Cargo, which places boxes with items for sale in ridesharing vehicles, is launching the Cargo Store App to offer Uber customers a curated shopping experience during their trip. Shoppers can choose from Cargo Boxes and “Daily Deals” that feature products like a Nintendo Switch, Amazon Echo or Away luggage.
Riders also earn up to one random reward per day when they open the Cargo Store App, ranging from discounted tickets to free products. This feature is being pitched as a marketplace for Cargo brand partners to reach Uber customers through exclusive discounts, products and content.
Additionally, the app lets riders purchase discounted digital movies in-ride through a partnership with Universal Pictures. All purchases come with 10% back in Uber credits that can be redeemed on future Uber rides or Cargo purchases.
