Do you ever crave something that doesn’t offer delivery service? Or wish that someone would run all of your errands to save you some time? Well I have the perfect solution – FAVOR. It’s the delivery service that will do anything for you. Get food, pick up your dry cleaning, deliver a gift, you name it. I tried it out on two occasions and really liked it. The first time I was craving my favorite salad from Ascension Coffee. They do not offer delivery service and it was a day I needed to stay at my desk. I used the FAVOR app to place my order and have my lunch delivered to me. A couple of days later I really wanted Sprinkles Ice Cream while I sat outside by the pool. Again, Sprinkles Cupcakes does not deliver. But I used the FAVOR app to place my order. Then I communicated with my runner (via text message) to see what the flavors of the day were to get exactly what I wanted. In this case it was the carrot cake cupcake with vanilla ice cream. The possibilities are endless and I never left my house (office). This would be a great way to have cupcakes delivered to someone as a gift. Or anything for that matter.
The best part is that it saves you time while using a cashless system. The runner pays your bill and then you will pay when your delivery is complete. When you check out on the app, it will add a suggested tip and the $6 delivery fee to your bill. It’s that simple. The company is based out of Austin and rapidly growing. I found both of my runners to be very friendly and eager to do a great job. Think of it as Uber but for errands. Leave it to the tech guru’s to design an app that makes your life easier!
Readers of Film+Fashion+Fun can have FREE delivery on their first FAVOR order. Just download the app, place an order and use code TANYF9 when you check out. Give it a try and let me know what you think. By the way, they are hiring runners. Interested? Click here to inquire.

What is Favor?
Favor is your on demand, personalized delivery assistant. You order,
we deliver–it’s that simple!
How does Favor work?
Choose one of our featured items or enter the item(s) you would like
from any restaurant or store in our delivery area. Editing the details
of your favor is simple and placing your favor only takes three taps.
After you order your favor, it is assigned to one of our runners, who
will deliver your item(s).
Payment is secure and cashless. Once your item(s) are picked up by the
runner, you pay for them right though the app. All payment information
is saved securely so you only need to enter it once.
What can I have delivered with Favor?
Almost anything! We deliver food from your favorite restaurants, dry
cleaning, prescriptions, clothing, groceries, and more!
Favor in Dallas: Dallas: 9 AM to midnight Sunday through Wednesday and
9 AM to 2 AM Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

How quickly do you deliver?
The average delivery time is 35 minutes, but times can vary depending
on demand, traffic and restaurant wait times. We always keep you
posted on the status of your order, via push notifications and texts
from your runner.
What is the delivery fee for Favors?
Boston, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta & Denver: All orders will have a $6
fee plus 5% of the cost of the items and tip to the runner.
How do I pay?
The system is completely cashless. All payment is made through our app
and we accept all major credit and debit cards. When you order your
first favor, you’ll enter your payment information, which we store
securely. You only need to enter your payment info once.
I love the idea of having a runner being available to fetch you something you need while at home working and therefore I think that Favors will be a success and their fees are much better than taxi cabs or such delivering your items! Are Favors planning on expanding from Dallas area?
Love the idea of this service and am downloading the app as I type!
This makes me wish I: A, lived in a big city where this was located and B. had the money to waste.
this is so awesome sounds like a great app
I love the idea Favor is putting. It looks like it will be successful if it continues like this.
This sounds like a great idea! A little expensive, if you’re just getting a cupcake or coffee, but worthwhile if it’s for your dry cleaning or groceries!!
Oh my god this is so cool. I like this idea!! 🙂
Don’t know if this idea could work in a long run but at least it’s creative.
Thanks for this post
I would love someone to do all of my little errands for me! But, then again, those are the only things that get me out of the house!
I think that I would like this app very much.
wow I love this! what will they come up with next ? 🙂
Thanks for sharing about this!
Omg looove the 3rd dish! My favorite breakfast!
