Grubhub Takes Temperature of Its Customers’ Politics

In a simple, but brilliant maneuver, Grubhub (and Seamless) encouraged its audience to affix their political affiliation to their deliver order during the Presidential Debate.

Through emails and social media, Grubhub promoted the 5%-off coupon codes #IMWITHHER and #IMWITHHIM to encourage people to order delivery. Of course, the secondary aspect of such a campaign means they would have some data to send to journalists like this one.

Grubhub declined to give a specific number of deliveries, but a spokesperson said that the codes were used tens of thousands of times. What did Grubhub find out?

“IMWITHHER” was used in 82% of orders; “IMWITHHIM” was used by 18%. 

Given that Grubhub is more popular in urban areas and Clinton is as well, this is not a surprise.
