Uber Eats announced a promotion that may score you up to 550 bonus Uber points during the next two weeks.
(The offer does appear targeted, so check your email inbox. Look under the “Promotions” tab or something similar if you don’t see it.)
Uber Eats users who receive the offer can earn up to 550 bonus points when they:
- Place two (2) orders during week 1 (now through– August 1), get 250 reward points.
- Place one (1) order during week 2 (August 2 – 8), get 300 reward points.
Five hundred fifty points total about $5.50 in Uber credit.
If you want to order take-out, this certainly is something to consider. But I wouldn’t necessarily go out of my way to order three meals on Uber Eats to just earn five bucks worth of points.
Stack with Cash Back Portals and Amex Platinum!
Start your order through a cashback portal!
- New Uber Eats customers receive $7
- Existing customers don’t get anything
- New Uber Eats customers receive 12% cashback
- Existing customers receive 5% cashback
The promotion’s timing might be great if you hold a Platinum Card from American Express. Remember that cardholders of the consumer Amex Platinum receive a monthly deposit of $15 in Uber Cash, which can be used toward Uber rides or Uber Eats.
So if you have this month’s credit burning a hole in your pocket, you might as well use it on Uber Eats and fulfill one of the order requirements for this week. Then if you decide to complete the challenge, order again before August 1, and when next week rolls around, use your August credit for your third order.
This promotion is an attractive option if you need to order food delivery — and utilize cashback portals and the Amex Platinum’s Uber Cash deposits.
But if you hadn’t planned on using a food delivery service, this offer might not be worth the expense just to earn about $5.50 worth of points.
