Earn Points + Cashback With Every Uber & Lyft Ride: The Complete List to Save the Most

I’m always torn between taking Uber and Lyft when it comes to rideshares. I mostly base the decision on which promos I’m chasing at the time. Because both companies let you stack several offers to earn points and cashback rewards every time you ride.

Here’s what you can get with Uber:

  • 200 points (worth $2 in cashback) for each ride when you link your card through Pei – download the app here and enter code “2pur1z” for 500 free points
  • 250 to 500 Freebird points (5,000 points = $10 cashback) when you start your ride through Freebirddownload the app here and enter code “OUTANDOUTfor $10 back
  • 1% cashback when you link your card through Hoochdownload the app here
  • $1 in Shop Your Way rewards for every ride, up to $20 per month – link accounts here
  • Up to 10% back in credits with Visa Local Offers (opt-in through the Uber app)
  • 10 Drop points per $1 for when you link your card with Dropdownload the app here

Get to saving every time to rideshare

And here’s what you can do with Lyft:

  • 3X Hilton points per $1 – link accounts
  • 1X Delta mile per $1, and 2X Delta miles on rides to/from the airport – link accounts
  • 30 JetBlue points for rides to/from the airport (up to 1,200 points per year) – link accounts
  • 200 points (worth $2 in cashback) for each ride when you link your card through Peidownload the app here and enter code “2pur1z” for 500 points
  • 250 to 500 Freebird points (5,000 points = $10 cashback) when you start your ride through Freebirddownload the app here and enter code “OUTANDOUT for $10 back
  • 25 cents for each ride when you tap through Ebatessign up here (this does NOT stack with Freebird, so choose one or the other – I recommend Freebird!)
  • 10 Drop points per $1 for when you link your card with Dropdownload the app here
  • $10 in credit for every 5 rides when you link and pay with a World Elite MasterCard

And that doesn’t count their respective loyalty programs that are slowly rolling out.

It’s kind of incredible you can get all this back from each ride – when you stack multiple opportunities, the rewards amount to a big rebate, particularly if you take a lot of quick rides around town.

So which one is the better choice?

Hacking Uber: Earn Points, Cashback, and Credits Every Time You Ride 🚙

Updated 5/23/19.

I’ve been riding Uber more lately because they make it so easy to stack multiple offers when you ride.

earn points with uber

Oh, Uber. I am “getting there”

And, I’m hopeful they’re slowly but surely turning things around.

With Lyft, you can only earn 1X Delta miles – and 30 JetBlue points on airport trips. Which, meh.

I’d rather earn cashback and Drop points, use travel credits, and get Uber credits for shopping around town. And many times you can stack these deals. You know I love a good stack!

Freebird Promo Code for $10 Cashback: “OUTANDOUT”

  • OUTANDOUT” – $10 cashback ($5 for each of your first 2 rides)

Freebird lets you book Uber and Lyft rides through their app – and you’ll earn points on each ride. Once you earn 5,000 points, you can cash it out for $10. So you can potentially do even better when you add points to the mix.

Up to $10 Back for Uber & Lyft Rides + Earn Points Every Time With Freebird

I recently discovered Freebird – an app that aims to reduce drinking and driving, and partners with local bars, restaurants, and liquor companies to reward consumers for taking Uber or Lyft rides to their businesses (and back home). Rewards come in the form of points per ride, and cashback when you visit a participating business.

And right now, you can get up to $10 back when you connect your Uber and/or Lyft accounts and start riding.

Even better, it pulls prices directly from Uber and Lyft – but booking through Freebird gets you the benefit of earning rewards on every ride.

I’ve been using it for a week or so and I gotta say, it’s pretty cool.

Get 50 Cents per Uber Ride Through Acorns (YMMV)

Saw this today and wanted to share. You can now get 50 cents back for each Uber ride after clicking through the Acorns app.

Some peeps can still get $1 back after clicking through Ibotta – although it’s no longer showing for everyone. The 50 cents deal is also targeted. So hopefully you see it in one place or another.

Better than nada – but targeted

It’s not a lot. But all you have to do is tap a button and get 50 cents. Plus, there are 60+ other merchants on Acorns’ “Found Money” with great payouts.

Acorns is an app that lets you start investing for as little as $5. Here’s my full review of the service.

Lyft: Cheaper & Better Than Uber, Now With Cashless Tipping

It took me a long time to get into the whole “Uber” thing. I was always like… why not just take a taxi?

The price wasn’t that much cheaper until recently.

The few times I uber-ed, the main thing I liked was the cashless tipping. The price, all things considered, was equal to a cab (I say/write this in NYC).

Then, they slashed fares. 

uber vs lyft

Underdog extraordinaire

And, I started going to Dallas a whole lot more, without a car. I grew accustomed to firing up Uber as I walked outside and getting a ride to my condo. Again, with the cashless tipping.

I love the simplicity of the bundled fare. You just get out when you arrive, and you’re on your way. The receipt comes via email seconds after the door closes.

…But now there’s no cashless tipping
