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.
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.
