Uber will discontinue its free loyalty programme in the coming months
Uber is eliminating its free reward programme, Uber Rewards, in order to focus on its Uber One membership, which requires a monthly payment. Uber informs consumers in an email that points can still be earned through the end of August and that the deadline for redeeming them is October 31.
The email begins, “Thank you for being part of Uber Rewards,It’s been a great ride, but we’ve decided to end Rewards soon, as we shift our focus to our new Uber One membership program.”
The reward programme will end on November 1st, 2022, according to a new post on Uber’s website. In 2018, Uber introduced Uber Rewards, a free loyalty programme that allows riders and customers of Uber Eats to earn points for every dollar they spend. Then, you can redeem those points for savings on future rides or deliveries. With 7,500 points, for instance, you may access the Diamond tier, which grants you access to premium customer service, free ride upgrades, superior drivers, and three free Uber Eats deliveries, among other goodies.
But all of that is disappearing now. The only way to reliably receive Uber’s savings and privileges once Eats Pass was discontinued last year was to pay for an Uber One subscription, which Uber now requires. Free food deliveries, up to 10% off “eligible” Uber Eats orders, and 5% off trips with top-rated drivers are just a few of the benefits of an annual $49.99 (or monthly $9.99) Uber Eats subscription.
