Not all journeys are created equal, but whether it’s a road-trip or the commute to work it’s now more rewarding than ever to travel on roads across Aotearoa with Uber and Uber Eats gift cards becoming a redemption reward for AA Smartfuel cardholders
From today millions of AA Smartfuel cardholders and AA Members will be able to instantly convert their AA Smartfuel discounts into Uber gift cards.Cardholders can choose to turn all or some of their AA Smartfuel discounts into an Uber gift card – just through a quick process in their AA Smartfuel App.
AA Smartfuel co-founder, Ian Sutcliffe, says it’s exciting to offer cardholders another meaningful redemption option for their AA Smartfuel discounts, “By choosing to convert AA Smartfuel discounts to Uber credits, we are able to provide New Zealanders with another practical way to save money on a regular expense, putting more dollars back into their wallets.”
Uber Eats General Manager, New Zealand Bec Nyst, says: “We know how much of a staple the AA Smartfuel program is for Kiwis and how much of a win it is to have Uber and Uber Eats gift cards as a redemption offering in that rewards carousel. But we also believe it’s a fantastic way for New Zealanders to support their local small businesses by using their Uber Eats points to shop locally at thousands of cafes and restaurants across the North and South Islands. The partnership will make the next trip from A to B on Uber, or a customer’s next takeaway or pickup order on Uber Eats, even cheaper.”
The partnership also coincides with Uber announcing gift cards for their rideshare and Eats app to Aotearoa for the first time.
Kiwis can order physical and digital cards online as well as on premise from retailers like Foodstuffs (where you can also order fresh groceries on the Uber Eats app) as well as Countdown. Retailers Prezzee and GiftStation will also be selling digital versions of the gift cards.
With gift card denominations ranging from $5 right up to $500 there’s a card for every occasion with all of the cards redeemed directly through the Uber platform.
The minimum amount required to convert in either automatic or one-off option to an Uber gift card is 20 cents per litre.
