There’s more to Uber than just rides, and starting Oct. 26, 2020, eligible American Express cardholders will get a 12-month test-drive of another Uber offering.

Those who carry these cards will have access to a complimentary Eats Pass membership from Uber:

The complimentary subscription is a monthly subscription that normally costs $119 a year ($9.99 per month) and offers deals on restaurant takeout and grocery delivery, including:

  • $0 delivery fee at eligible restaurants.

  • 5% off restaurant orders over $15 at eligible restaurants.

  • $0 delivery fee on grocery deliveries over $30 (select markets).

  • Taxes and service fees may apply and don't count toward order minimums.

You must enroll by Dec. 31, 2021, and you’ll get up to 12 months of Eats Pass for no charge. Uber Eats Pass will then auto-bill starting 12 months from initial enrollment in this offer, at the then-current monthly rate. Terms apply. Learn more.

American Express® Gold Card also getting Uber Cash perk ...

In addition, starting in February 2021, those who hold the American Express® Gold Card will get up to $120 per year in Uber Cash, which can be used toward Uber rides or U.S. Uber Eats orders. Terms apply.

Nerd tip: The Platinum Card® from American Express also will continue to offer monthly Uber credits, up to $200 per calendar year. Terms apply.

To use the benefit, add your American Express® Gold Card as a payment method in the Uber app. Each month, $10 in Uber Cash will automatically appear in your account. Unused credit does not roll over to the next month.

The American Express® Gold Card will continue to earn 4 Membership Rewards points per $1 spent on dining, and those earnings can stack with the $10 monthly Uber Cash. Terms apply. If you spend $40 on dinner for your family using Uber Eats, you'll get a $10 credit back and then you'll earn 4x points on the $30 you actually spend.

The American Express® Gold Card will retain its other $120 dining credit perk, which is also usable in $10-per-month increments when you pay with your card at select restaurants like Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Shake Shack, Grubhub and more.

Terms apply.

... But is ending its airline fee credit in 2021

While the American Express® Gold Card is gaining up to $120 in annual Uber credits, it will lose its annual $100 airline fee statement credit. Currently, that credit can be applied toward incidental airline fees, including for checked bags and seat selection, with one selected qualifying airline (which you can change once a year). Terms apply.

UPDATE: As of Feb. 4, 2021, the airline fee credit is no longer available to new cardholders. It will end for all other cardholders at the end of 2021.
