Over the past couple of weeks we’ve seen two promotions (here and here) offering Uber sign-up bonuses of $35. Historically those were about as good as they got.

It appears as if Uber has gotten even more generous, because in the past they’d offer a $10 referral credit when referring a new member. Now they’ve raised that to a $20 referral credit, so along with the $25 Amazon Local certificate out there, that’s a total of $45 in Uber credits for new members.

Here’s how you can take advantage of this promotion:

1. Sign up for Uber, and you will automatically be given a $20 credit. You can sign up using my referral link, or otherwise feel free to post your link below and people can sign up through there.

2. Go to Amazon Local and order a free $25 Uber bonus certificate for new members through Amazon Local (which must be requested by July 10, and redeemed by August 31). You should receive an email with the free $25 certificate within half an hour or so of placing the order. The amount won’t show up as a credit balance, though will be applied to your first ride.


It really is that easy, and if you’re not yet a member this is a really easy way to get a $45 Uber ride for free. Even if you wouldn’t otherwise use Uber or don’t plan on using it long term, two minutes of work will pay off big time here.

    Thanks for the tip! Just wanted to note that European users like myself seem to receive a 20 EURO credit when signing up with your link. Comes down an extra 6 USD, not bad at all :)

    Uber has definitely been useful for me in the past, and the company is very responsive to billing issues. My driver got lost during my ride once, an all it took to get a credit for the extra distance was a quick email to support.

    Hi Ben,

    Not sure if I am the only one getting this but, when I apply the Amazon code, it doesn’t reflect on my credit balance but it appears on my online profile as “promotions available”.

    Hopefully that means it would use up the $25 amazon credit first when we use Uber.

    Your thoughts?

    @ Tisha — that’s correct, with your first ride the $25 Amazon credit would be applied.

    I’m never one to turn down a referral offer. Just to add to the guilt factor, I had knee surgery this morning so I’m not allowed to drive for the next 6 weeks. Towncars/cabs get expensive, guys! http://www.uber.com/invite/kulg4
