Free Uber Credits?
Not quite miles or points, but this is travel that we all use and who doesn’t like free money?
Uber is offering “promotions” that give you a percentage of whatever you spend at selected restaurants and other businesses. To find this, open the Uber app and scroll down on the main page. Opt in to the Visa local offers promotion. Once you do this, you’ll see a list of participating restaraunts. This changes depending on your location, so if you’d like to maximize this promotion you can choose your restaurant based on what’s in this list. As long as you pay with a credit card that is registered as a payment option in your Uber profile, then you’ll get the Uber credits whenever you checkout using that card. It usually sends me a notification seconds after I checkout!
I’ve racked up more than $50 in free uber rides from this promotion in the last several months. Since most of use either the Sapphire Reserve or Preferred, we earn 2x (Preferred) or 3x (Reserve) at the restaurant on top of these Uber credits!
This is especially good for me since I can simply opt-in and then travel and eat as I normally would and earn these credits along the way without having to go out of my way or do anything different at all! Almost zero effort.
