You’ve likely heard the word buzzing on the street: Lyft is taking over Las Vegas! Well, maybe not the entire city, but Lyft is taking the Strip to a new level this year at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

Every year, CES showcases the latest and greatest in technology, and what’s in store for the year ahead. So we wanted to show you what to look forward to in 2018 – and a key area we’re excited about is self-driving vehicles and the future of transportation.

We’re committed to changing transportation to better our cities. And as we embark on this journey of redefining our cities around people instead of cars, we want you to come along for a ride into the future.

Come see what we’re up to at CES.

Lyft Self-Driving Pilot With Aptiv

Take a self-driving ride with Lyft while you’re hopping from panels at the Convention Center, to dinner with friends, to parties at The Cosmopolitan. Last week, Lyft announced its partnership with Aptiv to bring Aptiv’s self-driving vehicles to the Lyft network in Las Vegas. During the week of CES, if you’re at the Las Vegas Convention Center, you will be able to request a self-driving Lyft ride, powered by our partner Aptiv. You’ll make history as one of the first passengers to experience a Lyft self-driving ride!

5 Ridiculously Easy Holiday Recipes from the Driver Community

This post is part of our #ReclaimTheHolidays series. Read the first post.

The party’s in a few hours, and you still haven’t figured out what to make for dessert. But don’t rush out to grab a plate of stale supermarket cookies just yet!

We asked Lyft drivers across the country for their favorite holiday recipes to make in a pinch. Cooks, bakers, and foodies spilled their expert knowledge, and we gathered up the best responses below. Now you can spend less time stressing about cooking and entertaining, and more time enjoying each other’s company – and food comas.

1. Chocolate Pretzel Treats

Nastassia in Dallas describes herself as a “lazy baker” (aren’t we all?), which is why she loves this 3-ingredient dessert. “This is my favorite quick treat for all of those holiday party needs. They’re delicious and only take a few minutes to bake!” Grab pretzels, Hershey’s Kisses, and M&Ms, and voilà. See the full recipe.

2. Andes Mint Cookies

Each holiday season, Krystal in Phoenix bakes several different kinds of cookies, but without fail, “these are always the family’s favorite!” She recommends bringing them to your next holiday dinner for a unique twist on the typical chocolate chip cookie. See the full recipe.

3. 2-Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Cookies

It doesn’t get much easier – or tastier – than this. Kristen, a musician in Nashville, bakes batches of these each year to put in goodie bags, and she says they’re always a hit. To make: “Mix a box of spice cake mix with 8-12 oz of canned pumpkin – use 12 for more moist, fluffy cookies. Use a tablespoon to drop the dough on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-14 minutes. Glazing cookies is totally optional! They’re sweet without any added frosting or glaze.”

4. No-Bake Energy Bites

As a personal trainer, Whitney tries to stay healthy during the holidays. If you’re trying to do the same, she recommends whipping up a batch of these no-bake energy bites. “They’re healthy but don’t taste like it! I like them because they’re quick and combat cravings.” See the full recipe.

5. Fancy Hot Chocolate

Donnell in Baltimore has the recipe for the perfect festive beverage: “Everyone loves this creamy, decadent hot chocolate. I mix unsweetened milk chocolate, unsweetened white chocolate, a splash of eggnog, cinnamon, brown sugar, and marshmallows.”

7 Fatal Uber Error Messages Explained

Are you frantically googling to find out why a Uber promo code that is supposed to earn you a free ride isn’t working?

Uber error messages can be difficult to understand when based on the error message alone.

You may be getting a general error because of a single digit mistake, or the promo code really isn’t working.

Whatever the case, you have come to the right place.

We will help you demystify the common Uber promo code error messages so you can understand where the problem could be.

What Types of Error Messages Could I See?

There are three different Uber promo code error messages you are likely to encounter when you try to redeem free ride credits.

uber-error-messages

The two most common error messages are “Another promotion was already applied” and “Expired Uber promotion codes”.

Another Promotion Was Already Applied

If you encounter the message “Another Promotion Was Already Applied” when trying to enter an Uber promo code, it means that you are trying to redeem free ride credits on an existing account that already received the free first ride.

Riders with existing accounts see this message because Uber allows each account to receive only one Uber promo code from their Refer-a-Friend program.

Simply put, you cannot use an invitation code twice or use a second different code after you are invited by someone else.

Expired Uber Promotion Codes

This error message is pretty self-explanatory.

Uber promotion codes are often valid for a limited time after which they expire.

When you try to enter an expired promo code, this is the error message you get.

Note that once a promo code expires, Uber cannot extend or renew it-it will be gone forever.

You can keep track of your codes’ expiration dates right on the app.

Tap on ‘Menu’ then select ‘Promotions’ to view the details of all the active promo codes applied to your account.

