DRIVE SAFELY OUT THERE.>>THANK YOU, ERIC. IN THIS MORNING’S CONSUMER HEADLINES, BUSINESSES ARE USING UBER TO HELP GIVE YOU FREE RIDES.>>AND MASTER CARD HAS A NEW TOOL TO SPEED UP YOUR PURCHASES. AMY DAVIS IS HERE WITH OUR CONSUMER NEWS THIS MORNING.>>SO MASTER CARD, INSTEAD OF PULLING OUT THAT MASTER CARD EVERY TIME YOU WANT TO BUY SOMETHING, MASTER CARD IS ADDING A NEW PAYMENT OPTION THAT WILL MAKE PURCHASES AS SIMPLE AS A FEW CLICKS. IT INVOLVES FACEBOOK MESSENGER. USERS WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE ORDERS ON THE MESSAGING SERVICE AND PAY WITH WHAT THEY’RE CALLING A MASTER PATH. IT CONTAINS THEIR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION AND ONLY WORKS WITH A FEW MERCHANTS LIKE SUBWAY, BUT CUSTOMERS WILL BE ABLE TO PICK UP THEIR ORDER OR HAVE THEM DELIVERED. PET’S MART IS BUYING CHEWY.COM, A FAST GROWING ON-LINE PET SUPPLY RETAILER BASED IN FLORIDA. PETS MART WON’T LIKELY CHANGE THE NAME OF THE SITE AND IT WILL LET THE COMPANY CONTINUE TO OPERATE AS AN INDEPENDENT SUBSIDIARY.>>>BUSINESSES CAN NOW TAKE SOME OF THE HASSLE OUT OF TRAVELING FOR THEIR CLIENTS, THANKS TO UBER. THIS IS CALLED UBER CENTRAL AND IT ALLOWS CAN COMPANIES TO ORDER MULTIPLE RIDES AND COVER THE COST FOR ITS CUSTOMERS. FOR EXAMPLE, A BUSINESS CAN HAIL AN UBER TO DRIVE A CUSTOMER FROM THE HOTEL TO THE AIRPORT OR A COMPANY CAN ORDER MULTIPLE RIDES TO PICK UP CLIENTS AND BRING THEM TO A MEETING. IF THE CLIENT DOESN’T HAVE THE UBER APP, NO PROBLEM, THEY’LL JUST GET A TEXT MESSAGE WITH THEIR DRIVER’S VEHICLE INFORMATION. LAST YEAR, I HEARD SOME TALK OF CAR DEALERSHIPS, THE SERVICE DEPARTMENTS, USING THIS TO TAKE YOU BACK TO WORK, LIKE WITHOUT THE SHUTTLE RANGE SO, THERE’S SOME GOOD POSSIBILITIES THERE TO HELP OUT CONSUMERS.
