Several weeks ago, VNAFlyer reported to View from the Wing a $25 free credit for existing Uber users, that could be applied to your account for a $25 discount off an an Uber ride. Knowing many people applied the same code to their accounts, I wanted to do a follow up post on my experience using it.
After applying the code, and receiving confirmation that it had been applied to my account, and I was thrilled to see it go through successfully.
I took an Uber ride from the Hyatt Mission Bay to the San Diego Airport, and because of surge pricing, the ride totaled $38.
Thinking I had a $25 credit, and not seeing it applied in the final receipt, I emailed Uber for assistance. This was their reply:
After looking up the code further, it appears there are several restrictions in place:
- It truly is $25 Off Your Ride, even for existing customers.
- It’s valid in Canada only.
- It’s for For Rogers customers only.
- It Expires March 31, 2015.
So, if you live in the US and got it on this code, and took an Uber trip within the US and didn’t receive the discount, that’s why. Hope this helps!
PS – As a side note, thanks to Gary and VNA Flyer for reporting this, even though it turned out the code had limited application, It still helps many folks in the north, and it still always kind to share details of potential promotions! Sometimes details aren’t learned until later on, which is more than understandable.
