Existing Uber Customers – Get $20 In Uber Credit For Free! (New Customers Also – Get An Extra $20!)

Written by Charlie

It is rare for existing Uber customers to have a promo like new customers get, but you can not get that free ride up to $20 courtesy of a partnership with Facebook!

Uber has great new customer promos that are almost always at $20 or more for the first ride. But, there are not that many times that free credits are available for existing customers. Well, this is one time that existing Uber customers can get some credits as well – $20 in free credit!

Existing Uber Customers – Get $20 In Uber Credit For Free


This $20 in Uber credit for existing Uber customers is courtesy of a new partnership with Facebook. Like other $20 (and higher) promos from Uber, this is towards the first ride (after registering) so in reality, it could be less than $20 if your ride costs less. But, it would have to be a pretty short ride to be less than $20 in most places so this should fill the full $20!

Limited Markets Right Now

It does not appear for everyone at this time as they continue to roll it out through select markets. If it doesn’t show up for you, try updating the Messenger app or reinstalling it. If the Transportation method still does not show, you will just need to wait for it to hit your market. It is not currently available for me.

It is very simple to get this credit added to your existing account (if it is available in your market). Here is what you need to do:

Install Facebook Messenger

If you do not already have Facebook Messenger installed on your smartphone, install it now (or update it if you already have it).

Once installed (or updated), go to any contact/previous message and look at the bottom. You should see a car there. If not there, click on the … to open it from Transportation.

Link Uber Account

Once you have it in Facebook Messenger, link it to your existing account to see the $20 for your first ride (post promo). After that, just take a ride!

New Customers – An Extra $20!

If you have never used Uber yet, I would advise you to sign-up through a different referral before signing up for this one. Since this Facebook promo is available for existing customers as well as new, might as well get a free $20 from somewhere else first! Check out this post on how you can get $20 from IHG and 2,000 IHG points.


This is a great way for existing Uber customers to get a free $20! Of course, it is not yet available to all as it rolls out but definitely keep checking as this is a free ride waiting for you!

For all new customers, now you can get a total of $40!

  • Thanks! Two questions: 1. once we link and get the promo can we unlink and unsintall facebook app? 2. while we are linked what information gets shared from uber to facebook and vice-versa?

    • You should be able to unlink right away as it deposits it in your uber account. I honestly don’t know about what information is shared. I still don’t have it available to me 🙁
