No More Loyalty Uber needs from its customers, Read More
On Saturday, Uber is shutting its free loyalty program, Uber Rewards, so it can shift its attention to its subscription-based Uber One membership.
In an email sent to customers, Uber explains that users can still earn points until the end of August and that the last day to redeem points is October 31st.
The email reads, “Thank you for being part of Uber Rewards. It’s been a great ride, but we’ve decided to end Rewards soon, as we shift our focus to our new Uber One membership program.
You will still earn points and enjoy rewards benefits until the end of the month. And there’s still time to get all the rewards you’ve earned: just use your points by October 31. You can redeem them from the Account section of your Uber and Uber Eats apps.
As a valued member, you’ll also receive 1 free month of Uber One, giving you members-only savings and perks on Uber and Uber Eats. Join Uber One in the Account section in your app.
Thank you for being a loyal Uber customer.”
Uber has since posted an update about the loyalty program’s imminent shutdown, which will take place on November 1st, 2022.
Launched in 2018, Uber Rewards is a free program that allows you to rack up points for every dollar you spend when hitching a ride or ordering food through Uber and Uber Eats, The Verge reports.
