Was looking for a promo code for my new account and found this discount code on their website.
$10-$15 credit for both referrer and referee. Cannot be stacked with new user signup codes.
EATSAU2104 for $30 off
Any minimum spend?
Im not eligible :(
Key to being eligible is to make a new account then wait a while before ordering. Works for me made at least 10 accounts this year with 30 off.
ahk i only created it a week ago, might hold off if i can resist lol
So you need to use different payment method every time or does not matter? For me the code just disappears if we use the same payment method.
@notyou: Different payment, different phone number, email , and even different phone or PC if used normal browser or app. Tor browser or incognito on desktop with prepaid mobile and Visa gift cards is the go. That being said Westpac have $20 cashback as well. So combine for $50 off. I hate Uber …go nuts.
@tunzafun001: How do you have so many numbers?
@No Child Support: I use cheap prepaid offers in an old phone with hotspot as my wifi.
@tunzafun001: Woah that is next level OzBargaining
Yeah this is a better code…
if it works for you…
i think you have to be a new user for that one - creating a new account but using the same payment method can sometimes stuff it up as i've learned in the past
Doesn't work on my new account with new email. Maybe targeted~
Thanks OP made new account and it worked. got the family deal at subway $50 free delivery and $20 off and $30 Westpac extras offer all for only $10
good to hear mate! wish I had the westpac offer in my account
Looks targeted. Doesn't work on a new account either.
try PMAU think that was another one
This is a hack to get unlimited new uber-eats accounts. This then allows you to redeem unlimited referrals/new customer discount codes. Currently Uber-Eats is advertising $20 off for new customers with code 'PMAU2021'.
Won't you then just have a stack of unused numbers?
Which you can sell for profit when Optus runs out of numbers
And get watchlisted by the gov for opening so many mobile numbers
guess im on that watchlist lol…
I'm sure its easy to pick up abusers :)
I didn't know AFP now do delivery too.
ive secretly been doing this on DoorDash
Not secretly anymore
There were reports in the last thread that this didn't work - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/620454
Anyway, this just seems a repost of the last thread but with a way to get a $1 sim.
Ugh i did that with Optus Flex sims. and now i keep getting messages about mobile number connections and disconnections.
checked and app, and had so many numbers listed under my name.
note that these were never activated, but used the 1111 credit card trick to get sms's through
How does that credit card trick work?
enter incorrect credit card number (4747 4747 4747 4747) 3 times and activation process lets you go ahead without charging your card. can get sms for 24hours only.
doesnt have to be the 4747 number i guess.
the $1 plan, you have to cancel it everyday?
I did this a few years ago and now any card associated with my name, my name and address on the account gets an uber account banned. I cannot use uber/ubereats anymore.
Any time I create a new account, whether it's on a different IP, different name, email, number and card, results in the account being banned within a few days if not instantly.
Would not recommend this.
if Uber is so importang guess you have to change your name lol..but agree they are f strict …
Ended up just using doordash / didi (glad they picked up traction and got more restaurants/became effective alternatives)
@Skrizzy: Was banned from Doordash. Not risking it for Uber Eats haha
The easy solution is to move house and get new credit cards
I joined a witness protection program. I haven't seen my loved ones I over 2 years. Still worth it.
@peterpeterpumpkin: kfc and maccas are my loved ones
Great idea will try it tomorrow
E Sim enabled phone. I need a deal for the phone first
Ah yes, a guide for fraud.
Why is it fraud when the little guy takes advantage of schemes but legal and acceptable when billion dollar companies profit shift to avoid tax?
$19 here vs billions taken out of the economy by big business meaning less money for hospitals/health, education and services.
Because this is against the T&C's of Uber and Optus.
Minimising tax using strategies that do not break the law is legal.
@spaceflight: well breaking the T&C is not illegal either.
T&C isnt law.
I can't see how this is any different from using the spoof location hack using the 7-11 fuel lock.
@FreeAFBoi: welll its kinda different because uber is losing money
7-11 not really losing money cuz the petrol price is still not free or below their cost.
Do the ends justify the means? If you are truly moved by international tax structuring and suspect criminal violations, then you should be working at the ATO instead of defrauding companies for $19 coupons (multiplied by how many times you abuse this).
FYI definition of fraud: "wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain."
