If you haven’t yet signed up for Careem, use a friend’s referral link to sign up and get AED 20 credit. #BeCareem (Note: You have to be a new user signing up using your friend’s link to create your account to receive the credit)

Once, you’ve signed up, make sure that you go ahead with the 3 must-do tasks to help you maximize your in-app experience with Careem.

1) Change the Default Payment Option:

The default option to make payments is “Cash”. So, add a credit card and set it as default, else you’ll end up having to pay all cash for your rides.

2) Link a Loyalty Program

Careem has the option to link a Loyalty Program like

Emirates Skywards

Etihad Guest

Shukran Rewards

Etisalat Smiles


3) Add Favorite Destinations

Save a bunch of your frequently used locations like home, work, school etc. on your Careem App. This helps you select them quickly whenever you’re requesting your next ride. To do this, type an address in the Pickup Location box, and tap the star icon next to it and then name it and save the location.


4) (Optional) Set up a Business Profile

And optionally, for people who travel for work, go ahead and set up a Business Profile on Careem.

This helps you separate business rides from personal rides, and expensing options, as well as summarized reports.

As you take rides, don’t forget to check your accumulated Rewards in the menu to redeem for Careem credit or make donations. Read more about Careem Rewards on ThePointsHabibi.

Don’t forget to invite your friends and family to Careem for free AED 15 credit per invitee with the “Free Rides” option from the menu.
