Transportation startup Uber has been having a rough couple of months. A judge in California ruled that one of the company's drivers should be classified as an employee instead of an independent contractor, cab drivers in Paris rioted to compel the French government to ban its UberPop service and the city council in New York City is considering a proposal to limit the number of cars Uber will be allowed to add over the next year.
Despite these challenges, the company is keeping things cool. For the fourth year in a row, Uber will deliver ice cream around the world. Houston is one of 253 cities in 59 countries that are participating in the promotion.
Want to be an office hero? Here's how it works.
- From 11 am to 5 pm on Friday (July 24), you’ll be able to request an ice cream delivery to your location via the “Ice Cream” option in the Uber app.
- If your request is accepted, Uber promises ice cream "will be delivered curbside in minutes."
- Purchasers receive five items from popular Rice Village ice cream shop Cloud 10 Creamery. The cost is $25.
Capital One card holders can get the ice cream for free using the promo code SWEETDEAL.
For one day, why not put the controversy aside and enjoy some frosty deliciousness? The only thing that would make the deal even better is if only Cloud 10's world-beating banana split were an option.
