Best part of Uber?

It is 90ish outside. Not just that but it is so hot when you walk outside it feels like a Swedish sauna. Hot, sticky, yuck kinda summer day. You know what would rock? Yeah ice cream! Chocolate ice cream. Oh, with lots of peanut butter goodness.

Via Uber Eats?

Er wait what? Are you nuts? Maybe… 🙂

Ice Cream on the way!!!

Sometimes when you need chocolate, or your +1 says they need chocolate, you just have to do something. I mean it is the kind thing to do, right (ok, it was all about me but just go with it ok?)!

No way it is THIS good?

Being that it is just past the 1st of the month my Amex Platinum Card (learn more here) has loaded another $15 of FREEEEE cash into my Uber account. Now the neat thing about Uber is you can use your Uber credits with Uber Eats. I have used Uber Eats a number of times but never for ice cream – in the middle of a hot summer day. Was this a stupid idea?

Ice Cream – Via App and Uber?

The only bad thing about Uber Eats is waiting. Now you do get to track your order from start to finish and someone bringing you frozen chocolate goodness is worth tracking – right? But did I get, after waiting for just under an hour for my order, frozen goodness or chocolate soup? Let’s see?

Just perfect. Shocked? Yup!

Honestly, I was kinda shocked. The driver brought my order right to my hotel room door and the order was perfect. Cold frozen goodness. Num!

$5 off code if you try Uber Eats

Bottom line, while it may sound ridiculous to order ice cream via Uber Eats on a super hot summer day – at least for me – it was perfect and a great way to burn up this month’s free $15 credits from my Amex Platinum Card (learn more here) plus a few bucks I earned from Uber local offers! Happy summer everyone.- Rene
