New Gear for the New Year. Uber’s got your back.

We’re already a month into 2014 but it’s not New Year’s until you celebrate Seollal aka Lunar New Year! In Korea we have a little tradition called Seolbim, where people wear new clothes and shoes on Seollal to start off the new year fresh. Uber is partnering up with local custom made shirt brand  Stripes and Fair Trade Certified footwear soleRebels to hook you up with some new gear.


Ride Uber during the Seollal holidays to win
a custom made shirt or trendy new kicks!


HOW IT WORKS

  • Download the Uber app and sign up
  • Enter code UberSeolbim under Promotions in your app to opt in
  • Ride Uber between Wednesday 1/29 5pm and Sunday 2/2
  • If you take 2+ rides: 2 people will win a FREE custom made shirt from Stripes
  • If you take 5+ rides: all riders will receive a 50,000 won discount from soleRebels!

That’s not all! Ride Uber between Thursday 1/30 and Friday 1/3 and look inside the Bok Jumoni (traditional Korean pouch). You’ll receive a promo code that gives you 10% off 2 rides – valid till Sunday 2/2 11:59pm.
