Free £25 Uber ride for Barclaycard users, also 11th ride ‘free’.

Uber has just announced a new promotion in conjuction with Barclaycard. Both I believe are pretty generous and may appeal to a wide range of people.

Free £25 ride

This one is aimed at first time users. You will need to download the Uber app, or sign up via their website, (and if asked for an invite code please enter my code ‘gezpe‘ so that I get a small referral bonus – thanks!) and add a Barclaycard as a payment method.

You need to use the promotional code ‘BARC25‘ as the promotional code before your first trip. The first free trip gives a discount of up to £25 and must be redeemed before midnight on 2nd July 2017.

If your fare is under £25 then your journey is free and your remaining balance is lost (as you need to use it in one transaction). However if your fare exceeds £25 then you will be charged the difference.

11th ride free – up to £15

If you continue to use a Barclaycard as your payment method, you will get a coupon for the value of £15 for every 10 journeys you make. This promotion runs until the end of 2017, so heavy Uber users may welcome this slight discount.

There is no action you need to take other than ensuring your payments are made using a Barclaycard, and similar to the above you will have to pay the difference if your fare goes above and will forfeit the rest of the voucher if your fare is under.
