Uber has launched Gift Cards that are redeemable across Uber and Uber Eats. They will be available to buy via Paytm, Woohoo and other online platforms in a number of different denominations starting at Rs. 500.
In a press release, the company said that the new products will enable users to gift their family and friends a ride or a meal with the tap of a button. Uber Gift Cards will also make for innovative corporate gifting options, the company claimed.
The cards are available in denominations of Rs. 500, Rs. 1000, Rs. 2000, Rs. 3000, Rs. 5000 and Rs. 10,000. Once a gift card is purchased, users will be able to redeem it by going over to the ‘Payment’ section of the Uber app. In case you’re interested, here’s how you go about it:
