searching repeater sub field value with WP_User_query

    hello in my project I have a coupon list (repeater) for each registered user, the coupon comes with expiry date and coupon amount that can be used.

    I came across this tutorial under “4. Sub custom field values” that I can search for repeater fields with WP_query using the meta_key but it doesn’t seem to be working with WP_user_query. Does anyone have experience with it?

    updated, found the solution!

    there is a similar “post_where” filter for WP_User_Query, that you can filter out the repeater sub field values.

    function user_meta_callback( $user_query )
    	global $wpdb;
    	$user_query->query_where = str_replace("meta_key = 'coupons_$", "meta_key LIKE 'coupons_%", $user_query->query_where);
    add_filter('pre_user_query', 'user_meta_callback');
    $q = new WP_User_Query(array(
    	'numberposts'	=> -1,
    	'meta_query'	=> 
    			'relation'		=> 'OR',
    				'key'		=> 'coupons_$_date',
    				'compare'	=> '>=',
    				'value'		=> '2018-11-01',
    				'type'		=> 'DATE'
