Uber's free ice cream and ride promo

By Staff Writer
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice-cream is how the ditty goes, and if you’re craving some this winter’s day Uber can deliver some to your doorstep. Although tech company Uber is courting much controversy now it appears to have the time to think of its clients and is rewarding them, particularly the new ones, with some enticing promotions and deals.  

Firstly, there’s the ice-cream deal. If you want to feel like a kid again order Pauls Homemade Ice Cream on demand with #UberIceCream. You can get  four tubs at R80.

“This Friday, July 24, 2015 we’re bringing a frozen favourite back for the fourth year in a row. This is a global promotion with local flavour, and it’s as simple as ever: Tap a button, and get a brain freeze in hundreds of cities around the world,” said Uber.

In order to check how much the delivery trip will cost, simply click the “fare estimate” button at the bottom of the screen, when the Uber app is open, and it will calculate for you. You can order your ice-cream between 11am and 5pm today.

All new Uber users who sign up using the code “ICECREAMSA2015” will get their ice-cream delivery for free.
Uber highlighted that hours and pricing may vary in each city. Get you order in quick as the demand will be high and availability will be limited.


Uber has also partnered with the Nelson Mandela Foundation to do their bit for Mandela month throughout July, by raising funds for the Caring4Girls programme and lending its support to the Trek4Mandela initiative.

Uber has created a new user promotional code for first time users which gives them a first free ride up to R150. For every user that redeems this code, Uber will donate R50 to the Caring4Girls initiative. 

Uber explained that thousands of South African girls, particularly in rural areas, do not have access to sanitary towels causing many of them to miss school during their menstrual periods.

“The Caring4Girls programme was established by chief executive officer of the Imbumba Foundation, Richard Mabaso. Today the programme seeks to provide puberty and menstrual hygiene training to underprivileged girls, supporting them with sanitary towels for a minimum period of one year and giving each girl a menstrual hygiene booklet,” said Uber.

To make use of this promotion, simply download the free application for Android, iPhone, Blackberry 7, Windows Phone, or register here. The deal can only be used for Uber X and Uber XL excluded.
