Football enthusiasts in the U.S. are preparing themselves for the 50th edition of Super Bowl this Sunday. However, there are some people who do not like Super Bowl but Uber will try to make them happy this week.
Uber has planned a number of events this week in celebration of Super Bowl and Wednesday can be special for some animal lovers as UberPuppy will deliver puppies to customers.
"Not into football? That's cool. Paws whatever you're doing, because Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl is coming straight to you," says Uber.
The company has teamed with respectable animal organizations such as Animal Planet, the SF SPCA, Peninsula Humane Society and Berkeley Humane Society, which will bring the puppies to Uber customers.
Uber suggests that puppies will be available on-demand for a while to select customers in Washington DC, Denver, New York, Orange County, Los Angeles and the Bay Area between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. local time on Wednesday, Feb. 3.
Uber users will see a Puppy icon on the Uber app starting 11 a.m. and can request for puppies to be sent for a while. However, only some lucky users will get a puppy squad and their coaches. Users opting for UberPuppy will be charged $30 for the service.
The ride hailing service is also offering other promotions as part of Super Bowl 50 celebrations on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday this week.
Super Bowl viewers will store food and drinks before the start of the event. Customers who want to try "26 delicious buffalo wings from Double Decker or a dozen wings from Hi-Tops" can take advantage of UberEATS deliveries, which will be available on Feb. 7 between 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Customers just have to open their Uber app and tap on the plate icon at the top of the screen and order for on-demand wings. Only limited customers will be able to place the order. Customers successful in placing the order will get delivery within 10 minutes and their card will be billed for $22.95 (26 wings) or $18 (for 12 wings).
According to Forbes, chicken wings are one of the most favorite food items consumed during Super Bowl. Forbes estimates that more than 1 billion chicken wings will be eaten during Super Bowl 50.
Super Bowl 50 will see Carolina Panthers take on the Denver Broncos this coming Sunday at the Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara. Finishing the regular season with a 15-1 record, Panthers are the favorite.
