Receive $15 off your first ride when paying with PayPal
Black car and taxi service Uber has just updated its app to now accept PayPal in addition to Google Wallet. The PayPal payment option is available in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and the U.S. at the moment, and gives you yet another way to pay for your car rides alongside Google Wallet and a traditional credit or debit card.
To encourage you to connect your PayPal account, Uber is also offering a one-time $15 discount on your first ride when paying with PayPal before November 28th — not a bad deal. You can download the latest version of the Uber app at the Play Store link above, and connect your PayPal account under "Payment" in the settings.
