American Express Uber Credits

One of the benefits of an The Platinum Card® from American Express  and American Express® Gold Card is the monthly Uber credits. The Amex Platinum offers $200 a year in Uber credit split into $15 monthly credits with a $35 credit in December. Amex Gold gives cardholders a $10 monthly uber credits. In order to enjoy these credits your card needs to be enrolled.

What if more than one person in a family carries an Amex Platinum or an Amex Gold? Can you load those credits onto a single Uber account? The answer is yes.

I make use of Uber all the time; however, my parents rarely used their credit in the midwest. So, for the last few years we’ve been loading their cards onto my Uber account so I’d have access to their Uber Credit.

I now have 5 Amex cards linked to my Uber profile. Between my parents and I we carry 3 Amex Gold cards and 2 Amex Platinums. That’s $60 a month in Uber credits loaded on my card every month, and in December…a whopping $100.

That’s a ton of monthly uber credit! Obviously…this requires giving someone your account info, so don’t do it if you don’t trust them.

American Express Platinum and Gold Uber Benefits

I found with both of these benefits that simply adding my Amex to my Uber account enrolled me. However, if for some reason this doesn’t work, you can do so here as well.

    American Express Gold:

    The Gold card is currently offering a 60,000 sign up bonus after $6,000 spent in 6 months.

    I find the gold card to be most useful for food purchases, earning 4x points at restaurants and grocery stores. You can recover almost all of the annual fee for the gold card $240 of the $250 if you take advantage of the monthly credits from food delivery and Uber. I like to accumulate additional Amex points by using shopping portals like Rakuten.

    I’ve tried multiple times to add my partner’s Gold and Platinum cards to my Uber Eats accounts (My Gold and Platinum cards are already in the wallet). Each time I try, I get the response “There’s a payment issue. There was a problem processing your credit card. Try again in a moment.” I’ve tried in both the app and on the website. My partner has her own Uber account but her Amex cards are not on it. Any suggestions?

    I think my question is the same as Jen’s from a year ago that didn’t get a reply…
    My husband and I each have our own Amex Plat and our own Uber account. Neither of us has used this month’s (April) credit yet. If I delete my Plat card as a payment method in my Uber account and add it to his Uber account so that both monthly credits will stack in his from now on, will we lose my unused April credit? Or will it show up so that he will get $30 right away for April?
    It might seem to be on the safe side I should just spend my April credit first, but for us it is actually quite complicated..
    We live in a rural area where there is NO Uber for many miles in any direction, so to use the credit we have to buy nonperishable groceries and have them delivered to family that live an hour and a half away… They store the cans and stuff in their garage till the next time we happen to be visiting every few months!

    Which credits are applied first, Uber credits or Amex credits?

    • Miles May 29, 2018

      Dennis – I couldn’t accurately tell you between the two as I only have Amex credits on the account, no uber credits per se.

    Hello, I would love your help. I am trying to give my uber credits to my daughter. Right now she is set up as a family member and has my Platinum loaded into her account for payment. The credit isn’t showing up for her, how do I have the credit go to her account?

    • Miles May 4, 2018

      Try delinking your card from her account, and if her additional cardmember is attched, delink it as well. Then just relink your card and see what happens

  • Joe Q April 10, 2018

    Now that your parent’s AMEX Platinum credit card info is loaded in your Uber account for primary payment, can your parents have the same AMEX Platinum credit card numbers loaded into their own accounts?

  • A. S. Mehta April 8, 2018

    So, do you have to toggle between the various Amex Platinum cards loaded every month to make one of the Uber charges from that primary card and then move it to secondary once it’s charged? I am not sure I follow your methodology in your post.

    • Miles April 8, 2018

      Each amex adds cumulatively, and each uber ride eats off the total so no toggling is required.

  • LauraPDX April 8, 2018

    This is good to know. Do you know if one can toggle the accounts back and forth? For instance let your parents use the credit if they are in a city like NY and then put it back on your card when they are home?

    • Miles April 8, 2018

      I believe you’d have to delete the payment option and add it to another account
