Here's what you should know about the American Express Platinum card benefit:
What you get: Up to $200 in Uber Cash for rides or eats orders – up to $15 in credits per month, plus a $20 bonus in December (up to $35 total). You'll also become an Uber VIP and be matched with top-rated drivers, where available.
How to get it: Add the American Express Platinum card as a payment method to your Uber account. You must add your card through the Uber App (for iOS or Android). The American Express Platinum card Uber Cash benefit posts to the app by 5 p.m. HST, on the first day of each month. If you do not see it there, simply call the number on the back of your card.
How to use it: In order to use the American Express Platinum card Uber benefit, the “Uber Cash” function at the top of the app must be enabled. This will allow you to apply credits to the cost of the ride when booking. To check how many Uber credits you have left for the month, tap the Uber Cash Balance menu icon in top left corner of the app. If there aren’t enough Uber credits to cover the cost of the ride, Uber will charge the difference to the American Express Platinum card linked to your account. Cardholders can use the Uber app to apply credits to the cost of rides anywhere in the U.S., but only primary accountholders are eligible for this free benefit – not authorized users.
