San Diego #SuperUber Saves the Day!

Some of you know Matt Whiffen, our friendly neighborhood Uber Driver Operations Manager. By day, Matt is saving you from parking nightmares and DUIs by sending swarms of Ubers out to the streets. But, by night…well, let’s just say Matt is a different kind of a hero… 

It’s true folks, Ubers will be swarming downtown San Diego for this year’s Comic-Con. If you’re making your way to or from the Convention Center, there will be an Uber nearby, ready to rescue you from the delays and dirty seats of…alternate forms of transportation. Here’s the deal, we’ve got several hero-like promotions happening this weekend in celebration of costumed superheroes and Hollywood celebs that are roaming our downtown streets.

First, if you use the promo code SUPERUBER from July 12 through July 15 you’ll get $10 off your Super Uber experience!

Next, we’re challenging you to show us your Super Uber antics! To take advantage of this sweet promo you’ll need to do a few things:

  • Be sure you’re following @Uber_SD
  • Use the #SuperUber hash tag and tweet us your photos either in an Uber, or in front of one during Comic-Con. (Hey, if you’re in costume, that’s even better — creativity wins!)
  • Feel free to email your photos in as well to with the subject SUPER UBER.
  • Then, spread the Uber love by telling a comic-crazed friend about #SuperUber!

Show us your photos with your Uber and our San Diego Uber sidekicks will pick our favorite! We’ll give the winner $100 in Uber credits that will save you from the Kryptonite and Villains (or at least the Comic-Con folk dressed up as them!)

That’s not all San Diego. THERE’S MORE!

As you’re riding around town in your super sleek Uber-mobile, and you happen to notice that your driver is wearing a Super Uber cape (yes, a cape) then you’re in REAL luck. Tweet me a picture with your Super Uber driver, and the best photo will win $100 in Uber credits!

We’ll see you Uber-fans at Comic-Con!
