The Uber Credit Card’s credit score requirement was 700+ (good credit) for high approval odds, but this card is not available anymore.
The Uber Credit Card doesn’t mean, though, that you’re not out of options. You can check out some of the best credit cards for Uber, currently available on the market, to see which one suits your needs better.
Here’s more info about the Uber Credit Card requirements:
The Uber Credit Card’s credit score requirement was in line with what it takes to get other Barclays (the card’s issuer) 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 a 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. Also, they won’t approve you for a card if you’ve defaulted with them in the past.
No, there are no Uber Credit Card promotions at the moment. The card used to offer $100 In Uber Cash after spending $500 on purchases in the first 90 days of account opening. But this offer is no longer available as the Uber Credit Card has been discontinued. Current cardholders can still earn 1 - 5% cash back on purchases.… read full answer
However, there are other cards that feature Uber promotions or other general perks that can be used toward Uber.
This card offers up to $200 in Uber credits each year for Uber rides or eats in the U.S. (up to $15 per month and $20 in December). You can redeem the credit by adding your card as a payment method to the Uber app.
It gives you $300 annual travel credit as a statement credit reimbursement for your travel purchases, including Uber rides. And once you’ve spent the first $300 on travel purchases each year, you also get 3 points / $1 spent on certain travel purchases (including Uber), and 1 point / $1 on everything else.
It doesn’t feature any promotions specifically designed for Uber, but it offers $300 statement credit for spending $3,000 in the first 6 months. On top of that, you earn 6% cash back on U.S. supermarkets purchases (up to $6,000 spent per year, then 1% thereafter) and many U.S streaming services. You also get 3% cash back on U.S. gas stations and transit, including Uber, taxis, subways and buses and 1% on all other purchases. Cash back is paid out in the form of statement credits.
It doesn’t have any Uber-specific promotions, but its initial bonus coupled with its earn rate of 2 miles / $1 spent on all purchases makes it a great general purpose travel card. New cardholders earn 75,000 miles for spending $4,000 in the first 3 months. Miles can be redeemed for recent Uber rides through Capital One’s Purchase Eraser at a rate of 1 cent per point within 90 days from the date the purchase posts to your account.
You could pay for Uber rides with a debit card. But if you do, you’ll lose out on all the rewards that credit cards offer. Even if the rewards aren’t Uber-specific, it’ll still be worthwhile to get something back for every dollar you spend.
Capital One SavorOne and the Uber Visa card are cash back cards with high earning rates in select categories. SavorOne offers 3% cash back on dining, entertainment purchases, streaming services and at grocery stores. The Uber Visa card gives you 4% cash back on dining, but only 1% back on entertainment purchases. The Uber Visa card also gets you 3% on hotel and airfare bookings and 2% for online purchases. Each card earns you 1% cash back on all other purchases.… read full answer
Both cards do not charge an annual fee or foreign transaction fee. You will also need at least good credit (700+ credit score) to qualify for either card. Each card also offers modest signup bonuses. The SavorOne card has a bonus of $200 for spending $500 in the first 3 months. The Uber Visa card’s initial bonus is $100, also for spending $500 in the first 3 months. SavorOne does have an advantage with introductory APRs of 0% for 15 months on purchases and balance transfers. The Uber Visa card does not offer an introductory 0% APR.
