Uber has already shaken up the taxi industry. Now it’s disrupting Christmas.
Tomorrow only, the ride-service app is partnering with Home Depot to deliver seven- to eight-feet-tall Fraser Fir Christmas trees to customers for $135. Users just have to request an UberTREE on their app, and then their Uber account will be charged and the tree will be at their front door “within minutes.”
The company says it expects demand to be high and supply limited. Customers are asked to check back often if their request doesn’t go through the first time.
The orders comes with the tree, a tree stand, and an Uber gift. The Christmas tree delivery option will be available between 11 a.m. and 8 pm.
