In the wake of a similar announcement from its chief rival Lyft, Uber announced a rider rewards program Wednesday to give loyal users perks for spending money in the app.
The program is almost exactly like the new Lyft Rewards program in that both track points you’ve accumulated in the app and give you rewards once you hit a certain milestone — and both are similarly named. But the two diverge from there.

When you’re hailing a ride, you probably flip between the Uber and Lyft apps to see which one will give you the best deal. But what if one of them offered you rewards in exchange for your loyalty?
Lyft is banking on that idea with its forthcoming rewards program. 
The company will soon let users earn points for all the money they spend in the app on Lyft rides. Once a user has earned enough points, they can redeem them for Lyft Rewards, such as a ride in a more luxurious car or discounts on future rides. Points will be tracked in the app as part of a user’s profile.
