A 6-year-old ordered $1,000 in meals from Grubhub on dad’s cellphone

CHESTERFIELD TOWNSHIP, Michigan — A Michigan man says he was left with a $1,000 invoice after his 6-year-old son ordered a digital smorgasbord of meals from a number of eating places final weekend, resulting in a string of surprising deliveries — and perhaps a starring position in an advert marketing campaign.

Keith Stonehouse stated the meals piled up rapidly at his Detroit-area residence Saturday night time after he let his son, Mason, use his cellphone to play a sport earlier than mattress. He stated the teen as a substitute used his father’s Grubhub account to order meals from one restaurant after one other.

The boy’s mom, Kristin Stonehouse, advised The Related Press on Thursday that Grubhub has reached out to the household and supplied them a $1,000 present card. The corporate is also contemplating utilizing the household in a web based promotional marketing campaign, she stated. Grubhub officers didn’t instantly reply to a message from the AP in search of remark.
