Uber car saving ideas
There are some things you can do to save some money, time and make the process of ordering an Uber as effective as possible.
You get a 2-minute grace period when calling a car.
If you ordered your Uber too soon, or it arrived quicker than expected. Either way, you're in luck -- you get 2 minutes free when the Uber arrives. After that, the fees begin, they're still pretty minimal. Here's what they are for San Francisco and New York:
35 cents per minute for UberX
50 cents per minute for UberXL
65 cents per minute for UberBlack
80 cents per minute for Uber SUV
You get a rating, too so be nice
If you thought you were the only one who got to be judgy, well, you're in for a surprise. Drivers rate riders, too, on a 1- to 5-star scale. Your rating pops up when drivers accept or deny your request. So if you've thrown up in the backseat one too many times...you might have a harder time getting a ride with uber car.
Always dispute cancellation fees don't ever pay the $5.00
You have a window of time to cancel your request before Uber charges a cancellation fee. If you happen to get a cancellation fee, head to the "Help" section of the Uber app and dispute the fee. Uber will almost always waive it, as reported by Uber addicts around the CNET office.
Don't rely on the location feature. Instead, enter the address, type in a business name or move the pin yourself.
