      20% of CEOs are called Sam or John.
      None are called Jaxon, Tyson, or Rebel. Ubers toxic culture is out of control. I'm triggered.

    Anything stopping the rest of us registering a new uber account under a "Sam" name through a $2 sim and gaining? I can't recall if you have to verify Uber accounts at time of signup or whatever.

    Before I invest half an hour in this insanity, can anyone clarify; Is this $20 credit per day? ie, "Sam"could take 2 x $7.50 trips per day, for free?

    •  

      How many rides do I get?

      If eligible, you’ll receive 1 ride a day up to $20 from 21st to 27th August 2017.

    Hello, my name is Sam-Dyl Ozbargain.

  •  

    I'm going to deed poll this week.

  •  

    Is this just as simple as updating your name?

    •  

      Grab a wollies sim card now, register tonight before midnight?
      Edit: Uber have been known to steal money from your account even if they've given you a $0 receipt.
      Took my nearly a week of calling up and sooking/threatening to get my refund. Some ozbargainers had to resort to a chargeback.
      So I'd go with a new account, to be safe.

      •  

        Second that comment about Uber debiting your account when the trip should be free. In my experience their support were less than helpful in rectifying the issue (with basically no response received).

  •  

    Has any Sam received a confirmation that they have been enrolled in the deal? After registering on the website it said:

    Thanks for registering
    We will be in touch on Sunday 20th August to confirm your registration.

    •  

      Nope. Haven't received anything. I was planning to catch uber to work this morning.

    •  

      Not yet. Hopefully, I get $20 off from my ride this afternoon.

    •  

      Got the email now.

      •  

        What does it say? I haven't received anything yet

        •  

          Your Free Rides Week starts tomorrow! You will receive a free $20 ride every day from 21 - 27 August 2017. Ride credits are automatically applied to your account.

    •  

      Turns out my enrolment didn't work, but I contacted their support on Facebook and they fixed it up for me.

  • +1 vote

    My Sam* got no confirmation. He didn't explicitly enroll, other than creating an account.
    I caught an uber today and it was free. $0 on the email receipt with a mention of the promo.
    Free trips to work all week, thanks OP!

    •  

      "Your" Sam?

      Do you mean you made a new account…. lol

  • +1 vote

    hmm I feel like the "Expired" tag for this is a little misleading..

    Yes enrolment has expired but the actual promo doesn't end until 27 Aug

    •  

      Sam and I agree. The Amex deals aren't marked as 'expired' when enrolments are full for example.
