We are for bikes, but sometimes you just can’t, won’t, or don’t want to ride. In times like those, we Uber.
Uber is an on-demand car service, born in San Francisco that connects professional licensed drivers with riders via a very smart iPhone or Android app. Press the request button and within minutes a car of your choice arrives curbside, ready to whisk you away. Uber drivers are vetted (i.e they’re legit), they greet passengers by name so you feel safe and a little bit important, and rides are billed directly to your credit card on file. No cash or awkwardness is exchanged. It’s brilliant. We’re proud of locally grown Uber for thinking different and using technology to solve a problem, so we’ve partnered with them on a very fun program this month.
Every day from Dec 3 – 22, we’re dropping secret offers to Uber passengers in San Francisco. There will be at least two lucky winners a day. See the deets for Dec Uber excitement below.
- Every day, one made in San Francisco messenger will be found in Uber’s slightly magical Unicorn (i.e. an albino town car). The passenger gets to keep the messenger (high five) and if they tweet a photo of their new bag, they’ll unlock a Timbuk2 offer.
- Every day, one Timbuk2 Full-Cycle Messenger will be found in in an Uber Hybrid (learn about UberX) with the same offer inside. The passenger gets to keep the messenger and if they tweet a photo of their new bag, they’ll unlock a Timbuk2 offer.
- On December 15 and 16, Uber passengers who begin or end rides at Timbuk2′s retail store in Hayes Valley, will receive $10 off their ride. To redeem this offer, enter the promo code “Timbuk2SF” into the Uber app before your ride. You will get a confirmation message if the code is entered successfully.
