Uber Giving Gifts in NYC This Week

Uber promo

Uber doesn’t just drive passengers to their destination, they also like to do fun, gimmicky promos like deliver kittens, Christmas trees, air conditioners.

Back in September, Uber had a fun Star Wars promo where some lucky passengers got picked up in a Storm Troopers car and were given a Star Wars Hot Wheels car.

Uber is introducing 5 Days of Giving this week to some lucky New Yorkers!

In this new promo, taking place November 30 through December 4, Uber will “be delivering FREE gifts to lucky New Yorkers from our favorite brands, including VINCE., L’Occitane, One Kings Lane, and Diane von Furstenberg“, according to an e-mail I received.

On Tuesday which is World AIDS Day, Uber riders can do some giving by riding red to donate to help the fight against AIDS.

Here is how the offer works:

  • Enter promo code: TAPGETGIVE to unlock the holiday option
  • Request HOLIDAY from Monday through Friday, between 11AM to 3PM in Manhattan (below 59th Street) and in Brooklyn (Williamsburg & Greenpoint).
  • Those that get connected will have an Uber driver come by to bring you your gift.

No ride with Uber is required and you need to meet the driver curbside since drivers can not leave their vehicles.

If you’re curious to find out what the gift is, each morning Uber will “reveal who the day’s brand partner is and their gift“.

Today’s giveaway is a cashmere sweater from VINCE. One delivery will come with a $5,000 VINCE gift card.

This sounds like an interesting promo and even though the brands mentioned above don’t really sound so exciting to me I’d still give it a try if I happen to find myself in Williamsburg or Greenpoint this week. (Not so likely…)
