Also, you can enroll more than one card for your Uber payments. You can even enroll a card under a different name. We’ll cover card enrollment in a different post. Example, if your company has a corporate card (name different than yours), you can enroll this and use this to pay for your official trips. You can even use a friend’s card (of course, with their consent!) or even your parents card.

DISCLAIMER: Kids, please don’t do this without your parent’s consent! And you didn’t get the idea from this blog. Hehe!
