Uber has an interesting promotion going on through Sunday. If you haven’t heard of Uber, it’s a car service that you can flag from your smartphone. Lately, I’ve been taking the UberX, which are cars owned by fellow NYC residents but licensed to pick up people via Uber. Last week I took an UberX from Soho, down over the Williamsburg bridge, over the BQE to Astoria and it was $40 – so not a whole lot more than a cab. Plus, tip is included and it’s all charged straight to your phone, so no fumbling at the end with your wallet. You can also order black cars, SUVs, and cabs through Uber.
If you haven’t tried Uber, sign up through my referral code to get a $10 credit.
But wait, there’s more.
Uber has a promotion going on this week where you can get a $20 credit for up to two rides that are to, from or within Brooklyn. Use the promo code BKLOVESuberX. Note this is only valid on UberX rides in Brooklyn from noon today through 11:59pm on Sunday, 8/25. This promo code will cover rides up to $20 – if your ride costs more, the balance will be charged to your card that’s synch’d with Uber. Plus, show your UberX receipt at the following retailers to get discounts. Note only one rider will get access to these deals from this receipt.
Enjoy Brooklyn this weekend!
