Update 3: Read from comment 98 and on to learn how you can still take advantage of the $25 bud light promo…remember that if you don’t have an uber account for first use the 2 promotions below before using a bud light code.
All uber customers can get a $25 credit instantly with this new promotion!
I played twice and got the $25 credit both times but it only let me apply 1 code to my account.
If you are a new customer be sure to do the promotions below to first get your $40/$70 credit and only then use this promo which will give you another $25! If you aren’t having success with the link above here are some one-time use $25 codes. Be considerate and post a comment of which one you used so that I can cross it off:
Update 2: The $20 signup bonus will end on Friday, 01/31 and it’s fully stackable with the code below so that you can get $40 off your first ride!
Update: Effective immediately, uberX is slashing prices in 16 markets by up to 34% to make the service far cheaper than using a taxi.
In L.A., a ride from LAX to Hollywood, for instance, would cost $51 in a cab, but traffic permitting, an UberX would cost just $29.50. In San Francisco, a cab ride from the Mission to SOMA costs about $11, but an UberX would be just $8.
Combine that with a four-way fare split, Kalanick said, and the ride is the same price as taking the bus.
Best part is that at any airport you get to skip the long taxi line and go straight into your private car!
My wife was able to use some of our uber credits for the first time in NYC this past week, so thanks again for signing up with my referral link and making her ride free 😀
It really is an incredible service, within seconds of requesting an uberX car from the app a picture of the driver and his phone number came up and he was there in a comfortable non-smelly SUV within a minute.
The cost including tax and tip from the Upper West Side to Crown Heights came out to be $55, right at the bottom of the fare quote estimate even though it was during rush hour.
Far better than hailing a cab even without any credits, but combined with the $40 in credits that you can get as a new user it’s a no-brainer! If you use uber from an airport you can easily text or call your driver to tell them exactly where to meet you.

Promo 1. For a limited time only, new uber customers can get $20 of free uber credit by first signing up via my referral link
The $20 signup credit never expires.
Use it to hail a car wherever you find yourself.
“Better, faster, and cheaper than a taxi. Choose from uberX, UberTAXI, UberBLACK, UberSUV, or UberLUX.”
Promo 2. Immediately after signing up for a new account enter the following code on the promotion page for $20 off UberBLACK or uberX (Exp: 08/08/15) KALEB
You will then see a $20 non-expiring account bonus and a $20 promotion expiring in 2015 as shown here.
Note that you will only see $20 as an account credit. The other $20 is in the promo field and will stack with the $20 account credit.
If you take a $30 ride it will first take $20 from the KALEB promo and then take $10 from your $20 new account bonus, leaving you with $10 in non-expiring credit remaining.
Promo 3. You can get another $50 to spend on your first ride in Orange County, California (SNA airport is in Orange County for example) with code (Exp:01/31): OCHOLIDAYS
Note that you can only do promo 1+2 or promo 1+3, you can’t use all 3 on the same account.
