I doubt anyone needed an extra incentive for ordering a ride in the frigid weather, but Uber has decided to offer one anyway. During the , when you take a trip in an Uber or give a ride, you'll receive an exclusive coupon from Starbucks for buy one, get one free beverages...just for sitting there!
The coupons (delivered via email) are good for any handcrafted beverages (of ANY size) at participating Starbucks locations after 2 p.m. through December 12. Your free beverage must be of equal or lesser value to the one you buy. You can get up to one coupon per day (which means you can't use multiple Starbucks coupons as a justification for your third Uber of the day), and you can receive up to three coupons total throughout the week.
Drivers are being incentivized to provide their most excellent service this week, as well. When riders leave a tip after their ride, they'll be helping the driver earn a Starbucks eGift Card.
Five to 10 tips will get a driver a $5 gift card, 10-19 tips will get a $10 gift card, and if a driver earns 20+ tips, they'll receive a $20 gift card.
"Between gift shopping, home decorating, and merry making, we sometimes need a reason to just be there for friends and loved ones. That's why this holiday season, Uber and Starbucks want you to share a moment—and a beverage—with those who are most important to you," states.
So, order a ride this week, and then get you and your bestie drinks from Starbucks. Don't forget to tip your driver!
