Worked great for me this evening. Touched down at Logan Airport, unusually cold weather for Boston so I didn't want to do public transportation to the friend's house I'm staying at. No UberX vehicles available Friday 9:00pm (would have been about $30). UberBLACK available at $61, just under the $65 covered by this promo. Easy choice.

I expect that the driver got the same payment out of that $61 that he would have otherwise (i.e., $61 minus Uber's usual percentage cut). If anybody knows otherwise for certain, let us know.
