Uber Amex Sync: $10 for Free!

This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here. Additionally, some of the offers on this page may no longer be available through Deals We Like.

Uber just joined the Amex Sync party and between now and December 31, 2014, you can get a $10 statement credit after spending $10 or more on an Uber. So if you take a $10 Uber, your ride is free! Fortunately, this one is available via Twitter so everyone is eligible and you can sync as many American Express credit cards that you have.


To enroll in this offer:

  • Sync your American Express credit card to Twitter (you can do that here). If you are not sure which card is currently synced with your account, you can unsync and then re-sync. Tweet #AmexUber

I did not see this promotion in my AmericanExpress.com account, so currently the only way to enroll is via Twitter. It could pop up at a future time though. Enrollment is probably limited, so I suggest syncing your card ASAP. This will be a popular one!

And remember, this only works when you are using a service that allows you to pay with a credit card through Uber. So, UberT in New York City, for example, will not trigger the statement credit.

Purchasing gift cards: For those wondering, purchasing a $25 Uber gift card will trigger the statement credit! You can purchase gift cards here.

Combining with the Uber new user promotion: Also, this can sorta be combined with the Uber new user promotion. When signing up for an Uber account through a referral link you will get 1 free ride up to $30. If you use your free credits on a ride less then $30, you will not receive the remaining amount back to use at a future time. But, if you use your free credits on a ride that is more then $30, the excess amount will hit your credit card on file. If the balance is more then $10 or more and you have an Amex card synced that is registered for this promotion, it will trigger the statement credit. The $30 referral credit is only valid for those who sign up in the US and the credit will only work for rides in the US as well. You can learn more about this promotion here.

Thanks to reader Joey for letting me know about this promotion! This is one I will definitely be taking advantage of… and multiple times!

    • @Karthikeyan – You “should” be able to purchase a gift card by following these instructions:
      1. First, add your American Express credit card to your Uber account. You can do that here: riders.uber.com/payment/
      2. Purchase a $25 Uber gift card with the uploaded American Express credit card. You can do that here: riders.uber.com/gifts

      With that being said, for whatever reason,
      Buy a $25 Uber gift card with each Amex card. Gift cards are available here: riders.uber.com/gifts.

      With that being said, for some reason some accounts do not show the purchase gift card option in their account. If you email Uber they should be able to add it for you, BUT they might not respond in time.
