UBER is offering free takeaways to fans over the festive period – but not everyone can claim.
This year, NHS workers will once more get free food from Uber in gratitude for all their hard work.
Workers will be able to claim two £10 Uber rides, plus one £10 meal through Uber Eats.
It’ll be available for all NHS staff in England, Scotland and Wales, plus Health and Social Care staff in Northern Ireland.
They’ll then be sent a promo code which they will need to add to their Uber account.
You’ll need to sign up to Uber and the Uber Eats app to get these deals if you haven’t already.
You can do this quite quickly – it’s free and both apps can be downloaded on the App Store and Google Play.
Just remember you’ll need to pay a delivery charge when ordering through Uber Eats.

The Sun has asked Uber whether there’s a limit on how many people can claim the deal, and we’ll update this story when we hear back.
Dr. Alex George, Uber campaign partner, said: “Those in the healthcare sector work tirelessly over the festive period to make sure we’re all taken care of.
“I know, from working on the ward myself, that something as simple as a free lunch or ride home can make all the difference after a stressful day.”
Andrew Brem, Uber general manager for the UK and Ireland, added: “Our brilliant NHS has seen us through a pandemic and now thousands of staff will be working through Christmas.
“We want to make sure that travel is one less thing to worry about this Christmas by offering a free ride to and from work.”
Both Uber and Uber Eats offers can be redeemed on December 24 and 25.
Other ways to get free and discounted takeaways
If you’re not an NHS employee, there are still plenty of ways to look out for free or discounted takeaways.
For one, always hunt for discount codes – the Latest Deals website has pages for Pizza Hut vouchers and delivery deals, for instance, and you can also check HotUKDeals.
Some offers can see you get up to 50% off your order – but this will depend on what deal is on at the time.
You should also check your emails for any promotions if you sign up to the newsletter, and ring up your local branch as well.
Download apps – there are often lots of freebies and codes hidden away on restaurant apps – like MyMcdonald’s, for example.
Sometimes there are 20% deals and delivery codes, and every Monday the app has a host of deals available to cash in on.
Student discount – sometimes there’s a 20% off deal on delivery if you’re a student – you just need to make sure your student card is on you.
Of course, the amount you get off will also depend on the time of year and who you’re ordering from.
Again, if you have the app, you might be able to check there.
