Customers have until the end of August to earn points redeemable until the end of October. 

Moving On

Uber has decided to move on from its loyalty rewards program, according to a support page on its website first spotted by The Verge

Soon, users of the world’s biggest ride-hailing service and Uber Eats will no longer be able to earn points that they can redeem. Instead, the company plans to focus on its Uber One program.

“Nothing is replacing Uber Rewards,” says the support page. “However, we’ve built out a great membership program called Uber One.” 

It adds that the latter offers “perks like $0 Delivery Fee on Uber Eats, 5% off eligible rides, and more.” 

The company disclosed that Uber Rewards will shut down on November 1. Customers can continue to earn points that they can redeem until October 31st. 

Uber tolled out Rewards in 2018 to allow users to earn points on each transaction they made on its rider and food ordering services. It offers four membership levels - Blue, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond. A minimum number of points in each stage over six months moves users a tier higher. 

In contrast, Uber One is a subscription-based program that costs $10 a month. Existing Rewards users will get a free one-month trial to test the service before committing.
