September 14, 2018 / US

A smarter way to pay for Uber

Ready to make your money go further on Uber? We’re introducing Uber Cash, the smart way to pay for Uber. Uber Cash allows you to plan ahead by adding funds upfront for a seamless payment experience across Uber’s services. Your purchased funds never expire and can be used for Uber rides and Uber Eats deliveries.

Uber Cash also comes with a discount based on how much you add to your balance. You get a 5% discount when you add $100, a 3% discount when you add $50, and a 2% discount when you add $25. You can add funds to your Uber Cash balance with almost any payment method, including credit cards, debit cards, Venmo, and PayPal. For added convenience, turn on auto-refill to automatically add the amount you select whenever your balance drops below $10. Uber Cash takes the magical Uber payment experience one step further, ensuring that you always get the most for your money, effortlessly.

Your Uber Cash balance will also be the new home for any credits you’ve received from Uber gift cards, Visa Local Offers, customer support refunds, and more. You’ll now see one total balance in your Payments settings that will apply towards rides and Eats deliveries whenever you choose Uber Cash as your payment method.

Uber Cash has begun rolling out in the Uber app to iOS users, and we’ll continue to roll out to all iOS and Android users in the coming weeks.
