I have an embarrassing confession to make. I actually just signed up for Uber for the first time. I’ve used Uber several times with friends, though for whatever reason I can’t quite figure out, I’ve never actually signed up. For those of you not familiar with it, Uber is basically the future of car services. They’re an on demand car service whereby you use their app to request a car, and one will show up (usually) within minutes. They can see your location and you can see their location. Best of all there’s no cash with the transaction, and you’re automatically charged through Uber. Tip is even included. Best of all it’s not even that much more expensive than a cab.
Anyway, they have a standard sign-up bonus of $10, though right now through Gilt there’s an additional $25 bonus for new members, for a total of $35, more than enough for a “free” ride.
To get the bonus you can first order a free $25 Uber bonus certificate for new members through Gilt City, which can be done here. You should receive an email with the free $25 certificate within half an hour or so of placing the order.
Once that’s complete you can sign up for Uber, and will automatically be given a $10 credit. You can sign up using my referral link, or otherwise feel free to post your link below and people can sign up through there.
Once you have an Uber account and have received your $25 certificate, you can go to the “promotions” page of your Uber account and enter the promotion code from Gilt City. Your account will then reflect a $35 credit.
So if you’re as dumb as me and haven’t had an Uber account till today, hopefully this bonus is enough of a motivating factor. The $25 credit through Gilt City is available for a few more days, and has to be credited to your Uber account by August 22.
