Email insights: For Uber, it’s Madden 16 Game Day

in Apolitical/Top Headlines by

For the popular ride-sharing service Uber, Monday is Game Day.

Uber and EA Sports team up to deliver free copies of the world’s most popular video game, Madden NFL 16, for Xbox One. That’s a full day before the game hits shelves for everyone else.

In an email from Uber, the special promotion, co-sponsored by the National Football League Players Association, will be open to Madden fans in all 32 NFL cities. Supplies are limited, but the entry is straightforward: in Tampa, simply open the Uber app; Enter MADDENTPA to unlock the MADDEN NFL option; request MADDEN NFL  starting at 11 a.m., (if a special vehicle is available) a free copy of Madden NFL 16 will be routed to your location. (In Jacksonville, the code is MADDENJAX; for Miami, it’s MADDENMIA).

Uber’s offer is for a limited time on a first-come, first serve basis. Unsurprisingly, demand will be very high and not everyone will win a game.

To make the contest even more interesting, Uber will provide one Tampa rider with the ultimate Xbox One prize pack: a console and copy of the game delivered by Derrick Brooks, the former Tampa Bay Buc and Pro Football Hall of Famer.
