You can get $20 in Uber credits by booking through Facebook Messenger. Existing users can claim the credit as well. I had to download the latest version of the Messenger app to see the new options.
The new Uber in Messenger feature can be found by clicking on the car icon or finding "Transportation" in the three-dot "more" menu below where you write your messages. Either of those actions will open Uber's Request Ride option where you can add your pick up location, destination, and car type.
...
Everyone who uses Messenger Transportation will get a $20 Uber credit. It's rare for Uber to hand out these kinds of free credits to people who are already users, but somehow Facebook convinced it to create a big incentive to use Messenger Transportation.

Open Messenger On Mobile Device
Open a previous conversation with someone
Look for the Car Icon, it will be at the bottom with all the other icons, Text, Picture, Gallery, Smiley Face Etc.
If it is not there click on the box with three white dots to the far right of all those icons.
Click On Transportation
Link your Uber Account
Uber will message you informing you of your free $20 credit

IF THE ICON DOES NOT SHOW UP FOR YOU UNINSTALL FACEBOOK MESSENGER AND REINSTALL IT. (seems to work in Android, any success in iOS?)

Valid in: San Francisco, Boston, Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami

Figured it out, tap the car at the bottom in any conversation and link your accounts. It's only for your first ride up to $20.

Tried your suggestion and don't see Transportation listed anywhere.

I have the following versions:

45.0 FaceBook
52.0 FaceBook Messenger

EDIT: Found it under Location. Had to restart phone for some reason.
Trying to log into acct via my FB credentials and all I see is a white screen. Can't log in to claim the $20. Figuring it out now.

great - so in addition to every personal detail FB already has on you, now they can know exactly where you are going and when.
