Uber And Alaska Offer Free Rides To SeaTac

Uber and Alaska Airlines have teamed up to offer a pretty awesome promotion for travel to SeaTac Airport on December 23 & 24. The details are as follows:


  1. Open your Uber app on December 23rd or 24th
  2. Request your ride TO Seattle-Tacoma International Airport
  3. Hop out at the airport knowing that your pals at Alaska Airlines have taken care of that fare up to $50HOORAY!


  • Your ride must end at Sea-Tac Airport and must be requested December 23rd or 24th, 2013
  • The fare will be covered up to $50. If your fare is more, the remainder will be charged to the card on file.
  • Keep in mind that we will be busy so please make sure to leave yourself enough time to get to the airport + all the fun time with security. 😉
  • Limit one Uber ride to the airport per person.
  • This offer is good while supplies last.

I spent about half an hour reading the email and banging my head trying to figure out how you were supposed to prove you’re flying Alaska Airlines in order to qualify for the promotion, but as it turns out, it seems you don’t have to be flying Alaska Airlines to qualify! So as long as you take an Uber to SeaTac Airport on December 23 or 24 you’ll automatically get up to $50 of your ride covered. That’s a pretty awesome deal!

Unfortunately I’ll be headed home on December 22, so it seems I’ll be missing this promotion by a day. Bleh!



  1. surge pricing sucks, but you know up front what it is and there are always alternatives: bus, regular taxi, friends car, train, etc. Much like a plumber that will charge you double to come to your house at 1am to fix your toilet, UBER uses Surge Pricing to get/keep drivers on the road by offering them more money. It is much different than an opportunistic money grab, like what might happen just before a storm and suddenly your neighborhood store is charging double for those batteries and candles than they were a day earlier. One could also suggest that the airlines are guilty of Surge Pricing….
