So no evidence that the code is still working. They randomly gave me 30 free minutes, I'm wondering if they gave that to everyone.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I got 10 free minutes; though, I'm not sure how random they were.

I wouldn't recommend useing car2go often,  it's very expensive,  most of the times you end up better off with a car service.
money doesn't talk......      it SCREAMS !

Not really. Figure you're paying around the same for car / gas / mileage, but you're not paying for the drivers salary..

If you actually ran the numbers, you'd see that it usually comes out cheaper then a car service / taxi / uber.
Although with these options, you don't need to worry about finding parking.

-1 on 95% of occasions. By me it was usually ~ half price.

I had a different experience with them,  they are very expensive ( take in consideration the tax what they charge)  and with all the traffic I ended up paying not that much  cheaper then a car service

Not always is money the only factor, though. Many times it's worthwhile paying the extra few $$s for a car service and not having to walk to the car or wait for one to be available. In every situation I weighed my options.

I had free minutes on my account and took a ride, but was charged because i "used a different payment profile", which it says nothing about in the t&c's. I asked them to credit the minutes towards the ride, but they refused (and instead gave me more free minutes). I disputed the charge with the credit card, like i warned them i would. Waiting to see their reaction if they ban me.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Is it worth the gamble?

It was more the principle of the matter for me. I don't use it enough to really care if they throw me off.

You're not dealing with an individual, this is a big company, you're not teaching anyone a lesson.

I know. I was just annoyed with them.
