Select Capital One credit cards can knock 20% off Uber rides automatically for the next year. If you’re a frequent Uber ride sharing user, this promotion can help save you real money.
Uber is a car service that’s quickly replacing Taxi services for people around the world. Having a private driver a couple of smartpone taps aways is pretty affordable and Capital One is making the service even more attractive for its cardholders. While Uber started off by offering luxury black car services, most of its drivers are now part of its UberX program, which is far more affordable.
Capital One Quicksilver and QuickSilver One cardholders simply need to add their cards to their Uber accounts as a payment type. The rides will be calculated and charged at full Uber rates, but the 20% discount will be applied as statement credits within one or two billing cycles.
Capital One will comp all of its cardholders that are new to Uber their first two Uber rides, up to $30. The complimentary rides must be redeemed by June 30, 2015. To take advantage of this offer, visit capitalone.uber.com. Remember to type in CAPITALONE in the promo form on the Uber app before taking your first ride.
The Capital One Quicksilver and Quicksilver One cards offer 1.5% cash back on all categories of purchases, including the discounted Uber rides. That means the rides are effectively discounted by 21.5%.
It probably isn’t worth applying for the Capital One Quicksilver card just for this Uber promotion, but it is a nice perk that you should take advantage of if you already have the card.