Referral Codes Have Been Deemed Invalid for This Account

A very uncommon error, when you encounter “Referral Codes Have Been Deemed Invalid for This Account” when you enter an Uber promo code, it could mean that there is a problem with your Uber account.

If you are a new user and you get this error on your first ride even after checking to ensure you entered the code correctly, you may want to review the status of your account if it is active.

The best solution is to send an email to the Uber support team to resolve this error.

Error Message When Creating an Account

Quite a number of Internet users have reported encountering the error message “There was a problem signing up, please try again” when attempting to create a new account.

This could happen for many reasons but the most likely is a temporary server or connection problem.

Some users have had this problem with specific email address domain names.

It is recommended that you try again in a short while but if it persists you can try a different email address or contact Uber support team via email or on Twitter.

Other Error Messages

As with many things within technology, there are errors that come up even with the most routine tasks.

There isn’t too much variety when it comes to Uber error messages, but there are a few worth mentioning.

So frustrating!

Error messages are always stressful, but it’s not as bad when you know how to fix it.

Take a peek at some other Uber error messages you may encounter in your rideshare adventures.

Error Adding a Payment Method

If you try to enter a prepaid card as a payment method on your Uber account, you will encounter this error message because the company currently does not accept prepaid cards.

You will also see this error or “There Was an Error Processing Your Payment Method” when you enter a credit card CVV number or your billing zip code incorrectly.

Because Uber charges your default payment method in case the ride costs more than available credit, you may not be able to request a ride until you resolve the payment error if none other is active.

The solution to this error depends on the where the problem is.

You may need to contact your bank or financial institution if the method is valid but cannot be added.

Unable to Change Mobile Number or Email

Every Uber account must have associated and verified email address and phone number to request a ride.

If you try to update your phone number or email, you are likely to get this error if the number or address you are trying to change to is already registered by someone else.

In such a case, you will have to contact Uber support team to get your number or email address released.

You may be asked to send your ID and/or a screenshot of the phone number before the change is affected.

How Do Uber Promo Codes Work?

So, how exactly do these uber promo codes work?

Maybe you’re looking to score a free ride with Uber or use the credit for a later time.

The best, and possibly the only, chance you have is to redeem an Uber promo code.

how do uber promo codes work exactly?

Tell me more!

Promo codes, also called credit, coupon, referral, or discount codes are special codes that Uber customers can redeem to get free and discounted rides.

These codes are available here exclusively and can be redeemed for up to $15 off the fare price depending on the city.

Using Uber Credit for More Than One Ride

Uber promo codes are one-time use only, meaning that you cannot use a code you have already used in a different ride.

Also…

This also means that if the ride you redeem the promo code on does not use up all the credit, you cannot carry the balance over to your next ride.

Pro Tip:  Most promotions are only available to new customers. However, there still are ways to get additional free ride credit by referring your friends.

Using an Uber Free Ride for More Than One Person

While the free Uber ride promo code cannot be used on multiple rides…

It can be used to offer free rides to multiple passengers on the same ride.

Taking an Uber with friends?

You can use the free ride credit to pay for as many of them as it can, but you can only redeem the code for the one ride only.

Where to Use an Uber Coupon

Most Uber promo codes you will come across are for new customers taking their first Uber ride.

The code only works if the passenger has never requested an Uber ride from their account before.

Good news!

It doesn’t matter where you are.

It will work on all Uber services in all areas that Uber operates.

This code can only be used once and only one code can be used per ride.

New User Uber Codes

If you are indeed interested in trying Uber, you’re in the right place.

new user uber code

We’ve compiled a list of the best Uber promo codes out there.

All of our Uber codes are verified and accurate.

Promo Codes Credit Amount Expiration Date
FLY One ride up to $15 01/01/2017
RIDENEWS One ride up to $15 01/01/2017
CLASSY One ride up to $15 01/01/2017
RIDEAPPS One ride up to $15 01/01/2017
SOAR One ride up to $15 01/01/2017
RIDESHARE One ride up to $15 01/01/2017

Check our comprehensive guide to Uber promotions for more information and a complete list of all available codes.

Credit from Referring a Friend

Existing Uber users have only two ways to get free rides through Uber promo codes.

They can get special codes for special promotional events that Uber occasionally publishes.

Or…

They can refer a new user to the service.

If you are an existing user, you can share your own promo code right from the app.

When a someone downloads the app by clicking your referral link or inputs your code, both you and the new member will get a free ride.

Current Referral Bonus

You receive $20 worth of Uber credit code for each new friend that you refer to Uber.

The amount is credited to your account when the new user takes their first ride.

New users can really rake in the savings here.

How?

They also get a complimentary $20 Uber promo credit when they create an account on the Uber app and use an Uber promo code.

Saving the New User Uber Credit

Want to take an Uber but don’t want to use your credit yet?

save your new user uber credit for later

No worries.

You can reserve it for later use on the app.

You can toggle Apply Credits ON or OFF to change the payment method before or during the trip.

