Free Uber Pass membership with Aeroplan credit cards!

Today, there’s good news for Aeroplan members who like to order takeout with Uber Eats! Notably, Aeroplan credit card holders can now receive a FREE Uber Pass membership! This free membership is valid for 3, 6 or 12 months depending on your type of Aeroplan credit card.

Overall, it seems that Aeroplan and Uber are expanding their partnership which started in 2020. I’ve previously written about how you can earn Aeroplan points on your Uber Eats orders via the Aeroplan estore.

Here are the details of this exciting announcement between Uber and Aeroplan.

What is Uber Pass?

Benefits of Uber Pass

Uber Pass is Uber’s paid membership program that rewards users with extra benefits and perks. This includes:

  • Unlimited $0 delivery fees on Uber Eats orders of at least $15 and grocery orders of at least $40.
  • 5% savings on Uber Eats orders of at least $15.
  • Rides Perks: Exclusive monthly offers for members on Uber.

For Canadians, Uber Pass costs $9.99/month. But now, Aeroplan credit card holders can receive a one-time free Uber Pass membership which must be activated before September 7, 2022.

Also, keep in mind that each Uber account is limited to activating one free Uber Pass membership, regardless of the number of Aeroplan credit cards you have.
