$20 coupon: GJ9WL
First of all, if you haven’t taken a ride yet make sure you use the coupon GJ9WL to get $20 off your first ride! Enter it right before you request a ride in the promotions tab. Might as well try it out since it probably won't cost you a thing!
The app is easy to use and intuitive, giving you important info like the driver’s face, phone number, and car make/model. It’s amazing how quick and seamless the entire process is. A car comes to your door within minutes of pressing a button! The drivers are real people, they are very polite and their cars are clean! Some even come with complimentary water and candy! Even if you want to charge your phone, a lot of drivers have car chargers at your ready! UberX is definitely cheaper than your average cab. After all this, I don’t see why you would ever use a cab again. Even if you want to get a black car on the occasional night out, it’s still cheaper and more convenient than hiring your own private driver.
The customer support is also fantastic. I got overcharged on one of my trips and I didn’t have to say anything more than a comment on my driver feedback to get a refund. I’m very happy and I hope Uber continues to exceed my expectations in not only the app but customer service! I also prefer Uber much more than other competitors, mainly because they have so much more supply and cars are always just a few minutes away, and price is usually the cheapest.
Can be better
I just tried using this app last Friday. I was carrying tons of grocery and decided to use Uber instead of a cab. The experience since then is always positive. The drivers are well mannered and professional. It's a bit uneasy at first going down the car without the physical payment. But that's the beauty of it because the payment will just be automatically deducted from your credit card. I only wish for some improvement on the app. Like 1) to someone show the "running bill" of the passenger. Sometimes rates are going up especially for rush hour. Of course, we wouldn't want a bill to shock us at the end of the right. This feature will come in handy for the passenger to get a gauge of how much will he approximately get charged on his credit card. 2) The ability to tap a nearby Uber Car and pick your own car. Some drivers already got good reviews and it will help passengers (especially first timers) to get a sense of trust with good performance drivers.
Other than this, the app is pretty much straightforward. You ask for a ride and uber will respond.
😔It's Not Exactly What You Think😒
⛔️READ⛔️: 👀✋ I've used Uber 3 times. The first, I was charged a hidden fee which was just double the amount of my trip because supposedly, changing suburbs will cost double. The second, I was dropped off at a gas station because the man had told me that he had no idea how to get to the location I requested; there is a map Uber drivers use and he simply told me that he felt uncomfortable taking the route since it called for driving on the express way. The third, the woman was sleeping at the wheel and not only did she run a red light on a busy intersection, she also went down the wrong side of the road where cars where coming at her so she drove across the dividend to avoid an accident. If I didn't rely on Uber for certain situations, I would not use this service because any driver can become an Uber driver and as you can see, the drivers definitely aren't truly certified to be drivers. I give this service 2 stars because while they are definitely a convenient way to get around, my experiences each time using them have been disasters and made me feel very uncomfortable. If I didn't need this service, I wouldn't use this.
