The Uber Credit Card has been on the scene for a few years now and was a solid cash-back great card, especially for those who are superfans of Uber’s ridesharing platform. But unfortunately, the card will be short-lived, as come October 22, 2021, the Uber card will be discontinued and its users transitioned to a different Barclays card.

Here is everything you new to know about the upcoming swap.

Old Benefits of the Uber Card

As of October 22, 2021, the Uber card will be officially be discontinued, and all current cardholders will be transited to the Barclays View™ Mastercard®.

Depending on your purchase habits, you may even come out better by using the new Barclays View card.

Here are its bonus categories:

The card will still feature no annual fee, but your overall redemption options will expand significantly, allowing you to redeem your points for cash-back into your bank account, statement credits, and gift cards to brand-name restaurants or retailers.

Final Thoughts

So, as of October 22, 2021, all Uber cardholders will officially be transitioned to the Barclays View card. While it is not clear why exactly Uber and Barclays made the decision to discontinue the card, most would agree that it had been increasingly less and less competitive to begin with, thanks to its limited redemption options.

While you’re losing 5% back categories on Uber purchases and 3% back categories on hotels and airfare, you’re gaining 2% back categories on groceries, along with internet, select streaming, phone, and TV services. Given that the new categories being added are more regular purchases for most people, you might end up even better off with the new card!
