American Airlines announced their latest partnership today, and its with the popular ride sharing company Uber. Uber has several partnerships currently including with United Airlines, Starwood, and IHG Hotels. Executive Platinum members will want to take note, since they’ll be given a free ride with Uber, even if they’ve already used Uber before.

American Airlines

Per American Airlines,

American Airlines is partnering with Uber to create a door-to-door streamlined service to help customers get from home or work to the airport and back. The companies will work together to provide customers faster service, better airport navigation, rider promotions and mileage promotions.

American’s customers can now set a reminder for an Uber ride at the push of a button with the help of Uber’s Ride Reminder. After booking their flights on, American will send the e-ticket confirmation via email, and the customer can click on the “Remind me to Uber” icon to set a reminder for their ride.

American will become the first airline to provide a special one-time offer to select elite members. AAdvantage Executive Platinum members who hold that status as of March 1, 2016, will receive a unique code for up to $25 off their next Uber ride – regardless of whether they have used Uber before. These members will receive their unique code in March.

For a limited time, customers who use their AAdvantage® Aviator™ MasterCard® as the method of payment for Uber purchases will earn two additional bonus miles for every $1 spent on their Uber rides from February 7 through July 31, 2016.  Total bonus miles will be awarded after the promotion ends.

Bottom Line

Uber is one of my favorite apps and so I’m glad to see American incorporate it into their app, as well as the added bonus for Executive Platinum members. Feel free to use my Uber link where you will get your first ride free up to $15.
