Just a little reminder before the weekend hits on how to get a safe ride home ... quite possibly for FREE.

Since this weekend marks the first official weekend ridesharing services are available here in the Capital Region on this weeks Free Advice Friday we thought we would remind you to utilize them!

We also tested out this not exactly legit ride sharing service called Qber that didn't end up working out to well for us ... but we can tell you first hand that the actual apps Uber and Lyft work amazingly from from the palm of your hand. Not only will you know exactly how much your ride will cost but how long it will be until your ride arrives! You can actually track it's progress from the app throughout your whole ride. Plus, you have all of you drivers info in the palm of your hand. The best part though is you don't have to worry about carrying cash on you because you set everything up ahead of time on the app and it stores all of your info for you!

FYI, most first time users can get their first ride FREE! Feel free to use my codes to get you started! You can click HERE for Uber or HERE for Lyft using the code Q103CANDACE … once you get your FREE ride and start using the apps you can create your own referral codes and earn more free rides my referring your friends!
