For reasons I'm not sure we'll ever fully understand, December is Ugly Sweater season across America. And this Thursday, Uber is making it as easy as possible to get your hands on one for free.
The ride-hail company is teaming up with Shark Tank darling Tipsy Elves on a promotion that's sure to have you in a tizzy: On Thursday, Dec. 8, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., they'll send up to two special "Boston" ugly sweaters straight to your door. Or chimney. (Their joke, not mine.)
Here's how it will work:

Open the Uber app, go to the Promotions tab and apply the promo code ‘ELVESBOS16’. If you have the new Uber app, go to the Payment tab to add the promo code.
After entering the promo code, the custom Ugly Sweater vehicle option will appear in the app.
Once connected, a car carrying an Ugly Sweater will arrive in minutes.
This all sounds too good to be true; and I admit, it is a cool idea. But you should know it comes with some conditions. First and foremost, they're only offering a few sizes – women's medium and men's large and extra-large. Which is a bit of a bummer, but you know what they say about beggars ...
Also, demand for this will be really high, so don't get your hopes up. (I'll just come out and say it: I'd definitely rock this sweater on the regular.) Inventory will fly faster than Saint Nick and his reindeer, so get on it early and don't give up until you get what you want.
