Save up to 50% When You Share a Ride With UberPOOL

UberPOOL lets you share a ride with folks going in the same direction.

And instead of riding in silence, you can enjoy Spotify music while taking an Uber ride in:

  • London
  • Los Angeles
  • Mexico City
  • Nashville
  • New York
  • San Francisco
  • Singapore
  • Stockholm

Spotify is a free service that lets you listen to music on your computer, tablet or phone.  You can upgrade your free account to Spotify Premium which lets you listen to songs without being connected to the internet.

You have to connect your Spotify Premium account in your Uber profile.

I hope my next Uber driver appreciates classical music!

Agreed it seems as though physical gift cards do not incur the $6 shipping fee any more. Does anyone know if the eGifts will receive the additional 5% Open Savings or if the processing goes through a third-party.

Good to know. Thanks, @Yo!

Yes the purchase with the Hyatt card will give you 3 points per dollar, several reports on flyertalk forums

No can do. I’ll be in Amsterdam that day already and staying at an undisclosed Park Hyatt. BUT awesome contest.

Oops, just noticed the post was already referring to the eGift cards! I guess my “discovery” wasn’t much of one.
