Not helpful for L.I. sadly. But I guess that means they should be taking people to Far Rockaway technically.

I'm arriving at LGA tomorrow morning with my Platinum. Usually stop at Centurion anyway before heading to get an Uber, so this is perfect.  Will give it a shot!

I'm talking more about departure boarding pass, but I guess email can be used to fake cancelled flight, since I doubt they'll scan it.

T&C's don't say anything about that.  I'll take a picture of what they give me at the lounge in the morning tomorrow and report back. Would be great if it's any kind of car!

Annoying that, per the T&C, it only works on flights originating from LGA. It doesn't make sense to give 2 per arrival and not allow it to be used on trips TO LGA. People will end up with more credits than they can use (which may promote a market for these codes).

I don't think it's two rides per visit, I think it's two rides per person...

Me neither. I probably have spent close to the most ($$,$$$) on uber in DDF. I'm just pointing out people can benefit more than twice from this.

Fair point.  I like this because my firm reimburses my Uber expenses from LGA to the office so I'll essentially be able to cash out these two rides.

Mine too. But I don't feel comfortable asking for reimbursement if I didn't pay OOP

If it's a % off promotion, I agree.  But if it's cash that I could have used for personal purposes, such as this case, I think it's fair to submit it.  But everyone has different comfort levels for everything.  Kudos to you for being careful...

Ok. Got one. I showed them my boarding pass from this morning and they gave me one.

This is what she told me..
- Only good for rides FROM LGA
- Good for ANY Uber.. I asked Uber Black and she said Yes.
- Must end within the five boroughs. AKA, would have not worked for me this morning since I went to Long Island.

And all the T&C that were posted above.

Hope that helps

She said that they will be handing them out through the end of the year. 

My meeting was canceled so I'm still in the lounge.  Trying to find something to do and will then try the SUV.

Also, note that they are requiring arriving boarding passes in order to give out a code.  They are not giving the codes to people who have departing BPs. Some have tried shmoozing but they weren't budging.  I'm guessing this may be YMMV though.

Just asked. It's one code per card member. I didn't ask about AUs just to be safe but since it's manual I'm assuming you can get a code for every person in your party them at presents a card.

Newbie here.

Just an update for you guys for the Centurion lounge-Uber deal.
Was successfully able to use my coupon from LGA to Soho for my $50 ride.  :)

Had a few email exchanges with the Uber support, because my driver forgot to turn on the app at the airport, so my ride technically started further down on the highway and the promo code wasn't applied automatically....  >:( Be mindful of that.

But she was able to tell me the following: "It can be used a maximum of two times, one per trip, as long as the amount in total doesn't exceed $250.00, and it's used before December 31st, 2015"

GAME ON DDF readers for the highest comped ride!  HAHA ;D

Seems like there are certain limitation of areas thats are included WITHIN the five boroughs and not EVERYWHERE is included.

Just got this back from them as my last right was declined.

Thanks for reaching out and sorry for any confusion. For this specific promotion, Amex has designated a certain geographical area where this promotion will automatically apply. If a trip doesn't fall within this area the discount will not apply. ...

But hence, now where have to take rides not know if it will be covered or not as they don't really say WHATS Actually included..

Don't be surprised if you take a $150 ride then all of the sudden they say NOPE!!

Is it possible that you also went out of the coverage area during your ride? I don't see how they can not credit you of it was totally in the five boroughs. Says nothing in the terms about that

Nope. Went to Far Rockaway which is in the Queens which is one of the five.. Here is the part I cutout. Seems like they have their own custom boundary. I just sent them back a nice long reply. I will post back when I hear.

Unfortunately, the destination location for this recent trip is just outside of the east-side (Bayswater Park) designated boundary.

Correct. They claim anywhere in the five boroughs is allowed and according to Uber it seemed as if it was out. After the Centurion Lounge reviewed it and spoke to Uber they realized it was allowed.

While you can technically get more than one card (one per visit), they will only give you one if they know you've been there/ or remember you, and although you can enter the code a second time on the same account, per the rep you'll get charged (so yeah, use a different account).

As far as prearranging with a driver to pick up at LGA doesn't seem possible AFAIK-tried this and you'll just get fed the first driver as there is a que at LGA and they won't let you bypass it, except by maybe one car. That being said the guy I got was happy to work with me luckily :)

Got a more than $220 ride in a nice lux SUV including two trips to LGA (one for another promo card  ;), JFK, and getting picked up elsewhere in NYC, all for free. Gotta love these promotions and Dan's thoughts on how to maximize

Would still be super expensive if the experiment fails.

I'm currently waiting to board flight back to LGA but everything is delayed tonight because of "weather". Had a good day at the tables today and need to get back to the family so I am willing to "roll the dice" on the NJ experiment. Going to speak to the driver and see what he thinks will happen. Was thinking about having him "drop off" package in the Heights in order to minimize cost risk. As long as he doesn't mark the stop over I would think it should work ok no?

Any alternative suggestions?

Title: Re: Until EOY 2015: Centurion LGA Offering 2 free Uber rides upon Arrival!
Post by: ycohen on November 12, 2015, 08:44:12 PM
Sadly was not successful. The driver said they see a "stopover" in NJ they will most likely not reimburse you since they will count that as a destination and then will combine the NJ-NYC leg as a new ride. He advised me not to try it out and so I did not proceed to NJ.
Very possible my Egyptian driver was just spooked by the fact I requested he take a "package" somewhere in NYC while I was not in the vehicle....I have forgotten for a moment what kind of unfortunate world we are in these days. I must admit, when repeating the request back in my head I would think twice as well.

Sorry for the failed attempt... Will try again in three weeks.

I'm arriving into LGA on Thurs after 8 pm so they'll be closed. Would I be able to pick up a code on my way out of town on Tues?

They're very strict...

Yes. But if each one comes with 2 rides and you get a new card each time you go in...

I'm not 100% sure you can get a new card each time.  The first time I got a card, they were keeping a log on paper.  The second time, I think she made an entry on the computer.  I'll be arriving there tomorrow morning.  I'll try again but I'm almost certain that she'll see the entry in the computer and wont give me another.  We'll see...

Question for you guys. ..  I'm on my flight into LGA and will be spending the day in NY returning out of LGA tonight. I plan on using this to get to Brooklyn.

For the return to the airport tonight do you think it will work if i request a pickup from LGA, then call the driver and tell him to start the ride and meet me in Brooklyn, then return back to LGA? The ride will be originating in LGA and end within 5 boros so i assume it'll work.

Anyone with experience?

Thanks

And even if they do do it, they'll probably give you a 4* rating. I get that all the time with uber food deliveries :).

Start by asking the driver who takes you from LGA. He'd probably be happy to do it.

Hi,
I will be arriving in LGA next week.
Never used uber before.
I would like to know if it's possible to use the code to go to the ohel wait 30 minutes and to crown heights?
If yes how do I do it?
Thanks.

I heard there was a $250 hard limit, so it wouldn't make sense to try it out in a black car/SUV where the ride could exceed that.

Acc to uberestimate.com, that would be just under $250. To my house would be closer to $450 :)

The Lounge is located pre-security, on the 3rd floor between Concourses B and C. I

I flew out  of LGA on January 1st and overheard two front desk clerks at the Centurion Lounge saying how relieved they were that the Uber craziness was done. One of them was holding a stack of presumably unused promo certificates.
