Ben & Jerry's and Uber Eats are Delivering Free Ice Creams to Celebrate the Start of Summer
You'll have to hunt down a code via Instagram first — and the giveaway is on offer in different cities on different days.
Every Australian knows that our warm weather doesn't suddenly kick in when December 1 hits — Sydney just experienced its hottest November night on record, for instance — but the arrival of summer still always feels like an occasion. The end of the year is near, the festive season is in full swing and holidays are so very close. Understandably, that's all worth celebrating.
Fancy marking the warmest portion of the year by licking your way through an ice cream — and a free one at that? Of course you do. So, to make that dream a reality, Ben & Jerry's and Uber Eats have teamed up to deliver free ice cream tubs across the first six days of December.
Every day between Tuesday, December 1–Sunday, December 6, the two companies will be targeting a different Aussie city and handing out freebies. It all kicks off in Melbourne, before heading to Sydney on Wednesday, December 2 and Brisbane on Thursday, December 3. Then, it's Perth's turn on Friday, December 4, Adelaide's on Saturday, December 5 and the Gold Coast's on Sunday, December 6.
To score yourself some ice cream without spending a cent — with around 1500 pints available per city — you will need to do some sleuthing, though. Think of it as a virtual dessert treasure hunt. Uber Eats is dropping clues each day via its Instagram feed, which'll point you to a local celebrity's own Insta page (once you've worked out the clue, that is). On the latter, you'll then find a code. That's what you'll have to enter after you've then hopped over to the Uber Eats app, found the participating Ben & Jerry's outlet near you and picked your favourite flavour. You will need to pay a delivery fee — but the ice cream itself won't cost you a thing.
It's a first in, best dressed kind of giveaway — so you'll want to get in quick. But, when it comes to free ice cream, no one ever needs much motivation.
For more information about the Ben & Jerry's and Uber Eats free ice cream giveaway — which is available in Melbourne on Tuesday, December 1; Sydney on Wednesday, December 2; Brisbane on Thursday, December 3; Perth on Friday, December 4; Adelaide on Saturday, December 5; and the Gold Coast on Sunday, December 6 — keep an eye on Uber Eats' Instagram feed.
