Get every third Uber trip for free with the Westpac Altitude card.

Uber is super convenient. Almost too convenient. If you’re anything like me, the cost can sometimes outweigh the perks when you scan over your bank statement in horror and realise how much you’ve spent on the app this month.

However, Westpac’s latest offer can help you cut back on your Uber bills until the end of the year. Here's how:

The hack

If you sign up for the Westpac Altitude credit card, you’ll get up to $20 off every third Uber ride you take until 31 December 2017. If your trip exceeds $20, the remaining amount will be charged to your Westpac card.

There is a catch, of course. You can only redeem up to $250 during the entire promotional period. However, this still means you could enjoy approximately 12 free Uber trips in between now and New Year’s Eve.

The card comes with a $100 annual fee, so check out our review of the card before signing up to decide if it’s right for you.

This isn’t the only offer available from the bank either. If you sign up for Uber by 31 December, you can get your first Uber trip (up to $25) for free when you enter the promo code “westpac25” in the promotions area of your app.
