Thanks for this update. I went to zero travel March 16 and was worried about this.

Just April and May? Mine ends in early June and I haven't been able to use Uber since early March. Sad they didn't take the chance to just extend everyone by 6 months, considering they have 6-month periods only.
Mr. BoH and Segments like this.

They mention in the article they will evaluate further extensions for each month as it passes. I agree though that it would be sensible to just extend everyone by a certain time period.

Reach out to Twitter. I did and they offered to extend my now Platinum status through the next earnings window. I didnít push back about the lost Diamond status as I realized I was probably better off especially if they donít extend again in December.

For me the difference between Diamond and Platinum is minimal and I anticipate significantly reduced use of Uber through 2020. (Business travel unlikely until January).

yep, same here. I reached out to them prior to expiry and they told me to pound sand. My company prefers Lyft anyway, so i will probably give them a shot. Very stupid business decision from Uber ...

fwiw, my expiration was in August 2020, but my Diamond status was extended until mid-February 2021. There's no way I will meet the Diamond threshold by then...and when I do start traveling again, that will hurt, as the fixed pricing on my preferred route saves me quite a bit of money.
