Careem Rewards has been amazing since its inception in November 2018. With the introduction of the elite tier Careem Gold for riders who take 15 rides every month, Careem has made its top riders earn over 4.5% cashback on every ride. And this week (July 2019), Careem introduced the option to redeem Careem Rewards points for CareemNOW food orders. This gives us more options on how to redeem our Careem Rewards points, and better redemption values 🙂

Careem Rewards for CareemNOW Orders

Careem added the following two new options to redeem Careem Rewards:

  1. Redeem 11,000 points for AED 20 on CareemNOW
  2. Redeem 18,500 points for AED 35 on CareemNOW (Careem Gold only)

How to redeem it on CareemNOW:

  1. Redeem the rewards points to get a CareemNOW Promo Code.
  2. Copy this CareemNOW Promo Code and use this on the CareemNOW app to reduce your food order total.
  3. In case you would like to use the promo code later, go back to Careem Rewards history on the Careem App, and get the code again.

Terms and Conditions of the Redemption:

  • Valid for one-use only
  • Code expires September 30, 2019 (assuming the code was redeemed in July 2019)
  • Standard Delivery fee applies (typically AED 7)

Careem Rewards points expire in the next half of the year that it was earned. But if you redeem Careem Rewards for CareemNOW orders, you have only 2-3 months to use that specific generated promo code. If you redeem your reward in July, you have until September 30, 2019. This means that you shouldn’t redeem your Careem Rewards points until you’re definitely sure that you have a Careem NOW order coming up. Also, make sure that your CareemNOW order total is equal to or greater than your voucher amount of AED 20 or AED 35, since it is a one-time use voucher.

Let’s take a look at each option and how the redemption value turns out to be.
