Uber and AMEX Teaming Up to Offer Two Free Rides up to $65 From Several Airports

Uber and American Express are teaming up with a generous offer for the holiday season.  Each Uber rider is eligible to get two free rides, up to a whopping $65 in value, from certain airports.  So if you happen to be traveling through these airports a couple times before the end of the year you could get $130 in Uber value, free!

Though the wording on Uber’s ad is singular you can actually take advantage of this offer twice.

After entering the promo code in the Uber app, the promo offer shows up in my account as shown here.

To get in on the deal, enter the code AMEXAIRPORT in your Uber app prior to requesting a ride.  Then be sure to select an American Express Card (prepaid cards not eligible) as payment for the ride.  You’ll need to complete your trips before 12/31/16.

The main restriction for this promo is that it only applies to rides originating at select airports.  Here’s that list of airports:

This promo is also only available to American Express cardholders.  If you don’t already have an Amex card you may want to consider the Starwood Preferred Guest American Express.  As of writing, it is one of my highest rated cards and comes with a 25,000 point signup bonus.

A few other notes:

  • If your fare is over $65, the card you select as payment method will be charged the amount over $65.
  • For rides to count for this promotion they must be completed by 11:59PM on 31 Dec 2016.
  • This promotion is valid on all Uber options. uberPOOL and uberX offer the lowest fares.

If you haven’t already signed up for Uber, you can do so with this link and get $20 off your first ride!
