Through Amazon Local’s deal-a-day site you can get $25 in FREE Uber credits. You do not actually need to purchase the deal like other Uber deals that have come and come, you simply have to just claim the code! Since this is a free promo, I suggest claiming the code quickly as this will probably “sell” out prior to the end date. And like all other Uber promotions, this is for new users only.
If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you are probably well educated on what Uber is, but in case you have not been paying attention or new to this site, Uber is an “On-demand car service that allows everyone to have a private driver experience through iPhone, SMS, and web based requests.” It is less expensive than a car service, but slightly more expensive than a yellow cab. Your credit card is stored in your account so there is no exchange of money at the end of the ride. A 20% gratuity is automatically added as well. Cars are extremely new/clean and the company will even text you with the drivers name for extra security.
The one difference with this Amazon Local promotion versus other promotions in the past is that this promo states that the $25 can only be applied to one ride and any unused credits will be forfeited. So this is more like a free ride up to $25, not a $25 credit that can be used multiple times. If you think you will be taking a ride that will cost much less than $25 then I suggest holding off on applying this new user promo offer and wait for another promo that allows the credits to be used over multiple rides. Or just create another account when the time comes. This credit must be redeemed by February 28, 2014.
Steps on combining both promotions (make sure to pay attention and follow the correct order):
- Now, for new Uber members, which you all must be to jump on the first deal, you can get a free $10 in credit just by signing up! This sign up must come from an existing member.
- Via Amazon Local “purchase” the $25 credit. As mentioned, this is is for new Uber customers only.
To ensure you are able to get credits from a referral and the Amazon Local free promotion you must FIRST sign up for Uber using the referral link and then enter the Amazon Local voucher code you receive in the “Promotions” box after signing into your Uber account. DO NOT click the Uber sign up link that is given in the voucher email from Amazon Local.
