Uber is one of my all-time favorite travel apps because it allows you to page private cars and taxis directly from your smartphone without having to wait out on the street and try to hail a cab or call a town car. The rates can be a bit more expensive than taxis, though still competitively priced, and the service is a godsend in cities where it can be difficult to find a taxi or at times of day when taxis are scarce. I can usually get taxis in NYC, but I find Uber to be uber-useful in other cities where taxis can scarce and expensive (although according to LA Weekly, the service might shut down in Los Angeles soon).

If you don’t have an Uber account, you can use my link to sign up as a new member before July 7  (the deadline is actually 3am ET on July 8) and after you take your first ride you get $20 in Uber credits (for full disclosure, if you take your ride by July 7, I get a $20 credit as well – but at the very least you’ll be getting a good discount!). Feel free to also share your referral code in the comments.


Then, in order to get an extra $25 credit, go to this Amazon Local page and get a free voucher for $25 for rides via uberX (Uber-owned cars), UberBLACK, or UberSUV only, which you must request before July 10, 2013 and use before August 31, 2013. All in all, you’re looking at $45 in credit as a new Uber user. Hat tip to Lucky on this angle.

One of the things I like about Uber is that the service automatically bills the (points-earning!) credit card you have on file and that gratuity is included, so no arguing with the taxi driver about whether they only take cash, waiting for a receipt, or any other little inconvenience like that. I use my Sapphire Preferred for 2.14 points per dollar, since Chase classifies car service as a travel expense.

Uber is available in over 35 cities, and more than 20 international destinations including Amsterdam, Paris, Stockholm, Vancouver and Milan. While it isn’t always the cheapest way to get around, it can be a lifesaver when other transit options don’t work for your needs – and $20 to start you off should help.

  • mrblogggs

    I Think ripping people off with our referral codes is a scam. People use the code uber20inyourcurrency to get twice as much as these people are suggesting!

    Thanks for the tip! Can’t wait till they start giving out airline points for airport transfers like the zTrip app does.

    Watch out for UBER, they are awesome when demand is normal, but during peak demands, including late at night or when a concert lets out, they charge any where from 1.75 to 3x the base rate. So, when were in Hollywood for a concert on the 4th of July and it let out, they were quoting us 3x fare to get back to our hotel. We ended up walking about 1/2 mile away from the concert and catching a cab for the normal cab fare.. kind of inconvenient, but it would have taken the uber driver forever to get to us in that post-concert traffic anyway.
