Today we’re sharing some great news. We’ve agreed an exclusive loyalty programme with the UK’s leading payments business, Barclaycard, to bring you rewards for your rides
What does this mean for you?
It’s easy. If you use your personal Barclaycard to pay for your rides with Uber, you’ll get a free ride – of up to £15 – for every ten trips that you take.
And the really good news? You can clock up rides across the globe – all trips taken in any of the 450+ cities where Uber is available will count towards the tally. But remember, your free ride of up to £15 will only be available in the UK. If your ride costs more it’s not a problem; you’ll pay the difference using your Barclaycard.
New to Uber?
Welcome! We’ve got an extra treat for you. First time Uber riders who add a personal Barclaycard to the app, and enter the promotion code ‘BARC17’ will also get up to £10 off each of their first two trips booked through Uber.
How excited are we both?
Very. The programme is the first of its kind between Uber and a payment provider in the UK. It also sees Barclaycard expand its role in delivering value and innovation in the transport sector, having introduced contactless payments to London’s underground transport network over a decade ago.
“We’re really pleased to be working with Barclaycard as, like us, they use technology to constantly innovate. The Uber app allows people to access convenient, safe and affordable transport and we are excited to reward loyal riders alongside Barclaycard.”
Jo Bertram, Regional General Manager of Uber in the UK
“We’re constantly looking for new ways to give our 10 million customers additional value on their everyday spend and make their lives easier with new innovation. Working with Uber will see us offer great value to Barclaycard holders, and builds on our heritage of innovation in the transport space as we work together to drive forward exciting new ways of rewarding customer loyalty.”
