$20 Uber Credit With Facebook Messenger For New & Existing Users

Facebook has launched a transportation feature on their Messenger. With this new feature, you can request a ride from a car service without ever needing to download an extra app.

To get started, download the latest version of Messenger. Then, from within a conversation, tap the more menu and choose Transportation. Uber is the first partner that has signed up. You just tap the car icon to request a ride. From there, you’ll receive updates on your driver’s status and notify your friends that you’ve called a ride.

The good thing about this new feature is that you’ll get a free ride the first time you use this feature (up to $20 value) with Uber. All you have to do to claim your free ride is link your existing Uber account or set up a new account within Messenger and request a ride. Driver status updates and payment receipts will get delivered to a private conversation between you and Uber.

This service is currently in testing and will be available to select users in the locations where Uber operates in the United States. More countries and other transportation partners will be available soon.


One thought on “$20 Uber Credit With Facebook Messenger For New & Existing Users

  1. I may have found a workaround if you don’t see the car/transportion option. You likely need the latest version of Messenger. Also, I do live in the Bay Area, so perhaps you need to change your zip code or lists (login via Uber website) for this to work.

    I didn’t see the car icon or transportation option, but I sent myself an address in the Facebook Messenger. When I clicked on the address, there was an option to “request a ride.” Clicked that and got prompted to connect Uber. After I logged in/connect, I got a message from Uber on Messenger confirming the $20 credit – I’ve already used Uber for many rides…
