Partnering with Capital One to Launch Payment Rewards
When you Uber, chances are you don’t think about your payment method very often. After all, you can hop in and hop out without ever having to pull out your wallet.
But sometimes how you pay for your Uber rides can make a difference — and today that’s certainly the case. We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Capital One® to bring a new, rewarding experience to riders. Now, every 10th ride is free (up to $15) when you pay with a Capital One Quicksilver® or QuicksilverOne® card through March 2017.
And to give you more visibility and control over these benefits, we’re introducing Payment Rewards — a way to discover, track, and redeem rewards right in the Uber app. Learn more.
Here’s how the new Payment Rewards in-app experience works:
Discover rewards: Access Payment Rewards from the payment menu in the app. Tap Unlock ride discounts to learn more about our first benefit, powered by Capital One. Don’t have a Quicksilver card? Apply now!
Track progress: Once you have a Quicksilver card on file, you’ll see a progress bar showing how close you are to earning your next free ride, both when requesting a ride and in the payment menu.
Redeem rewards: See when you have a free ride available and control when you use it. If you don’t want to use it right then, simply tap Save for Later.
We’re always looking for ways to make riding with Uber even more rewarding. Stay tuned for more from Payment Rewards in the future.
P.S.— Make sure you have the latest version of the Uber app to track your progress and redeem your free rides!
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
