These New Yorkers spend hundreds of dollars on Uber each month

Ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft make it easy to overspend. After all, since your payment information is already linked to the app, you never even see the money leaving your wallet.

As one woman who spent $453 on Uber in a month puts it: "The half second it takes to press your thumb down on a smartphone screen leaves no time for regret." And, she adds, "impulse-driven, one-press smartphone purchases are the easiest to lose track of."