@AfterDeals: There is nothing wrongful or criminal by utilising a promo code albeit multiple times. Its not a law.
I suggest educating yourself about the world some more.
The 0.1% of those who are smart enough to exploit it won’t affect a company of this size. If it were a serious issue they would stop it. The cost to impose stricter checks would inadvertedly impact their sales due to genuine user registration frustrations. So ultimately in the end these promo code deals generate more profits for them rather than not having them at all to stop people “abusing” them.
Meanwhile your ignoring how Uber abuses its employees through underpaying them, thats the bigger issue.
Besides, your just salty because you can’t hack uber.
@dom03: They do have checks in place, which is why after a few times you will be flagged by their anti-fraud provider, as other users have commented. Once you have been flagged, it is hard to appeal and use any future Uber service, e.g. in-app car rental once they have launched that feature in Aus.
It is against the law to defraud companies, but they won't chase after you until you are worth chasing after (think legal costs). The balance between imposing strict friction for new signups for anti-fraud versus stunting growth metrics is ever-changing for tech companies, which is why you may be able to get away with this a few times before they catch on.
I am not ignoring Uber's employment disputes, but that is not what this post is about. I suggest you start a new forum thread if you actually want to have a conversation about contractor vs part-time employee for sharing economy companies.
The guide on how to 'hack' Uber was quite literally posted. I choose not to abuse it because I am not like you and every other internet script kiddie ;-)
@AfterDeals: I never said they didn’t have checks in place? They clearly do otherwise why would people be bypassing them… right?
You won’t currently be flagged or impact your real account if your using hacks for reusing promo codes (provided you use fresh info and IP).
If your suggesting I start a new forum for employment abuse because you feel your losing your moral argument about whether people should be using promo codes for free food then I would say the same about you bringing about false allegations that this is defrauding Uber when it clearly isn’t, like I and others have already stated it’s not the law and breaking T&C does not always mean it’s illegal unless it’s unlawful in which case it isn’t.
Don’t lie and state your choosing not to use it, when you clearly are and you are a hypocrite looking for attention on ozbargain.
You wouldn’t be in this post for a free promo code and hack if you weren’t and you certainly wouldn’t be on ozbargain wasting your energy looking to save a dollar on bargains if you were the type not to abuse a promo code.
Your fooling nobody but yourself here.
@dom03: Do you think these coupons are free money that comes out of thin air? Someone has to pay the bill. Your logic is that because they have employment disputes, which is categorically a different conversation, it's okay to exploit and abuse this. Remember, you were the one who said "it's called taking advantage of people for greed and personal gain. This is the wrong mentality and goes against the ideology of a good human race." (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/comment/9143148/redir)
Your real account won't get flagged if you take evasive methods like spoofing device info, providing false identity credentials, cycling through virtual payment methods - of course, this is a given! But if you are doing this much work to get a free coupon, I'd suggest using these efforts to contribute to society instead.
But if you use the method posted, which is just cycling E-SIMs, then you will 100% get flagged for fraud by Uber's provider, as the other user's have already shared. There's a reason Uber has these checks in place and it's to prevent fraud for their coupon system. It's the same reason you can't brute-force to test every combination of alphanumeric letters on their "Enter Promo Code" page.
I really couldn't care less about 'attention' on OzBargain, and to assume why people use this site is pretty ignorant. But if it helps you sleep at night, who am I to tell you otherwise? ;-)
@AfterDeals: When did I say I am using eSims? Why are you concerned for me.
Your clearly fried, your like an ex-gf who stalks people to get info and then turn it against them, see a psycologist mate.
You lost the argument a long time ago buddy and you cannot dig yourself out of a hole this big.
Your posting about how your a saint yet a registered member of a website and forum called Ozbargain LOL!
You’ve embaressed yourself enough and I am done replying to someone who is in denial.
Find a new hobby and get attention from someone else, maybe step outside its a nice day.
Edit: i’m munching my free uber while I pretend to care what you have to say.
I've done this before when there were many sim card cash back promotions. It stopped working after 2 attempts (2 sim cards), though my primary account is not banned.
New SIM and new user offer? This isn't a bargain and will likely cause issues.
I think uber doesn't accept new prepaid cards anymore? so even getting a new number would not work?
They don't accept VOIP numbers, but they do accept prepaid.
oops I mean prepaid credit card - sorry.
