In October, we learned that Amex would be adding a $10 monthly Uber Eats credit to the American Express® Gold Card / Rose Gold Card (How to Apply). Terms apply.

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.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

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 statement credit which can be used at Grubhub, Seamless, The Cheesecake Factory, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, and most Shake Shack locations. ($120). Enrollment required.

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; 1X thereafter)
  • 3X on flights booked directly with the airline or via Amex Travel.

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.

Rates and Fees for the American Express Gold Card

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
