A new month is here — which means select credits renew for cardholders of the Platinum Card from American Express (<– LINK) and American Express Gold Card (<– LINK)!

Plus, we have some UberEats promo codes which may save you even more money!

Save on UberEats or Uber!

Platinum Card from American Express carholders receive $200 each year in Uber credit ($15 monthly except December, when it’s $35) The perk is added as Uber Cash — and can also be used for UberEats!

I totally pulled a René and ordered ice cream Monday night, just before September’s credit expired.

So, so good!

For what it’s worth, I highly recommend Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams if you find yourself in or near Calabasas, California. (I know the “goat cheese” part sounds strange and California-y — and it is — but the ice cream was delicious!)

If you use the credit for Uber, don’t forget a couple of our rideshare safety tips.

Try These UberEats Promo Codes!

UberEats offered me the promo code FALLTREAT19 for 20% off each of my next five orders through October 3. Worked like a charm for my ice cream.

So give it a shot with your next order, too!

FWIW, DoC says you may also want to try WHATSNEW0DF for free delivery and WHATSNEW50 for 50% off up to a $10 maximum. These are “YMMV” (or “Your Mileage May Vary”) so they may or may not work for you.

But it can’t hurt to try.

  1. I love AMEX Platinum but I wish the Canadian version had the same awesome perks like the American version! Hopefully, one day. Would love the Uber credit 🙂

    Well yes, but mostly Uber eats, at least in my area, seems to feature various fast food restaurants and the worst of Chinese and Thai. Would be more helpful if you could figure out what to do with the $200 for purchases on airlines. I am ready to ditch Amex platinum as soon as i find another way to get Priority Pass

    Rene wrote a post about some ideas where to spend the airline incidental credit:

    My Chase Sapphire Reserve has Priority Pass and is cheaper than the Amex Platinum card. It also includes the restaurant benefit Amex nixed.

    Here are some other cards, too: https://renespoints.boardingarea.com/2019/09/15/do-you-have-one-of-these-cards-offering-free-access-to-airport-lounge/

    Yes, Chris, this may work for other AMEX cards but for Platinum the use seems limited. I only used the $200 when I had to carry surplus baggage for a 6 month stay in Europe. Maybe I could change the airline to one where I am more likely to fly economy but even then you have to fly a lot to consume/drink $200 worth, and that is about all the Platinum card covers.
