UPDATE: We’ve extended the entry period for our giveaway! Now you’ve got an additional week to enter. The entry period now closes April 21, 2013 at 11:59 PM EDT.

Have you heard of the car service called Uber? It’s like hailing a taxi, except instead of hailing with your hand, you hail with your phone, and instead of a yellow (or other-colored) cab rolling up, a smart black Town Car-esque vehicle is at your service. Neat, huh?

Jen Pollack Bianco thinks they’re pretty cool, and Kirsten Alana was equally impressed, and that was good enough for us. We plan on testing out Uber service in Los Angeles at the end of the month, where being shuttled around in the back of a slick black car may make you feel truly like a superstar. In the meantime, though, we’re giving away a $20 credit to Uber!

The credit is good through August 9, but you must be a new member in order to use it. You can sign up using this link. If you win, we’ll email you the promo code, you’ll simply pop it into your account, and viola!, you’ve got $20 in Uber-bucks waiting to be applied to your first ride. As a first-time user, you’ll also get $10 (when you use the link above), so that’s $30 in Uber currency waiting to be used. Awesome!

The giveaway starts today, April 5, and runs for a week, ending at 12:00 AM Eastern on April 13, meaning you should have your entry in by the night of Friday, April 12. A winner will be named and contacted within 48 hours. Got any other questions? Tweet us @racingwinds or drop us a line.

Oh, and feel free to share the link with your friends! The more, the merrier.
