One of the new perks for American Express Platinum card members is the $200 credit for Uber. It is a great savings. and there are some easy, but important steps, to be taken in order to claim the $200 annually.
Recently Uber announced that they are adding tipping option for their drivers to their app. It use to be that the tip was included in the price. However, with competition with Lyft, Uber has made the decision to also offer their drivers tipping as an added benefit. With this in mind, the American Express Platinum Uber benefit can help offset this extra expense.
Download the Uber app and Register your card:
When American Express Platinum card members register their card with the Uber app, they will receive a $15 credit each month for rides in the U.S. With a larger credit of $35 in December, the total amount per year is up to $200. An additional bonus provided to card members is receiving Uber VIP status (where available). This does not require any minimum ride requirements. This will create that VIP 🌟Always5Star experience!
Here are the 🌟5StarTips steps to register your card:
🌟Download the Uber application onto your phone (you can skip this step if you are already using the application).
🌟In the left top corner of the app, use the pull down menu to select your account profile. Then choose the “Payment” option.
🌟Under payment, choose the “Add Payment Method” option :
🌟Then select the “Credit or Debit Card” option. Enter your American Express Platinum card information. Be sure to save the information before exiting.
🌟The $15 credit per month is now available. Note – To receive your credit, you must choose an American Express Card if you have multiple credit cards in your profile .
I use Uber frequently, so this has been a great benefit. To receive the full $200 credit, you must use Uber at least once a month.
5StarTip🌟: Another advantage of this American Express benefit is becoming an Uber VIP. This status changes the way the app offers drivers and vehicles. The drivers will have at least a 4.8 star rating, and the vehicles will be of a higher quality.
