Uber Is Delivering Christmas Trees for $135By: Josh Wolford - December 4, 2013
On-demand car service Uber is running one of its unique promotions tomorrow, Thursday December 4th. If you have an extra $135 and the strong desire to avoid the Christmas tree lot this year, Uber will deliver a fresh fir to your door – if you live in one of ten cities.
If you live in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, NYC, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, or Washington DC, you can request a Christmas tree delivery between the hours of 11am and 8pm via your Uber app.
“Instead of spending your weekend wrestling with a tree from the not-so-near farm or slushy street corner, kick back, pour yourself an extra glass of eggnog and watch your app as Uber takes care of the heavy lifting. With the help of The Home Depot and a bit of holiday magic, Uber will deliver a live tree to your doorstep with the touch of a button,” says a post on the Uber blog.
In 8 of the cities, you’ll receive a Fraser fir, a stand, and a surprise “Uber gift.” In the two California cities, your tree will be a Noble fir. Each tree will come netted and will stand between 7 and 8 feet, and there’s no cash necessary – you’ll be charged via your Uber account.
This isn’t the only unique delivery promotion that Uber has run recently. A couple of months ago, Uber delivered real live kittens for your cuddling pleasure on National Cat Day. In the past, Uber has delivered roses, ice cream, and other fun treats to users as well.
