Uber’s Pricey Valentine’s Day Promo- UberSky

Screen Shot 2014-02-13 at 4.08.39 PMUber is back with another fun, yet extremely pricey holiday promotion.

For Valentine’s Day, Uber has teamed up with Mastercard & Airsign to offer On-Demand SkyWriting to New York City.

UberSky will be available for $500!

Yes, you read that right $500! I’ve never looked into skywriting so I have no idea whether or not this is a high or low-cost, then again based on what I am reading, I don’t think I ever will.

How to book UberSky:

  • Open Uber between 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM today, February 14
  • Think up a good message (12 characters max.)
  • If available, request UberSky
  • Confirm the $500 price and wait for the Uber rep to call you
  • Tell them your message and the rep will let you know when you should expect to see your message in the sky

According to UberDemand will be high, so please be persistent if you’re unable to order skywriting on your first try. (Hint: If you’re a MasterCard holder, we’d strongly suggest adding that card to your Uber account and using it to purchase UberSKY—you might just find that your skywriting experience is truly priceless.)

I was wondering how Mastercard was involved and it sounds like, from the info Uber provided that if you pay with a Mastercard there will be a valuable benefit. Maybe they’ll pick up the tab for your UberSky? Just a guess!

Uber asks that people tweet pics of  UberSky messages using hashtag #SkysTheLimit

So who in the NYC area is willing to pay $500 for skywriting? Not me…

If you aren’t already signed up for an Uber account use my code ubermichaelwtravels to sign up.You will get $20 off your first ride and I will get $20 in Uber credit.

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone from Lake Como, Italy.
