American Express (AMEX) has teamed up Uber to provide their platinum card members with an exclusive in-app Uber experience.

The new ‘Uber Rides with Platinum’ benefit provides AMEX platinum members with up to $200 in annual Uber credits for rides within the US, along with Uber VIP status where available. Card members will receive $15 in Uber credit per month, with an additional $20 bonus in December, when their AMEX platinum card is added as a payment method in the Uber app. The benefit will become available to card members started 30 March 2017.

“This premium, first-of-its-kind benefit gives platinum card members another reason to use Uber – a reliable, safe way to travel in 450 plus cities around the world," said Emil Michael, CBO at Uber. "We’re excited to continue to expand our longstanding partnership with American Express to provide even more card members with valuable rewards and VIP treatment when they ride with Uber.”
