I’ve written about Uber before (plenty I know, and I am sure some of you are sick of it, but…) 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. Additionally, tip is included and no cash or credit card is needed – everything is linked to your account. The cars are also extremely new/clean, and the company will even text you with the drivers name for extra security.
So now back to the promotion (and make sure to pay attention as there are multiple levels to maximize):
- Sign up for Uber through a referral link. Mine is giving $20 in free credit right off the bat – some accounts are giving $10 or $20. You can sign up using my Uber referral link, or get a friend to refer you – just do not miss out on the free credit money (only leave your referral link if it offers a $20 sign up bonus, and please be honest about it!) money.
- Once you create your account and are signed in, go to the “Promotions” link on the top right-hand corner of the page. Enter the code “HIPMUNK”. This will then give you $25 in free credit. This promotional credit expires May 1, 2014 and will be taken off your first ride. If you are not going to use Uber by this date, then DO NOT apply the promotional credit code. This is because many codes are for new users only, so if you apply the credit and do not use it you will miss the opportunity to get new user credits on your account. The value in this credit is best used for a $25+ ride as it cannot be used across multiple rides (the $20 from the referral sign up can though)
Remember, this is for new users only and unfortunately existing users will not reap from this promotion. This is one of the better new user sign up bonuses we’ve seen. Enjoy your Uber deal and discounted taxi/car service!
