Here’s how you save money with Uber and Capital One.
New Users Get 2 Free Uber Rides (Up to $30 Each)
If you’re new to Uber, you can get 2 free Uber rides worth up to $30 each with your Capital One debit or credit card.
Sign-up for Uber with your Capital One debit or credit card. Then enter promotional code “RIDIN20” by April 30, 2016, and pay with your card.
The 2 free rides are good through April 30, 2016.
Your Capital One card must be issued in the US to get the free rides.
Corporate and private label cards do are NOT eligible. Also, UberTaxi does NOT qualify. And the free trips are only good for Uber rides within the US.
Save 20% on Uber for a Year!
This deal is good through April 30, 2016!
Note: You do NOT have to be a new Uber member to save 20%!
Update: It seems that Uber and Capital One disagree on the terms! As Million Miles Secrets reader Andy points out, Capital One says the discount only applies to rides paid for with US dollars. But when I posted, Uber’s page stated, “…Uber riders to get 20% back as a statement credit on every Uber ride through April 2016 when they pay with Quicksilver from Capital One. The offer applies globally in more than 300 cities where Uber operates.” So please let me know if you get the statement credit while overseas!
For folks who frequently use Uber and don’t already have the Capital One Quicksilver card, this may be a good time to sign-up! With this card you also get:
- $100 cash bonus when you spend $500 on purchases within 1st 3 months of opening your account
- 1.5% cash back on all purchases
- No foreign transaction fees
- No annual fee
So you’ll get 1.5% cash back on the full value of your fare, plus a 20% statement credit when you use Uber!
