Rejoice, Uber riders, booking with Galaxy S6 will now net you a $25 discount
Newly-minted owners of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge phones just have to fire up the Galaxy Gifts promo widget, get Uber’s app, and will be in for a sweet $25 ride discount added to their accounts. As per Lars Fjeldsoe-Nielsen, VP of mobile at Uber: "We are excited about the combination of Samsung’s reach and Uber’s global footprint — in 300 cities across 56 countries — that means riders around the world can get wherever they need to go, whenever they choose with the simple touch of a button.” Here's how exactly the deal will work, according to Uber's blog post:
- Go to Galaxy Gifts on a Samsung Galaxy S6 or other Uber enabled handset.
- Download the Uber app and sign up.
- A $25 discount (in the US) is automatically added to the phone’s Uber account.
- Tap the Uber button and take a ride.
