I’ve been hearing about Uber for a few months now. From what friends have told me and from what I’ve read it seemed like a good company. If you haven’t heard of Uber, it is a company that allows you to get a taxi or car by using their app on your phone. I’ve known a few people that have used Uber. From what they’ve told me the prices are great. They are typically cheaper than a taxi.
I decided to give Uber a try on my recent trip to Miami. I signed up with them through one of my friend’s referral links. By doing that, I was able to get a $20 credit for my first ride.
Once I got to Miami I opened the app and requested a driver. The app alerted me that our driver would be a lady named “Regina”. It also said that she would be at my location in about 10 minutes.
Once Regina made it to the airport my friend and I loaded our bags into her car and we were off. Regina was a very nice driver. She got us to the hotel without any problem. Regina also told us that she had only been working with Uber for 2 days. She said she enjoyed it so far.
Once we got to the hotel the receipt popped up on the app. The total cost of the trip was $3.42 with the $20 credit applied! That was a damn good deal. Even if I didn’t have a credit, $23.42 would have still been a great price to get 2 people to South Beach from the Miami International Airport. That is much cheaper than a regular taxi or a shuttle.
I am pretty sure I will use Uber again, especially when I’m on vacation. It is safe and it saves money. If you haven’t used Uber before, make sure you sign up for it. If you use this link –> Jasonb2640 it will give you a $
20 $15 (Uber recently lowered the amount, but it’s still a great deal) credit towards your first ride.
How was your Uber experience? Would you use them again?
