not abuse in a bad way. Just I got my money's worth. I went from Flatbush to the city several times for 2.99. And split longer rides in 2. Didn't do any airport stuff.

I've been in touch with Uber support - one representative sent me a link to purchase flat fares (but it didn't work). Other rep said it's not being offered this month (which I called her out on). Attached is the link from the representative:

This link also says that its only good for $25 off each ride last month was $30, and there's no 10 ride option.

She said it was for this month - also if click on link it has the option to purchase either 2.99 pool and 7.99 Uberx (not last months 5.99 uberx)..

Did people's "flat fare tab" disappear from the app?

Message from Uber support:

In order to sign up for the flat fares packages, you'll need to purchase the fares in your app. You'll then have an option in your menu in the app. - it says "Get Flat Fares". Then you'll be taken to a screen that guides you through the purchase. When you've completed your purchase, you will be able to request rides as normal and only be charged the pre-determined flat fare. These fares do not surge, and the number of trips you can get at these pre-determined flat fares depends on which package you purchased.

Not sure how to get the tab back - talking with uber support, will keep you all updated

I spoke to Uber Support. Looks like though there is a new NYC package structure that was rolled out it's currently "sold out", though it's possible that it's now open to targeted accounts only.
