April 25th marks the last day for new Uber users to earn a $20 free ride credit. This offer was supposed to end in January and was extended until now so we’ll have to hold out hope that it will be extended yet again.


This is my referral link, so if you take a ride, I’ll also get $20 in credits. Then once you have created an account, log in and go to the go to the Promotions tab at the top of the page, and enter the promo code Hipmunk, which will automatically register you for another $25 off your first ride by May 30, 2014 (it was originally through May 1, but was extended).

For all you Uber holdouts, now is a great time to try it thanks to the $45 in instant credit you get – and hey, if you don’t like it, you don’t have to use it, but might as well get some free rides out of it. Though I can’t imagine anyone not liking Uber except for its dynamic pricing which means rush hour rides cost a lot more than at other times.

Over the past year or so, Uber has become one of my top travel apps and my go-to car service, even in cities with plentiful taxis for several reasons. It’s easy to locate nearby vehicles, and gives you the option of choosing between low-cost UberX cars (which actually just lowered fares in 16 markets) and SUV’s when riding with a group of friends. The drivers are almost always exceptionally polite, the cars are clean, and it’s quick and efficient.

It’s easy to keep track of expenses since all ride receipts are automatically billed to the credit card on file (I use my Sapphire Preferred for 2.14x Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent since Uber counts as a travel category merchant) and receipts are emailed automatically. Plus, in some cities like Paris, hailing taxis can be impossible, so the  convenience factor of being able to get a ride in cities where you have trouble getting a taxi can be amazing (and you never have to deal with a driver that wants you to pay in cash!).

All in all, Uber is one of my all-time favorite travel apps, and for you new users, having a $20 credit waiting in your account can be useful – especially when you’re somewhere where you can’t take a taxi and need a ride. Make sure you don’t miss out on the free credit and sign up on or before April 25th!

  • Steve

    Only the first referral link worked. I went to the promotions tab to get the second one and got this message.

  • Jonathan

    Yeah, it also didn’t work for my friend. I don’t think they’re stackable anymore. They were for a while though!

  • Heather

    I also received an error message. I used the first referral link, but when I entered Hipmunk it didn’t work.

  • Matt

    These two are stackable for new users only.

    1. Sign up with the code: uberfreetwentypromo

    2. Once registered, go to promo tab and enter: KALEB

    First code gives $20. Second code gives free first ride (up to $20) for a potential total of $40.

  • Aaron

    Does anyone know if the current $20 promo code that is given with any referral code, expires on the 26th OR one just needs to add it to their account before then? I was also under the impression you have to add it and use it by the 26th.
    Anyone able to clarify?

  • melissa

    Would not take the second promo (hipmunk) for me either. Bummer. Should have read the comments before signing up. “Worked for a while” seems strange since the info was posted/reposted yesterday.

  • Aaron

    An Uber rep said stacking of promo codes is no longer possible, even for new customers.

  • rkc

    What’s the point of using this referral, if the 2nd code doesn’t work?
