PSA: If You Ever Go Out To Dinner With A Group Of People You Need The Plates App
Split the bill with ease and save your friendships at the same time.
Going out to dinner with friends is great! You get to catch up, eat some great food, and probably laugh a lot. But then the bill comes and suddenly the table looks like this:
You all look around wondering how you're going to split it all up so you don't end up paying for food and drinks you didn't have, all while thinking there has to be a better way!
Well, there is. A few years ago, I was in the same situation, until one of my friends said, "I know how to do this." and she introduced us to an app called Plates.
Everyone else at the table was mesmerized. Using the app, she was able to break up what people ate/drank (including split items) and tell each of us exactly how much we owed, including tip. It was life-changing.
Since then, I've used it many times, and every time I'm with a new group people, they're shocked. So, I've decided that everyone should have it on their phone.
