Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge owners to get free Uber rides as part of new partnership



Samsung and Uber have announced a new partnership that will include the taxi-but-not-technically-a-taxi car sharing service as a featured item in the new Galaxy Gifts widget and unlock free rides for Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge owners. New Uber users will earn $25 in credit toward their first rides.

The credit will be added automatically when downloading the app via the Galaxy Gifts widget and signing up for a new account. Unfortunately, the offer does not seem to extend to those who already have an Uber account, making the Samsung deal more or less the same $25 incentive offered to new users signing up with a code provided by a friend. Ultimately, non-Galaxy S6 owners won’t be missing out on much.

Where the partnership goes beyond free ride credit and a featured spot in Samsung’s widget remains to be seen, but it follows similar partnerships with wireless partners like AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint.

  1. awww damn i was gonna get a galaxy s 6 and use uber for my morning commute to save on gas. lol it’s just a $25 credit though.

    1. dude they are trying anything and everything to sell this thing

  2. Title is totally misleading. You get $30 when you refer a friend to Uber… $25 is like one ride; not enough to justify buying the phone.

    On the other hand, the S6 is a great piece of hardware.

    1. You’re right. Certainly not a deciding factor in buying the device but it’s nice seeing these small perks that can go along with buying one.

  3. Uselessness!! Unless… you can stack the credit. First time user AND new phone. If you can stack the credit it *may* hold some value.
