Effective today, Amex Gold cardholders can now use $10 in Uber Cash per month in the Uber / Uber Eats apps. Just make sure that you have your Gold Card added as payment in your Uber apps.
Note that this is being rolled out such that you may not yet have the credits in your own account, but should soon. It’s automatic as long as you have your Amex Gold added to your account as a payment method.
You should see the Uber Cash automatically since the app will recognize your Amex Gold card. This works similarly to the Uber Cash feature offered on the American Express Platinum Card.
With a 60,000 point welcome bonus, 2020 is a great year to get this card if you don’t have it. Not only is the bonus worth close to $1,000, the $250 annual fee is actually more than offset by all of the credits, with an $80 first year profit.

American Express Gold Card Monthly / Annual Credits Going Forward
- $10 monthly Uber Cash ($120)
- $10 monthly dining credit which can be used at Grubhub, Seamless, The Cheesecake Factory, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, and most Shake Shack locations. ($120)
Total annual credits: $240
As you can see, not even thinking about the bonus category earnings or the welcome bonus, you’ve recovered the whole annual fee minus $10.
The Gold Card’s Strong Bonus Categories
Don’t forget that the Gold Card is a tremendous earner as well, with these bonus categories:
- 4X Membership Rewards on Dining
- 4X Membership Rewards on US Grocery Stores (up to $25,000 / year)
- 3X on flights
It’s one of the cards that I currently use the most, and this is a great year to get it.
HT to DoC for noticing it’s now live.
