Groupon has another limited time car service offer. This time it is 53% off car service in New York with Uber or in Chicago with Limos Inc.

These deals often pop up from time to time and I’ve blogged about them in the past. Through the NYC offer you can get $40 worth of NYC on demand car service for a total of $19. Through the Chicago offer you can get a one-way airport car service for $35 or a round-trip car service for $69.

1) How To Get 53% Discount On NYC Uber Car Service

Discount Car Service Options

The offer provides $19 for $40 Worth of On-Demand Transportation Services. After scheduling a pickup spot via Uber’s iPhone or Android app customers board an Uber car that transports them to anywhere in New York City. Base fare starts at $6 for an UBERx midrange car, $7 for a black sedan, or $14 for an SUV that seats up to six. Some sample prices for trips in an Uber black sedan include Penn Station to the Upper West Side ($25), West Village to Park Slope ($42), and Wall Street to Grand Central ($37).

About Uber Service

Commended by Michael Arrington of TechCrunch for “eliminating everything bad about a taxi experience,” Uber dispatches vehicles with a click of a button. After registering online, customers can forego flagging down cabs or hijacking buses and instead summon one of Uber’s sedans via the iPhone or Android app. Uber deploys rides within 5-10 minutes of the request, and hassle-free online accounts automatically deduct fare, including tip, from the customer’s credit card, thereby eliminating the need to carry cash or learn to count.

Comments

  1. Tried this and received an error message that “Promotion is only available to new users”. This limitation is not in the “Fine Print”. Sent Groupon a message…

  2. Now it says new customers only. I have never used them before, but signed up a while back. This will be my first trip to NYC since I signed up. What exactly is a “New Customer”?

  3. Having read above’s comments, I’ve learned that it’s for new customers only. I hope that returning customers will also have discounts, after all these customers have tried your service that’s why they keep on coming back.
