Uber is ending its loyalty program, Uber Rewards, so it can turn its attention to its subscription-based “Uber One” option.

You have until October 31 to spend your Uber Rewards points.

In an email sent to customers, Uber explains that users can still earn points until the end of August, and that the last day to redeem them is October 31.

Thank you for being part of Uber Rewards. It's been a long walk, but we've decided to end Rewards soon as we shift our focus to our new Uber One program.

Last days to use your points

Uber has since published an update on the impending termination of the loyalty program, which will take place on November 1, 2022. Launched in 2018, Uber Rewards is a free program that allows you to earn points for money spent on taking a ride or ordering food through Uber and Uber Eats.

You can then use these points to earn discounts on future rides or deliveries. The more points you earn, the more and better perks you will receive - earning 7,500 points, for example, unlocks the highest level of Diamondwhich comes with benefits like:

  • premium support travel and Uber Eats;
  • You will have matches with more highly rated drivers;
  • 3 Uber Eats orders with a €0 delivery fee;
  • Complimentary travel upgrades when available;
  • Access to benefits obtained at Blue, Gold and Platinum levels.

The End of Uber Rewards

But now all this is disappearing. Uber is not offering a replacement for the program, and there is no other way to consistently earn perks and discounts unless you pay for an Uber One subscription. A $9.99/month (or $99.99/year) subscription comes with perks like free food deliveries, up to 10% off "eligible" Uber Eats orders, and 5% off driver trips top.

Uber is giving existing Rewards members a free one-month Uber One subscription, but you will have to pay after that. In fact, it's a little disturbing to see Uber take away a free and easily accessible loyalty program, something that's becoming much harder to find nowadays.
