American Express Uber Credits
One of the benefits of an American Express Platinum card 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.
These Uber credits can be used for Uber rides or Uber Eats which makes the benefit more versatile. But, 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.
When I lived in Los Angeles, I made 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 card onto my Uber account so I’d have access to their Uber Credit. The credit doesn’t go to waste this way plus I’d always let them know if I got a tasty meal from Uber Eats on their 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.
How do you do it? So simple…just load the card on your account
Go to add payments and throw the card on it.
