Almost identical to the deal that was offered about a month ago, Uber is offering a “no strings attached” $35 credit to new members. Uber is 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 — even tip.
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 Amazon Local (which must be requested by July 10, and redeemed by August 31), 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 Amazon Local. Your account will then reflect a $35 credit.
It really is that easy, and if you’re not yet a member this is a really easy way to get a $35 Uber ride for free.
