Title: Amex & Uber Partnership, free rides from Airport
Post by: Yaalili on November 16, 2016, 07:32:12 AM
American Express wants to take a little stress out of holiday traveling by partnering with Uber to offer US cardholders two free rides home from select major US airports (up to $65 per ride) through December 31, 2016.

To claim your $130 in savings, you simply need to enter AMEXAIRPORT in the promotions tab within the Uber app and make sure that your American Express card (prepaid cards arenít eligible) is the selected method of payment, and then $65 will be taken off the total cost of your ride after youíve made it home. To be eligible for this promotion, rides must originate at one of the following airports:

Boston (BOS)
Chicago (ORD and MDW)
Houston (IAH)
Las Vegas (LAS)
New York (EWR, LGA and JFK)
Seattle (SEA)
Washington, D.C. (DCA and IAD)

Just a heads up!


Can I combine this promotion with other Uber offers?

This promotion cannot be combined with any other offers or promotions. When you enter multiple promotion codes in the Uber app, the most recently entered code that is eligible for the ride will be applied to that ride. Once you have added a promotion code to your Uber app, you cannot delete it.

Post by: myi on November 16, 2016, 03:52:41 PM
Anyone interested in coming with me to the airport to make some cold cash? 

Go around to each person with a smartphone and put the code in and tell them I charge you $15 and take you anywhere in brooklyn! Or tip of manhattan!

One slight problem is who said they won't be charged after the ride? (they won't believe you, unless you show them the promotion applied and show them you saved them $20+....

Lol :) ;)

I'm near LGA, so if I request an Uber from LGA and call the driver and tell him to start the trip but pick me up elsewhere, would the promo still work?

Thanks. Have never done anything of that sort before.

What's the best way to do it? Enter my pickup address as the destination and give the driver the new address when he picks me up?

So sorry for those who missed it.
I am grateful to Uber, to Dan, and to those here on DDF who let me know about it.
It saved me from going to EWR and JFK in the last week to pick up people.

I've been seeing reports that this is actually a total of $65 off of two rides, not off of each. Have people here had  successful rides where the $65 came off of the first ride?
