Ride-share app Uber is facing legal troubles in Baltimore (and around the world). So in an attempt to win customers’ affection, they decided to go with a tried-and-true method: delivering ice cream to your front door/office/park bench/wherever you may be. This seems like a great idea at first — Uber brings you things that you want wherever you are, like cars, or ice cream! — but they turn out to have made one major mistake.
The ice cream is not free. In fact, it is very un-free. Via the Uber app, you can get “a variety” of 5 frozen ice cream treats… for $25. Even if you factor in a $5 delivery charge and a $5 tip, that’s still $3 per ice cream bar. So why not just run down to your local 7-11 and buy several boxes of ice cream bars? Beats me.
If you’re still tempted by the ice cream delivery offer, take advantage of it today between 11 AM and 5 PM by downloading the Uber app and selecting “ice cream.”
