A friend drives Uber in TX and encouraged me to sign up because I recently lost my job, and there was a sign up bonus. So, he gave me his referral code and I signed up. After a couple of weeks he contacted me, again encouraging me to get 20 trips in 30 days to get a $210 bonus. Once I hit the 20 trip mark I got a text from him congratulating me on earning the bonus. I also received an email from Uber congratulating me on hitting the 20 trip mark and surpassing the "guarantee" amount. Upon going back through my emails and contacting support, I now understand that in KCMO there is no actual sign up "bonus". Only a "guarantee" of making $210 within 20 trips. My friend in TX was very upset to hear this as he knows how I was about to use it towards a car payment cuz I'm months behind and I'm trying not to lose it. I realize Uber covered themselves by explaining the "guarantee" in an email, but it seems misleading to use the word "bonus" in any links on the internet. Just wondering if anyone else feels duped by this "incentive" to sign up.
