Popular Twitch streamer and Fortnite player Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins’ promotion with Uber Eats reached its maximum amount of redemptions – in the span of a single day.

Ninja partnered with sponsor Uber Eats to bring his fans a 25% discount on their orders using the code NINJANOMS.

The discount wasn’t just limited to the United States, either. The promotion was available worldwide, and fans sent in pictures of their goodies to the streamer in celebration of the deal.

While the deal was initially supposed to extend to Tuesday, September 25, it didn’t end up making it that far.

The discount saw a quick end, thanks to its overwhelming success. Uber Eats posted the development on their Twitter account, where they revealed that the promo was so lucrative, it had reached its maximum amount of redemptions.

While existing users can no longer take part in the promotion, new users of the service can still redeem the discount using code EATSNINJA.

The promotion was presented in the form of a challenge to the streamer: for every kill he took in Fortnite, he would likewise win fans 1% off of their Uber Eats orders. However, the promotion had a time limit – Ninja could only take part in the challenge from the moment he ordered Quizno’s through the service until the food arrived at his door.

Within that time frame, Ninja won fans a total of 25% off their orders, and the service has already been used to its maximum capacity.

No announcement has been made regarding an end date for code EATSNINJA – but the promotion could likely end on September 25.

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
