I can't tell from this picture what's going on, are all those pictures at the same time?

Seems like he opened the app on 5 phones at the same time, and it only showed availability on the account that was using it for the first time.

I'm impressed they were able to roll out this sort of software "fix" for their promo code conundrum so quickly. Unless this was planned all along?

They might have had a built in system to prioritize customers with higher ratings, and just ranked promo-code customers lower in that system.

Maybe there was only one car available at the time, so only the first phone that requested got it.

Doesn't seem like the first confirmed it yet, though.

Looks like the 1st phone is on a different screen than the others

That would just make the scandal bigger. Depending on how things run under the hood, it’s possible they already had all the pieces in place from before.

I just tried on 2 accounts, both have promo credit but on 2nd account I didn't use any credit yet.
First account said too high demand, 2nd account shows me a taxi

Try hard stopping both apps, then try them in reverse order

No way they can claim that "Revel Rideshare is similar to the black & pink apps on your phone" with such wait times.

He meant since the promos went viral. I dont think they had such extended wait times prior to coupons.
