Uber wants to dominate the ride-share space, and it’s offering both short- and long-term incentives to secure that dominance.
20 Percent Discount
Holders of Capital One Quicksilver and QuicksilverOne cards will receive a 20 percent discount on all Uber rides charged to the card, through April 2016.
The discount is in the form of a statement credit.
Two Free Rides
First-time Uber users who charge their rides to any U.S.-issued Capital One credit card will receive their first two rides free. Offer applies to rides costing $30 or less.
Deal or No Deal
For regular Uber users, the 20 percent discount potentially represents a huge savings over the next 12 months. The Quicksilver card is a 1.5 percent cash-back card, with a one-time $100 bonus after spending $500 within the first three months. There are, to be sure, more lucrative cash-back cards available. But there’s no annual fee for the Quicksilver card, so it might be worth getting solely for the Uber discount.
It’s probably not worth signing up for a new Capital One card just to get the two free Uber rides. But if you already have a Capital One card, and have yet to try Uber, the freebies are worth as much as $60.
