Free Uber Credit for Existing Customers

I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).

Uber, which normally only gives free Uber credit to new customers, will give even existing customers $5 towards their next ride with promo code LAYSSUMMER.

This helps me not at all because I’m in Austin through the validity of this promo and the only way to use Uber inside the city is with this hack.

For most of you though just log into Uber, go to the menu, and choose ‘promotions’.

Click ‘add code’ and type in the promotion code LAYSSUMMER.

You’ll receive $5 off your next Uber ride taken in the US by Sunday night.

The offer from Lay’s Potato Chips has apparently been out for a couple of weeks but it was news to me when One Mile at a Time posted it because I don’t follow — or generally eat — Lay’s (or potato chips).
