guys as someone that got a nice discount on these its not worth it and here's why

Uber stops giving you the discounts that it offers on its own

so you lose out in one way or another, basically you get this particular discount but not Uber's regular discounts

for ex. my Uber to my friends place with a gift card cost $8.93 and my friend that was standing right beside me his price was $5.53

so I guess uber has no incentive to offer me discounts if I have gift cards loaded on my account
Dont' think that's because of giftcard load,probably price hike, you can have LYFT to compare at same time.

I'm telling you I've seen it in action, my friend was standing beside me and his uber to the same location was cheaper

and prior to me loading gift cards I would regularly get discounts just like him

so you're basically giving up unknown quantity of discounts for a known quantity of discounts imo

which is fine, but you should know that's what's happening

Thanks I just ordered one, and only one as it wouldn’t let me place two in my order.

Got one for travel trips... Too bad the gift card only works in Canadian Uber zones. Would be nice if it worked everywhere with a conversion like the Starbucks app

Are you talking about the trip $ calculation or that it gives different trip cost to users who has a gift card in app?

Yes I was about to point out, these won't work in US - I don't know why the CA balance can't be utilized for US trips while there?
