Uber $30 Ride Bonus Ends November 23, 2014

As I’ve explained many times in the past, Uber is one of those companies that uses technology to make 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 UberBlack, 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 long offered sign-up and referral bonuses, whereby both the person referring and the person being referred get a bonus. Since June, Uber has been offering a bonus 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 (or in many cases, enough for a nearly two hour visit to Dominos). Keep in mind the bonus is only valid in the country in which it was issued, and it expires within six months (which is a new rule as of last month).


Anyway, it’s worth noting that this bonus will be decreased to $20 after November 23, 2014, for both the person referring and the person being referred. Keep in mind that the bonus is based on when you sign-up and not necessarily when you take the ride, so if you sign up for Uber now and take your first ride in December, you’d still get the $30 ride instead of the $20 ride.

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 free ride credit in your account. Then when you take your first ride, the cost will automatically be deducted from your credit balance.


  1. If its your first time signing up I would really appreciate it if any of you could use my promo code zp49t. Thank you!
