 LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Here's a look at your top consumer headlines.

Uber expansion

Uber, a car-on-demand service, announced it will be expanding its business to 24 more cities worldwide, including a few regional cities. The company added services to Bloomington, West Lafayette and South Bend in Indiana. In Ohio, Akron and Dayton drivers can also expect to see Uber cars on the roads.
Uber revved up its services in Louisville earlier this year, along with Lyft, a similar service. The two companies stirred up a bit of controversy with city leaders and cabs services who wanted more oversight for the app-driven ride sharing companies. To see the full arguments from both sides of the issue, click here

Free tacos for life? 

That could very well be the case... if you're one of 11 lucky winners. Here's how it works: In its "11 everlasting dollars" contest, Taco Bell, the YUM! Brand chain, says it will release 11 altered dollar bills in 11 U.S. cities. Each winning bill has a specialized serial number. The winners of the contest will then receive thousands of dollars worth of free food. Fans can track where bills might be hiding on Taco Bell's website. 

So far, the site has revealed three tickets in Chicago, Los Angeles and Nashville. 

More flight options

Frontier Airlines announced five more non-stop flights will be added to Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.

Flights to Dallas-Fort Worth are set to begin on October 26, along with new services to Las Vegas, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and Phoenix. The new flights will join the ranks of five other non-stop flights from CVG: Cancun, Denver, New Jersey and Washington, D.C. Frontier launched its newest flights by offering limited, temporary fares for as low as $14.99 on the first day. 

This is not Frontier Airlines' first time in the Kentucky market; the company previously flew out of Louisville, but left the airport in early 2013.
