Pros

You get 4% cash back on restaurants, takeout, fast food, bars and UberEats; 3% back on hotels, airfare and vacation home rentals; 2% on online purchases including Uber, online shopping and streaming services; and 1% cash back on all other purchases. There's a sign-up bonus, too: Earn $100 after spending $500 on purchases in the first 90 days. You can redeem rewards as cash back, Uber Cash or gift cards.

Cons

Unlike a lot of top cash-back cards, the Uber Visa Card has no introductory 0% APR period. When you redeem your rewards for UberCash, you don't get the same discount you'd get if you bought UberCash with regular cash.
