Your convenient rideshare app just got a little more official with the Uber Credit Card. For those already using Uber to get around and Uber Eats to get fed, the new credit card has rewards for you.
The Uber Credit Card earns 4 percent back on restaurants, take-out and bars; 3 percent back on airfare and hotels; 2 percent on online purchases, including music streaming services; and 1 percent back on everything else.
Some other perks to consider: The credit card offers no foreign transaction fees, exclusive event access and even phone protection. You can redeem points for Uber Cash by adding your Uber Visa Card to the Uber app, hitting the menu to reveal your available points and selecting the number you’d like to redeem — sounds simple enough. Just one catch, you have to earn at least 500 points first for $5 and 2,500 points for $25. Credit card users can redeem Uber Cash or gift cards of their choosing.
If you already have the Uber app, you can read more by tapping the Payment option under Menu, then View All Offers and Details in the Apply for the Uber Visa Card section.
There’s a whole lot to consider when opening a new credit card and a lot of responsibility with credit lines and payments, but if you’re already an avid Uber user, it might be a credit card worth considering.
Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
