I work from home. That means I do not travel that often. However, when I do, I’m all about finding not only the lowest price but the best service available.
This past October, I traveled to Dallas to attend a conference. When I landed, I thought about getting a cab, but thought it was the perfect opportunity to try out one of the alternatives.
I was curious about Uber and not having had a chance to try it, I thought this was the perfect opportunity!
It was easy to use, the drivers were very friendly and it was a lot more cost-effective than using a cab! I actually can’t wait until I get a chance to travel again so I can grab an Uber at the airport.
SHOP YOUR WAY MEMBER UBER PERKS
I could have used other services for the ride sharing. However, being a Shop Your Way member paid me to ride.
All SYW members earn $2 in points for every ride they take through Uber. You need to make sure you connect your Uber account to your SYW account on their site so you get proper credit. But then, every time you need to use Uber, you’ll earn free points!
However, for Valentine’s Day (2/13 – 2/15), when you use Uber, you’ll earn $5 in points!

DO I REALLY NEED UBER?
I thought I did not because I don’t travel often. However, my husband and I are going out to dinner soon and we know we will each partake in a couple of adult beverages. That means we really do not want to worry about driving. We are using Uber to come take us to the restaurant and then drive us home – safely.
Uber is for more than traveling, you can use it when you don’t feel like driving, aren’t sure how to get there or when you need someone else to take the wheel for you.
All that is left to do is to grab an Uber ride and start earning points from Shop Your Way. Visit Uber | Shop Your Way Rewards and get started!
