The American Express® Gold Card has officially kicked its new Uber benefit into gear — and it's bringing back a beloved card design option.

As of Feb. 4, 2021, cardholders will get $10 a month in Uber Cash, which can be used toward Uber rides or U.S. Uber Eats orders. That’s a benefit worth up to $120 a year. Terms apply.

This new feature was announced last year, along with news that the card was losing its annual $100 incidental airline fee credit. Terms apply. But AmEx has now released details about how to claim the Uber perk:

  • Add your American Express® Gold Card number as a payment method in your Uber or Uber Eats account.

  • $10 in Uber Cash will then appear in your account automatically each month.

  • The monthly Uber Cash allotment from the card doesn't roll over and is "use it or lose it" each month.

  • Terms apply (see rates and fees).

Cardholders can also get up to 12 months of complimentary Uber Eats Pass membership when they enroll by Dec. 31, 2021. (Uber Eats Pass will start auto-billing at the ongoing monthly rate starting 12 months from enrollment. Terms apply. Learn more.)

The American Express® Gold Card is NerdWallet's best bonus rewards travel card of 2021. It earns:

  • 4 Membership Rewards points per $1 spent at restaurants worldwide.

  • 4 points per $1 spent at U.S. supermarkets on up to $25,000 in purchases per year.

  • 3 points per $1 spent for flights booked directly with airlines or on amextravel.com.

  • 1 point per $1 spent on other eligible purchases.

Terms apply.

Rose Gold version makes a permanent return

Also as of this month, the American Express® Gold Card's "Rose Gold" design is coming back as a color option, and this time it's here to stay.

Previously, the rose-gold hue was limited-edition and available by referral.

New cardholders will be able to choose between the traditional gold or the rose gold versions. Existing cardholders, too, can request a switch to the rose gold version if they like. Terms apply.
