Uber Visa Credit Card is Now Live
The new Uber Visa Credit Card application is now live. I always like when new cards are introduced into the market. It allows for competition and new opportunities to earn sign-up bonuses and rewards. This card’s highlights are the sign-up bonus of $100 after $500 in spending and earning 4% back on dining all with a $0 annual fee.
- Earn $100 after spending $500 on purchases in the first 90 days.
- 4% back on dining; including resturants, take out, barrs and UberEats.
- 3% back on hotel and airfare including vacation home rentals.
- 2% back for online purchases. Includes Uber, online shopping, video and music services streaming.
- 1% back on all other purchases.
- Stream with a $50 subscription credit – Up to a $50 credit for online subscription services after you spend $5,000 or more on your card per year. Subscription services include: Apple Music, Pandora, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Music, Audible, Sirius XM, Netflix, Hulu, HBO NOW, DirecTV NOW, the membership fee for Amazon Prime, and Shoprunner
- Ride in peace with mobile phone protection – Up to $600 for mobile phone damage or theft when you pay your mobile phone bill with your card.
- Exclusive Access – Receive invites to exclusive events and offers in select U.S. cities.
- Enjoy no foreign transaction fees – Use your card outside the U.S. with no hidden fees.
- Redeem rewards on-the-go – Redeem points for Uber credits, gift cards, or cash back with a simple tap.
Uber Visa Credit Card Bottom Line:
I think this is a great card to get after you’ve already applied for many other travel rewards cards. Especially, Chase cards that earn Ultimate rewards points because of the 5/24 rule. Otherwise this card is awesome, earning 4% on dining which is probably an area of most spending for people is great. I find it a bit weird tho that the highest earning potential is on dining and not on Uber rides; I mean it’s an “Uber” credit card after all. Also, there’s no real benefit in redeeming your points on Uber rides as opposed to cash credit on your statement. So i don’t see any reason to redeem for anything other than pure cash. The only difference is that you need a minimum of 500 points to redeem $5 for Uber credit, a minimum of 2,500 points to redeem $25 for cash credit. Cash is King!
