    Got an email yesterday from Uber regarding their flat fare package for Vegas. Basically you purchase a package upfront for an activation fee ($2.50 for 5 rides, $5 for 10 rides, $10 for 20 rides, $20 for 40 rides) and then you have 30 days to use those rides. When you purchase a package, flat fares are automatically applied for all UberPool and UberX rides until the total number of flat fare rides has been used up. The flat fares for Vegas are $2.99 for UberPool and $4.99 for UberX. It's a great deal and the flat fare zone spans across a wide area.

    https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1oMQerE78Mf4DlXVZ5dahK5FR-N8&ll=36.12733953018018,-115.08419005000002&z=10

    I went ahead and purchased the $5 for 10 rides package, as I imagine I'll be using it quite a bit this weekend. To be able to go to the M Resort for only $2.99 is an amazing deal! Plus, the 30 days overlaps with Spring Fling weekend, so even if I don't use them all this weekend, I'll still have another chance.

    Wow! Does this include McCarran too? I'd be shocked if it did, but it's huge area otherwise.

    That's a helluva deal.

    I'm guessing it's invite only?

    Hmmm I didn't think about it being invite only. Let me see what I can find out.

    Someone try this link and see if it gets you to the page where you can sign up.

    https://www.uber.com/info/plus/lasvegas/?origin=email&city_id=15

    I also did just see something when I searched for "flat fares" on the website, where it said that the flat fares will only apply to fares under $20 for UberPool and under $25 for UberX. But then if it is over those two amounts, you will be charged the flat fare price, plus the dollar amount over the cap. Still a great deal!

    I will use it tonight at McCarran and see what happens.

    Just remember if you sign up under the 30 day offer (if it works, that is yet to be determined), that the 30 days will start from the day you sign up. So, if you want it to work through the end of SF, might want to wait til say, April 2nd.

    Wah wah. Sorry guys.


    Really surprised I even got invited since I never use Uber in Vegas, only Lyft.

    That would make a great off strip casino/bar crawl day.

    Cosmo to downtown
    Downtown to red rock
    Red rock to M Resort
    M resort to GVR
    GVR back to Cosmo

    And all for $27.50

    Just got another email about flat fares. Looks like they've gone up a $1 each, but still a phenomenal deal!

    Hope someone else gets it this time!

    Going to bump this--the same flat fare deal is back. Got an email a couple days ago--couldn't find a public link that works. Going to use it when I get to Vegas on the 17th!

    I'd definitely recommend this to anyone going during EDC as it'll take the sting off surge pricing within the rest of Vegas (though the Speedway is explicitly excluded from flat fare rides).

    FWIW, I had to open the link on my desktop to buy the pass. When I opened the app, it said none were available.

    I got the email too.... but with no Vegas trips in my near future, can't use it this time!

    Good luck to those trying!
