If Uber flags it or the driver won't cooperate.
Those are both very unlikely.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

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?

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?

This place is being overrun with scammers. Sad.

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 aren’t eligible) is the selected method of payment, and then $65 will be taken off the total cost of your ride after you’ve 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)

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.

It's over to add to your account. If it's already in your account, it can be used till the end of the year.

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?

I made the trip, then complained about the code not working, and received a refund.
