Uber $45 sign-up bonus ends tonight

Early in the week I wrote about the amazing $45 Uber sign-up bonus that was being offered to new members. While the $25 Amazon Local deal is valid through July 10, the $20 increased sign-up bonus ends at midnight PT tonight, so if you want the full $45 sign-up bonus you’ll have to sign up by tonight.

As a reminder, here’s what you have to do to take advantage of the offer:

1. Sign up for Uber, and you will automatically be given a $20 credit. You can sign up using my referral link, or otherwise feel free to post your link below and people can sign up through there.

2. Go to Amazon Local and order a free $25 Uber bonus certificate for new members through Amazon Local (which must be requested by July 10, and redeemed by August 31). You should receive an email with the free $25 certificate within half an hour or so of placing the order. The amount won’t show up as a credit balance, though will be applied to your first ride.


It really is that easy, and if you’re not yet a member this is a really easy way to get a $45 Uber ride for free. Even if you wouldn’t otherwise use Uber or don’t plan on using it long term, two minutes of work will pay off big time here.

  1. Now I wish I had not signed up months ago (since I have yet to use the service).

    Although I can’t get the $20 New Member credit (or give you a referral credit), I assume that because I had not yet used the service, I still qualified as a “New Member”. Hence, was able to apply an Amazon cert for a free (<$25) ride for my account. 🙂

    Thnx for the reminder, Ben.

  2. My experience using Uber has not been good. Last week, tried to use at IAD, a message popped up saying- ” Demand is through the roof, please note rates are 2X( twice) at this time( 11.30 P.M., proceed if you accept”. So, instead of $60, i had to pay around $120 for 20 miles.

  3. Use my Uber code, olifb, and get $20 off your first Uber ride. Redeem it at uber.com/invite/olifb

  4. Hi, I’m the last person, probably with zero chances, so I would really appreciate if you clicked on this link 🙂

  5. @ Oscar- I don’t see your link, so I used Bald Army Guy’s

    Mine is down below with <2 hours to go. I would appreciate the referral 🙂

    @Lucky- As a follow up to SG, where does it say that the voucher can only be used in the US?

  6. @ tp — I can’t guarantee it, but since it’s an Amazon Local deal in the US I don’t think it can be used outside the US. My understanding is that Uber credit can’t be used in a different currency, so since it’s in USD it would have to be used here. For example, if you sign up for Uber in Europe you’d get a 20EUR sign-up bonus, as opposed to 20USD.

  7. I followed the instructions so I should have received the credit, but how can I tell? I don’t see a way to view my uber credit.

  8. @ Sean — When you log into your account and click on “dashboard” you should see your current credit. Then if you click on “promotions” you should see the Amazon Local credit.

  9. @Lucky

    Thanks for the reply. When I click on dashboard I don’t see any credit. When I click on promotions I see the Amazon Local credit. I wonder why I didn’t get the $20 sign up credit.

  10. @ Sean — Did you sign up using a referral link? If so the $20 credit should have posted as soon as you signed up. I’d suggest emailing them if it didn’t post.

  11. Yes. In fact, I used your referral link so you should have received $20 too. I emailed them a few min ago. I’ll keep you posted.
