Uber launches new loyalty program for its members
Uber, the ridesharing company, on Wednesday, November 14, announced Uber Rewards, a new loyalty program that allows customers to earn every time they use Uber or Uber Eats.
In one corporate blog post, Uber said the new program offers users four membership levels, including Blue, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. The program is free and will eventually cover their bikes and scooters.
Once a user signs up, they start earning one point for every eligible dollar spent on UberPool and Uber Eats orders; two points for UberX, UberXL, Select and WAV; and three points for black and black SUVs.
