American Express card members with Membership Rewards can now earn 2 points per $1 spent on Uber rides or pay for rides with your points.
Just go to the Uber App, enroll in the program, and add your eligible AMEX card if you haven’t already.
For every eligible ride, you can choose to earn 2 points per $1 spent or use points to pay.
Learn more about this new Uber Membership Rewards Partnership to earn points for your rides.
Earning Membership Rewards Points with Uber
To participate, you must have a Membership Rewards-eligible American Express Consumer Card or Business Card from American Express OPEN, issued in the U.S. by American Express.
Corporate Cards are not eligible for this program.
You must have the iOS operating system on your device and have uploaded a recent version of the iOS version of Uber’s mobile application on or after June 9, 2014.
You will typically receive your extra Membership Rewards points 10 to 12 weeks after the billing period in which they were earned.
Redeeming Membership Rewards Points with Uber
To use points to pay for Uber Services, you need to redeem 100 points for every $1 in Uber services, and points will be prorated for amounts between dollars (e.g., a $23.50 ride on Uber will require you to redeem 2,350 points).
This may not be the best way to Redeem Membership Rewards Points, but it’s a decent option if you need to pay for a ride and have some extra points.
