Looking back I haven’t posted about Uber before and that is kind of surprising. I have several friends who are local drivers but my experience is all in getting rides.
I LOVE Uber.
Last fall I went up to New York City for a few days. The friend I went with had used Uber often so we took it EVERYWHERE. The drivers were super friendly and cars were clean (Uber gets so much feedback people with dirty cars or bad attitudes don’t last long). It was about 50% cheaper than taking taxis and much quicker than the bus.
Once I came home I figured I would never use Uber again- I was wrong! I have had to be at places several times where parking is HORRIBLE. I jump in an Uber and spend $5 to not have to spend 20 minutes driving around a parking garage to finally find a space on the roof and then walk 10 blocks in heels.
If you think you might try it out sometime Uber is currently offering new members a FREE ride credit up to $10 whenever you sign up through this link! Note that free ride value amounts vary from city to city.
Even better, once you have signed up, enter in the promo code LAYSSUMMER on your payment screen to score an additional $5 off ONE trip – valid thru July 10th only!
