Discover it categories - Uber Eats?

Does anybody know if Uber Eats will count as an Uber purchase in the 2nd quarter when Uber is a 5% category?

From the Discover site: "Purchases made through Uber Eats will not qualify."

Re: Discover it categories - Uber Eats?

Thanks...Guess my discover card is basically useless until July then!

Well I guess I’ll use it for gas 2nd quarter.. but the BCP has me covered for groceries. And I don’t really order much from amazon, barely used it last quarter, and I wouldn’t use discover for any big purchase anyway without extended warranty or price protection. I would just apply for a new one so I can get the 10% again but I don’t think I should apply for any more credit cards! Happy to use discover for a few months out of the year for restaurants though if that keeps the account open.

Hopefully they do something different with the categories in 2020 and change it up a bit

Uber Eats generally codes as dining, including Discover and Visa (the Uber card gets the 4%).

Re: Discover it categories - Uber Eats?

you could always just purchase credits/gift card through your regular uber account and use that money on UBER eats. That way you can use the category if you want.
