Uber and Google Wallet

A seamless payment system joins the simple car service with a new discount

Black car and taxi service Uber is rolling out a new offer today encouraging users to link up their Google accounts and pay for their car fare with Google Wallet. Following an update in late June that introduced the ability to sign-in simply with Google Wallet to the service, new users of Uber can now get a $20 discount on their fare for paying with Google Wallet. Existing users aren't left in the cold either, and are offered a $10 discount for using Wallet.

Uber has attempted from the start to make the process of calling a car and paying for the ride as seamless as possible, letting everything be managed by a smart phone app. This is one more step in that direction, as Google Wallet makes it easy to switch between different cards tied to a single account, and keep your payments all in one location.

You can grab a download of the Uber app from the Play Store link above, and link up your Google Wallet account in just a few taps from the settings.
