Many people know Uber as a ride-hailing company, but another very popular and useful venture from them is Uber Eats – a food delivery service that acts as a platform between you and thousands of food companies and restaurants, ensuring your next meal order gets delivered right at your doorstep.
While you can pay for your meals with a credit or debit card through the app, you can also pay using Uber Eats gift cards. Uber Eats gift cards are available in $200, $100, $50, and $25, and they can be received via text or email.
It’s worth noting that any gift card you receive and add to your account cannot be transferred to another account no matter the amount left on it. Once you receive an Uber Eat gift card and add it to your account, it becomes tied to that account. Additionally, you can’t refill a gift card, but you can add gift card credits worth up to $1000 to your account.
Once you’re ready to redeem your gift card, make sure you have the latest version of the Uber Eats app and follow the simple steps below:
