Ride for less with ASB and Uber

ASB and Uber have teamed up to offer personal ASB Visa credit card holders 15% off each Uber ride from 1 February until 31 July, 2016.

The innovative offer will see the ASB Uber saving credited back to the cardholder’s account.

Exclusive to personal ASB Visa credit card cardholders, there is no limit to the number of rides taken and money saved. 

ASB head of cards Glen Martin is delighted to be working alongside Uber, in what is an innovative Australasian first.

“ASB is constantly looking for new ways to add value to our product offering, so we’re delighted to be teaming up with Uber.

“The Uber brand is about making life easier for customers, and we see a synergy with ASB through our similar approaches to technology and innovation, and seamless payment services,” Mr Martin says.

“Uber has revolutionised the way we use personal drivers through its tap-to-ride booking system, and ASB is pleased to offer a financial benefit to our Uber-riding customers for the next six months,” Mr Martin says.

Oscar Peppitt general manager Uber New Zealand is looking forward to teaming up with ASB in an Australasian-first initiative.

“We’re thrilled to partner with ASB, a company that shares our vision of creating elegant, simple solutions to meet important consumer needs. Together, we’ll provide a meaningful combination of savings and convenience to tens of thousands of New Zealanders,” Mr Peppitt says.

Uber currently operates in two New Zealand cities: Wellington and Auckland.

How it works: The ASB and Uber 15%-off offer

Ride Uber and pay for your fare using a personal ASB Visa credit card to receive 15% off every ride between 1 February and 31 July, 2016.

Simply load your personal ASB Visa credit card details in the Uber app and use this to pay for your rides. 15% off the total cost will be automatically credited back by ASB to the credit card account after the ride has been paid for.
