I actually had the card for numerous years so I don't remember if I took the first year.
OK. Well 2x is not dead. Just dead in your specific situation, which if replicated by someone else could have been a triple dip.

What I understand Amex VIP at Uber has nothing to do with Uber rewards.

uber has rewards program now so i was wanted to confirm if VIP got transitioned into gold level with the new program?

Nope. It has nothing to do with the rewards program. Uber VIP gets you 5 star drivers..

i understand this. but uber just recently did away with vip and instituted a rewards program with levels ranging from blue - diamond. i have amex plat and had vip and now have gold. only i barley take uber, so i was curious if everyone who had previously had vip now has gold through the amex plat perk.

ok my bad, like i said i dont usually take uber and i do see now that VIP still exists. but my original question still remains, does amex plat perk for uber automatically gives you gold status?

i know this was discussed, but was there a definitive answer as to whether or not the AA gift card is still working for the airline credit?

I did it 12/30/18 and got credit.  Have there been reports to the contrary since then?

Yes, I did the last one in mid January and was OK, but later there were some reports that it did not work anymore, looking for very recent data if anyone tried.
