Gift cards are a convenient way to give someone you care about an Uber ride. They're easy to purchase and work just like regular Uber credits. Here are the steps to buy a gift card from Uber.

1. Open the Uber App

Open the Uber app. Download the app from your mobile device's App Store and install it, if necessary. Open the Uber app on your phone or tablet and log in to your account (if you get a prompt). Choose the menu icon on the top left of your screen. Select Payment. Choose a Gift Card.

2. Scroll Down and Select Payment Methods

In the Payment Methods section, scroll down and select Payment Methods. You'll see a list of all available payment methods for you. Tap the one that's right for you.

3. Select Gift Cards

Once you decide on a gift card amount and delivery date, it's time to select the recipient of your Uber credit. To do so, enter the recipient's email address in the box provided and click Next.

4. Select the Gift Card You Want To Purchase

You can buy a physical or an electronic gift card from Uber in different denominations. Uber will ship the physical gift cards to you, while electronic versions are available via email immediately after purchase.

5. Enter Your Payment Information

If you see a prompt with a screen asking for your credit card number, security code and expiration date, enter that information. If not, click Pay With Another Method at the bottom of the page and use another payment method.

6. Review Your Order Details

Review your order details, including your billing address and delivery date. Check that the billing address is correct. This is where Uber will send the gift card, so ensure it's up-to-date and accurate. Check that the delivery date is correct (if you're buying a physical gift card). Review how much money is on your Uber account balance.

7. Click Confirm Order To Complete Your Purchase

To complete your order, confirm your order by clicking Confirm Order. Payment method and delivery address and card details.

8. Check Your Email Inbox for a Confirmation Email From Uber

Once you place your Uber gift card order and Uber has processed it, it will ship it out. Once your card has shipped, you'll receive a confirmation email from Uber with tracking information so that you can monitor its progress.

9. Follow the Instructions To Activate It

Click on the activation link in the email message to enter your code and activate it. Enter the code in the box at the bottom of this page, and click Activate Card.

10. Wait for the Gift Card To Arrive at Your Email Address

You will receive your Uber gift card at your email address. Once it arrives, go to Uber's website and log in using your account information. From there, go to My Wallet and click Add Gift Card. Enter the code that's on the back of the card and confirm by clicking Add Card. Your balance will now show up on this page.
