UBER is providing FREE rides today (Wednesday 7th May 2014), between 7am and 9pm, as they participate in making the country’s voting process more convenient in their own special way! The BEST part about this whole campaign is that it isn’t just exclusive to new users, it’s available for existing clients too.
So whether you’re a new or existing UBER user, you can enter the promotion code: VOTESA to redeem two free rides, each up to R200 in value. If you’re a new user, sign up at uber.com/app/VOTESA.
This campaign comes just ten months after UBER first expanded into Africa, starting with its successful August 2013 launch in Johannesburg. This just proves that UBER is well and truly committed to our market.
The Head of UBER in Africa and the Middle East, Jambu Palaniappan, says, “At UBER, we are incredibly passionate about helping people move around the cities that they live in. We have received a warm welcome in South Africa, and are very excited about current operations in Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Durban. On May 7th, we’d like to give back by making it easier for people to go out and vote. We’d also encourage all of our users to take an elderly friend or family member with them to the polls, so that everyone has their chance to be heard.”
Awesome company. I genuinely don’t mind showing support to a company that every now and again does something special for their users.