Uber seems to be more sophisticated with detecting new account abuse.
New phone numbers and credit card numbers are great, but at some point they start detecting new account abuse based on multiple factors, IP, device ID, etc. You need a pretty sophisticated setup up to keep getting around it.
If you figure out how, it's great for ride share too.
They caught onto me, didn't ban me but everytime I applied new account coupon they'd remove it on my new accounts making it pretty much useless.
This was using new cards, even new names and phone numbers. Gave up and consistently use the uber eats free delivery hack now…
what type of new cards (credit card) do you use?
ANZ, Bankwest, Macquarie, St George.
All detected.. probably cause most of them in my name. Then I even used my mums. Not sure what was flagging up…
@R3XNebular: very interesting - thanks.
was thinking if anyone tried the prepaid credit cards sold in woolies or Coles - that won't have a name attached…
@R3XNebular: Browser or iOS/Android app?
@NoGiveJustTake: Tried all three Browser, Android (my s10+) and iOS (kids iPad). Gave up….
Try using browser next time. No way of tracking there. Obviously use different IP, address etc.
@NoGiveJustTake: Tried also, have Nord VPN from cashrewards deal. icognito browser too…
@NoGiveJustTake: by right, they should not be able to track device ID - it's almost similar to how they want to use it for advertisement purposes.
and I believe that factory reseting a phone should wipe the device id too (assuming legitimate 2nd hand sales to another person)
so by right - there should not be able to use device id tracking - else there would be too much false positives…
the same goes with IP - if you're using mobile data, your IP is the same with other mobile users because it is using CGNAT. Banning an IP that wide would mean everyone else is affected too..
This is genius for signing up to all sorts of cool shit, defo gonna bare the whole esim thing in mind when my current phone dies down the line.
Just want to confirm that abusing previous "new customer" signups on Uber Eats has also got me banned and whenever I create an account on a different phone, card, email, device etc. they always disallow usage of discounts for that account. I really don't know how they catch me, like others, they somehow catch me.
But then again, no big loss for me, as I would never order Uber Eats at full price anyway.
can I know what type of credit cards you use?
Your IP associate with your physical mac address, the easiest way to ban the user. Sometimes, browser cookies can betray you as well
MAC is only valid in LAN - unless the apps are digging MAC info indirectly.
In that case, creating cloud VMs would probably help.
My guess, try a) a new or factory-reset smart phone not using the same underlying account for Android or iOS, i.e. you must creat a new underlying ecosystem account b) use a public wifi (library, shopping centre, airport etc), and c) prepaid card without name….
If you are using Android, you can be identified in quite a few ways.
Primary five Android Identifiers are:
1/ Telephone Number
2/ Device ID/Serial Number
Devices without SIMs like tablets must report a unique device ID that is available via android.os.Build.
3/ AndroidID: 3 parts
(A) Set at the first boot (does not survive a factory-reset)
(B) Google Services Framework (GSF), often referenced as "GSF ID". Behaves basically like AndroidID (doesn't survive a factory-reset), and co-exists with it.
(C) GAID (Google Advertising ID) can be reset via the Google Settings app.
4/ UUID Instalation ID
As the requirement for most of applications is to identify a particular installation and not a physical device, a good solution to get unique id for an user if to use UUID class.
5/ MAC address from WiFi
So if you have multiple accounts, Uber can often link your accounts with this info
Can you use an android emulator ?
Sure, but I would keep an eye on those parameters listed above for repetition.
Basically they look for links and patterns
$80 and counting… thanks OP and Uber ☺️
Geez I HATE….. UBER.
Using the $20 off promo code + have $20 back on $30 spend on Westpac Card.
Got $55 worth in my cart. Tried pick up and delivery.
Cant get the order through. Says payment method not accepted (It just a normal visa card).
Checked details in Uber Wallet…all correct.
Rang Westpac…. no block on card
Cant find a way to contact help for this issue?? Anyone got ideas
try another card, that's all I've got.
Need to use that card for the westpac cashback promo.
For those people who do the sim trick for new ubereats accounts. Has anyone tried signing up for the 2 week free trial for the uberpass for free delivery and if so did it work? Plus was it real easy to cancel the uberpass right after you got the food?
I have, you cancel it straight away and still get the 2 weeks. Also try FORYOUNEWOA for $30 off.
