Good news! Uber is delivering free ice cream across London today

For one day only, taxi firm Uber is delivering a Friday treat to customers in the capital. The company will be offering complimentary Wall’s Cornettos between 11am and 7pm, despite the rainy weather.

It’s the fourth year Uber has carried out this promotion, which is happening in eight UK cities and over 250 cities worldwide where Uber operates.

Fancy getting in on this deal? Uber has published the following instructions:

1. Open the Uber app on Friday, July 24.
2. Set your location and request ICE CREAM.
3. If connected, order away and Ice Cream will be delivered curbside in minutes.

‘This is a global promotion with local flavor, and it’s as simple as ever,’ explained the company in a blog post. ‘Tap a button, and get a brain freeze in hundreds of cities around the world.’

However, while many happy customers have shared their Uber Ice Cream success stories on Twitter, there is a downside to this PR stunt. Demand is high and as Uber warned before the offer started, ‘availability is limited,’ which means there’s a rather long queue for Cornettos.
