He Kept Getting Notifications From Uber for a Discount That Didn’t Exist, but When They Refused to Admit Their Mistake, He Took $8 Worth of Revenge

A man recently went online to tell of the satisfyingly petty revenge he took against a major app after they repeatedly offered him a discount that didn’t exist. Here’s what happened.

“We begin our story with me,” the man explained. “I’m a regular dude with an Amex card that gives me a $10 credit every month to purchase goods through Uber’s companies.”

He also uses Uber Eats

“As such, I generally use UberEats once a month when I’m feeling lazy, both because of the credit and because it brings order totals down to about what they normally are in-store.”

He kept getting notifications

The man regularly received push notifications from Uber about deals. He’d use these when spending his $10 credit. He recently began receiving constant notifications about a “40% off up to $15” offer.

But there was a problem. Usually, the notifications he received related to participating restaurants, but every time he tried clicking on this particular offer, it would open the app but fail to show any such offer in the promotions section.

It became irritating

This happened about five times, and the man was starting to get annoyed about it. He began screenshotting the offer and saving his notification history for Uber.

The man also decided to try using the offer and ordered some food from the restaurant of his choice. But the final price didn’t have the 40% discount.

He complained

The man decided to take his complaint to Uber support, who quickly refunded him the difference.

The offer kept coming through, so he decided to try using it again. And, of course, he was charged full price. He went back to Uber support, but this time they weren’t as helpful.

They ignored his proof

The agent denied that the man had been given a 40% off promo offer, even though he showed him screenshots of it. “Okay, if that’s how you want to play it,” the man thought.

The man had paid for his order using Amex. He called their support line and explained how Uber kept offering him discounts and then not applying them. Amex told him that they could initiate a chargeback for the $8 he was out.

Petty, but worthwhile

The man knew it was petty to chase $8 from Uber, but within three hours, he’d received his $8 back, plus $5 credit and an apology. He also stopped receiving Uber notifications for a while.

The internet responded

People loved the man’s petty act of revenge. “Go you!” said one. “It probably cost you more in your time, but hey, if they wanted to play, they picked the wrong person.”

“Basically, they just wanted a fight,” agreed another.
