Uber Rewards Customers for Shopping During Rides
In another boon for e-commerce, Uber is promoting backseat shopping.
Uber has launched the Cargo Store App, allowing Uber riders to shop during their rides and earn 10% back in Uber credits on each purchase.
Riders can purchase products from a curated marketplace when they are on-trip in their Uber and earn 10% back in Uber Voucher credits on every purchase. After they make their purchase, Cargo will ship the item directly to their home from a nearby warehouse, free of charge. Drivers also immediately earn an extra $1 every time a passengers order through the Cargo Store App for the first time. Uber riders can download the Cargo Store App and begin earning rewards by scanning their driver’s Cargo Box QR code.
Riders can enjoy up to one reward per day when they open the Cargo Store App. After scanning their driver’s Cargo Box QR code, they pick from a selection of facedown “Cargo Cards” with randomized rewards. Depending on which card they pick, they can win a wide range of items like Uber Voucher credits, a $30-discount on SeatGeek tickets, or premium products like an Oculus Go Headset or Christian Louboutin Nail Colour. This is a marketplace for Cargo brand partners to reward riders with exclusive discounts, products, and content that creates surprise and delight.
Cargo’s partnership with Universal Pictures adds even more content to the Cargo Store App. Passengers will be able to choose from single-movie options for $5 or $10, or bundled options for $15 or $20, discounted up to 50%. Passengers make their selection through the Cargo Store App and redeem their purchase on the Movies Anywhere app.
