Uber is back with their free ride offer up to $30! They ran this offer last summer/fall, but downgraded it to $20 back in November. So now, all new users can get a free ride up to $30 when signing up through a referral link. You must sign up for Uber by February 16, 2015, and my assumption is after that the referral offer will go back down to a free ride up to $20. This is currently the best offer you can get and unfortunately the days of combining a referral sign up offer with a Groupon type promotion are over.
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 then a car service, but slightly more expensive than a yellow cab (might actually be cheaper depending on which city you are in). 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.
New User Promotion:
- Sign up for Uber through a referral link. They just upped the promotion to 1 free ride up to $30. 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. Remember, the person referring you also gets a free ride credit of up to $30.
Of course you are better off using your free ride on an expensive ride that will cost close to or at least $30. Using it to go down the street isn’t worth it, so for those times just take a taxi until you can really maximize on your $30 free! I do not believe you can opt out of not using the free ride on your first ride.
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!
This is only valid for those who sign up in the US and the credit will only work for rides in the US as well.
