Cabs come quick, but who wants a grimy backseat? Car services are a great ride, but they take forever. How about the best of both worlds? Uber offers convenient on-demand rides, at your fingertips, using a mobile device. And guess what? Gizmodo readers get to ride for free.

Next time you even think about hopping in a taxi, remember that Uber is giving all Gizmodo readers a $20 ride credit toward their next trip. Simply use the promo code "UBERGIZMODO" when signing up at, to get going. Two lucky readers who enter this week's Gizaway will receive a $100 ride credit to use toward being chauffeured around at their leisure.

Uber is currently operating in San Francisco, Palo Alto, and New York, but will be expanding to Seattle, Chicago, Boston, and Washington D.C. in the near future.
