Xbox offers prizes and free short rides through Uber for Super Bowl XLVIII weekend

By Xbox Wire Staff
Xbox is teaming up with Uber for the big game this weekend, offering free short rides to fans in downtown Manhattan on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Jan. 30 – Feb. 1. Xbox is also giving away* prizes to every pickup, including two tickets to Super Bowl XLVIII for one lucky winner.

A fleet of Xbox One-branded SUVs will be roaming between 42nd St. and Houston St. from 7 – 11 p.m. ET, the busiest travel times in the city. If you hop in one of our luxury Xbox One SUVs, not only will you get a short free ride, you’ll also get a prize giveaway, with the chance to receive the grand prize of two tickets to Sunday’s Super Bowl XLVIII! If you’re the lucky winner, you’ll be handed your tickets right there in the car. Other prizes include Xbox One consoles, popular Xbox titles like “Madden 25” and “Forza Motorsport 5,” Xbox swag and NFLShop.com gift cards.

Here’s how it works: If you’re between 42nd St. and Houston St., Hudson River to East River on Thursday – Saturday, Jan. 30 – Feb. 1 from 7 – 11 p.m. ET, and you open your Uber app, you’ll automatically see an option to call on one of the Xbox One fleet SUVs for a pickup. You can also track the Xbox One SUV fleet via the ‘Nexus’ markers moving around the map of the city in the Uber app. Rides in the Xbox One fleet are limited to an average of 20 minutes, but every ride recipient will receive an Xbox One prize giveaway.

* NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.  Open to individuals 18 years and older located in Midtown Manhattan.  Open 1/30/14 - 2/1/14 from 7:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m each day.  See Official Rules for details. Void where prohibited.
