How to Earn Free Rides on Uber With Capital One Quicksilver
Link: Capital One Quicksilver
Link: Capital One Quicksilver One
If you pay for Uber rides with your Capital One Quicksilver card or Capital One Quicksilver One card, you’ll receive a free ride (up to $15) after 9 paid rides. Here are additional details on the promo:
- Valid for uberPOOL, uberX, uberBLACK (excludes uberTAXI)
- Earn free rides through March 31, 2017, and redeem free rides through April 30, 2017
Once you have a Quicksilver card linked to your Uber account, you’ll see a progress bar in the app showing how close you are to earning your next free ride.
And your free ride will not automatically be applied to your 10th ride. So, if you don’t expect your 10th ride to be $15 or more, save it for later. This way, you’ll earn the most savings!
