Uber has recently launched public program of Visa local offers in select markets where you earn the Uber Credits (Can be used for Uber or Ubereats). You need to have Visa card added to your Uber account and enroll for the program. Once you enroll you will see offers to earn Uber credits at nearby places. The offers are available at various local participating places for any given month and depends on location where you have these participating partners rather than your home address.
All you have to do is purchase using the Visa card (use credit card option at checkout) registered on your Uber account at participating partners. While most of these places are restaurants there are quite a few interesting places such as Staples, Walgreens, Whole Foods Market etc.
The Uber credit is limited to dollar amount per purchase which varies from $20 to $100 based on the partner but you can make as many purchases in a day with each earning up-to the limit credit. Also note the terms mention that Gift Card purchases are excluded but in reality it is an YMMV and from my experience purchases having combination of Gift cards and regular items and which earn Uber credit within the maximum credit limit works fine.
One example of interest is Staples. As you can see from above you can earn Uber credits at Staples store and since you can earn 5x Ultimate Rewards points on all your purchases made with Chase Ink/ Ink plus card at office stores this would give you Uber credits for the purchases you might already be making. As mentioned earlier you can keep the purchases at amount lower that the maximum purchase amount ($200 for Staples as per the offer) on which you earn Uber credits which would hopefully trigger the credits.
So get the Uber credits using the Visa local offer while it lasts.
