The Amex Offers program often has promotions that can save you money or earn you bonus points for purchases you’d make anyway. A fantastic targeted offer is currently available for Uber and Uber Eats purchases. I first wrote about this last week, but the offer has just been extended by a further month, through the end of January 2023.

Spend $15+ with Uber, earn 500 bonus points

With a new targeted Amex Offers deal, you can earn 500 bonus Membership Rewards points when you spend $15+ with Uber or Uber Eats:

  • Registration is required
  • This is valid for purchases through January 31, 2023
  • You can take advantage of this up to five times, for a total of 2,500 bonus points
  • This offer excludes Uber Freight, Uber One, Uber for Business, Drive with Uber, gift cards, and Lime transactions
Earn bonus Amex points with Uber

This is a pretty awesome offer. Personally I value Amex Membership Rewards points at 1.7 cents each, so therefore I value 500 points at $8.50. Getting a return of $8.50 on a $15+ purchase is a pretty awesome deal, especially since it’s in addition to whatever return on spending you’d usually get with your credit card.

Unfortunately buying Uber gift cards or credits doesn’t count toward this promotion, both per the terms, and in practice.

Why the value of this promotion is a bit tricky

When using ridesharing services, you’ll want to use the card that maximizes your return on spending. Through November 14, 2024, the no annual fee Capital One SavorOne Cash Rewards Credit Card (review) has a partnership with Uber.

With this, the card is not only offering a complimentary Uber One membership, but is also offering 10% cash back on these purchases. That 10% cash back can even be converted into Capital One miles, at the rate of one cent per point. Since I value Capital One miles at 1.7 cents each, that’s like a 17% return on that spending, which is phenomenal.

While Amex’s promotion here is great, there are limited situations where this makes sense for those of us who also have the Capital One SavorOne Cash Rewards Credit Card:

  • If I were spending over $15 and under $50 in one transaction, I’d use this offer, since I’d earn a minimum of 500 points per purchase that way
  • If I were spending over $50 in one transaction, I’d still use the SavorOne Card, since I’d earn over 500 points that way

Bottom line

The Amex Offers program has a new targeted promotion that can earn you bonus points with Uber or Uber Eats. With this offer, you can receive 500 bonus points on $15+ purchases, up to five times. If you’re eligible for this offer, it could definitely be worth taking advantage of.

Do you plan on taking advantage of this Amex Offers deal for Uber or Uber Eats?

    Sadly, the key word here is "targeted" ... and I have not, to date, been targeted.

    Don't tell Klint - he'll try to order UberEats with a $1.80 tip again. We know how it ended last time.

    1. Santos Guest

      But he's not a bad tipper! It's the *compensation model* that's broken. Lol

    2. Ariote Guest

      That's the type of comments when you see the *real* Klint despite all the posturing

    If you add the offer you an Amex Gold Card (4x on UberEats), you'd do better with this offer than SavorOne for orders between $15-$83.33. At $50, you end up with 200 more points using a Gold card with the offer.

    Got fed up with Uber and Lyft in Miami. Signed up for Alto with their Black Friday discount. Rides are a bit more expensive, but experience is unmatched. In “surge pricing” situations, they’re consistently less than Uber

      Yup been riding alto exclusively in DFW for sometime now, much better service.

    2. henare Diamond

      Alto only provides service in six cities. They'll have to develop a much larger footprint ...

  5. Eskimo Guest

    No offer but is also as useless offer as bunch of wine deliveries.

  6. iamhere Guest

    500 bonus points - not inspiring.

  7. D3kingg Guest

    Well Uber prices have increased and you often find that no drivers are available in your area. The rider pays more than double of what the Uber driver is paid. The Uber driver only receives 40% of the fare. Frustrating for both parties. Uber claims there are city fees , safety fees , passenger fees , etc.

    1. Never In Doubt Guest

      Do you feel better after all that whining?

    2. henare Diamond

      So tell us about the place where you get rides where the prices *haven't* increased.

      I'll wait ...
