  1. Shawn.. Looks like this will work only from Airport to the destination but not vice versa.. I live $20 from IAD and not sure if something like this will work.. “Enter pick-up as IAD and then call Uber driver to pick-up from my home and drop me off to IAD”. The math still works for free ride since total will be ~$40 ($20 From IAD to home and $20 from home back to IAD)

  2. Can anyone explain how to make sure the promo is applied to a ride? My first ever ride worked fine, but I’ve had a $25 promo on the app for two weeks , and nine rides later, it’s never been applied. I googled this of course, but no one actually explains this.

    Love the blog, Shawn

    • Hey Bill. I believe you need to have an Amex card linked to your account and you need to select it as the payment method of your ride. Additionally you need to be riding from one of the included airports. As far as I understand it, if you do those things the credit will be done automatically. If you do have issues with a promo not being applied, I have found that Uber customer service is fast and effective.
