Recently on a trip to Switzerland, my Uber driver passed back a full tray of different Swiss choclates for my husband and I to choose from - definitely a 5 star kind of guy!

Anyone ever seen an Uber driver giving away something unique or amazing to their customers?

    I have a wifi hotspot with "xxxxxx5stars" as the password (xxxx=my name). I have a USB hub in the back and chargers for most phones. Dash cam forward only. And a tip jar and sign

      WiFi hotspot.  You are an overachiever.  Genius though.

      Name+"5 stars"  Brilliant.

      Great call.  Totally doing it.

      My iPhone though... I have to keep turning HotSpot off and on for it to work. so annoying.

        Honestly the only way it was feasible was because TMobile had given me a free hotspot device that ran off the cars OBD II port near the hood latch release when I opened a line and the line was 5$ for unlimited internet  payed for itself practically  not sure if they do anymore  

        What’s it say on the sign?

        Witty things like “Get tips or die trying”

      Do you keep the tip jar in up front with you?

    I once had an Uber driver that had a full cooler filled with various ice cold drinks. Pretty awesome!

    I am in LA.  Last summer took an Uber XL to Long Beach.  Saw the greatest thing ever.

    This dude literally had a hotdog steamer in his passenger seat.  He sold the dogs for $3 each.   I mean, this wasn't a joke at all.  It was one of those big ones that could hold like 20 dogs at a time.  He also had sodas in a cooler.   Totally reminded me of NYC street hot dog vendor.

    Needless to say, me and my guys bought like ten.  Way more than the fare itself.  Maybe this dude is on to something.

    This seems to be very different regionally, btw.  In the Northeast, it's not so often even Black Cars have water.  When I took it in Miami and Phoenix, every Black Car had water bottles. (In Phoenix, the driver had a cooler with drinks, sometimes soft drinks.)

    I am a driver, but I am thinking riders just wanna get to where they want to?  No?  I do provide water and charging cables, but that's it.  Oh, I bought tose mint lifesavers once, and I will admit that was popoular.

    In downtown LA, I get all kinds of stuff.  I had my driver give me a tulip (or some flower) because of some cultural thing.
