50% off Uber Premier @ Uber (Platinum & Diamond Members)

1460
Platdiamprem

For the month of December and November I've been getting 50% Uber premier, making it cheaper than UberX. I rang to find out how long the promotion was, and was told that the promo code had been applied on my account. I'm not sure that it will work at all for others, but the name suggests it might work if you're a platinum or diamond member on Uber rewards.

Confirmed working

Couple of interesting notes:
- Uber loses money on every single trip booked on this code, as their commission of 5-30% doesn't offset your discount
- You get 3x status credits on premier booking, so this is a really quick way to maintain/upgrade status (although the rewards program is pretty weak even at the diamond tier)
- there's a $50 cap on amount saved, however, you can overcome this by breaking up your trip, e.g. for my $200 trip I told the driver to stop and end the trip at the half way mark, and then I just commence a new trip. Because you are in close proximity to the driver (best to agree this with the driver beforehand in case your midpoint is somewhere without many Premiers), your next ride can begin immediately

    It says "Maximum promotional value is $50 per trip". Sorry, just trying to understand does this means that the discount is capped at $50 or the total trip should be less than $50.

    •  

      I think its 50% off, so $100 is max where you will get $50 off, for a $50 trip you'd only pay $25

      The discount cap is $50, so charges over $100 you will not be getting the discount - unless you use my method above :)

    Thanks :)

    GOOD FIND OP.
    Thanks

  •  

    Cheers Op!

    I was able to add promo code to my account.

  •  

    I don't have Uber rewards in my account. I wonder if it is because I am a driver?

    •  

      It worked for me even though I don't have Uber Rewards yet. Amazing – thanks OP!

      •  

        I found it under payments. The screenshot on ubers site shows it having its own menu.

      Have you taken a ride with the promo code yet or just saying the promo code was successfully added to your account?

      •  

        promo code was successfully added to my account, and Uber Premier shows up with reduced fare

        •  

          damn, that green promo code icon only shows up for the 10% Comfort option because apparently they "automatically pick for me" since my account has several active promo codes :(

    After adding to my Uber accont
    Under Promotions, it stated:
    Australia
    50+ trips left

    Seems there's a max redemption set for this promo
    If so, the promo might likely to run out very soon

        Thanks got it. Wish this code was permanent, they should also have 50% off for Uber Eats we use that to!

        •  

          There is actually a code floating out that that is unlimited free delivery of Ubereats… I will try to get a hold of it.

              @rave75: They have been testing different perks with various high tier loyalty members, it was just by mistake that I was able to find out the code that they use to toggle these on and off

    Worked for me on the Blue level, cheers!

      They soft launched in November, but I think they are still progressively rolling it out.

    Code applied successfully but the prices have not changed, even though there is a tab saying "50% off Black and Premier". The prices are not showing up as discounted, normally when I add promotion codes the pre-discount price is struck through and the discount price is listed below it. Is anyone else seeing something different? Could very well be because I am not a rewards member (despite it accepting the code).

  •  

    I just joined uber rewards, can confirm the code is working too. Discount is showing when I try to book a trip.

  •  

    Said it accepted the code, but prices remain the same for Premier
    Bugger

    •  

      Have you enabled rewards?

      •  

        Sorry, had a quick look and can't find the option to do so.
        Where would I do that?

  •  

    Enabled awards awhile back - code applied but no discount showing.

  •  

    Thanks OP, Scrolled down the Uber car ride options and the discount has been applied to Premier :)

    what is this "uber rewards" you speak of

  •  

    Confirmed working for me too on Blue tier :)
    Thank you!

  •  

    Wow - the first one for Uber that works!

  •  

    Put the code in under payment options but it didn't work anyone else having this issue?

  •  

    Doesn't work for me..

  •  

    Code works but discount now no longer applies, fare is full price

  •  

    Looks like it's been removed. Doesn't work

    Was working 30min ago showing 50% off Uber Premier, now it's not. The main screen still shows the offer, but the actual ride prices are back to normal.

    I suspect they've tweaked…..

    •  

      same happened to me to.

    •  

      Ah yes. Same here as well. Lol didn't even get to use it

  •  

    I am from Brisbane and tried to join Uber Rewards, Uber has put me on Waitlist. I successfully added the code, but it doesn't give me any discount.

  •  

    Yep they are onto it

  •  

    Didn’t join uber rewards, managed to add promo code but no discounted fares displayed. Thought it would apply after but no dice. Paid full price for uber premier .., sigh

    •  

      It when I applied it a week ago

      Since then they've reintroiduced it, but for Platinum and Diamonds members only.

      It looks like they've stopped it working for everyone else who applied it earlier

  •  

    Holy shit, how far were you going for $200?

  •  

    This has been auto applied to my account since Nov by default. Doesn't it get added automatically if you're platinum or diamond?

  •  

    Yeh doesn't work anymore but Uber has now given me a 10% off ONE comfort ride promo. A consolation prize for getting my hopes up?

  •  

    Ouch, code didn’t work. I spent $40 on a ride from Wynyard to Redfern

    •  

      Damn BL, I didn't realise this would happen, otherwise I would have described how the code is meant to operate (it tells you the discount amount and fare before you book)

      •  

        it's all good

  •  

    Why did Uber remove it?

    •  

      It loses them a LOT of money compared to typical discounts, which means its not beneficial to provide it to lower value customers.

  •  

    WARNING - If you were not sent this directly, despite the pop up coming up and saying you'll get the discount, it doesn't apply. I'm pursing this with them now so hopefully I can get it back.

      Any luck?
