Earn Free Uber Rides When You Shop and Dine Out

Uber riders in Los Angeles and San Francisco have the opportunity to earn free rides thanks to a new feature called Uber Local Offers, the product of a new partnership with Visa. When riders make everyday purchases at participating shops and restaurants with the Visa card connected to their Uber app, they’ll earn points within the app that count towards free rides. Note that you have to opt-in to earn your points at each participating retailer — the app doesn’t enroll you automatically. Once you’ve accumulated 100 points (equal to $100 in spending), a $10 credit will appear in your account.

While Uber still doesn’t have its own loyalty program, per se, it does maintain a number of relationships with brands such as Starwood as well as with American Express, Capital One and now Visa. Remember you can maximize the dollars spent on Uber rides by using a credit card that earns bonus points on travel expenses, such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve, which earns 3x points on travel spending — which includes Uber. If you don’t have an Uber account, sign up here to receive your first ride for free (up to $20) from TPG.
