery Apps
Are you aware of how much of your income gets spent on delivery apps like DoorDash and Uber Eats? For New Jersey families, a lot would be a good guess.
The folks at Upgraded Points had this question in mind when they conducted a nationwide survey asking Americans about their use of delivery apps, how much money they spend monthly and annually on these services, and which states are spending the most on this convenience.
They found that specifically in New Jersey, the average person who lives in the state spends over two grand.
New Jerseyans shell out two thousand four hundred twenty-seven dollars each and every year on food delivery.
That equates to 5.04% of the median income in the state of New Jersey. 82.0% of residents in the Garden State claim they use delivery services on a regular basis. That amount seems a little high when compared to the national average of 78.8%.
When it comes to tipping, the most common percentage we give in New Jersey is 20%.
Here are some more Jersey numbers according to the study. We order from food delivery apps just over five times a month. The average cost of each order is just under forty dollars. Monthly, that adds up to over two hundred bucks a month, and close to two thousand five hundred bucks a year. New Jersey is “among the top states that spend the most on delivery annually.”
The median income in our state is a little over forty-eight thousand dollars, and a bit more than 5% of that is spent on food delivery apps alone. That seems so ridiculous if you think about it. Add in pick-up orders, and going out to eat and that’s a big chunk of cash. Honestly, I’ve used Uber once. We do order delivery rather often, but we usually get it straight from the restaurant.
