TODAY: Uber offers sweet treat, sprinkled with convenience

Posted By on Fri, Jul 18, 2014 at 12:39 PM

We’ve all had the mid-day dessert craving where going outside into Charlotte’s heat and traffic is too dreadful to consider. But for one day, you’re in luck. To sweeten their reputation, Uber is utilizing its rideshare service to offer their customers a cool dessert at the touch of a button — on your smartphone.

Partnering with local ice cream trucks, Uber is celebrating National Ice Cream Day (which is Sunday) a little early by delivering ice cream in 144 cities, with Charlotte being one.

Today from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the company known for its hidden costs is offering you five treats for $25. On the menu are a variety of ice cream choices from Sticks and Cones, Mr. Cones and more.

To kick off your weekend right with a stick treat:
1. Download the Uber app
2. Create an account or sign in if you have one already
3. Select “Ice Cream” option
4. Hit request
5. Order- Uber will charge it to your account
If a vehicle is available, they will send one out to you right away.

Demand is high, and availability is limited, so make sure to plan ahead. Take this one chance to embrace your laziness and enjoy a tasty dessert. It’s okay, we won’t judge.
