Good news for those of you who haven’t signed up for your own Uber accounts yet! Uber is a great new service that lets you easily order a town car, SUV, or taxi from your phone. The car comes to you (and you can watch it coming on the map), you jump in, you give directions, you ride in comfort, you jump out. The ride gets billed to your credit card automatically and you get emailed a receipt. Simple, easy, very convenient. They have drivers in most major North American and European cities.
If you haven’t had the chance to try it yet, Uber has given me a code that will get you $25 in free Uber credits if you use it to sign up. It’s super simple: go to Uber.com and register on your computer or download the iOS or Android apps from m.uber.com and enter febfree894773 into the registration form. The code is only valid to the end of February 2013 so hurry!
