Has Uber Found A Way Into Vegas?
Uber has partnered with The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas to bring you what it’s calling #VEGASONDEMAND which is basically a special package deal from Los Angeles to Las Vegas for a special “24-hour VIP experience”:
- An UberBLACK ride for up to 4 people
- A one-night stay in a Terrace Studio at The Cosmopolitan
- Complimentary VIP access to Marquee Nightclub (*see below)
- A ride back to L.A. 24 hours later
The entire experience costs $1200, which means that it’s only $300 per person when you fare split four ways. Is this a good deal? I’ll let you decide.
Ok, I’m In L.A. And We’re Ready To Head To Vegas! Now What?
- Open the Uber app for iPhone, Android, or Blackberry.
- Between January 31-March 1, 2014, request the “VEGAS” option via your app.
- An UberBLACK ride (you might get a town car or an SUV) will roll up to your doorstep and you’ll be on your way to an “epic 24 hours in Las Vegas.”
- It’s available every day of the week although Marquee may not be open for that benefit!* Once you request the VEGAS Uber, The Cosmopolitan receives an email about the trip and will call you directly to confirm room reservation, says the Uber blogger.
Some of the details from the Uber Blog here include the following:
*Marquee Nightclub is open Friday, Saturday, and Monday each week. To get on the complimentary VIP list, please provide the names in your party at check-in. Each trip must have one pick up location- additional pick ups will be billed. You must adhere to 24 hours once your driver hits ‘End Trip’ in Las Vegas to guarantee a ride back. A member of your party must be at least 21 years of age to check-in and there will be a $150 refundable deposit for any incidentals upon arrival.
Per Uber: “Contest Winner must be at least 21 years old and will be announced on February 7th at noon! We’ll notify the winner via email with instructions on how to redeem.For more contest rules, click here.”
Will Cosmo have rooms guaranteed for this event? Super Bowl weekend (I’m still in awe)!?
I wonder what the driver(s) gets for this trip!? A free room too!?
