Capital One Teams with Uber to Bring Big Savings to Riders

April 21, 2015, Written By Lynn Oldshue

If you are an Uber rider, you may want to get a Capital One Quicksilver card.

From now through April 2016, Uber riders will receive 20% back as a statement credit when they pay for their ride with a Quicksilver or Quicksilver One card.

The companies also announced today that new Uber riders who use this Capital One card will receive their first two rides free, up to $30 per ride.

Uber helps consumers get a taxi or private car directly from a mobile phone. The app connects riders to drivers in over 300 cities in 56 countries.

The Capital One Quicksilver cards have one of the most attractive rewards program in the credit card industry. Cardholders earn unlimited 1.5% cash back on any purchase. The card is easy to use since there are no rotating categories or sign ups needed to earn those cash rewards. In addition, new Quicksilver customers can earn a bonus of $100 after spending $500 on purchases within the first three months of card ownership.

The Quicksilver card is one for consumers with good or excellent credit scores (700+); the Quicksilver One card is for consumers with fair credit scores (640-699).

“This partnership is a great opportunity to further save our cardholders time and money by helping make the Uber experience more rewarding,” said Todd Kennedy, Senior Vice President, US Card, Capital One.
