I’ve had this strange bug happen when I’ve taken an Uber ride a few times now. I get home. Open my phone. And I see $0.00 on my screen.
Later, I get emailed a receipt for $0.00. The receipt does not show any credit getting me a free ride (and I don’t really have any referrals), so the $0.00 is confusing each time.
Then many hours later, I get another receipt telling me how much my ride really ways.
For example, my ride home yesterday first came up as this:
Then at 4am I received this receipt:
I knew something was wrong with the first, because Uber shows discounts this way:
I’m not complaining. I didn’t earn the free trips so it didn’t surprise me that they are later charging me. But I don’t understand why this is happening and I bet it could be really confusing to some people if they don’t realize they are actually getting charged.
Is this happening to anyone else?
