Uber Me, Baby.

Hubby is not all that technically savvy when it comes to iPhones.  I mean the man calls “Apps” Applications.  Yes, the full word – Applications.  To credit him he can run circles around an Excel sheet like nobody’s business. {When I switched our PC to a MAC and loaded Numbers – Mac’s version of Excel – I hadn’t seen him that disappointed since the last episode of Lost.}  But “Applications?” Not so much.  There’s really only one that he swears by and it’s Uber.  The Uber app. connects you with a driver at the tap of a button so you don’t have to wait around for a cab.  Hubby “Ubers” so much he uses it as a verb.  One time he was at a Patriot’s game an hour away and there was such a huge line waiting for the train he “Ubered” himself home.  (That driver was psyched, I’m sure.)  In the mornings he’ll often forgo taking the bus to work (a longer route) and “Uber” himself there so he can spend more time with the kids.  Miss P. likes to run to the front door to greet the driver which is pretty adorable.  I’ll admit Uber is a nice little offering but until now, it didn’t really fit into my world.

Enter UberXL.  Starting today, users can request an uberXL car that sits six passengers, including KIDS, safely.  I’m constantly wondering how I’m going to get places with kids sans car in the city.  Not so much home from the Patriot’s game per say but places like the airport (certainly not paying for my car to sit there while we are away), or events where it’s impossible (or too expensive) to park your car.  And here’s the fun part…Download the Uber App. on your phone and use the code “Mommyhood” in your app.  First time users will receive $30 off your first ride.  Or, sign up using this link on your computer – UBER ME, BABY

As of right now UberXL is only available in Boston but Chicago is rumored to be next and with Uber in 58 cities across the US, maybe it will be coming to your ‘hood soon!
