Uber is an on-demand private driver service offered in major cities around the United States including my two favorite cities, San Francisco and New York.
Right now there is a special promotional code for a free $15 worth of credit for new users. (Sorry existing users!) On top of the promo code, if you use a referral link from an existing Uber user, you actually receive an additional $10 credit, making your grand total for free credits at $25.
Whether you think one night you’ll be out late at night in San Francisco and need a private driver to pick you and your friends up, or if you think you’ll need a private ride from the airport in New York City to your hotel or destination, it never hurts to have some free Uber credit on you!
- Click here for my referral link for Uber.
- Doing so will get you that free $10 credit for being referred, and on the sign-up page and keep the promo code on the sign-up page as “uberfam” to get the $10 credit.
- Immediately after signing up, make sure you go to the promotions page and type in the promotion code “DRESSFORSUCCESS“ use “DISRUPTSF” into the promo code area to get your loot to the full $25. (Note: For using the referral code, I get $10 credit if you ever decide to ride with Uber.)
- That’s it! Download the app for your iOS or Android device so that if you need that ride in the future, you can just order it via your mobile phone.
Post UPDATED at 2:45 PM on Fri. 9/7/12: I updated the instructions above to be CLEARER than they were. For those of you who already registered but didn’t get the full $25 promotional credit (and only received $15 because you replaced uberfam at signup with DRESSFORSUCCESS), just email Uber support and let them know that you didn’t receive the $10 for the referral credit and explain you used my referral link. They should be able to manually credit you the amount. Sorry for any confusion!
UPDATE at 12:36 AM on Sat. 9/15/12: Thanks to reader Elliot, who posted in the comments section here, I have updated the promo code in this post with one that is currently working. I expect that it’ll most likely expire within the next few weeks. Feel free to read the comments section at Elliot’s original post. And if you end up using DISRUPTSF, post a comment reply to Elliot and thank him. 🙂
