Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Sign Up Your Friends and Win a Happy Hour for Ten

Even if you’ve got the luck of the Irish on your side, you shouldn’t leave your Patty’s Day transportation plans up to chance. With that in mind, Uber wants to make sure everyone in Sacramento has a safe and reliable ride home this weekend… but we need your help!

THE GAME

We want to treat you and TEN of your closest friends to delicious drafts and yummy snacks in a private party room at LowBrau. Seriously. All of you have to do to win this Pot O’ Gold is sign up more people for Uber than anyone else in town. To enter:

  • Tweet @Uber_Sac using the hashtag #SaintSignupsDay or email tess@uber.com
  • I’ll provide you with a custom invite code; be sure to follow me on Twitter first so I can DM you
  • Share with friends, family members, coworkers, and that girl from grade school who’s always trolling your Facebook feed
  • Everyone you sign up will get their first Uber ride for FREE (up to $40)

This SaintSignupsDay contest starts as soon as you get your code from me and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday night… so hurry up, you little leprechauns! Final tallies will be taken after the clock strikes midnight and all winners will be announced on Monday morning.

 THE GOODS

**Grand Prize**

  • Happy hour for ten friends with draft beers and sausages at LowBrau
  • Five free rides, good through the end of next week and valued up to $200 total
  • Sweet Uber T-shirt and other swag

Plus free rides and T-shirts for the second and third place winners… and of course, EVERYONE who signs up gets a free first ride (up to a $40 value), redeemable through the end of April.

 THE GOAL

Get as many River City residents using Uber as humanly possible! If you’re short on ideas, here are some good ways to start collecting those signups:

  • Email your whole office or put signs up at the watercooler (don’t forget to use your personal promo code so you get credit)
  • Preemptively invite your friends to the happy hour on the condition that they email THEIR offices and tweet out your code
  • Make a “Kiss Me, I Uber” pin to wear out on Sunday — and when a new bud leans in for a smooch, whisper your promo code in their ear

Pro tip for maximizing signups — Have people download the app to their phone and sign up right then and there! It only takes a minute and then they will be ready to request at a moment’s notice.

Not sure how to explain Uber to your friends? Try this:

Uber is your key to a sleek ride anywhere in Sacramento at any time with the tap of an app. From the quick pickup with a lovely driver to the fact that your fare is automatically charged to your card (no need to tip!), you’ll love Sac’s most tech savvy and seamless town car service.  Download the Uber app to your phone and enter the promo code to get your first ride FREE*!

*1st ride free up to $40 and is good from now to 4/30/13

That’s all! Happy Friday, errrrone.
