UBER: Save Money & Take UBER to the Stampede – FREE First Ride Promo Code!

YAHOO! The Calgary Stampede is finally here!

If you’re going to the Stampede, consider taking an Uber – it’s convenient and you’ll save you money.

I went yesterday during Sneak-A-Peek and the Stampede grounds is charging $25 for parking this year!

Uber has setup a special Uber zone near Stampede Park to make pickup and drop-off a breeze. It’s located on 12th Avenue SE and 3rd Street SE – there’s a lot of signage all over the place directing you.

Also, Uber  has also partnered with Budweiser and built an “Uber + Budweiser Riders Lounge“. Take a break and recharge your phone and enjoy complimentary Budweiser’s new non-alcoholic Prohibition beer. It’s located near the corner of 12th Avenue SE and 3rd Street SE and is open from 4pm to 3am every day.

If you’re going to be drinking, PLEASE Don’t Drink and Drive! It’s not worth it. Be smart. Plan in advance. Find a designated driver, call someone, call a taxi – better yet, get an Uber and save! Uber is 30% cheaper than a traditional taxi ride!

Sign-up for Uber now and enter my promo code uberDealsBlog and you’ll get your First Uber Ride for FREE (up to $15 CAD)! I love Uber and highly recommend it.

Here’s why Uber is awesome:

  • Cashless & Convenient: You don’t need cash. The fare is automatically charged to your credit card on file – no need to tip.
  • One Tap to Ride: Uber uses your phone’s GPS to detect your location and connects with the nearest available driver. Get picked up anywhere – usually within minutes.
  • Reliable Pick-ups: When you request a ride, they’ll located a driver and let you track their location on the map. Your drivers name, car details and ratings will appear in the app.
  • Clear Pricing: Can enter your pick-up and drop-off locations to get a fare estimate before your trip.
