Does anyone remember what we did before Uber? We have only the faintest memories of waiting on darkened street corners, praying for an empty cab to appear. But then Uber came along and changed everything. From the way we get ourselves from dinner to a movie on a Saturday night to the way we organize business travel.

Uber has been a strong supporter of the OfficeNinjas community and we’re so excited to have them on board as a partner for #AdminWeek2015. In addition to hosting a ridiculously fun Mario Kart station at today’s Admin Bash, they’re the featured partner for today’s Flash Raffle. And it’s a good one!

Enter this raffle for FREE, and you’ll have the chance to win one of three prizes.

This is a FLASH RAFFLE! Enter by 11:59 PM PST TONIGHT to be eligible. Winners will be announced the next day here. Good luck!

Uber Prizes

Check out Uber for Business, a travel management platform that makes everything from booking airport trips to safe rides home for employees a cinch. Use the code ADMINWEEK in the Contact Us form when you enroll your company with at least 5 employees, and you’ll receive $150 in Uber ride credit!

New to Uber? You’re going to love it. Available in 300+ cities in 56 countries, Uber takes the traditional car service and makes it convenient, simple and comfortable with its location based app and friendly, reliable, professional driver partners.

Be sure to look out for tomorrow’s equally awesome giveaway!


  1. Artists in SF have a lot of materials to lug! Public transit is not ideal for transporting paintings or sculptures. Some free Uber trips would ensure that me and my crafty cohorts’ creations get where they’re going safely and efficiently!

  2. If I won Id be soooo happy! Not only cause I won something but cause I know Id have a safe ride home if and when I need it! Thats the beauty of Uber, it comes straight to you no matter where youre at…all you have to do is press the button and the driver finds you…no need to run up and down a street looking for an address, you press and a safe Uber driver swoops you up and takes you safely home!!! If I won Id be soooo excited! Pick Me Pick Me!!!

  3. I used Uber for the first time on Monday and I think it is wonderful. If I won I would certainly be happy to use it!

  4. :-) Well, over anyone else… I can’t really say but I would absolutely make EXCELLENT use of it.

  5. Because Uber is awesome! I’ve used them in several cities, including Seoul and Tokyo!

  6. If I won the Uber gift card, I would use it in a couple ways: 1) Experience Uber for myself. I would use it to take me to the airport or pick me up after a late night event (and I don’t feel like driving home), 2) Treat my boss to their first Uber experience. This way, the experience would want them to have me to use them for their business travel ground transportation needs, 3) Pick up my friends and have fun on the town (I know… crazy idea?!? What is a fun on the town for an Administrative/Office Professional?)

  7. kudos to another great partnership! My boss uses Uber in San Francisco & New York all the time and loves the simplicity of use!!! This week is all about appreciation &, acknowledgement for what we do! I would be so happy, proud and acknowledged to win this prize as an admin professional. Pick me!!!! Pick me!!!!!!!

  8. I haven’t tried it yet, but I keep hearing great things. I’m hoping to win so I can try it out! :)

  9. I love meeting all the different Uber drivers and learning about peoples lives. Each ride is a learning experience and helps me understand the city I live in a little but better- which helps me do my job better!

  10. I catch the bus to work so when I need to run errands like going to doctor’s appointments,etc., this is a great way to get to where I want to go. Saves time traveling which means more time at work. Hard to catch a taxi in downtown Honolulu.

  11. Because I love to travel and I hate paying for cab fares to the airport or parking! Uber drivers are the best. And besides, even administrative professionals deserve to be driven somewhere once in a while!

  12. Because I live in San Francisco, we don’t have cars! How else can I get around?

  13. Would LOVE to be able to use Uber for Personal travel, in addition to being a loyal, dedicated Uber Business customer. Uber just arrived in Louisiana and we’re excited about it!

  14. This would be a great perk to share with our office staff.

  15. Sounds like a great service and I would like to try it.

  16. I have never used a car service and it will be a treat to myself.

  18. Uber for Business sounds like a great option to add to my travel portfolio!

  19. I’m new to the city and to Uber and would love to explore the area in partnership with Uber’s services. Thank you!

  20. I would love the opportunity to test out the new Uber for Business product before advocating that we add this as a benefit for our employees. I find it is far easier to roll out new services and make a case for adding benefits when I’ve had an opportunity to test new products with a trial run.

  21. Uber makes life in SF without a car so much easier. It helps with both work and personal travel. I LOVE UBER!

  29. I’ve always supported Uber and promote them everywhere I travel.

  30. I just recently used Uber for the first time this past weekend while in SF, I LOVED how convenient it was and the fact that every person I referred was able to get $20 for free.

  31. I hate to drive anywhere and you wouldn’t want to be driving near me while you are on the road!

  36. I’m a huge fan of Uber. I live in the Sunset in SF, and it can get pricey taking a cab home from downtown. Enter UberPOOL. $7 to get anywhere in the city by sharing my ride? Yes please! Plus I meet interesting people along the way!

