Uber Credit Card Temporarily Closed to New Applicants

Much like trying to hail a rideshare with a poor data signal, anyone hoping to apply for the Uber Credit Card is going to have to wait awhile.

The card's issuer, Barclays, confirms that the card is currently closed to new applicants. If you attempt to access the application online, you’re greeted with a message that the offer “has expired.” However, Barclays says the card is not being discontinued.

“This temporary removal was made in light of current market conditions,” says Nicole Dye-Anderson, a representative for Barclays. There is no time frame for when the card will open to new applicants again.

Existing Uber Credit Card customers can continue using their cards as before, earning:

  • 3% back in Uber Cash on eligible dining, hotels and airfare.

  • 1% back in Uber Cash on all other purchases.

Earned Uber Cash can be applied to your account once you earn $50.  Once it’s in your account, Uber Cash can be applied toward Uber purchases, including Uber Eats.
