Are you a frequent Uber or Lyft user? If you are, you should consider the membership that each app offers.
Uber One costs $9.99 per month and offers 6% Uber Cash back on rides, up to 10% off deliveries, and $0 delivery fee on eligible deliveries.
Lyft Pink costs $9.99 per month and offers 5% off standard rides, free priority pickup, a free Grubhub+ membership, and discounts on Lyft bike & scooter rides.
Our take: Uber One is a good value if you order through Uber Eats more than twice per month. Lyft Pink is a good value if you use Grubhub or if you regularly spend more than $200 per month on Lyft rides.
Read on to learn more about each subscription and how to decide if either one is worth your money!

How much do you have to spend to make Uber One worth it?
If you’re mainly a rideshare user, Uber One will start to pay for itself if you typically spend around $165 a month on rides.
Here’s the math: Uber one is $9.99 per month and you get 6% Uber Cash back on rides. You will save $10 after you spend $165 on rides. Everything after that is pure savings.
But remember, the 6% discount on rides is paid in Uber Cash. You can only use Uber Cash for future Uber rides and Uber Eats deliveries.
If you’re a frequent Uber Eats users, Uber One will pay for itself faster. With $0 delivery fees and the 10% discounts, savings will add up faster. Delivery fees are typically $0.50–$5.99, so Uber One pays for itself after approximately 2 deliveries.

Which is better, Uber One or Lyft Pink?
Lyft Pink has a longer list of benefits, but Uber One is overall a better value if you frequently use Uber Eats.
But if you’re a heavy rideshare user and don’t order food deliveries very often, Lyft Pink is probably best for you.
If you order a lot of Uber Eats and also do Uber rides every now and then, Uber One is likely the better deal.
