The first time I heard of the Uber gift card program I had to stop and ask myself what it was. Then I started to think about how great it would be if I could get a gift card for a ride on the Uber app. That got me thinking about the other promo codes that I was already receiving. They offer great savings and I would encourage you to sign up for them, but for now let's talk about the idea behind these cards.
When you sign up for Uber gift card, you will likely receive emails from the company with information about the program and instructions on how to activate it. After you enter your credit card information, you will see your gift card to come in the mail. You will then be able to purchase the tickets that you need for your trip. This is where the problems start. The reason why you receive a code in the mail is because the company needs you to use an alternative payment method or it wouldn't make sense for them to receive your credit card details in the first place.
As mentioned above, the promo codes will expire after a period of time. The good news is, you have some options about how to redeem the gift cards. The most common way people redeem the cards is by purchasing them at the app's website. The website will offer you a redemption code, usually for a percentage of the cost of the ride. You can either enter this code online, or on the app itself. Once you enter the code, it will automatically apply the discount to your total price so that you will still pay less than you would with cash.
There are other ways to redeem your uber gift card though. You can add a payment method for online purchases from the app. You can also add a payment method for purchases within the app. However, you will not be able to redeem the gift card for actual gas purchases. The gas stations within the app cannot offer you a discount, so you will have to purchase gas outside of the app.
Another thing you can do is to mark the app's left-hand corner using your finger. When you do this, the app will recognize this gesture and will give you a discount for redeeming your gift card. Try doing this when you enter a location. It might take a few times but the discount should eventually apply.
You can also print off your recipient's personalised Uber cards. If you're not comfortable with printing these off yourself, you can find companies online that will do it for you. These companies are very affordable. They will charge you a one-time set up fee and will provide you with a list of the items you can choose from to fill in and personalise the cards.
As mentioned earlier, you can redeem your gift cards through the app. However, there are certain restrictions to this method. It won't work if the recipient doesn't already have an account with the app. You will also have to send them a request to try and get your gift cards.
Now that you know how to redeem your Uber gift cards, you're ready to head out and get your hands on some presents. Just make sure you send your requests in early. The earlier you send in your requests, the earlier you will receive your gifts. Don't forget to check your gift card recipients list to ensure they don't already have an account.
