Uber says it’s ending service at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX). The Phoenix City Council announced Wednesday it’s raising fees assessed to ridesharing companies who serve the airport — and Uber is hailing a ride out.
We’ve certainly seen a marked increase not only in travel and transit categories but some boosts to general cashback cards, as well.
The busy holiday season means airport rides and holiday celebrations — a perfect time to use rideshare! So with that, here are our picks for the best credit cards to use on your rideshare purchases!
Happy Fourth of July, everyone! If you’re celebrating, I hope you’re having a great time!

If your card application is instantly approved, Amex generally provides you a card number, expiration date, and CVV you can use to start shopping online right away.
