Uber now selling gift cards. https://www.uber.com/gift-cards/?utm_city=HQ&utm_channel=EMAIL&utm_campaign=send-marketing

(Pardon me if it's not a new thing.)

Does anyone know if this would code as travel for both the 3X and for the $300 annual credit?
TOFTT and let us know :)

Is that in the T&Cs, or from DoC?

Unfortunately the GC's are being sold by CashStar so they won't code as travel https://uber-m.cashstar.com/buy/

I read all 10 pages of this thread - someone said PGGM should work but no one reported that they've actually tried. I don't have the card yet so can't try it on my own. Can anyone positively confirm that PGGM works for the $300?

Thanks!

You don't need to actually do PGGM, any travel purchase will work.

I thought some cashstar GCs pass on the correct category?

Some do, most don't, I guess someone could TOFTT and try but I doubt it'll work here.

Only a $10 TOFTT.
So go ahead and TOFTT

I'm not following, sorry. Do you mean that simply booking and canceling within 24h will trigger it (and it's not necessary to do the whole e+ upgrade)? My question was more about the cancellation, not about the e+ thing, really.

I'm not saying you should do that and they can always claw the credit back but that should trigger the credit.

Thank you, I will just try to align some work related travel quickly. I was simply curious about what counts and what doesn't.

Do some reading. Anything that codes as travel will count.

Please update if you find anything.  I'm in the same situation -- I have till 12/10 or so to get the $300 charged, but my next hotel bookings aren't coming up until 12/16 and I don't want to book a non-refundable rate (El Al flights, afraid of changes with the latest labor action).

What are the chances that they claw it back if I book something refundable and cancel?

Tried buying points from SPG for the $300 travel credit. Did not work. Anyone know if united or AA code as travel when buying points?
