Uber One Membership Replacing Uber Eats Pass

Uber One Membership Replacing Uber Eats Pass

18

Uber One is a new membership being offered by Uber, which replaces Uber Eats Pass. You can sign up right now for 50% off, or who knows, maybe this will be offered as a limited time credit card perk at some point in the future.

What are the benefits of Uber One?

An Uber One membership offers the following perks:

  • 5% off eligible rides and orders of food, groceries, alcohol, and more
  • Being matched with top-rated drivers
  • An Uber One Promise, whereby on eligible deliveries you’ll get $5 in Uber Cash if the latest arrival estimate (shown after the order is placed) is wrong
  • Unlimited $0 delivery fees on eligible food orders over $15 and grocery orders over $30
  • Access to premium member support, special offers and promotions, and invite-only experiences

How much does an Uber One membership cost?

In the long run, an Uber One membership will cost either $9.99 per month, or $99.99 per year. However, if you sign up for an annual membership by November 29, 2021, you can pay just $49.99. The $49.99 per year membership comes out to just $4.17 per month, so that’s quite a low price.

In the past we’ve seen Uber Eats Pass offered as a complimentary perk on premium credit cards. I’m curious if we could also see Uber One offered as a perk on some cards in the future.

Uber One is replacing Uber Eats Pass

Uber One is replacing Uber Eats Pass. For context, Uber Eats Pass offered many of the same perks, including savings on deliveries. I’d consider this to be a net positive:

  • Uber Eats Pass also costs $9.99 per month, so Uber One is the same price, or significantly cheaper if you sign up for a one year membership now
  • Uber Eats Pass members will automatically be switched to Uber One at the start of their next billing cycle
  • Uber One offers more perks than Uber Eats, including 5% savings on eligible Uber rides, as well as a new Uber Cash credit if your delivery is delayed

If you ask me, it makes sense for Uber to better integrate its rideshare platform with its delivery platform, given that both have competitors. For example, I constantly use Uber Eats for deliveries, while I use Lyft for my rideshare. If there are more perks across the platforms, I’d be more likely to get rides with Uber as well.

Is Uber One a good deal?

The math on Uber One will work out differently depending on whether you get in on the $49.99 or $99.99 annual pricing:

  • The 5% savings on rides will add up quickly — if you get in on the $49.99 pricing, that’s like paying $4.17 per month, so you’d breakeven on $83 per month worth of Uber rides or deliveries, and that’s not even factoring in the other perks
  • If you got value out of Uber Eats Pass, then it seems to be a no brainer to get Uber One, since you’re getting more perks than before, and you can even sign up right now at half price

I’d say the value here is pretty good.

Bottom line

A new Uber One membership has been introduced, which replaces Uber Eats Pass. This is a logical direction for Uber to go, as previously the rideshare and food delivery services weren’t well integrated in terms of perks. I think it could potentially make sense to sign up for Uber One, especially if you take rides with Uber with any frequency.

What do you make of Uber One?

    I’d happily sign up and have tried for over a week, but it just spins (yes, have used multiple devices and browsers and confirmed it’s just an issue with my account). Am guessing this is broken for anyone who cancelled to keep the previously free (via AX) Eats Pass from renewing in the last month.

  2. Jess M Guest

    I don't think any of the delivery perks are worth it! I bought a Postmates annual pass and I didn't seem to save a dime!

  3. RF Guest

    Is the Amex Platinum free year of Eats Pass / Uber One only 1 time per account? I can't seem to activate even switching to a different Plat/Gold card.

    Uber Eats has been a ripoff. The menu prices are often higher than if you order directly from the restaurants' websites. Then the mysterious service "fees" that offset the membership "discount" on the order.
    Also, for the Portland OR, I am certain they reprioritize food delivery trips.... for the few times used Uber Eats (exactly once per month to take advantage of Amex promo discount), 90% of the time the delivery was delayed more...

    Honestly used an uber once a month ago bc I didn't feel like driving to and from a town over an hour one way through traffic for a family member to come have a meal with the family. Really haven't benefitted all that much from the eats pass as in 75% of the time it's faster to go pick the food up myself thus saving time and a tip and my food is actually hot...

    100% worth it if you use EATS and ride share a few times a month. The savings add up pretty quickly. The food menus can be higher for SOME restaurants but it's also higher on DoorDash and Seamless so nothing different there. I have EATS Pass and I really do love it. PLUS you get more promotions and rewards from ordering at the same restaurants.

    The only value from Uber Eats / Postmates at this point is ordering their BOGO deals or the odd massively discounted restaurants (e.g. Spend $40 get $30 off). The enormous fees mean you're sometimes paying 20-50% more than listed prices.

    Doordash with the pass is much better value. You only pay $1-3 service fees and the Sapphire cards give you the Dashpass for free. Plus there's often discounts on top of that so you end...

    Nah, not a good deal. Uber Eats has quietly uncapped service fees recently. Any savings you think you'd get are gone, and that's on top of restaurants pricing higher to make up the commission.

    Also, I've been getting 10% off Uber rides due to having an Eats Pass until a couple of days ago. They've silently pulled that perk, and are now saying 5% is new savings in this new product.

    No thanks. I've canceled mine.

    1. Super New Member

      Ah the good ol' days of a $80 order having a $5 service fee... Loved combining in-app discounts with Amex Uber Cash + BOGO to get a feast for pennies.

  9. Tini Guest

    I have given Uber eats many tries and I am done. There’s an issue of some kind at least half the time; it’s easier to just order takeout.

  10. Dan Guest

    Yeah, but food prices are most of the time higher on Uber Eats than the restaurant's own platform. On top of that, Uber charges a service fee, in addition to the waived delivery fee.

    It made sense for us while it was free via Amex, now that has ended. Not really appealing to get it by paying.

  11. Sel, D. Guest

    The “no delivery charge” is a total sham as they still charge other fees for ordering through the app.

  12. Kyle Guest

    Is it available everywhere yet? Still seeing Eats Pass on mine and the "Try" link just transfers me to my Eats Pass.

    1. Kyle Guest

      I'd like to be able to take advantage of the $49 offer but there seems to be no way to do it for current Eats Pass members.

    2. Hunter Guest

      Cancel your current pass and then check memberships.

  13. Paul Guest

    I still don’t see this in either app… just shows the old Eats Pass… no annual discount.

  14. Victor Guest

    Will free Amex Uber Eats passes convert to Uber One?

    1. Andrew Guest

      Probably. Except they will say it doesn't work at restaurants, taking inspiration from their Priority Pass modifications. If you can find a grocery store that delivers Uber Eats, then Amex will work.

      That's the spirit of coupon-booking that I equate with AmEx these days.
