Uber is giving free rides to Visa cardholders who shop locally


Uber today introduced a program that lets riders earn points toward a free trip simply by using the same Visa credit card they’re using in its app. Called Local Offers, the program lets riders who’ve enrolled in the program visit a participating restaurant, shop, or business, and make a purchase. For every dollar spent, they will receive one point toward their free trip. This is rolling out today in San Francisco and Los Angeles, with additional markets coming soon. “We’ve seen that everyday riders use Uber to explore their cities,” said product manager Drew Quinn. “It’s an integral way for people to connect with businesses.”
