If you need more incentive to get the new flagship devices from Samsung, and if you’re desperate for a free ride in a nice car, this might push you to get one of the new smartphones when it’s released this week. Samsung and Uber have created a partnership that will offer new owners of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge an e-voucher that can give you one free Uber ride, and also offer discounts in other countries later on.
Of course you would need to install the Uber app on your brand new device, which is basically what the car service is hoping for to establish their dominance in the market. The one-time free ride is valued at $25 and can be used not just by the new owners of the new gadgets, but even for owners of the Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge. You need to go to the Galaxy Gifts section of your device, download the Uber app and then sign up. The $25 discount will be automatically added to your Uber account and will be deducted from your ride.
With Uber present in 300 cities cross 56 countries, despite several controversies facing them, business is booming but they would like to push their services even more, particularly in Asia. The partnership with Samsung is their way of getting people who’ve never tried their service before to check it out for free and hopefully, they would like what they experienced.
Oh, yes, the only caveat for this promo is that it only applies to new Uber users. So if you already have an account with them, sorry, but you’d have to pay for your ride. At least you have a brand new Galaxy S6 or S6 edge with you, so you can still ride in style, sort of.
