Alternative Taxi App Uber Offering to Deliver Christmas Tree to Your House

uber treeAlternative luxury cab service, Uber and DIY superstore, Home Depot really wants you to get into the mood for evergreens. The two are making Christmas Tree shopping super easy by offering Uber deliveries this Thursday. To get your own tree, just download the app and select the “UberTREE” option between the hours of 11 am – 8pm.

Instead of spending your weekend wrestling with a tree from the not-so-near farm or slushy street corner, kick back, pour yourself an extra glass of eggnog and watch your app as Uber takes care of the heavy lifting. With the help of The Home Depot and a bit of holiday magic, Uber will deliver a live tree to your doorstep with the touch of a button.

Depending on your city, you will be getting a 7-8ft Frasier Fir or a Noble Fir. Each tree costs $135, and there are no refunds!
