The Chase Freedom/Uber discount was for a free first trip, up to $30. The discount only worked if you had never used Uber previously. All you had to do to receive the free ride was download the Uber app, enter the promo code “chaseuber” and use your Chase card as your payment method.
While that discount has expired, Chase Freedom sometimes has “Local Commuter Transportation” as one of its rotating bonus categories. When it does, ride-sharing is included so you can earn up to 5% cash back on Uber and Lyft rides. If you don’t want to hold out hope for a possible future bonus category, though, there are still other credit cards that can help you save on Uber.
The two best credit cards for saving on Uber are the Amex Blue Cash Preferred and Wells Fargo Propel cards. The Blue Cash Preferred card offers 3% cash back on public transport, including Uber, taxis, subways, and buses. Blue Cash Preferred cardholders can also earn a $250 signup bonus after spending $1,000 in the first three months. With the Wells Fargo Propel card, you’ll earn 3% cash back on Uber rides and UberEATS orders, as well as other travel and transit purchases. The Wells Fargo Propel card also has a signup bonus of 30,000 points once you spend $3,000 in the first three months.
