Barclays and Uber are teaming up on a new credit card. The new Uber Visa credit card is now available starting today. We offer a review of the Uber Visa credit card benefits and details, which has some interesting cash back features.
New Barclays Uber Visa Credit Card
Sign Up Bonus: 10,000 bonus points, redeemable for $100 in Uber credits, statement credits or gift cards
Spend Requirement: $500 in 3 months
Annual Fee: $0
4% cash back or 4 points per dollar spent at restaurants, takeout, or bars
3% cash back or 3 points per dollar spent on airlines, hotels, vacation home rentals
2% cash back or 2 points per dollar spent for online purchases (Uber, online shopping, and video & music streaming services
1% cash back or 1 point per dollar on all other purchases
Up to a $50 credit for online subscription services after you spend $5,000 or more on your card per year
Up to $600 for mobile phone damage or theft when you pay your mobile phone bill with your card
No foreign transaction fee
Other Details: Redeem points for Uber credits, gift cards, or cash back
This one-time bonus points offer is valid for first-time cardmembers with new accounts only
Eligibility: It is more difficult to get approved for Barclays cards than some others. Barclays typically wants you to have only 1 or 2 new credit cards in the last 6 months.
Recommendation: This is a good cash back credit card, or if you use Uber a lot you can use it for Uber credits. The 4% cash back or 4 points per dollar on restaurants, takeout, or bars is a nice benefit, as is the 3% cash back or 3 points per dollar on airlines, hotels, and vacation rental homes. 2% cash back on online purchases is nice also. The $100 or 10,000 points bonus is ok. The no annual fee makes it a better card option, as does the cell phone theft and damage protection (if you pay your cell phone bill with the card). Overall it would be a good cash back card to have.
There is a rumor that Barclays will add the ability to transfer points to airline partners in 2018, which would make the Uber Visa credit card even more interesting and attractive.
