I could manufacture reasons to use Uber, sure, but that's not $ I'd normally spend, so the extra $100 for the AF is still a problem for me.
I kind of agree with this, because I use Uber almost exclusively when I travel and that's usually outside the US. The only time I use it at home is the once every few months when I'll Uber home after a night of drinking too much, or maybe to/from the airport. If I use it on a work trip, I can't use the credit because it will reduce the receipt I submit on my expenses.

That being said, if Uber Eats continues to work, I have no problem ordering lunch at work for "free" since I'd often go out for lunch anyway.
