The best app inventions ever for the smartphones might just go to the ones that hail a cab, black car, or help carpool. These highly convenient start-ups are offering bonus credits for first-time users. If you live in a big city where they offer more than one of these services than you can get tons of free rides. Here are some promo codes to get a ride on demand in the United States and abroad:
Uber $15 – Hail-a-driver, taxi, black car, minivan, and more with your smartphone. Lots of cities. Get $15 off your first ride via this special link or promo code uberVIP4ME. UberX involves individuals driving their personal cars. The Uber Select or Black Cars are professionals. This was the first app that I used to call up a black car when it first started in San Francisco then it took awhile but it grew to Dallas and NYC and now it’s a brand all over the world. To get another $20 credit with Uber read here about their latest promotion with Facebook.
Lyft $50 – It started out as a on-demand service where you could get a car to pick you up in a pink-mustached by a private individual in their private car. Now the mustaches are not as big (mainly stickers on the side) to recognize the car. They are basically the same as UberX but not in as many cities. They are also normally more personal and cheaper! Get $50 off your first rides with promo code DJ462. If you live in a city where they are just starting out, you may also get a bunch of additional free rides for being a “Pioneer” of the app.
Curb $10 – Offering Up to $10 in Free Taxi Rides! Nation’s largest on-demand Taxi app.
Wingz Black Car $10 – Black car on-demand service who recently joined forces with TripIt to help planning even more convenient. No surge, Fixed prices to and from Portland International Airport (PDX), Denver International Airport (DEN), Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), and more. Wingz is definitely cheaper than cabs and more convenient than the hassles of buses and shuttles serving these three airports.
