American Express Offering Some Platinum Cardholders $15 Statement Credit Instead Of Uber Credit

At the moment a lot of readers are in isolation, one of the benefits of the American Express Platinum card is a $15 monthly Uber credit. Obviously that is not usable currently but The Miles Man (via MtM) was able to chat with Americaan Express and get a $15 statement credit. It’s also worth remembering that this credit works on Uber Eats and has been known to work when purchasing Uber Cash as well.

Come on, with no flights for at least half the year, we deserve that for 550 a year

I just contacted Amex and my rep basically said not a chance and to contact Uber. Also, how do you get Uber cash with Amex credits? I do not have an option go pay with Amex credits when trying to buy Uber cash.

I think this was an old loophole that is now closed.

Wonder if there’s any shot of getting anything for the worthless airline credits, since travel is pretty much not happening right now outside of anything critical.

Can we call an uber for a $15 ride and not take it so a driver gets some money? And I don’t remember can we tip with the credit? Then I’d take a $1 ride and tip the rest.

Lol a $1 ride? Lol.

Does the $5 cancellation fee go to the driver?
And credits can be used for tip, usually at the end of the month I go and divide the remainder of my credits to the rides I I took in the last week

Looks like they get 3.50 (reddit search). I was thinking call an uber to take me to a spot 3 blocks away but then text the driver that i’m not getting in the car, just drive there bill me for the ride and then i’ll tip them the rest of my credit. I think the minimum charge is about $5

Worked for me. Uber eats doesn’t have as much as it’s competitors in my area. Usually am a heavy Uber user.

I used up my March uber eats credit via pickup the other day against better judgement. Really exposed the addiction/mindset of some of us deal seekers: “lose $20 in credit or risk contracting viral contagion? Clearly the latter..”

Didn’t work for me. The Chat person “Perry” was very rude. He acted like it was his money he’d have to give up. If you chat and see his name disconnect and try again.

I contacted via chat and he said I could use for Uber X or Uber Eats. I told him I have no Uber Eats in my area and I am self quarantined (both true). He said he’d escalate and I’d know in two days.

i already used my monthly credit on Ubereats. maybe next month…

Chatted with two different agents (last night and today), and none could do anything. In the second attempt I asked for a supervisor, he issued $15 credit for this month and said they’re working for a solution for next months. I have two platinum cards and told them I’m considering cancellation if this outbreak continues for a long time and I cannot use the uber credit on top of airline credits
