Free Uber Rides Courtesy Of Amex Centurion Lounge LGA

In the interest of full disclosure, One Mile At A Time earns a referral bonus for anyone that’s approved through some of the below links. These are the best publicly available offers that we have found for each card. Opinions expressed here are the author's alone, not those of the bank, credit card issuer, airlines or hotel chain, and have not been reviewed, approved or otherwise endorsed by any of these entities.

The US American Express Centurion Lounges — located in Dallas, Las Vegas, MiamiNew York, and San Francisco — are already a huge step up from other domestic US lounges. They feature nice decor, “real” hot food, and complimentary beer, wine, and cocktails.


With the holidays right around the corner, American Express & Uber have teamed up for an especially awesome promotion. American Express has been noticing that guests are using the Centurion Lounges upon arrival (in particular the one in New York, given that it’s before security), so they’re going to help you get into the city this holiday season.

For the rest of the year, the Amex Centurion Lounge LGA is offering two free Uber rides to Platinum and Centurion card members who visit upon arrival. Here’s how it works:

  • You have to be a Platinum or Centurion card member to be eligible (this includes both The Platinum Card® from American Express and The Business Platinum® Card from American Express); people who otherwise buy access to the lounge aren’t eligible
  • Upon presenting your credentials you’ll be given a promotion code, which is good for two complimentary Uber rides originating at LGA to anywhere in the five boroughs
  • You have to apply the promotion code prior to taking your eligible ride
  • The promotion code will cover taxes, fees, tolls, and surge pricing
  • The offer expires on December 31, 2015


This is a very nice extension of the partnership between American Express and Uber, whereby you can earn bonus Membership Rewards points for Uber trips. For example, I use the Amex EveryDay℠ Preferred Credit Card for my Uber rides, as it earns me an extra Membership Rewards point per dollar spent, and also helps me hit my goal of 30 transactions per billing cycle on the card (which earns me a 50% points bonus).


If you haven’t yet signed up for Uber, you can sign-up now and get a discount on your first ride.

Bottom line

This is an extremely generous promotion, especially since LaGuardia completely lacks when it comes to public transportation (and just about everything, for that matter). Uber rides into Manhattan can cost over $50, and you can get two of those rides for free between now and the end of the year.


Who plans on taking advantage of this Centurion Lounge Uber promotion?

  1. That’s an awesome promotion. I live in downtown Brooklyn and I hate flying out of or into LGA because the only way to get there without too much hassle is by car (local car services such as Legends or Arecibo are definitely the cheapest options going to LGA). Even if I were flying DL, it would be worth the short jaunt over to the Centurion Lounge to get a free Uber home.

  2. Is this really limited only to trips from LGA? Would’ve been much more convenient if it worked both ways – to and from.

  3. hey!

    I have an arriving flight into LGA, but my departing flight is from JFK. Can I somehow take advantage of this promo?

  4. Thought 1: Damn, flying in to JFK 🙁

    Check email: Sweet, actually flying into LGA 🙂

    Check landing time: 9pm, lounge closes at 8pm 🙁

  5. hi ben-although I agree this is a great deal, there is an excellent but little known public transportation option to laguardia. Take the subway to roosevelt ave in queens (many lines go there) and then take the Q70 ltd bus to laguardia. No stops! very quick and inexpensive (swipe of a metro card) to get there. Same on the return.
    Not ideal with lots of luggage, but otherwise works great.

  6. I have an arriving flight into LGA, but my departing flight is from JFK. Can I somehow take advantage of this promo?

  7. I know this is pretty niche, but I’ll be arriving in LGA just after Christmas, so I’ll ask anyway: does an Australian Platinum Velocity card get me in to that lounge?
