Can I Use My Prepaid Card On Uber & Lyft?

does uber take prepaid cards

Yes! You most certainly can use your prepaid debit card with Uber. In the past we ran into some issues with adding our prepaid card and PayPal account but eventually the issues resolved itself. Although Uber is the most popular ride-sharing service, we also love Lyft. Lyft isn't available in as many cities as Uber is but creating an account with them is much more easier. We currently have prepaid cards connected with both Uber & Lyft, so yes we can say with 100% certainty you can setup your account using a prepaid card.

💡Tip: As of 2020 Lyft has increased their prices based on need which may or may not affect some of our readers. Lyft algorithm tries to predict how desperate their riders are to get to their destination and whether or not they have any other means of getting there. We recently scheduled a Lyft but forgot to move our funds from our reserve account into the balance, so our ride was canceled, no, biggie. However, we we tried to get a new ride the price went from 7$ to $10. We checked a minute later and the price was $14. We did not book that ride. Our tip to our readers is if possible, schedule your Lyft ride to lock in a cheaper price. Once you schedule your pickup, the cost of that trip cannot increase unless you change destinations. Also compare Lyft with Uber. The same trip destination was $11 on Lyft but $9 on Uber when we decided to compare it. So definitely compare prices between the two ride sharing app and when possible always schedule a ride and make sure funds are available on your prepaid card balance.

Uber Visa® Debit Card

We feel it would be irresponsible of us not to mention the Uber debit card for drivers. If you are an Uber driver you may definitely want to look into this debit card as a replacement to your current payout option because Uber offer cardholders rewards and other benefits.
