Stars, Stripes and Uber For All!



Celebrate this 4th of July responsibly by taking Uber to and from your picnics and parties. But first, a few things you should know PLUS an easy to get FREE Uber this week!

  • New users take their first ride free up to $20 when they sign up with promo code “WAWA4th“!
