Compare gift cards with Vouchers
You can gift festive Eats or VIP Rides in a few ways. Discover which approach is right for you.
Gift cards: Load your gift cards with Uber credit for your employees or customers to spend on treats and trips as and when they choose.
Vouchers: Gift Uber credit to employees or customers and only pay for festive eats ordered or rides taken, so you can share the joy for less. You also control the parameters and can track how the credit is used.
- How does it work?
Gift cards: You can send recipients digital cards by text, email, or print—you decide how to distribute. Physical gift cards are available through our sales team. Purchase cards here.
Vouchers: You distribute Uber credit to recipients and set controls such as expiration dates, location restrictions, and/or day and time the credit can be used. Recipients can request rides or meals from their Uber or Uber Eats app and apply the voucher toward their purchase. You can sign up here.
- How do I pay?
Gift cards: You pay in full for the gift card amount at the time of purchase.
Vouchers: You pay only when a user redeems the voucher and applies it toward a ride or meal. For instance, if you distribute $100 in vouchers and only $50 is used, you pay $50.
- How do businesses typically use these products?
Gift cards: Companies use gift cards as end-of-year or festive gifts for employees, corporate holiday gifts or customer thank yous, and seasonal prizes or giveaways.
Vouchers: Companies use vouchers to gift their teams VIP trips to office parties, bring employees together with festive food, treat customers during the holiday season or add sparkle to their seasonal promotions.
