Quit whipping out calculators and spending way too much time figuring out who ordered what, who owes who what, whether to split the tip…eating out with a group can be tons of fun, but dealing with the checks can be a headache.
Enter one of our favorite new apps: Cover.
When you get to the restaurant, open the app and either create or join your virtual table. Once the restaurant knows you are paying with Cover, the table’s bill appears on the app. You can pay your portion whenever you want, making it super easy to split the bill and you get the added bonus of eliminating wait-time for the check.
The only current draw-back is that restaurants have to opt-in for Cover to work. However, the list of participating restaurants is growing quickly, and Cover is well-represented in metropolitan areas like New York, Los Angeles, and the Bay Area. Check out the full list of participating restaurants here.
Let us know your favorite way to spit and pay for the check – and whether Cover makes the cut!
