    I use Uber / Uber Eats basically all the time so I can now get free points by doing absolutely nothing, sweet! Does anyone know if having Uber Eats Pass affects this at all?

  • Avatar

    Has anyone took advantage of this? Trying to figure out how quickly the points deposit. I also wonder if coupons or Uber Pass affect the $25 requirement.

  • Avatar

    This is a really nice upgrade and a good reason to use Marriott.

    I love it when companies form partnerships to do stuff like this! It makes you feel like they are actually trying to help you out by giving you wins for doing things I already do! Thanks awardwallet for keeping me informed and up to date on all these nifty and useful promos and partnerships!

    I’m so excited about partnerships between Uber /Marriott. I’m already using Uber so why not get the extra points.

  • Avatar

    I like this partnership earning Bonvoy points using Uber. I think hotel syats complement very well with delivery and transportation. I’ll use it when I have the chance.

    I sure hope this blog post gets me a few miles on American so my 190,000+ miles don’t expire. Shame on American for still keeping an 18 month expiration on miles when United, Delta and Southwest have all eliminated miles expiration. American was always shabby for having 18 months expiration when the other airlines let you go 24 months.

    Oh! I have linked it and I just have to get an order from Uber Eats. I usually don’t order Ubers. My husband usually orders our rides. Maybe I should start doing that instead.

    This is a great benefit it would be interesting for it to be expanded as I do not see it avaialbe in LATAM, any plan of expanding so we can take advantage of the combination of benefits?

    It is still a benefit, even if the expenses with Uber, in general, are not very significant in the monthly budget.

    I guess this is their answer to hilton and lyft doing the same.

    This partnership is nothing truly exciting but gravy is gravy.

  • Avatar

    I see this partnership as an excellent way to top up AND round up account balance.

    Nice partnership, a shame it’s only avail. in the US for now

    Can’t wait to use this to triple dip on Uber Eats

  • Avatar

    Great way to earn some extra Bonvoy points if you’re going to spend money on Uber rides and eats anyway….any hotel/airline partners lining up for Lyft yet?

  • Avatar

    Easy way to earn some extra points from existing Uber usage. And it looks like this is a counter to the Lyft and Hilton / Delta relationship.

  • Avatar

    Let’s see if I can use this in Canada (with my US phone number and US Uber account). With Lyft, I can earn Hilton points, but not Delta.

  • Avatar

    I signed up right away and I have both cards that will let me maximize my earnings. I haven’t yet signed up for the Uber East pass through my Amex Gold card. That’s next on my to-do list.

    I got the impression that I would no longer earn the Uber points now that I’ll be earning Marriott points. I hope I’m wrong.

      I just reviewed it again, and I see nothing in the terms that suggests you won’t still be able to earn Uber Rewards, Uber’s in-house loyalty points program. We should be good accumulating both.
