Uber Pool Flat Fares in NYC for $2.99, or Uber X for $5.99
« on: February 02, 2017, 10:06:49 PM »
After a $10 activation fee, get 20 rides at those flat rates within NYC (airports excluded), or pay $20 for 40 rides within 30 days.

Effectively, it is $3.49 per Uber Pool ride, or $6.49 per Uber X ride.

Map of included areas is here

Sign up is here

"Flat fares apply to rides up to a $30 value for uberPOOL or a $30 value on uberX (based on time and distance). If your total ride cost exceeds the maximum value, you’ll be charged the flat fare, plus an overage for the dollar amount over the maximum ride value covered. And don’t worry, if the total ride cost is ever less than the flat fare, we’ll charge you the lesser amount."

If you take one UberX $30 ride, it's already paid for itself, crazy!

I was waiting for a facetious comment ..I'm only asking because I found that Miami has a similar program, but I couldn't get it to work. It says "currently unavailable"

Thanks OP.

I actually got the email from Uber and disregarded it without opening since I figured it was another "only within Manhattan" package.

Sure thing.

I was quite surprised it hadn't been posted here yet.

You think anyone will try to monetize this?

Will flat fares cover rides of any price?

$2.99 uberPOOL and $5.99 uberX flat fare pricing covers almost every trip within the NYC area, up to a $30 value for uberPOOL or $30 value for uberX. If the total cost of your ride exceeds the maximum value stated, you'll be charged the flat fare price, plus any remaining amount above the maximum value.
Trips eligible within designated zone.
This zone excludes airports.

Right, so it's $24 off on any uberX ride that costs more than $30.

Looks like it is available in a bunch of cities. Type in https://www.uber.com/info/plus/YOURCITYNAMEHERE/ to see if you can get the deal.

Wiki added, please add other cities you can find.
