Uber Visa Not Currently Available To New Customers

The Uber Visa is no longer mentioned in the Uber app and the application has been removed from the Barclays website. If you go to the Barclays page for current Uber Visa cardmembers and choose ‘not a current cardmember’ you’re taken to a page’s expired,

Thank you for your interest in a Barclays credit card.
Unfortunately this offer has expired.

We apologize for this inconvenience.

According to a Barclays spokesperson, “the card is not being retired” and the removal is “temporary..in might of current market conditions.” This doesn’t effect existing cardmembers, just the ability to apply for the card currently.

It’s not clear when the card will return, and whether it’ll have a refreshed value proposition (again) when it does. The card first launched in fall 2017, and was refreshed fall 2019.

  1. When it first came out, it was arguably the best no fee card ever launched: 4% at restaurants & 3% on travel…and NO foreign transaction fees.
    It was obvious it wouldn’t last, but they pretty much killed it with the 2019 devaluations & also required points be used as Uber Cash.

    My guess is this new deval will be the final nail in the coffin for this once great card.

  2. This also seems to leave the Chase Ink Preferred now as one of the few cards that has cell phone protection. That was the main reason I used the Uber card despite devaluations. Anyone know of other good no-annual fee cards with cell phone protection?

  3. @HK – The Wells Fargo Propel has no annual Fee, cell phone protection, and solid cash back categories.

  4. While having an $89 annual fee, the IHG Premier card also has cell phone protection. It comes with a annual “free” night. So, if you find yourself on a road trip or need to stage at an airport for an early flight, Holiday Inn has you covered for the free night.

  5. Doesn’t matter that it’s no longer available. I won’t use Uber (or Lyft) anyway. I’ll take a real taxicab, or a bus or other transit.

  6. Back when Uber was just black cars at very reasonable prices, I used it all the time. Now that I’m getting picked up by Jimbob in his beat to shit 96 Accord, I’m no longer interested.
