Uber Ice Cream is Here and You Could Win Free Ice Cream For a Month

In the old days, you had to wait for the ice cream truck to make its way to you, and then half the time you had to chase after it to get your hands on some. But if you live in Los Angeles, Washington D.C, Atlanta, New York, Miami, Dallas, San Francisco, Toronto, Boston, or Seattle (selfishly, I say YAY to Seattle!), Uber is going to deliver it directly to you. Like, to-day. Yes, Uber Ice Cream is here!

Here’s how to get your cone-fulls:

  1. Starting at 11am Friday, August 11, request “Ice Cream” through the Uber app.
  2. The luckiest of the lucky will get matched and ice cream for you and up to four friends will be headed your way. (If you’re not matched the first time, they say to keep trying!)
  3. Each ice cream delivery includes a collectible cone that you can take to participating McDonald’s locations for a free soft serve every Friday through September 22—ice cream BONUS!

This collectible cone will keep you in McDonald’s soft serve well into September. | Image by Instagram feed @tcurate.

And that’s it! So, wear your lucky shirt, don’t walk under any ladders, cross your fingers, and get to requesting. And also, can I be your fourth if you get matched? Seriously, call me—I’ll Uber right over.

(But if you don’t get matched, at least you could make some at home?? Check out these ice cream recipes.)
