Uber is feeling bad for money-wasting Millennials blowing money on $22 smashed avocado toasts at hipster cafes and can't afford to buy a house. It has partnered up with a number of restaurants across Australia to deliver free smashed avocado toasts to the mouths of Millennials through its food delivery service UberEats. Here's how you can get in on the free smashed avo action.
The deal is actually available to people of all ages, but the free avo toast promotion was motivated by a condescending newspaper column last week where a baby boomer stood on his soap box and basically said the reason why Millennials can't afford to buy a home is because they're squandering their wealth on overpriced lunches.
"Well, millennials, we too share your love for the humble avocado and we support your right to a guilt free brunch, so we’ve teamed up with some of your favourite restaurant partners across the country to bring you your city’s best and most affordable #SmashedAvos, without the side order of #SmashedDreams," Uber said.
The free avo toast is free for all users that are new to UberEats. Existing users won't get a free toast, but if they ordered one, they won't be charged for the cost of delivery. Uber has teamed up with the following restaurants for this offer:
- Sydney: Three Blue Ducks, John Smith, Stop Valve, 169 Darlinghurst and Well Co. Cafe. $15-$17.
- Melbourne: Serotonin Eater, Patch Cafe, Joinery, Sardi Cafe, Mr Hubbard Cafe & Larder. $13 – $17.
- Brisbane:Pawpaw, Pineapple Express, Little Loco, Scout Cafe, Miss Bliss Whole Foods Kitchen. $8 – $16.
- Perth: Satchmo Cafe, Source Foods, DuoTone, La Veen Coffee. $9 – $17.50.
- Adelaide: Local Grind, Nagev, The Nourish’d Kitchen, Hello Sarnie, Bar 9 Parkside. $8 – $16.
