Re: Need to use Uber to get card?

I am pretty sure I applied and filled up an application online. They seem to have removed that option, so all applications now go through the Uber mobile app. This seems like you at least need the Uber mobile app and an account. I believe you would not need to actually use Uber before you can apply.

I do not see the "Payment Offers" section within "Payments". Guess I'll just have to keep earning 3x URs on Uber/Eats/Restaurants. Smiley Happy

Now Barclays just needs to get with the times and SP a card CL and APR offer so I can see what that is Smiley Happy

Totally! I hope that lenders look at Apple’s success with this model of showing terms before opening the account and start rolling it out as well!

Thanks for all the support!

No. You can go on barclaycardus.com site to apply for Uber card. But if you haven't used UBER ever why do you need the card?


4% restaurants and bars with no annual fee. The value for me is right there. 


And I don't think the Uber card offers any additional benefits on Uber either!

As I said, I don't see a "Payment Offers" section within "Payments". It goes from "Ride Profiles" to "Promotions". A search suggests other people have the Payment Offers section between those two.

Re: Need to use Uber to get card?

Card is now targeted.. What targets it I suspect only uber knows.  Use to apply on website that is how i got my original one..  Use to see link on phone.  Since has gone away S10.  Which believe only certain people are targeted.  Target is a loss leader card for UBER/Barclay's although suspect UBER is eating the losses if people use it for 3%+ cats only.  Data is key to UBER and that is why they are offering 3-4% cats to track your info as data is the best thing to have about people and what you can do with it is amazing and you better bet they are using this data and using it to target you for certain things, sell it to their affiliate and many other things.  UBER is a tech company keep in mind Smiley Happy

Last I heard the direct link to apply wasn't working and the only way was through the Uber app, and even then the application wasn't availabe to everyone.

 

Personally I have the Uber card for 4% at resturants, and the cell phone insurance benefit.   I have never used Uber either, and was lucky enough to get it while the direct link was working.
