Uber provides promo codes that offer all sorts of ride credits for new Uber users, but if you’re an existing Uber user, you don’t get many opportunities for more freebies. Uber promo codes that work for existing customers are almost impossible to find because they are only created for limited-time events.
Even though Uber doesn’t offer promo codes to existing users, there are plenty of other ways to earn free Uber credits and discounts.
Are there Uber promo codes for existing users in 2019? (Not really)
There are typically no publicly-available Uber promo codes for existing users. The only promo codes for existing users are created by Uber for special promotional events, and the codes expire a few hours after the event ends. Nearly all codes you find online are for new users who have never requested a ride. It’s mostly a waste of time to look for promo codes that work for existing customers because most are expired or for new users only.
Use the “Free Rides” app feature to get free Uber rides as an existing user
Existing users can use the “Free Rides” feature of the Uber app to find & share your own promo code. You can text an invite to your contacts, and if they sign up with your link or promo code and take a ride, you’ll receive a free ride credit. If you find yourself in a big group situation and you need to get more than one Uber, offer your promo code to one of your group members who has never downloaded the app and you’ll both get quick, free ride credits.
Existing Uber users can use a Lyft promo code to get Lyft discount
If you’ve already used an Uber promo code, the Free Rides feature is the best reliable way to get fast app credits. If Lyft is in your city and you haven’t tried it yet, you can get a discount on your first free ride. Use the Lyft promo code listed below.
|Uber Promo Code||Promotion Credit||Expiration Date|
|cws7s2||Varies city to city||Never!|
|Lyft Promo Code||Promotion Credit||Expiration Date|
|LYFTRSD||Varies city to city||Never!|
Have a friend download Uber and use promo code ‘cws7s2‘ — They can request the Uber
Here’s how to get your free Uber as an existing user, without using a promo code yourself: Find a friend in your group who hasn’t used Uber yet, then have them download the app and input ‘cws7s2.’ They initiate the ride, and you join them. Score, free ride! Disclosure: That code is my promo code and I may receive an app credit for cash bonus if you use it.
That trick works for UberX, XL, Select, and Black Car, and all other Uber services.
Here’s how this idea came to me: I was out driving in Los Angeles one night, and I got a ride request from a rider with a huge group, around 10 people. I told him he would need more than one Uber, so he should have a friend in the group download the app and input my promo code. One of his friends downloaded the app and everyone got a free ride.

Other ways for existing Uber users to get app credits and discounts
Uber and partnering companies offer several different ways to save on rides. Here are some of the the current ways to get app credits.
Uber Visa Card – Uber offers a Visa credit card that gives cash back on Uber rides and other purchases. It’s similar to many other cash back credit cards — There’s no annual fee, and various categories offer different levels of cash back rewards.
Visa Local Offers – Uber partners with local businesses to offer Uber credits when you purchase items with a qualifying Visa card. For example, in IHOP in Los Angeles offers 10% back in Uber credits for Visa users.
Uber Ride Pass – A monthly Uber subscription that offers price protection (avoid surge pricing), and overall savings on rides. Currently in Los Angeles the Ride Pass is $24.99 per month and offers up to 15% off if you take rides in the metro LA area.
What about promo codes for UberEATS?
UberEATS provides plenty of promo codes for new users, but they don’t offer many for existing users. Share your UberEATS code to get app credits, and watch out for special promotions that Uber occasionally sends to EATS customers.
