Slug & Lettuce, the Stonegate-owned brand, has announced a new partnership with Uber, with the former providing £15 off consumer’s 1st ride with the latter over the summer.

As part of their 2016 Summer JAM campaign, the new partnership will run from the last May bank holiday for the duration of the summer months.

Consumers will need to use the code SUMMERJAM within a variety of sites*.

The bar chain said it would be working closely with Uber in order to maximise visibility of the new partnership with the logos and code being endorsed across all printed POS and digital communications as well as focusing on the larger groups.

Beth Macdonald, head of marketing at Slug & Lettuce, said: “Partnering with a leading brand like Uber is such a great opportunity for us and provides all of our customers with an affordable and safe alternative method to get home after a night of celebrating.“

Oliver Hadden-Paton, UK marketing manager at Uber, said: “We are absolutely delighted to partner with the Slug and Lettuce to help get their customers get from A to B safely. Whether it’s heading for post work drinks or a bite to eat, this partnership is a brilliant opportunity for consumers to take advantage of a free first trip in London but also across the UK.”
