What Happened At The Smart x Uber Event

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you would have seen that I attended the Smart x Uber event last September 8. (also known as the night of Carmaggedon)

(I know, OMG, so delayed!)

http://instagram.com/p/7XWRjdie0p/embed/Well, to make the story short, there are…

Three (3) things you need to know about the Smart x Uber partnership:

#1 — Smart is giving away two (2) FREE Uber rides – worth P300 each – to Metro Manila-based subscribers.

However, this is only until end of this month, September 30 (I KNOW, I KNOW, I’M SORRY!) so hurry and claim your free Uber rides right now!

To avail of your free Uber rides, simply visit www.smart.com.ph/uber and register your Smart number. Upon successful registration, you shall receive a Promo Code which you can input on the Uber app before requesting a ride.

#2 — Uber rides will now come with FREE in-car Smart WiFi!

This means that as long as you’re in an Uber car (for now only for Uber Black vehicles, but will be rolled to other Uber vehicles in the near future), you’ll be able to experience the #SmartLife while commuting through the metro.

You can now be productive even when you’re stuck in Manila’s horrendous traffic! Or at least be entertained by watching movies on iFlix, or listening to music on Spinnr.

#3 — For Uber partner drivers, Smart is set to introduce exclusive voice and data packages, bundles and add-ons, as well as offer special promotions and discounts.

So there, you go. That’s it in a nutshell.

And for those interested, here are some photos from the event.

That night was hosted by the gorgeous and funny Bianca Valerio. It was my first time to experience her hosting and she was hilariously witty! Looking forward to more events hosted by her.


A few words by Mr. Ariel Fermin, executive vice president and head for consumer business for both PLDT and Smart.


Also by Laurence Cua, Uber General Manager for Philippines.
