I used the Uber on Saturday evening, and the points were there on Sunday when I checked.

Same here, I used Ubers twice this weekend and the points were there the next day. So indeed it would be a great way to save expiring Avios.

Anyone else still not seeing the link in the Uber app yet? Latest update doesnít seem to fix it either. I keep seeing Aeroplan and Air Canada as my only option for linking rewards. No use when Iím UK based. Thanks!

My link came a couple of weeks after other so I am not sure how they are rolling this link out.

Today I bought a low value rail ticket for travel in a few weeks time, £3.60. I got the PDF ticket by email in a few minutes, and the 3 Avios were awarded into my BAEC account in 38 minutes.

The connection just flickers on my Android device and therefore cannot link them up. Useless!

As someone who only uses trains across the water ( I live in NI) a few times a year, what would be the advantage of booking rail via Uber at 1 avios per £, when Trainline I think is 3 per £? Are fares cheaper or is Trainline unreliable at crediting avios?

I suppose the biggest advantage of Uber is that the avios post very quickly.

Trainline from what I can see is 3 avios per £ for a new customer, but only 1 per £ for existing customers. I used to use trainline but when they started adding booking fees it made them more expensive than other companies so I switched elsewhere. I haven't used them in along time so no idea if they still charge booking fees.

Transport for Wales is currently 4 avios per £, although in my experience it takes a very long time for the avios to credit - 5 or 6 months is my experience so far.

The 10% cashback is another advantage. And no booking fees.
