Using Uber promotions

Uber offers special promotions to provide discounts on rides to riders.

To apply a promotional discount to a trip's fare, enter a promo code anytime before a trip begins:

  1. Select Payment from your app menu.
  2. Scroll down to Promotions.
  3. Tap Add Promo Code/Gift Code.
  4. Enter the code and tap Add.

You can enter only one code before the trip. You must enter the promo code manually without copying it.

To review the promo code currently added to your account, select Payment from your app menu and tap Promotions. Each promo code will specify its expiration date and applicable areas, such as specific country or city.

When you request a trip, Uber places a temporary authorization hold for the upfront fare at the beginning of a trip.

This authorization hold currently does not include the discount applied by using some promos or credits. This is not a charge but a temporary hold that will disappear from your bank statement within a few days.

You may contact your bank to make sure that authorized amount was not charged.
