It may not be fun to traverse in the roads of Metro Manila these days, what with heavy rains and much-publicized rallies causing massive gridlock, but Smart has something for you to ease your traffic woes (even for a little bit): two Uber rides for free!
Each ride is worth Php300 and can be used for any destination within Metro Manila. Smart users only need to visit www.smart.com.ph/uber, enter a mobile number and, if the registration is successful, wait for the promo code to arrive in the inbox. The promo code is then applied on the Uber app to enjoy the free rides.
Uber, established in 2009 and based in the US, is a tech company that helps riders find drivers through its apps. In other words, they offer an alternative, cheaper approach to the traditional taxi service. The apps are available on Android, iOS and Windows Phone.
In addition to the free rides, Uber passengers can take advantage of the free in-car Smart Wi-Fi. So even if, say, you’re stuck in hellish traffic, the comfort of Facebook, YouTube and the rest of the Internet can help pass the time.
The promo lasts until September 30.
