Do you remember life before Uber? I do, and life has definitely become easier since ridesharing was invented.
In the past, every time we had a fun night out, we’d have to select a sober driver. Neither of us drink and drive, even if it’s just one beer, so one of us was always tasked with getting us home safely. We also struggled to plan the logistics of certain trips, such as getting me to the airport after the kids should be in bed.
These days, we use Uber so often that we think of it as our “second car.” We use it frequently when we go to a concert or other events where no one wants to drive. I also take Uber to the airport for my early morning flights in lieu of getting everyone out of bed at 4:00 a.m. Last but not least, we find that taking Uber is a lot more convenient (and affordable) when we’re going somewhere with scarce parking available.
Uber is easy to use and it’s not very expensive. All in all, I’ve had positive experiences, too. I can’t think of a single Uber ride I’ve taken when it didn’t go perfectly, and I’ve ridden with Uber a lot.
Earning Rewards with Uber
Of course, one of my big goals is making sure we earn optimal rewards on all of our purchases – including Uber rides. Well, now I can begin racking up rewards with Uber too!
An amazing e-commerce and loyalty rewards program called Shop Your Way makes this possible! Sign up for Shop Your Way and simply link it to your Uber account. Once you do this, you’ll earn $2 CASHBACK in points for every Uber ride you take.
Here are a few more important details to keep in mind about Shop Your Way:
- There are no fees to join. It’s free!
- You can redeem points online at Shopyourway.com, Sears, Kmart, Land’s End and Sears Auto Centers or in-store.
- You will see your Uber Shop Your Way points within 24-48 hours after you complete your ride. The points are good for 2 months.
If you have never ridden with Uber before, you will receive a promo code for $15 off Uber when you sign up for Shop Your Way. You’ll also earn $5 CASHBACK in points through Shop Your Way for the first ride, which is on top of the $2 CASHBACK in points for every ride. Remember though, this is only for people who have never used Uber before.
Even after you earn the new rider bonus, you will continue to earn $2 CASHBACK in points through Shop Your Way for every Uber ride you take. However, please remember that you have to link your Uber account to your Shop Your Way account here. It won’t credit your account automatically!
Even better, Shop Your Way is offering an amazing $5 CASHBACK in points through Shop Your Way for rides taken during St. Patrick’s Day weekend, from March 16th through March 19th. This is a pretty crazy bonus considering you may be planning to take several rides around town on St. Patrick’s Day so that you can take part in all your town’s festivities and events.
While it’s always a great time to sign up for Shop Your Way, right now is an exceptionally smart time to do it – especially if you are an Uber rider. Not only will you earn $5 CASHBACK in points for each Uber ride you take over St. Patrick’s Day weekend, but you’ll get $2 CASHBACK in points for every ride you take before or after the special promotion period as well.
If you use Uber frequently like I do, it’s easy to see how your rewards could add up quickly. Here’s how you can get started:
- Make sure to link your Uber account here, and sign up for a free Shop Your Way account if you don’t have one.
- Take Uber rides and pay with your rewards-earning credit card.
It’s easy and it’s free, and you really can’t lose.
