Gong Xi Fa Cai, Singapore!

As you prepare for a week of hosting and visiting family, reconnecting with old friends and being perpetually fed by our loving relatives, we’ll get you where you need to be seamlessly so you can focus on spending time with those who matter most (and filling your tummies with steamboat and grandma’s pineapple tarts).

We also have something to give all of you as we ring in the Year of the Rooster. Let your loved ones know that you’re wishing them good fortune with an Uber Angpao (red packets). Personalise it with their name, your message, and we’ll gift them a special promo worth $5 off 2 rides this CNY week valid until 31 Jan 2017.

  2. Create an Uber Angpao with the symbol of your choice – Fortune, Prosperity, Longevity, Happiness, or Wealth

  5. Your friends will receive a link via email where they can redeem the gift of $5 off 2 rides valid until 31 Jan 2017
  6. Your friends can in turn send an angpao to their own loved ones!


1. How many Uber Angpaos can I send?

There is no limit to the number of friends you can send angpaos to. However, do note that the promo inside the angpao can be used once per rider. Thus, if your friend received more than 1 angpao, he/she can still only apply the promo once.

2. Do I have to pay for the angpao rides I gift to my friends?

No, the rides are completely covered by us and is no cost to you.

3. How will my friends receive their free ride via the angpao?

They will receive an email to say that they have received a Chinese New Year gift from you. It will take them to a redemption page to receive a promo that will be auto-applied into their account. The promo is worth $5 off 2 rides until 31 Jan.

4. Can a person redeem more than 1 angpao?

A person can receive more than 1 angpao via emails, but the promo can only be applied once regardless of how many angpaos they received.

5. Is there a promo code to enter to avail the free angpao rides?

No. You will not need to enter a promo code. The email you receive will bring you to a redemption page. Simply input your mobile number and the promo will be automatically applied into your account and ready to use. The promo can only be redeemed once per rider, and valid until 31 Jan 2017 only.

6. I shared the angpao with my friend but he/she did not receive any email. What should they do?

Do ask your friend to check their junk/spam folder as well. There might be a chance that it landed there instead of the Inbox.

There is a limited number of Uber angpaos available, so send yours today. From our family to yours, we wish you a healthy, happy and prosperous new year!
