cashPOOL’s everything around me

83 cable car rides. 300 boxes of Rice-A-Roni. 14 moderately priced plaid flannel shirts. You must be wondering… what could all these things possibly have in common?!?

If you guessed “THINGS I COULD BUY WITH $500 IN cashPOOL WINNINGS” then you’re right! You’re a trivia savant. You should drop absolutely everything you’re doing and request uberPOOL this Wednesday because you could win $500 in cold hard cash!


Your eyes aren’t deceiving you, Quiz Show Aficionado. Request uberPOOL in San Francisco on Wednesday, November 5, from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m., and you might get a cashPOOL instead! If you land in a car with an Uber Quizmaster, we’ll hand you a crisp greenback for every question you get right on the way to your destination.


  • Open the app in SF on Wednesday, Nov. 5, from 4pm to 7 pm.
  • Choose uberPOOL, enter your destination and request a ride.
  • When your uberPOOL arrives, you might be one of many lucky riders matched with an Uber Quizmaster
  • Win up to $500


If you happen to be a contestant on cashPOOL, you can expect the opportunity to answer a series of 10 questions, of escalating difficulty and value, for a chance to win up to $500 cash.

Questions cover the full brain teaser gamut, touching on movies, music, sports, geography, history, gaming, US presidents, science, technology, television and literature. You get two cashPOOL survival tools (aside from your wits, obviously):

Call someone for 30 seconds (including dial time) to ask for help on a specific question. No looking up answers on your phone, though!


You can miss one question and continue playing. If you miss a second question, the game is over (don’t worry, you’ll still get to your destination).

This is a one-day only giveaway, so take advantage of it while it lasts! Even if you’re not matched with someone ready to relay some trivia, uberPOOL is the cheapest ride in San Francisco. On average, uberPOOL adds less than five minutes to your ride and fares are as much as 40% lower — so you win either way!
