Hail a Cabbie from Newcastle and Taxi Magic!

Newcastle Cabbie Ale

Today, finding yourself a Cabbie takes on a slightly different meaning. That’s because we’re joining up with Newcastle to announce their new winter seasonal, Cabbie Black Ale. Taxis and beer are our favorite combination short of Taxi Magic and smartphones, so we’re psyched to join with Newcastle to spread the word.

To ensure you can enjoy a Cabbie and get home safely, we’re working with Newcastle to provide over $1 million in discounted taxi fares this holiday season. If you’re 21 or older, you can receive $5 in Magic Credits off your next Taxi Magic ride when you input the code “CABBIE” in the Taxi Magic app for iPhone and Android. This code will work in over 60 markets where Taxi Magic supports mobile payment within the app. Even better, the Cabbie code will unlock a easter egg mode in our app that will show your Newcastle love and make you very thirsty.

Secret Cabbie Takeover Mode

Newcastle Cabbie is a delicious black ale inspired by the cab drivers of Newcastle, England. Cabbie will be available in stores and on tap through January 2014.  So get out there, try some Cabbie, and then tap that app to get safe, discounted Taxi Magic home.

As always, if you have issues using applying or using your Magic Credits, you can email support@taximagic.com and one of our Wizards will make your problem disappear.

Using Magic Credits

At Taxi Magic, we want everyone to have the Magic touch when it comes to getting a taxi. To help us spread that Magic, we introduced Magic Credits to give riders money off of their Taxi Magic rides.

Our Taxi Magic team and our taxi partners are busy releasing Magic Credit codes into the wild! If you have what it takes to catch one of these codes, here’s what you do to make it work:

Register Your Credit Card

In order to use Magic Credits, you must have a credit card on file in the app. Magic Credits will automatically deduct money from your final fare total when you pay for your ride in the app.

Enter the Code

After you enter the code, the amount will appear on your “Promos and Credits” screen.

Note: If your ride is less than the amount of your Credits, the remaining Magic Credits will roll over to your next ride.

Ride On

The next time you ride and pay with your credit card in the app, the Magic Credits will be applied to your final ride total. You still need to enter the final fare and tip – we’ll do the rest!

Be sure to note the expiration date on Magic Credit codes. Use them before you lose them!

Now, go forth and capture your Magic Credits!
