It’s the most wonderful time of the year here at Uber! That’s why we’re introducing a suite of holiday-themed products, features, and offerings to help you go anywhere, get anything, and celebrate together this season.
Throughout the month of December, the below experiences will be bookable and shoppable exclusively in the Uber and Uber Eats apps. We hope you enjoy them with friends, family and loved ones!
Ride into the holiday season in style. This month, we’re offering party goers who book an Uber Charter the opportunity to experience our festive fleet of decked out buses complete with karaoke, holiday lights, photo props and more. These karaoke coaches will be available in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago and Washington, D.C. And riders across the U.S. can enjoy 10% off any Uber Charter bookings made from December 5-17 with promo code “FESTIVE10”.*
The Gift Hub & Celebrity Collections
Meet the one-stop-shop for all of your gifting needs. The Gift Hub in the Uber Eats app will make it easier than ever to filter, find and send the perfect gift – especially for the 58% of folks who wait until December to finish their shopping. From flowers and bubbly to sweets, treats and holiday decor, there is something for everyone. And if you’re looking for inspiration, search no farther than our celebrity-curated collections – featuring top picks from The Summer I Turned Pretty‘s Christopher Briney, and The Real Housewives of New York’s Luann de Lesseps – who released a holiday remake of her hit song “Money Can’t Buy You Class” this holiday season.
A Very Grinchmas Kit
Whether you’ve been naughty or nice, Uber One members will have the chance to grow their hearts three sizes! We’ve teamed up with Dr. Seuss to create A Very Grinchmas Kit, complete with a gingerbread version of Cindy-Lou’s Who-ville House to build, delicious cookies of familiar characters, a Who-inspired hot cocoa recipe, and an augmented reality experience that’ll take you on a journey to the top of Mt. Crumpit. Available exclusively to members, kits will become available on December 12 in the Uber Eats app, just in time for the Who-lidays, for $49.99, with $0 Delivery Fee as always.
Let Uber be your Secret Santa this year. We know that 80% of consumers say they want same day shipping, and 61% want their items within 1-3 hours of ordering. With Store Pickup via Uber Connect, you can arrange for an Uber courier to pick up and deliver prepaid items for you. Once you’ve purchased items from a local store, simply upload the receipt and watch as a courier drops off those items wherever you’d like – with you, or with a loved one. Store Pickup is live now across 1,700 U.S. cities and towns, including Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Orange County, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Antonio, San Francisco, and Tampa Bay, with rollout continuing.
If you’re in Los Angeles, Miami or Fairfax, VA, keep your eyes peeled for our Robot Reindeer, who will be delivering food for the month of December. Just order Uber Eats for the chance to meet – you won’t want to miss them!
Free Package Returns
Returning those unwanted gifts is easier than ever this season. With Package Returns via Uber Connect, a courier will pick up as many as five prepaid and sealed packages and take them to a post office, UPS or FedEx store. And this year, Uber One Members will get to enjoy free package returns through the first week of January 2024. Not an Uber One Member? It’s a $5 flat fee. Tracking packages in real-time is easy in the app, and you’ll get a visual confirmation or photo of the receipt when the drop-off is completed. Package Returns is available in more than 3,800+ cities.**
Reserve Your Airport Pickup
We know our customers travel a ton towards the end of the year, with airport trips to beach and mountain destinations spiking significantly. That’s why this December, we’re expanding Reserve at Airports for UberX, UberXL, and Uber Comfort to 32 additional airports across the U.S. and Canada. With flight tracking built in, we’ll automatically adjust your reservation time based on the flight information you provide. Plus, If you aren’t ready to ride the moment you touch down, don’t stress – you have up to 45 minutes from the time you land.

Promo code ‘FESTIVE10’ is only applicable to up to three new bookings made between December 5-17, and cannot be combined with other promotional codes.
