Free TAXI Week! - How to Order
As we announced this morning, it’s FREE TAXI Week with Uber. It’s simple, all TAXIs requested through the Uber app are free, automatically, up to $20, through 11:59pm on Wednesday. It’s awesome and we’re pumped about it!
However, we do realize there was a bit of confusion given that Uber has the OPTION to either select a black car or a TAXI within the app. To be clear it is *only* the TAXI rides that are free this week, though of course the black car rides are still available at normal pricing.
To address this confusion, we have added the above app intro screen, which you will see the first time you open your app. This screen describes the two different cars available through the Uber app. Please note that you will need to select the TAXI button (right side of the picker) to request a TAXI. If you don’t see TAXI icons on the map, the ride will *not* be FREE.
Enjoy FREE TAXI Week! We’re excited to bring it to you for two more days, but please also take a moment to carefully select the car type you want from the picker.
Have friends you want to tell about FREE TAXI Week? Personalize and share your invite code!

#UltimateChiDinner @ Tavernita
One of the greatest things I’ve tasted in Chicago recently, is the Booty Collins kegged cocktail at Tavernita. If you haven’t tasted it, it’s like a burst of energy, pleasure, and refreshness in a glass (no idea if that makes sense).
So what’s better than some delicious tapas and a Booty Collins? An Uber ride of course! Use the hashtag #UltimateChiDinner this week for a chance at dinner for two at Tavernita, and an Uber ride to and from. Must be following @Uber_CHI & @Tavernita to win. Happy Eating Chicago!
PS. Tavernita will be offering all Uber clients 15% off their bill (Sun-Thurs) when you show your Uber app. RUN don’t walk to Tavernita now!

The United Center’s Un-Official Driver
Want the ultimate Bulls or Blackhawks experience this winter? When leaving the United Center, the best transportation home is Uber.
Set your pickup location anywhere around the stadium. Depending on where you set your pickup, you’ll be able to jump in a warm car, and zip away from the crowds.
Traveling with more than four? Invite friends to make a request too! For every friend you invite to Uber, they receive $10 in credit, and you receive $10 after they ride. It’s a win-win when you need multiple vehicles.. and the way our favorite teams have been playing, probably a win-win-win.
Here’s to a Stanley Cup and NBA Championship! Hey.. a man can dream…
