Uber has been the service of choice for those who need a ride, but don’t want to be bothered with actually hailing a cab. Just last month, Uber announced they would be accepting payments through PayPal, which is certainly a good thing, especially since the company has announced they are offering a service that will get a Christmas tree delivered to your doorstep.
Uber has teamed up with The Home Depot for its tree-delivering service as they will be able to deliver Christmas trees within 10 U.S. cities, although it’ll only be available for one day, which will probably feel extremely long for those stuck delivering trees.
The service will kick of on December 5 and will be accessible through Uber’s smartphone app under a near “UberTree” option. Once the tree has been ordered, all the customer has to do is sit back and sip some eggnog as they wait for their tree to be delivered to their home or office within minutes.
Uber warns its customers to expect high demand when their UberTree service is made available, so you’ll be receiving your tree based on a first-come, first-serve basis. As for UberTree’s cost, it’ll cost a total of $135 to get a 7- to 8-foot Fraser or Noble Fir delivered to your door.
