This makes the diamond and platinum levels basically worthless. Now the top diamond perk is what, the ability to talk to an actual support person when you need to?

the changes seem to be for California only based on the terms page? https://www.uber.com/legal/en/document/?country=united-states&lang=en&name=uber-rewards-benefit-terms

Shouldn’t surprise anyone, Uber got hammered by Covid on the ride share side, and the sales growth on eats comes at a loss since they offer incentives to get people to use the platform, but doordash and GrubHub have trounced them in some markets. Losing billions was ok when they were showing growth, but now shareholders are thinking of abandoning then as Ubers future looks bleak unless a breakthrough in self driving tech comes quickly.

And that’s relevant because…? The economy and stock market are not on the same page.

There are also changes coming to Diamond member benefits.

3 Free Uber Eats Deliveries = Double Points on Uber Eats

“Complimentary Upgrades” are going away, and instead Diamond members will earn 6 reward points for every dollar spent on Uber Black and Black SUV.

A pretty big devaluation…