This is particularly useful if you would rather not waste too much credit on a short ride.

Rides Costing More Than the Credit

If your ride costs more than the Uber credit available on the app, your default payment method will be used to offset the balance.

For instance…

If the ride costs $30 and you only have $20 worth of credit, the default payment method will be charged $10.

The available Uber credit is automatically applied first when the account is charged.

Any balance after the credit is used up is charged to the default payment method.

Changing Your Payment Method

One of the best things about Uber is that you can change how you wish to pay before or during the trip.

This, however, does not apply to promo codes which you MUST enter before requesting a ride.

Simply tap the green credit box to view your current payments profile.

Next…

Select the payment method you would prefer used for the current and next trip.

Also, take note.

The payment method you select will be charged the difference if the available Uber credit cannot cover the entire cost of the trip.

Types of Rides Offered with an Uber Coupon Code

The new user Uber coupon code only works for passengers who have never requested an Uber ride from their account yet.

A new user can use the code in any country or city that Uber operates in.

Types of Uber Cars

Uber offers many different services represented by different types of cars. They include:

They include:

1) UberBLACK (Black car) – This is an executive or ‘luxury’ service offered by black luxury sedans or SUVs.

These cars charge the highest fare prices but they are commercial registered and insured luxury cars.

2) UberSELECT – A luxury sedan, often a BMW, Mercedes, Audi, or some other high-end vehicle that can seat up to 4 riders.

They feature leather interiors and may be referred to as UberPlus in some markets.

3) UberXL – When you request an UberXL, expect a minivan or SUV that accommodates up to 6 riders.

4) UberX – The least expensive and most popular Uber service, the UberX is typically an everyday car that can seat up to 4 riders.

5) UberTAXI – This requests an everyday taxi with an agreement with Uber.

This means you get a traditional taxi ride but get to pay via the Uber app.

6) UberPOOL – This is a carpool option, driven by an Uber driver.

Basically, you share the ride with someone headed in the same direction and split the cost.

Uber Fare Estimate & Price Rates 2016 Guide

Are you looking for a way to calculate your ride with an Uber fare estimate?

Uber is leading the pack for ridesharing services, and there are a few very good reasons for this.

Uber was the first on the scene in the ridesharing niche, and that has given the company a huge advantage.

There are resources to help Uber drivers and passengers get acquainted with the service.

uber-fare-estimate

The safety measures embedded in the service also contributes to its popularity and mounting success.

Uber has carved out a dominant slice of the ridesharing pie.

Below are a few resources passengers and drivers alike can take advantage of to get the most out of the leading rideshare service.

Uber has been taking the taxi cab companies by storm with their innovative take on technology and transportation.

Uber Service Options

Uber is considered one resource, but it comes in a few colors or versions.

There is the main service, which everything branches from.

The main service is a car and the standard rate.

There are four additional variations in particular that define the Uber experience.

UberX

UberX is a low-cost alternative to the classic Uber experience.

Passengers can expect a lower rate in exchange for their expected continual patronage.

There are no contracts involved, but UberX is encouraged as a service for repeat customers.

As for drivers, the vehicle must be new (the Terms of Service detail 2005 or newer, but it varies by city).

The service allows up to four passengers.

In some cities, UberX is the same as the classic default Uber service.

Specifically, the city does not have a designation separating the classic service from uberX.

UberSUV

UberSUV has all the standards and expectations of the other Uber variations, including the car’s age.

The difference is, of course, the UberSUV service allows more passengers and includes more room in the SUV.

UberBLACK

UberBLACK is a business professional service.

Passengers can expect superior service and professionalism.

The service will provide a luxury vehicle, and drivers are held to a specific dress code.

UberPOP

UberPOP is the European version of UberX, and it carries the same features of its U.S. counterpart.

There are few other variations that are less used.

Uber is clearly dissecting their overall service to fulfill different needs, unlike other competing rideshare brands.

It is a worthwhile strategy that is perpetuating Uber’s growth.

Customers are Getting an Uber Fare Estimate

Uber passengers are not left to guess the cost of their ride.

The Uber Fare Estimator is a popular resource for receiving an Uber Quote.

Users simply input their pick-up location and destination.

The Uber Rates will be provided based on the current data.

It looks at surges, which are times where high-demand increases the price.

There are surge tiers, usually from “times two” to “times four” that multiply the base rate.

A traditional ride will be about $1 per two miles.

Passengers can benefit from an Uber Estimate beforehand to determine the amount of a tip, if necessary.

They can also assess their weekly travel expenses while on vacation or assess the cost of using Uber for an extended period of time.

The best thing yet is that the prices have recently been cut.

Drivers are getting paid less per ride, but that is a blessing in disguise.

Passengers pay less.

Passengers request more rides.

Uber is growing fast, and they are knocking on the front doors of cities that previously denied them access.
