Who has the Most Uber Credits?Ever since I've blogged about Uber, I was earning Uber credits from referrals from Boy-Kuripot.com. At first I didn't mind it too much but when I got a few referrals every week, it got me wondering how much credits I already had earned. So I took out my phone and opened Uber app and look at what I found! I have almost P13,000 worth of Uber credits!
Find out how I earned it below....
Don't take this post the wrong way. My intention is not to boast but to share this information so you can build your Uber credits too which means you don't pay for anything or in short FREE! If you don't have an Uber account yet, just register using my referral link https://www.uber.com/invite/i6s7a to get a P300 credit instantly. After this, you can use your own referral link to promote to your friends. Every successful referral will give you P300 credit (before it was a whopping P1,000). Do note though that a referral is only considered when the person you refer actually uses Uber for the 1st time.
If you read about my Uberific experience, you would see that they had a referral meter before that max out on P50,000. I'm not anywhere close to that number yet so I don't know if it still would apply. Another thing I liked before is that they showed who you registered from you referral and haven't ridden yet, that is if you know them in the first place.
Price surge of 3x
My rides with Uber had its ups and downs. You can read about one of the first rides. Before the rates were a bit more expensive than taking a cab but the service and car is definitely far superior and worth the price. At one time, they launched a fixed fee going to the airport that bummed me out (even if I was just using credits). I also hate the price surges which increased rates from 1.5 to 3 depending on the demand of riders.
Airport flat fee rate
Uber initially offered UberBLACK whose cars and drivers are from professional car agencies used by hotels. Recently, they launched a new service called uberX. These are their newly purchased fleet of cars. They are also the ones managing their own drivers. This service is much cheaper as the flag down rate is P40 compared to uberBLACK's P90. Per minute rate as well as per KM rate is substantially cheaper as well. Honestly, I don't know how they are earning. Just look at my recent trip from the airport that took an hour!
Some tips while to maximize Uber. For uberX, you can request a bottle of mineral water from the driver which they keep stock in the trunk. For all Uber rides, you can ask the driver to tether their Wifi. If they don't know how to, you can offer to set it up for them. Lastly, if you can't find any Uber cars around, you can try moving your pin a bit (not more than 1KM else you would need to rebook it) or just hit the request button and wait for an uber car to be available.
