Uber to discontinue its rewards programme soontext_fields
Los Angeles: Uber is discontinuing its loyalty programme, Uber Rewards, and urging consumers to sign up for the Uber One subscription in order to continue receiving regular discounts on Uber and Uber Eats.
According to The Verge, Uber Rewards, a free programme that was introduced in 2018, allows you to earn points for every dollar you spend when using Uber and Uber Eats to order food or hail a ride.
You can then use these points to earn discounts on future rides or deliveries. The more points you earn, the better perks you get -- earning 7,500 points.
However, Uber is not offering a replacement for the programme, and there is no other way to consistently earn perks and discounts unless you pay for an Uber One subscription, which Uber launched as a replacement for Eats Pass last year.
A USD 9.99/month (or USD 49.99/year) subscription comes with perks like free food deliveries, up to 10 per cent off of "eligible" Uber Eats orders and 5 per cent off on rides from top-rated drivers.
