When was the last time you made someone’s day for no reason at all? Well, why not today?

We’re partnering with NetFlorist to declare 2 August  “Why-not Day,” which means you get to spoil your sweetheart with red roses for only R99! Because, why not?

Here’s what you need to know:

On Wednesday 2 August, we’ll surprise hundreds of customers in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Pretoria with special deliveries that include a bouquet of 12 red roses from NetFlorist.

UberEATS customers can order an arrangement of red roses for instant delivery, or a scheduled order, and have them delivered to their shnookies. Roses will be available from the UberEATS app between 9am – 3pm or until they sell out.

Supplies are limited, so order early to make sure you get in on the fun.
