In the past Uber has run some crazy promotions for new members, however things have settled down a bit lately. Right now if you use someone’s referral code to sign-up, you will get $20 and they will get $20. Thankfully there is now a better deal for new members that gives $30 off of the first ride.
To get the $30 credit, simply use the code DREAM15 when signing up through the Uber app. You should then see the credit under the “Payment” section of your account.
Since I already have an Uber account I wasn’t able to verify this code gives the $30 credit, however I was able to see that the code is valid. Additionally this code was sent to us by a reader who verified that he received the full credit. The website Coupon Follow seems to indicate it should work as well.
