American Express has rolled out some new benefits to Platinum, Gold and Green Card members starting February 1. I’d been seeing hints about the new benefit for my Amex Gold Card since I signed up using the Resy offer a few months ago, and I finally received an email this week alerting me that the offer is live.
Latest Amex Offer Gives Cardholders a Monthly Credit on Uber Eats (or Uber)
American Express has provided a complimentary Uber Eats Pass subscription to cardholders with the Platinum, Gold or Green Card for a few months now. This service typically costs $9.99 per month. The benefits of an Uber Eats Pass include a $0 delivery fee and 5% off orders over $15 at eligible restaurants. The subscription is for 12 months, so make sure to set a reminder to cancel if you don’t want it to continue down the line. Hopefully, this becomes an ongoing benefit for the Amex cards.
In addition, the website for the Gold Card had shown a banner for a bonus of $10 in Uber Cash each month coming in “early 2021” since I signed up for the card. This offer is live as of February 1!
This provides Gold card account owners with a $10 monthly credit for Uber or Uber Eats. This benefit is most likely meant to take the place of the Airline Incidental Credit that expires at the end of 2021. However, as an added bonus, you can use both credits for 2021 meaning you can get substantially more value out of the Gold Card this year. This is also in addition to the $10 per month Grubhub benefit that the Gold Card offers.
How Do I Sign Up?
The two offers are straightforward. The Uber Eats Pass sign up is listed on the login Home page under the “Amex Offers and Benefits”. It will look like this:
The Uber Cash for rides or food delivery is also easy to use. It will show in your Uber or Uber Eats app once you make your Gold Card the default payment method. Stacking the $10 monthly credit with the Uber Eats Pass Offer will help the funds go a bit further when ordering food delivery. If you are using the credit for rides, it will cover the cost as well. The Uber Cash credit should be automatically applied to your next order or ride. It can be done in 4 easy steps.
- Ensure you have the latest version of the Uber or Uber Eats app.
- Open the Uber or Uber Eats app.
- When placing an order, confirm that you payment method is set to Uber Cash.
- Complete the order.
This added bonus really ups the value proposition of the Amex Gold Card. With the Resy offer providing 60,000 Membership Rewards points after $4,000 in spend, 20% back as a statement credit at restaurants up to $250, a $120 Grubhub credit, $100 Airline Incidental Credit, the new $120 Uber Credit plus multiple other benefits … this card is hard to pass up with an annual fee of only $250.
