Uber is one of those companies that just makes life better. When public transportation in a city isn’t good, I used to get really frustrated by the lack of options and taxi “mafias,” though for the cities in which Uber operates I love them. They have Uber Black Car, which is the “standard” service and a bit more than a taxi, while they also have UberX, which is usually cheaper than a taxi. And thanks to the instant feedback loop (you rating the driver and the driver rating you), service is excellent across the board, in my experience.
Uber has a pretty cool referral program, and historically the bonus was $10. That means the person being referred gets a $10 bonus and the person doing the referring gets a $10 bonus after the person they’ve referred has taken their first ride.
So far this year Uber has doubled their referral bonus, so both the person doing the referring and person being referred get a $20 bonus. Anyway, this double referral bonus will finally be going away this weekend. Tomorrow, Friday, April 25, is the last day to receive $20 for referring someone or for being referred. Of course the promotion could come back at some point, but for now the bonus will decrease.
So if you sign up for Uber now you will be given a $20 credit. You can sign up using my referral link or feel free to post your link below and people can sign up through there. Once you’ve signed up with a referral link you should immediately see the $20 credit in your account.
Alternatively, if you have an Uber account, be sure to refer your friends by tomorrow so that you can maximize the bonus you get and the bonus they get. $20 is more than enough for many Uber rides, so make sure you get all your friends to sign up through your links — I’m always amazed by how many people haven’t yet signed up for Uber.