  37. It would be a great perk for the office. Many people need rides to pick up their cars when being serviced, to go out to lunch and lose our parking space, and I’m sure there are more good reasons…

  38. I only recently relocated to a new city, and would love to use Uber to help me get around and explore!

  40. If I won the Uber gift card I would use it to treat the other admins I work with to get home from the office when we are working late. Also my family is visiting from a small town in FL where they don’t yet have Uber so would be great to show them how an app can change their world!!

  41. I am directionally challenged and my husband is use-the-brake-pedal challenged, so Uber could be a great asset to our marriage! :-)

  42. I book Uber all the time for our execs, but would LOVE a gift card for myself to use it!

  43. Our Board of Directors loves Uber!

  44. I haven’t used Uber yet, but it sounds like it’s just what we need for rides to/from the airport for visiting business people and staff traveling out of town who don’t want to leave their car at the airport.

  45. I never win anything, but am still going to try because this prize is so awesome. I live in diamond heights, the hill of hills and no transportation around. Also the only one in my house of 5 that doesn’t have a car, so I have to use uber all the time! I am grateful for uber because getting home from late work days or events without them would be unbearable :)

  46. Uber has saved me more than once when I had to get somewhere fast. Super convenient to know a car is only 1 or 2 minutes away!

  60. Admin Pros will be keeping Uber busy tonight in San Francisco. Hope to see you all at the OfficeNinjas Admin Bash!

  62. To win this would allow me to provide safe travel options for my bosses in the evenings as well as traveling to/from events in style.

  63. I would love to win because (1) I would treat some other teammates (Admins) to a ride to have some fun and maybe they will use the services for their bosses once they see how awesome it is; and (2) I want to treat my boss(es) to a ride someplace so they can see how I am looking out for them on their trips!

  65. Others in my office use Uber regularly, particularly when traveling out-of-town and also within SF as it can be more expedient than getting out of the garage, navigating traffic, then trying to park. It can also be more cost effective in that scenario. It’s my turn to try!

  71. Getting to the 3rd Annual officeNinjas Admin Bash this evening will be my first time using Uber. Winning one of the drawings will definitely encourage me to use it more often.

  72. I’ve never had a bad experience using Uber. They are always on time, friendly and reliable drivers. The concept is genious, I will never use a taxi again!

  73. Taxis are so unreliable at our office. During rush hour it’s hit or miss if the person who needs a ride isn’t standing outside. Uber has always come when requested. Very reliable especially when you need to get to SFO International Airport.

  74. Would love to use this service! Seattle certainly loves Uber!

  75. Whoo-hoo Uber! Although any ninja worth his/her salt deserves a fabulous prize in your daily giveaways, Uber is uber special to our office. Fishermen come and go with the tides of nature so here in Seattle–Uber is king!

  84. My boss LOVES Uber and uses it all the time. I, however, have never used Uber. If I win, I’ll have a chance to use it!!

  85. Still fighting to get Uber in the Boise area. Would love to try it!

  86. LOVE Uber. Been using it since it first launched in its native city SF Bay Area. True story … Prior to Uber, one of my most cherished Executives (and most down to earth guy you’ll ever meet) took a cab to the airport. While en-route, the cab driver started ranting about space aliens, he then proceeded to punch himself in the right leg…while DRIVING on the freeway. Needless to say, I don’t trust cabbies anymore. I could write a book with all the stories of bad cab drivers/cab experiences!
    I’ve waited for Uber to offer an add-on for business users, even an option to pre-order a car 30-45 minutes before the pick-up time would be so helpful. Can’t wait to check out the new service. Happy OfficeNinja Day, everyone!

  87. Traffic is becoming worse and worse here in the Dallas area and it makes me crazy! Leaving the driving to someone else would be great for my stress level!

  88. I’d love to find a way to make traveling easier!

    If I win the Uber Flash Raffle I will be able to take the train to work every day and use the Uber credits to get from the train station to my office!

(there’s no parking downtown) Please pick me!

  90. I should win because I’m looking for a new way to make travel easier for my supervisors and myself.

  91. I should to try it out – we’ve never done it and always relied on other people driving or city pool. But it would be cool to do it on days when we have meetings and it’s late and we can uber it.

  92. I am always booking Uber for others, it would be nice to be able to turn the tables for ME! :)

  93. I don’t have a car and love using Uber to get around. Winning this raffle would allow me to Uber even more, which would be awesomesauce!!! :)

  94. I’d really like to do something special for my bosses. They’re very good to me and forgive my mistakes. I guess over the years, I’ve made my share. Uber will make me shine and help make travel seamless. That’s what I’m looking for.

  109. Why you should win the Uber Flash Raffle? Because I LOVE Uber. They provide quick service and I’m ready to go on vacation so I need safe, reliable service. :)

  110. Can’t wait to try Uber during my travels – this card would go a long way to helping me do just that!

  122. Uber is Super! On a personal note, it has saved me a lot of money, as for the new business option, I’m just about to present it my leadership team.

  123. Uber would be great for conferences in other offices!

  124. I’m always looking for good deals when I or any of my coworkers travel out of state for conferences. This would be a good option in helping w/ travel plans.

  125. Working virtually, I don’t get out of the home office much – so I pledge to use a gift Uber ride to travel to networking events in my area and get more connected while taking my business to the next level.
