The new American Express Platinum Card launched today, featuring a new benefit of a $200 annual Uber credit, as well as Uber VIP status. Any Platinum Card holder who has their card linked to their Uber account will automatically receive the credit. Amex breaks the $200 down into 11 months (January-November) of $15 worth of credit and one month (December) of $35 worth of credit. All of which expire at the end of the respective month.
In order to take advantage of the $200, you have to have the card linked to your account. Note that you don’t need to use the card to pay for your ride, it just needs to be linked to your account.
1. Go to your Uber app and select Payment in the options menu
2. Select the Credit or Debit Card option
3. Add in your Platinum Card information
4. Once your card information has been entered, you’ll get a notification that you’ve unlocked the benefit.
