Have you ever tried to get your old Uber receipts? Let me save you the search: it’s beyond difficult.
They have a new user interface that’s actually a pop up on your screen that makes you have to scroll through each and every ride. This is absolutely wonderful for you if you need recent ride information, but beyond a few rides, you’re out of luck because their dates don’t even include a year. So if you’ve successfully scrolled all the way back to January, you won’t actually know if that’s January 2022, 2021, or even before then.
In fact, to add to your headache of trying to find old Uber receipts, you’ll only be able to view 3 entries at 100% resolution on your screen at a time. Imagine having to scroll through years and years worth of ride receipts. It’s a nightmare. Case in point:
Now, you can always ask their customer service if they can send you the data. You will need to request this on their app, and not by email since they don’t monitor any email address accounts. Unfortunately, even if it’s your own data, they will make you jump through hoops to get it. See the message from Uber customer service below:
Instead of dealing with that nonsense, may I suggest the very easy to use email parser by cloudHQ, which is very aptly called: Export Emails to Google Sheets. Here’s how to use it:
- Click on the little box on the top left hand corner that selects all of your emails in Gmail, and then click on the “Save to” icon and select “Start wizard for export emails to Google Sheets.”
- Select the Ride Share Receipt wizard, which works across all ride share services like across Lyft or Uber. Scroll down until you find the wizard, and then click on “Start the Wizard” to start your Ride share spreadsheet report.
- The app will go through your entire email account, and make you the most beautiful spreadsheet report in Google Sheets that you could possibly want. It automatically includes:
- From email address
- To email address
- Subject line
- Date and time
- Email in PDF and text
- Trip Cost
- Trip Date
- Departure time
- Departure location
- Arrival time
- Arrival location
