So, you've decided to start using Uber. But, before you take your first ride, you probably want to try to find an Uber promo code. These codes, which are generally only usable for your first ride, can save you a fair bit of money, maybe even get you a free ride. Keep reading to find out how to get a promo code for your first Uber trip.
An Uber promo code is a code you can enter that will give you a discount on the ride. The exact amount of the discount varies, often by location, but they can get as high as $25. More typically, they are $15. If your ride is greater than the amount of the discount, your ride is free. However, any excess does not get applied to your next ride. If the amount of the discount is less than the cost of your ride, you just have to pay the difference. In general, you will have no more than 30 days to use a promo code.
There are a few ways you can get an Uber promo code. Uber itself gives some out. Just log into your Uber account and do a search for promos. If you know someone who drives for the company or takes rides from it, he or she may share their promo code with you to get rewards, so it doesn't hurt to ask. Finally, various companies and bloggers give out Uber codes online for promotions, so doing a search for Uber promo codes in any search engine could get you some.

Remember, once you have applied the code to your account, you have only 30 days to use it before it expires.
