One of the best credit cards for Uber is the Uber Credit Card from Barclays Bank. You’ll get 4 points per $1 spent on Uber Eats and 2 points per $1 on Uber rides. 100 points are worth $1 toward any Uber ride. And the card doesn’t have an annual fee either.
Amex Platinum is another good credit card for Uber, offering $200 in free Uber rides per year. Chase Sapphire Reserve gives you a $300 annual travel credit, which you can use to pay for Uber rides. And Capital One Venture rewards you with 2 miles on every $1 spent, which works out to 2% back when you redeem for Uber rides.
HERE ARE THE BEST CREDIT CARDS FOR UBER:
Uber Credit Card (Barclays): 10,000 bonus points for spending $500 in the first 90 days, worth $100 toward Uber rides. 4 points per $1 spent on UberEATS, restaurants, fast food restaurants and bars. 3 points per $1 on airfare, hotels and vacation home rentals. 2 points per $1 on eligible online purchases, including Uber rides, online shopping, and video/music streaming. 1 point per $1 on everything else. $50 credit for online subscription services when you spend $5,000 on your card in a year. No annual fee. Good credit needed.
Amex Platinum: $200 annual Uber credit. 60,000 bonus points when you spend $5,000 in the first 3 months. 5 points per $1 for flights booked through airlines and travel booked at amextravel.com. Can use points toward Uber rides. $200 annual airline fee credit. $550 annual fee. Good credit needed.
Chase Sapphire Reserve: $300 annual travel credit usable toward Uber rides. 50,000 bonus points for spending $4,000 in the first 3 months. 3 points per $1 on travel and dining, 1 on everything else. Points worth 1.5 cents each when redeemed for Uber rides. $100 application fee credit for TSA Pre-Check or Global Entry. $450 annual fee. Excellent credit needed.
Capital One Venture: 50,000 bonus miles for spending $3,000 in the first 3 months. 2 miles per $1 on all purchases. Can redeem miles for recent Uber rides with Capital One’s Purchase Eraser at a rate of 1 cent per point. $95 annual fee waived the first year. Good credit needed.
As you can see, travel rewards cards often let you use your points or miles toward Uber purchases. And the Uber Credit Card also rewards you well for travel. Which card you choose really depends on what else besides Uber rides you plan to use your card for and how big of an annual fee you’re willing to pay.
Aside from the obvious Uber Visa Card, I think the best is the Citi Double Cash Credit Card, which will give you 1% back when you first pay for your ride, then another 1% when you pay the card off at the end of the month. Since Uber is considered a travel expense, the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card is also very good, because users receive 2 miles for every dollar spent.
Obviously, the Uber designated credit card is the best one. That being said, I know Chase Sapphire Reserve also does 4x points with Uber. 3x because they consider Uber as travelling and an extra set of points because you're using a digital wallet. Not half bad, if you ask me.
