Careem REWARDS has now launched across the region, instantly becoming one of the largest rewards programme with over 33 million users.

Mudassir Sheikha, Careem’s co-founder and CEO, said: “We are so thankful to our customers that we wanted to recognize their loyalty with something in return – Careem is the first company in our industry to launch something like this in the region, and it’s a unique programme that rethinks how loyalty schemes work and focuses on simplicity of use and value.”

He explained, “Someone who uses Careem daily to commute will, as a result of Careem REWARDS, get at least two free rides per month.”

As of now, you’ll earn Careem points with every ride you take and can redeem them for Careem credits or charity donations. It’s all about helping you (and you helping others) get more out of your rides. Have a look below and find out everything you need to know.

There’s no registration or sign-up needed; every time you ride, you’ll automatically earn Careem points. Every one dirham is equal to 20 Careem points! Go ahead, check out how many points you already have in the side menu of the app, below your name.

What can you do with your points

In just a few clicks you can donate to charity by feeding a child for the day with 2,500 Careem points, or for an entire week with 15,000 points, funding a child’s education for the day with 6,000 points, or even donating a textbook with 12,500 points.  

You can also convert your Careem points to free rides, and redeem AED 15 with every 10,000 points.

Level up to unlock GOLD

You can easily upgrade to our Gold status by taking 15 rides in the same month, and unlock exclusive benefits; including 50% more points on every ride, priority customer support, and unique offers and discounts in your city. Your Careem Gold status will be active for that same month, and the following two months. You can easily maintain your status by taking 15 rides every month.

And this is just the first stage…

We already have partnerships in place, including schemes with Emirates Skywards, STC Qitaf, Shukran, Air Miles, Etihad and Etisalat Smiles but soon, you will also be able to spend the points you earn on rewards and discounts with more top-tier partners and well-known brands. We can’t say anything yet, but trust us and start earning Careem points.

The launch of Careem REWARDS is part of Careem’s ongoing platformisation strategy as we continue to create the leading tech-enabled platform in the region.

Stay tuned as we’ll be adding exciting new benefits soon!

Yalla, let’s reward!
