$15 off Uber with Google Maps, Works for Existing Users
Originally posted last week. Reposting 1/26 since lots of existing Uber users are getting this to work now.
Google Maps recently added the functionality to be able to fully order an Uber without leaving the Maps app. (Previously, Maps opened you up in the Uber app.)
To celebrate, many new and existing Uber users are getting an offer of $15 off the ride. There’s mention of a couple promo codes (GOOGLE or REQUEST), but the trick to get this to work seems to be to book the ride directly in Google Maps without any promo code. Lots of existing users are getting it to work that way.
First link your Uber account into Google Maps, then come back to Google Maps and order directly from the app. If it’s not working, try updating to the latest version of Google Maps and see if it works.
There’s also a Lyft promo code: GMAPS which gets you $15 off a ride. Valid through 2/2/17. This offer can be saved in your account. This one works only for first time users.
