Well, American Express certainly kicked off February in rather exciting style, didn’t they?

They announced some great Amex Offers for over a dozen co-branded cards. And the American Express Gold Card‘s new, monthly Uber Cash benefit debuted shortly before midnight Sunday.

So if you have an Amex Gold and/or Platinum card, here’s a quick reminder of your refreshed-monthly perks.

Folks who hold the Platinum Card from American Express receive these monthly benefits:

  • Up to $30 in PayPal statement credit. This perk is valid through June. The credit is if-used and any remaining credit for this benefit expires at the end of each month.
  • $15 in Uber Cash deposited directly into their Uber/Uber Eats accounts. The Uber Cash is if-used only and expires at the end of each month. So even if you’re not traveling anywhere, consider using it for Uber Eats. (The benefit is boosted to $35 for December, making it worth a nice, round $200 for the year.)

The American Express Gold Card — which is one of the favorites in my wallet — gives members these benefits:

  • If-used $10 statement credit valid at several restaurants and delivery services. (A one-time enrollment is required.)
    • Grubhub
    • Seamless
    • The Cheesecake Factory
    • Ruth’s Chris Steak House
    • Boxed
    • Participating Shake Shack locations
  • $10 in Uber Cash deposited directly into their Uber/Uber Eats accounts. The Uber Cash is if-used only and expires at the end of each month.

Complimentary Uber Eats Pass Subscription

Three Amex cards receive complimentary 12-month memberships 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.

Final Approach

I hold both the Platinum Card from American Express and American Express Gold Card. Both cards come with great benefits. Amex has been good at implementing perks people can actually use during the pandemic. Here’s hoping they continue that trend!

  1. I “like” my Amex Gold card for a few things but offers like this are weak. I live in the midwest in a rural area. The nearest Ruth’s Chris is 70 miles away, the nearest Cheesecake Factory is 78 miles. No uber, or food delivery services in this area. I understand these are great for some folks but it doesn’t do much for me. I didn’t even know what Boxed was until I googled it but it won’t even let me check out what it is without logging in to their site so pass. Sorry I hate to be negative as I found this blog post informative. Thanks.
