OT, but where can you book an Uber train or coach?
Within the Uber app there is a 'Travel' tab. You may need to update to the latest version if you don't currently see it.

Switch to Just Eat and get points for every order on ba shopping could be an option?

I assume you’ve had our 300 points for one Uber eats order on there too

Hi go to account in the uber app and then to settings, scroll down and there is a section for rewards

You will then need to put in your Ba executive account and password and then it will ask you to confirm to link accounts

I have an option to link Aeroplan. Not terrifically useful.

The option was there for me, entered details and… it said it hadn’t worked. Only for me to click back into it and be told it had worked. So definitely BA IT in the background which is reassuring.

Working for me. Annoyingly missed the first trip I’d made in two years yesterday.

No one is going to be making Tesco 2000-2008 balances out of this. But will be a useful way of keeping Avios balances alive without ever thinking about it.

Odd. I don't have the rewards section. Uninstalled app and reinstalled app, same thing.

Logged in via a browser on may laptop and also no rewards section, starting to wonder whether its being pushed by eligible profile - and whether the fact I virtually only use the app in the US is resulting in me being filtered out.

In Settings, under Rewards, I can only see Aeroplan; not British Airways Executive Club.

Has anyone had any luck registering a non-UK BAEC account? I just get a message saying there was a problem, please try again. I have UK Uber account but my BAEC is registered in Ireland. This would be a decent offer for me, if I can make it work, as I travel by Uber from Heathrow to the City and back once a week.

Yes I managed it just now- very easy, go into settings, select BA Exec Club account icon and then press two or three buttons.

I get the dreaded 'Something went wrong' as soon as I try to log in to my BA account via Uber - which is exactly what shuts me off the Qatar Avios link-up too. No idea who to raise this with...

App is up to date and no sign of BA link under settings. Have signed out and back in again. Any chance that is is an Apple v Android issue? I'm on an iPhone...or is there some other parameters that may be affecting this, like how often you use Uber...I would only use a few times a year, so I am never going to earn a F trip to the US out of this!😂 😂 😂
