DOHA: Ooredoo has announced Uber, a smartphone application evolving the way the world moves, as the newest international partner to join the 150+ Nojoom partner network.
The application can be downloaded for free directly from www.uber.com/app and is available around the world for Android, iPhone, BlackBerry 7.
Nojoom members can now earn and redeem Nojoom Points with Uber rides in over 140 cities across 40 countries.
For every $1 spent on an Uber service, Red members will earn 1 Nojoom Point, Silver members 1.5 and Gold members 2.
With a special offer marking the launch of the partnership, Nojoom members can earn double points until October 24.
Ahmed Ali Al Mohannadi, Director, Customer Experience and Segmentation, Ooredoo, said: “We are delighted to have Uber join our partner network. The Uber app is popular with a large segment of our customers and through the Nojoom programme we are happy to bring them rewards that matter.”
Zeid Hreish, Operations Manager, Uber, Doha, said: “Our partnership with Ooredoo stems from a common interest in providing customers with seamless connectivity.
“As we expand our services globally, we are happy to offer Ooredoo customers easy accessibility to cities they visit with the added bonus of reward points through the Nojoom programme.”
To earn Nojoom Points, customers must provide their mobile number and any feedback once the option to provide a rating on their experience becomes available at the end of every Uber trip.
The Uber app must remain open in order for the pop-up to appear. Points will be automatically added to the member’s account in the following month.
To further enhance members experience with Uber, points can also be redeemed for Uber credit via any of the current Nojoom redemption channels, including the website www.ooredoo.qa/en/nojoom or by downloading the Ooredoo App.
Once the redemption has been completed, members should take the voucher code and add it to the ‘Promotion’ screen section of their Uber app. To check whether the code has been accepted, members need to go to the ‘Payment’ screen and verify the amount as credit listed under the ‘Credit balances’ section. All credits will appear in Qatari riyals.
Every Ooredoo customer with a Qatar ID can enrol into Nojoom, which enables members to earn Nojoom Points each time they use an Ooredoo service or shop at Nojoom’s earn partners. Points can be redeemed at over 150 local and international Nojoom partners.
