Uber is targeting some of its most loyal riders in California with a free ride — on an airplane. The ever-popular ride-sharing service is continuing to expand its reach and improve customer loyalty by offering riders more incentive to use its services. Although Uber has a frequent rider program, Uber VIP, it’s hardly anything to get excited about. But with this new offer for select California riders, there’s definitely a new level of interest.
According to the email sent to passengers, select riders can get a free round-trip flight with Surf Air, courtesy of Uber. Riders must reserve their flight by August 31 for travel through September 30, 2016. According to the terms and conditions, all flyers must complete and pass a background check before flying with Surf Air.
Last month, we gave away a one-month Surf Air subscription to two readers (worth $1,950 each). Surf Air is a membership-only service, so this deal from Uber could be pretty valuable if you’re eligible. If interested, it’s best to check for yourself and enter your information.
If you don’t already have an Uber account, you can sign up here to receive your first ride for free (up to $20) from TPG. Also don’t forget to sync a credit card with your account that will offer you the most rewards, such as the Chase Sapphire Preferred, which will earn you 2x points on travel.
