Over the last 3 years, ridesharing app Uber has been providing Filipinos what taxis could never do and that’s to deliver quality, reliable service. Another thing Uber can deliver that a regular cabbie simply couldn’t is ice cream.
Yes, ice cream.
This July 15, they’re celebrating national ice cream day in over 400 cities in 69 countries around the world and we’re part of it. Uber Ice Cream will let anyone in Metro Manila book an Uber on Friday and enjoy an ice-cold dessert with their friends or family. More specifically, they partnered with Unilever to supply a load of Magnum Infinity ice cream bars throughout the 2 cities.
“Uber, aside from helping in decongesting Metro Manila’s streets, aims to help people indulge together through our common passion for ice cream,” stated Laurence Cua, Uber Philippines General Manager. “This year, we are bringing this big Uber ice cream social to over 400 cities worldwide and over a million people will enjoy their favorite ice cream together.”
If you want to get your hands on these sweet treats, open your Uber app on Friday (July 15, 2016) between 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM, set your location, and select Ice Cream. Once booked, an Uber will drive to your location and deliver four (4) bars of Magnum ice cream to your exact location.
Uber Ice Cream will be available in the following areas in Metro Manila:
Legaspi and Salcedo Villages, Makati
Greenhills, San Juan
Ortigas Center, Pasig
The Fort BGC, Taguig
Eastwood, Quezon City
Katipunan, Quezon City
Taft Ave., Manila
Cubao, Quezon City
This, however, isn’t a free service and it doesn’t come with an UberX or Black Car that you can ride. But the ice cream bars are available for a discounted rate of P199. Plus, Uber promises that each frozen treat delivery comes with a ‘surprise’.
