Just received an email from Uber, not sure if this is a freebie or a deal but posting as I'm sure a lot of people can take advantage of it.
Ride free tonight!
Whether it’s a trip to your local pub, a ride home from the big match, or you're planning a night out in Quayside—Ubers in Tyneside on Friday night are free up to £10.
From 9pm to 2am on Friday, August 5th, anyone who requests a ride in Tyneside will get up to £10 off up to 2 trips—whether you're new to Uber or an existing Uber user!
That means that an UberX trip from Gosforth to the Sage (normally around £5) or a trip from Jesmond to Grey Street (normally around £3) could be completely free. It’s that simple.
How to get your free rides*:
1. Open your Uber app between 9pm and 2am on Friday, August 5th in Tyneside
2. Request an uberX, uberXL, or UberEXEC
3. That’s it!
