  • How to Rack Up Free Frequent Flyer Miles When You Use Lyft, Uber, and UberEats

Published January 2, 2023

If you use ride-sharing services like Lyft, Uber, or food delivery service UberEats, you’ll be happy to know that there are two new promotions that can help you earn frequent flyer miles automatically.

Alaska/Lyft link rewards

First, if you use Lyft, you can link your Alaska Mileage Plan account to your Lyft account and earn 1 mile per $1 spent on Lyft rides. This is a great way to rack up miles quickly, especially if you’re a frequent Lyft user.

Marriott/Uber link rewards

For those who use Uber or UberEats, you can link your Uber account to your Marriott Bonvoy rewards account (which is free to set up) and earn points on some Uber rides and food delivery orders.

Note: Even if you don’t use Alaska Airlines or Marriott, both of these programs have numerous travel partners that you can redeem your rewards with.

For example, Marriott allows you to transfer points from Marriott Points to American Airlines miles and many other major airlines.

And Alaska Airlines allows you to transfer points to many Oneworld partner airlines, which can help you get deals on flights to Europe, Asia, and most domestic locations.

Think of it this way: even if you don’t accumulate enough points for a full flight, don’t worry – your points or miles can potentially be used for first-class upgrades, rental cars, or hotel rooms.

Bottom Line

Both programs are free to join and take less than 5 minutes to set up, so it’s definitely worth checking out. So before you use Lyft, Uber, or UberEats next time, don’t forget to link your accounts and start earning those frequent flyer miles!

These marketing promotions occasionally come and go, and there’s no guarantee how long they will last, so we encourage you to jump on this one asap to start racking up points while you can to start locking in those free travel opportunities!
