Earn Uber Credits for Everyday Shopping with new Uber Rewards!

Article By:

Uber announced a nationwide partnership with Visa yesterday which should net you a lot of free Uber credits. Free Uber rides? Yes please! The new program is called Visa Local Offers, and it lets you earn Uber credits for everyday shopping with your Visa card. Thousands of merchants across the US are eligible for the rewards program. Once you’ve enrolled your Visa card, Uber will immediately apply credits to your account every time you use the card at eligible locations. Here’s how to enroll:

  1. Make sure you have the latest version of the Uber app installed
  2. You need to have an eligible US issued Visa card saved as a payment method
  3. Open Uber and tap the bottom of the screen to see your messages
  4. Scroll down to the ‘Visa Local Offers’ message
  5. Tap ‘Get Started’ and then tap ‘Count Me In’

Some examples of stores participating in the program include Dunkin Donuts, Neiman Marcus, QDOBA, Regal Cinemas, Walgreens, Yard House, Belga, Buredo, and so many more! There are many local establishments participating in addition to national chains. Check the Visa Local Offers section of the app for a full list of eligible businesses in your area.


It looks like you can earn around 10% from most merchants right now, which is huge! There’s no limit on how many total credits you can earn and the credits never expire. If you’re new to Uber, sign up with my promo code to get an addition $20 off.
