$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. 

Uber Offer

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.

Lyft Offer

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.

GOOGLE and GMAPS for new users only, REQUEST invalid code. Oh well, worth a shot.

“To get started, all you have to do is open the ride services tab on Google Maps and tap on “REQUEST” to take a ride. For a limited time, all new riders in the U.S. will receive $15 off their first ride.

Happy riding! “

This works. No code needed. Just ordered the Uber on google maps. You probably need the latest version of google maps. An offer pops up and you need to link google with your Uber account. A little work but worth it. After you log in Uber confirms the price.

Booked Uber through Google maps worked for me and I am an existing user. Within Google maps app it said “promo applied” Didn’t try manually entering the code.

Don’t use code, just go to Google map app, and click requests. It is automatically applied. Im not a new user and it worked for me.
I repeat do not use code, access through Google map request.

Looks like this is limited to Android. The integrated Uber/Google functionality is not listed on my IPhone app, and instead opens Uber directly to finish when i request a ride.
