1,000 Free United Miles for Using Uber

Uber, the on-demand sedan service that is positioning itself as a taxi alternative, is expanding it’s app presence by embedding itself into the United Airlines mobile app.

From United:

Customers with iOS and Android mobile devices may access Uber ground transportation information in the United app’s menu or in the “My Reservations” card with a current reservation. The app will display Uber information, including types of available vehicles, estimated wait times and prices. After customers select a ride, the United app will automatically transfer them to the Uber app or the Uber website to sign up for an account to complete the transaction.

Customers who sign up for Uber via the United app and complete their first transaction will receive 1,000 MileagePlus award miles for a limited time.

What is odd about this promotion is that United Airlines says it will give you 1,000 MileagePlus award miles, but doesn’t offer any details on how exactly to qualify and when the miles will be awarded.

And according to website Engadget, United Airlines isn’t going to be the only travel-related partner, as Uber will soon be embedded into the Hyatt app and the TripAdvisor app.

Bottom Line

Uber is one of my favorite apps and I encourage you to sign up if you don’t have it already. Feel free to use my Uber link where you will get your first ride free up to $30.

What do you think of this latest partnership?

    It seems like to me that if you sign up for Uber through this app you might not get the $30 sign up bonus??? wondering?
