The travel technology company providing everything from rides to food delivery announced they would end their loyalty program at midnight on Halloween 2022, with more focus going into the Uber One membership program.
Uber Rewards Stop Accumulating in August, With Short Spending Window
The Uber loyalty program offered regular users rewards for their spending. With four loyalty tiers, benefits ranged from priority support for Gold members, to priority pickups and highly-rated drivers for higher tiers.
However, the company will put an end to both the tier system and points program in the fourth quarter of 2022. Without giving a reason, the company is pointing travelers to their subscription program as an alternative, Uber One.
“Nothing is replacing Uber Rewards,” the company said on a support page in their site. “However, we’ve built out a great membership program called Uber One, so if you’re interested in perks like $0 Delivery Fee on Uber Eats, 5% off eligible rides, and more.”
While points can still be earned through the end of August, other preferred benefits will go away once the program ends. For the top-tier Diamond members, phone support will officially end when everything closes on November 1, 2022.
The good news is that some American Express cardholders will get to retain certain perks when using Uber’s services. American Express Gold Card members will continue to get up to $120 in Uber Cash annually, while American Express Platinum Card members will get up to $200 in Uber Cash annually and automatic Uber VIP access where available.
