Uber Celebrates a Million Sacramento Rides

By Laura Braden

This weeks marks the one-millionth Uber ride in Sacramento – and they have a whole week of fun and surprises planned!

We’ve written a ton about Uber in the past, and we were lucky to be one of their partners during the 2013 #SMEBB competition. GOTG loves Uber for at least 10 fabulous reasons, and one of our writers is even a part-time driver!

So without further adieu, check out the funtivities Uber has planned all week:

  • Monday, 8/24: Snap a thank you selfie with your driver for the chance to win Sacramento Kings tickets. Post to Instagram, include a “thank you” message to the Uber drivers of Sacramento, and tag #UberSAC and #AMillionThanks.

  • Tuesday, 8/25: Uber is teaming up with Chando’s to bring Downtown and Midtown Sacramento ‘Taco Tuesday on Demand’. From 11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., we’re delivering $5 lunch boxes – three carne asada tacos + chips – from the beloved taco shop. Just request right from the Uber app!

  • Wednesday, 8/26: Take a ride between 7:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.  for the to chance to win a Hawaiian getaway, courtesy of Hawaiian Airlines and HotelTonight. Simply enter the promo code GOALOHA in the promotions section of the app before each ride.

  • Thursday, 8/27: The Uber team will be on the R St. Corridor handing out free ride promo codes.

  • Friday, 8/28: Uber will announce a special promotion with LiveNation, and Sacramento residents will get the chance to use the app to request a ride and two tickets to the Florida Georgia Line concert – free of charge.

Happy riding!
