PayMaya and Uber promo for Cebuanos

From October 20 to November 30, all first-time Uber riders will enjoy ₱150 off on each of their first two rides when they pay using PayMaya and the promo code PAYMAYACEBU. This promo is open to new and existing PayMaya app users and cardholders and is valid for UberX trips in Cebu. To avail the promo, PayMaya users need to have at least ₱300 in their account prior to requesting their ride.

PayMaya is the only prepaid wallet in the Philippines that is accepted on Uber (except in China and India). With the addition of PayMaya, riders now have more choices in terms of their payment options whenever they request an Uber ride. All they need to do is download PayMaya from Google Play Store or the Apple App Store and activate an account with any mobile number. Users will then have an instant 16-digit virtual Visa card that can be used to open an Uber account and hail convenient, safe, and cashless Uber rides.

More benefits of going cashless

Cashless transactions make life much easier for riders and Uber drivers, helping both avoid delays in payment settlement immediately after the end of the trip. It also eliminates the security risk of cash handling. AS part of PayMaya’s security advantages, a text message of the transaction will automatically be sent to the user’s mobile number at the end of the ride.

PayMaya also allows everyone with existing accounts to shop and pay online without a credit card. Consumers just need to download it from the Google Play or the App Store, register to get a PayMaya virtual Visa card and use for digital and online transactions.

Aside from the mobile app, users can also opt to have their own PayMaya physical prepaid card that can be used in different stores worldwide accepting Visa. A beep™ wallet variant is also made available allowing users to ride the MRT, LRT and other beep-powered transportation. Users who upgrade their PayMaya account can use it for peer-to-peer money transfers and ATM withdrawals.

Loading up the PayMaya account is also convenient as it can be topped up at any of the 15,000 reloading stations nationwide that include SM Malls Business Centers, Robinsons Department Stores, Unionbank ATMs, 7-Eleven stores with CLiQQ Kiosks, TouchPay Kiosks, and Smart Padala Centers, on top of online banking via BDO.
