American Express and Uber announced a new partnership today, where American Express cardmembers will earn double points when using Uber.
In addition, American Express cardholders can redeem membership rewards points at 1 cent per mile for Uber car services.
With an eligible American Express Card enrolled in the Membership Rewards program and the latest version of the Uber app for iPhone you can choose to:
- Earn 2x points on eligible Uber rides
- Use points to pay eligible Uber rides *
How do I enroll in this program?
Ensure you have an eligible American Express Card on your Uber account and the latest version of the Uber app for iPhone. You’ll see a screen announcing the membership program with an “Enroll Me” button.
How do I choose whether I’d like to earn points or use points for my ride?
After setting your pickup location, you have the option to choose which Card you’d like to use for your ride. Ensure your enrolled American Express Card is selected and you will see an option to earn 2x points or (if you are authorized) use points to pay for your ride.
If you are only eligible to earn points for your rides and not use points, you will earn 2x points each time you take an eligible ride and will see a confirmation in the Uber app and your email receipt from Uber.
I’m a huge Uber fan, and it’s nice to know that if I use one of my American Express cards, I’ll be able to earn double points.
Do you plan on using your American Express cards for Uber now?
