American Express and Uber announced today they’re expanding their partnership — and adding more value to three Membership Rewards cards. Plus, American Express Gold Card members will receive Uber Cash benefits!

Complimentary Uber Eats Pass Subscription

Effective immediately, three Amex cards receive complimentary 12-month subscriptions to Eats Pass — Uber Eats’ subscription service:

Eats Pass is a monthly subscription through Uber Eats offering unlimited $0 delivery fees and 5% off restaurant orders over $15. Plus, subscribers enjoy a $0 delivery fee on grocery deliveries over $30 in select markets. Amex and Uber value the savings at $119 annually.

The Eats Pass perk must be manually activated no later than December 31, 2021. So you have a while.

If you’re like me and hold at least two of the above cards, you should be able to stack the Eats Pass subscriptions for about two years.

For example, I have both the Platinum Card from American Express and American Express Gold Card. I’ll activate the Eats Pass benefit using my Platinum Card from American Express membership in the next couple of days, right when I use this month’s $15 Uber Cash perk. In 12 months, I’ll cancel the Uber Eats subscription — and then reactivate it with my American Express Gold Card.

Remember to start your Uber Eats orders through DO$H and get cashback on eligible orders.

Monthly Uber Cash Deposits for the Amex Gold Card!

The American Express Gold Card became even more valuable.

The card’s $100 annual airline incidental credit is being removed in 2022. But Amex already has a replacement for it!

Starting “early next year” (though no exact date has been announced), American Express Gold Card members will receive monthly $10 Uber Cash deposits — which can be used for Uber rides or Uber Eats purchases. That gives Amex Gold cardholders up to $120 in annual Uber Cash benefits to enjoy.

I hope the benefit starts sooner than later in 2021 so we can maximize its value.

Final Approach

I use my Platinum Card from American Express‘s Uber Cash deposits each month for Uber Eats. So I’m happy to receive even more value from my card membership. Plus, getting $25 Uber Cash each month — from my Gold and Platinum cards — plus the Eats Pass is something I’ll definitely use.

Given that Uber says it may have to hike prices soon — at least in California, depending on how a proposition vote turns out next week. If that’s indeed the case, these perks will help ease the sticker shock.
