Uber announces plans to issue its own credit card with Barclays in the US

2 August 2017

Riding-sharing company Uber plans to launch its own credit card in the US, partnering with the British bank Barclays.

The card will be launched in the US later this year, Barclays said last week. Uber would be the first of the riding-sharing companies to have a co-branded credit card; Uber rival Lyft has a partnership with Delta that offers miles, though it's not via a credit card.

No specific details about the card have been released, but it's rumored to be a Visa product.  Pundits believe that the new credit card will include a reward for cards spend in the form of Uber credits, bonus Uber credits on sign up and a bonus category for Uber purchases.

The Uber Credit Card will be the first credit card co branded card offered by a ride sharing service and follows Uber’s recent initiatives with Westpac and American Express. In the US, Uber partnered with American Express to offer Platinum cardholders a $200 annual credit on Uber. Most recently in Australia Westpac partnered with Uber to reward customers with $20 off every third Uber ride when they apply for the Westpac Altitude credit card and sign up for the ride-sharing app by 31st December 2017.
