ATTENTION, GELATO-LOVING READERS: The ice cream icon will appear on your Uber App on Friday from 11am. If you signed up today your credit will carry over to the promotion on Friday.
Holy cow, Urban Listers, have we got a scoop for you! [Note: this is an ice-cream pun.]
Tomorrow, those classy folk at Uber (you know, the luxury car service every-one will not shut up about because it's so amazing and better than regular cabs? Yeah, that Uber.) have a very special treat in store for you. For one day only they are delivering Gelato Messina (ie Australia's best gelato) right to your door. We are not even joking. We wouldn't do that to you, Melbournites.
If you love ice cream and have not tried Messina's Uber flavour, now is the time - wherever you are. All you need to do to get your paws on your own tub of Messina is open the Uber app, and slide the ice cream icon over the ice cream deliver option, then order away! Within minutes, the gelato will be delivered to you by the Uber team and charged to your Uber account.
New Uber users have an even sweeter deal: use the promo code ICECREAMMEL when you sign up and you will receive $20 off your Gelato Messina purchase. That's a tub for FREE!
Are you freaking out yet?
Yep, the cool kids at Uber will deliver Gelato Messina right to your door, meaning you don't have to brave the elements to get your paws on their delicious icy goods. And if you're a first-time Uber user, your first tub is free! You don't have to move a muscle, and gelato is yours! Shut the front door!
This gelato-madness is kicking off from 11am tomorrow until sold out (so we recommend you act fast!). If you happen to miss out on the madness, you can use the $20 on your first Uber ride!
Tubs of delicious Messina are going for $20, and $15 for an additional tub (there's a limit of two tubs per order—don't be greedy!), and there's an assortment of flavours available created by Messina for #UberIceCream to celebrate the occasion.
And it's not just Melbourne who's being treated—Uber are offering free, personally delivered ice cream on a global scale. Over 130 countries are in for an icy treat.
Because we'd hate for you to miss out (Messina stocks, while plentiful, are limited!), here's our step-by-step guide to scoring gelato tomorrow:
How to place an order for Gelato Messina:
> Download or open the Uber app on your phone and enter promo code ICECREAMMEL for new users.

Enjoy, Urban Listers! I know we will!
