Cebu, Philippines — Uber, the world’s leading ride sharing application, is bringing its annual celebration of the world’s favorite frozen treat to Cebu. For the first time, Cebuano riders, can take part in one of the world’s largest ice cream socials — Uber Ice Cream
This year’s Uber Ice Cream will be held in over 400 cities in 69 countries this July 15, and over one million people are expected to join in on the fun, that’s why this year’s theme is “Indulge Together.”
This year Uber partnered with Unilever to create magical ice cream delivery experiences by delivering Magnum Infinity ice cream bars to riders in the Queen City of the South.
Cebu is the second metropolitan area in the Philippines for Uber to operate in. Uber started providing safe, comfortable, and convenient rides in December 2015. Just last week, the ridesharing application made available the cash payment option to all riders in Cebu, making it the first city in the Philippines with 100% roll out of the aforementioned payment option.
“Metro Manila has been part of the Uber Ice Cream celebration for the past two years and we’re excited for Cebu to be part of this global celebration,” shares Laurence Cua, Uber Philippines’ general manager. “The love for ice cream is universal, and we’re excited to invite Cebuanos to join the fun and excitement of Uber Ice Cream.”
To enjoy this special treat, riders must simply choose the Ice Cream option on the Uber app between 11am to 3pm, input their location, and wait to receive the ice cream within minutes. Runners will deliver four bars of Magnum ice cream for a discounted rate of just P199 and together with the delectable frozen treat every delivery comes with a surprise.
Uber Ice Cream will be available in the following areas within Metro Cebu:
● Ayala Center Cebu, Cebu City
● Cebu IT Park, Cebu City
Uber is also encouraging everyone to take a few minutes off their day to enjoy the ice cream with their friends and family. To make the event more memorable, participants can take a groupie while enjoying their Magnum bars and share it through their social media pages and use the hashtag #UberIceCream.
As an additional treat, new riders who sign up for an account now can use the promo code UBERTREATSCEBU to get a free trip worth P200. Riders can also use the said amount to order ice cream on July 15. This promo is valid on July 15, 2016.
