Make it an endless summer with free uberX rides during #BKLOVESuberX!

August 22, 2013 / New York City

[welcome subtitle=”BROOKLYN, YOUR FREE uberX IS ARRIVING NOW”][/welcome]
Summer is winding down, but we’re not ready to let it go quite yet. While we can’t take you on a surf trip around the world, we can make it easier (and cheaper) to squeeze some delicious drinks, eats, and fun into these warm waning days right here in NYC.

This weekend, take FREE uberX rides* to, from, or between neighborhoods in Brooklyn. We’ve partnered with over 40 of our favorite local BK businesses, who will be dishing out awesome deals just for uberX riders. While exploring the borough, snap shots of your exploits and share with #BKLOVESuberX.

Use promo code:


for a free uberX round trip to, from OR around Brooklyn*

Show your uberX receipt at BK LOVES uberX participating businesses to access deals all around Brooklyn – the receipt must be for a trip ending in Brooklyn, and one receipt gives access to deals for one rider. We know it’s fun to do things with friends, so have them sign up and ride with Uber in order to get a group of friends in on the action! Plan your weekend around neighborhoods, or hop to and from your favorite spots. Whatever you decide, you’re in store for lots of FREE fun! Scroll down for details at each of our awesome partner businesses:

[h3 class=”” span=”WHAT IS uberX”][/h3]

uberX is our low-cost option, combining the same great Uber quality and TLC licensed drivers you’re used to at near-taxi prices. On uberX you’ll find a mix of hybrid and mid-range cars—such as the Prius and Toyota Camry—in a variety of colors, with seating for up to four people.

[h3 class=”” span=” HOW DOES IT WORK”][/h3]

  • Enter promo code BKLOVESuberX in the Uber app.
  • Slide the car type selector to ‘uberX’ – this promotion does not apply to uberTAXI, UberBLACK, or UberSUV.
  • Take up to two rides between noon on Friday (8/23) through 11:59PM on Sunday (8/25).
  • BKLOVESuberX covers rides beginning OR ending in Brooklyn up to $20. Believe us – at these rates, $20 will get you far.

*Up to $20 off. Up to 2 rides. Rides must begin OR end in Brooklyn.

In Brookyn, street art, spectacular views, culture, and style are never in short supply – but uberX may be! We’re expecting high demand for free uberX, so we appreciate your patience.
