Uber and Capital One will give out free rides to eligible customers this weekend, according to the ride-share company’s website.
Beginning Friday, March 4, any Uber customer with a Capital One credit card can get up to four free rides from UberPOOL by using the code CAPITALONEPOOL. Said card must be linked to the customer’s Uber account and must be in good standing, and it’s only applicable to POOL rides, not UberX or UberBLACK rides. So in order to get in on the promotion, you have to share your ride with a stranger. Consider it a frugal way to make new friends.
The offer is available in 11 cities nationwide, including Boston, and only applies to rides that start and end in the same city. (No going from Downtown Crossing to Worcester on Uber’s dime.)
The promotion ends at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 6.
