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.
They’re back now with one of the best “straightforward” referral bonuses I’ve ever seen. For a limited time, Uber is offering a $30 referral credit, whereby both the person being referred and the person referring receive a $30 credit. That’s more than enough for a free ride in many markets, and in many cases enough for multiple free rides.
So if you sign up for Uber now you will be given a $30 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 $30 credit in your account. Then when you take your first ride, the cost will automatically be deducted from your credit balance.
Alternatively, if you have an Uber account, be sure to refer your friends during this promotion. I’m always amazed by how many people haven’t yet signed up for Uber, and you can’t beat the value of this sign-up bonus, both for the person referring and the person being referred.
