Uber to leave London? Don’t exchange your Clubcard vouchers for credit!

If you live in London and use Uber to get from A to B, you probably welcomed their partnership with Tesco Clubcard.

Exchanging your Clubcard vouchers for Uber credit is a ‘genuine’ 3 x face value offer.

For every 50p of vouchers you convert, you receive £1.50 of Uber credit.  No catches although, for clarity, you can’t use it for UberRUSH credit.  It is only valid for rides in the UK.

What’s even better, you can also use the credit in the UberEATS app to order yourself takeaway food.

However last week news emerged that Transport for London had decided to not renew Uber’s taxi licence which expires on 30th September.

Uber has announced to appeal so the service is likely to continue in the short term.  Realistically, I also expect Uber to make the long-term changes required to meet the issues raised by Transport for London. 

For now, however, it might be sensible to only exchange Clubcard points just before taking a ride, or use them for something else.

Of course if you live in the UK outside of London this won’t affect you.  Uber will continue to operate as usual and your Tesco credit will still be valid.

  1. I don’t see much of a risk here. Uber is likely to continue throughout the appeal process and I’m sure that a compromise will be reached.

    Even if it isn’t, Uber drivers can just get licenced by a different authority and work in London and they will do that.

    For instance, in Birmingham where Uber is legal, a lot of drivers are licenced from Wolverhampton, which I understand is quicker, cheaper and easier. Then many also operate in Coventry and beyond, where Uber isn’t officially licenced by the council.

    And, of course, the Clubcard credit can be used outside London. If you’re a regular Uber user, the credit doesn’t tend to last that long to need to worry about it!
