Celebrating All #MidwestMoms

In the Midwest, we know our moms are extremely hard working, uniquely spirited and better than all other moms (okay, we may be a little biased on that last one ;))

This Mother’s Day, the Uber Midwest crew — Minneapolis, Detroit & Chicago — has teamed up to bring you a little something special to really spoil your mom. Tweet #MidwestMoms to the city she lives in and you could win $100 in Uber credit for your Mom! In Chicago, you’ll also win a $50 gift certificate to take your Mom to Mercadito!

Here’s what it takes to win:

  • Share a story about your Mom with #MidwestMoms. Why she’s so awesome? Pics of your fav memory? Special gift you have planned? Whatever it is, tell us!
  • Tweet at the Uber city where your Mom lives: @Uber_CHI, @Uber_MSP or @Uber_DET. You must tweet the right city to win!
  • Each city will announce a winner on Friday at 5pm.
  • Make sure Mom has her Uber account ready – we’ll be dropping $100 credit for her to enjoy a day of Uber for Mother’s Day!

Not a winner? We’ll still make sure your Mom is taken care of! Copy the image below and email to Mom for her first Uber BLACK ride on us this Mother’s Day.


No matter what city you’re in, Uber is the perfect gift to help make your mom feel like the VIP we all know she is.

Just ask a few of our community managers in the Midwest! With Moms located in different cities, we still know how to to make her day extra special. Check out our plans for how we’re making this an Uber Mother’s Day our Moms’ won’t forget:

Nicole, Chicago CM:

“Since Uber just launched in Detroit, I’m really excited to send my Mom for a day at the spa in a BLACK car. I can’t physically be there with her on Mother’s Day, so I wanted to create an experience she wouldn’t forget. (And I may have just ruined the surprise!) Love you, Mom!”

Janel, Minneapolis CM:

“This Mother’s Day, I’m treating my mom to a class at her favorite cooking school, and a Chicago suburb Uber to get her there! We always take a class whenever I’m home – we’re both big foodies, plus she loves when we can spend time together and do something hands on! Happy Mother’s Day, Madre :)”


Zack (Chicago CM) and his Mom in Chicago




Zack, Chicago CM:

“My mom and I will be discussing the intricacies of the seminal American sitcom “Frasier” while spending the day completing crossword puzzles.”



Max (Chicago Senior CM) and his Mom in Chicago

 Max, Chicago Senior CM:

“The addition of suburbs coverage has made it even easier to go see my Mom in Park Ridge, which is good but comes with additional pressure to go out there ;). Excited to check out brunch at BellyQ for Mother’s Day!”



David’s (Chicago CM) Mom and dog.




 David, Chicago CM:

“For Mothers Day, my mom and I will be hanging out on the lake with Biggie the dog.”



Tricia, Chicago CM:

“For Mother’s Day, I’ll be sending my mom a Congrats Grad card.”

Tricia’s (Chicago CM) Mom sent her this card for Valentine’s Day


Happy Mother’s Day to all of those special women in our lives!
