While we love the ease of taking an Uber, it can get quite pricey. Uber South Africa and DStv are offering Cape Town users 16 free Uber trips between the 1st and 30th December (to the value of R100).

With traffic and parking in and around the CBD becoming a total nightmare over the festive season (read: all the time), simply opening up the Uber app for a free ride can be the perfect Christmas present for the “man-about-town”.

The service is, however, limited to the CBD and the Atlantic Seaboard (see map below).

Here’s How You Can Get 16 Free Rides With Uber

  1. Open your Uber app.
  2. Select ‘Payment’ on the App Menu.
  3. Under ‘Promotions’, click ‘Add Promo/Gift Code’
  4. Enter the code DStv and click ‘Add’.
  5. Once applied successfully, the code will unlock the UberSUMMER vehicle view (close the app and give this 15 minutes to load).

Here’s The ‘Nitty Gritty’

  1. This offer entitles you to a free ride of R100 starting and ending in the Promotion Area during the Promotion Period.
  2. The Promotional Code must be entered before requesting the first Ride. The discount will then automatically be applied to all eligible rides during the Promotion Period.
  3. A user can apply the Promotional Code only once during the Promotion Period.
  4. The entire redeemable value of the discount must be used on each ride and any unused portion will be forfeited. If the cost of the ride exceeds the total value of the discount, then the remaining balance will be charged to you.
  5. Neither the Promotional Code nor the Discount can be transferred, duplicated, or sold and they have no cash value. Neither the Promotional Code or the Discount can be combined with any other discounts, codes or promotions.
  6. The Promotion Area is an area in the Central Business District of Cape Town (see map below).

Promotion Period is between the hours of 08:00 and 20:00 from 1 – 30 December 2016 (inclusive of both dates).
