One of the best credit cards for Uber is the American Express Platinum card. You’ll get $15 in Uber credits every month and another $20 in December, which can rack up to $200 per year for both Uber rides and Uber Eats in the U.S.
Up to $200 annual Uber credit – redeemable through Uber Cash by downloading the Uber App for iOS or Android and adding your card as a method of payment. 75,000 bonus points when you spend $5,000 in the first 6 months. 5 points / $1 spent for flights booked through airlines (on up to $500,000 per year) and hotels booked at Amextravel.com. Can use points toward Uber rides. Annual statement credits up to $200 toward incidental airline fees on a qualifying airline of your choice. $550 annual fee. Good credit needed.
100,000 miles for spending $20,000 in the first 12 months or 50,000 miles for spending $3,000 in the first 3 months. 2 miles per $1 spent on all purchases. Can redeem miles for recent Uber rides with Capital One’s Purchase Eraser at a rate of 1 cent per point, within 90 days from the date your travel purchase posts to your account. $95 annual fee. Good credit needed.
Ultimately, keep in mind that travel rewards cards often let you use your points or miles toward Uber purchases.
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.
Amex Uber credits are currently offered to Platinum and Centurion cardholders, who can earn up to $200 annually in statement credits by riding with Uber or using Uber Eats. In 2021, Amex Platinum, Gold, and Green cardholders will all enjoy additional Uber benefits. The Gold card in particular will be decked out with new Uber rewards.… read full answer
Amex Platinum, Gold, and Green will all come with a year-long complimentary Uber Eats Pass membership, starting in early 2021. This perk offers unlimited free Uber delivery and 5% off orders over $15. Cardholders will need to activate this benefit by enrolling in the Uber Eats Pass Membership with their Amex card before the end of 2021.
In addition to the Uber Eats Pass membership, American Express Gold cardholders will be able to get $120 per year in Uber Cash. This new benefit is like the current Centurion and Platinum benefit, with the main difference being that Gold cardholders will be credited $10 a month as opposed to the Centurion and Platinum cards’ $15 per month and $35 in December. To activate Uber rewards, Centurion, Platinum, and Gold cardholders need to add their Amex card to the Uber/Uber Eats app and use Uber Cash for purchases.
No, there aren’t any official Chase Sapphire Reserve Uber rewards or benefits, but Chase Sapphire Reserve can still help cardholders save on Uber rides. The Chase Sapphire Reserve card gives $300 per year in statement credits to cover travel purchases, including Uber. Cardholders also earn 3 points / $1 on travel purchases, which applies to Uber, too. Those points are worth 1.5 cents each when used to book travel on the … read full answerChase Ultimate Rewards site.
The Chase Sapphire Reserve card also offers some secondary perks that may benefit both Uber riders and drivers. For example, travel accident insurance covers Uber rides up to $500,000 for death or serious injury during transport. If you’re an Uber driver, you’ll have access to roadside dispatch. Covered services include towing, jump starts, fuel delivery, tire changes, and lockout assistance. The service is available 24/7, and you’re covered for up to the first $50 spent on service calls. There’s a maximum of 4 service calls per year.
You do have options when it comes to credit cards with Uber benefits though. For example, the American Express Platinum card gives up to $200 annual Uber credits for Uber rides or eats orders in the U.S. as a perk.
The Uber Credit Card’s credit score requirement was “good” for good approval odds, but this card is not available anymore.
The Uber Credit Card’s credit score requirement was in line with what it takes to get other Barclays credit cards; they all require at least good or excellent credit. But your credit score isn’t the only thing Barclays will consider when evaluating your application, either. You must be at least 18 years old to apply for the Uber Card (or any credit card). They’ll also take your income into account. If you’re under 21, you must have independent income to qualify—i.e., not someone else’s shared income. And they won’t approve you for a card if you’ve defaulted with them in the past.… read full answer
