Just When I Can't Get Any Lazier, Uber Hooks Me Up With Free Rides

Well this is kind of a bittersweet situation for me. On the one hand, I’m so out of shape I shouldn’t be taking cars anywhere. I should be walking virtually everywhere I ever go to stop myself from becoming morbidly obese.

But lets be realistic. That ain’t happening. I take cabs absolutely everywhere I go. That is, until now. Now its all Uber all the time. They got a new line of service – UBERx. Its like the perfect middle of the road car. Its better than a taxi but its not like a full blown $75 town car limo service. So when you don’t wanna deal with asshole yellow cabs who decide whether or not they want to pick you up and then charge you an absurd flat fee and you don’t wanna be bougie and spend a ton of money on a town car, UBERx is perfect.

And right now, Uber is offering a $20 credit for Stoolies signing up for the first time. If you want to use the fancier Uber services, you can knock 20 bucks off your price. If you use UBERx, $20 covers roughly 90% of all those rides. So you’re essentially getting an UBERx for free. Sign up through this link here. Make sure you enter the promo code “stool” and Uber will basically take you where you need to go free of charge. Could just be a lazy 10 block trip to the bar like Alessandra here. Could be a ride home from work in the rain. Could be a car to Penn Station on Friday afternoon before you head down to Squan or out to the Hamptons. Avoid hailing a yellow cab like a savage and never take a shady gypsy cab again. Sign up for UBERx now. 

*Note: Uber prices vary slightly according to peak hours. So when every Stoolie in New York City is trying to cash in this $20 voucher/free ride at 3am on Saturday, it might cost a bit more.
