One way to do that is by changing things up, and, in this case, offering more services for its customers. As a result, Uber has decided to team up with Barclays and Visa for a co-branded credit card. The standard credit card fare is here, including points for doing things like paying for a check at a restaurant, and using the credit card to pay for a hailed ride from the service.
Starting next week, Uber customers will be able to use the standard Uber app to apply for the card, and Uber says it will have a decision regarding approval or not in a matter of minutes. Once approved, a customer can expect to find their credit card in the mail about a week later. If you spend $500 in the first 90 days, the card includes a $100 bonus. And there is no annual fee.
Percentages look like this:
- 4% back on purchases made from restaurants, takeout, and bars
- 3% back on purchases made for airfare and hotels, including Airbnb
- 2% back on online purchases, including monthly services like Spotify
- 1% back on all other purchases
What’s more, Uber credit card owners will also get an annual $50 credit which they can use for subscription services, including Netflix and others.
The new Uber credit card officially launches next week. You planning on applying for one?[via The Verge]
