Here at Columbus SOUP, we don’t have partnerships—we have friendships. And we are so excited to tell you about our new friends at Uber.
Not familiar with Uber? Uber (www.uber.com) is an app that connects you with a driver at the tap of a button. Request a black car ride at any time using the Uber iPhone, Android, or Blackberry apps. You can track the arrival of your ride on your smartphone, payment is cashless (no need to tip!), and you’ll even receive a text message when your driver arrives.
Getting a ‘black car’ might not sound very SOUP-like at first, but we have to tell you—these folks are the real deal. They are great community partners who love Columbus as much as we do. About a month ago, they approached us and simply said, “We love SOUP. How can we help?” Boy, did they deliver.
Our awesome friends at Uber want to help make this the biggest and best SOUP yet, and they want everyone to have a safe, reliable ride to the event. Yep, they’re giving us all—including our community garden applicants—a free ride! But don’t let the picture above fool you… we’ll still be in our jeans and t-shirts.
We have loved Uber for a long time, and we’re honored they want to be a part of SOUP. Here are the details of the offer:
Sign up for Uber with the promo code SOUP114 and your first ride is FREE up to $20 (new users only. Valid only on UberBLACK). To sign up for an Uber account, go to www.uber.com/go/soup114 or from within our iPhone or Android app and enter promo code SOUP114 before the event.
Already have Uber? Don’t forget to rack up credits by sharing your invite code with family & friends and getting them to ride.
