American Express has extended its partnership with ride-hailing company Uber to introduce new offerings for US consumer platinum, gold and green card members.
The companies have also unveiled an Uber Cash benefit for gold card members for food deliveries at home.
Effective immediately, the platinum, gold and green cardholders will get a complimentary Eats Pass membership for up to 12 months.
Eats Pass offers unlimited $0 delivery fee and 5% discount on restaurant orders worth more than $15.
It also offers $0 delivery fee on grocery deliveries worth over $30 in select markets, typically saving about $9.99 per month.
It is a monthly subscription through Uber Eats, with card members required to enrol by 31 December 2021.
For the gold cardmembers, Uber Cash worth up to $120 annually ($10 per month) will be provided, which can be used to order food on Uber Eats or Uber rides in the US.
This adds to the existing benefits like 4x membership rewards on yearly purchases of up to $25,000 at global restaurants and US supermarkets, 3x points on airfare, and $120 annual dining credit.
Additionally, these offerings complement existing dining benefits for cardmembers, like Uber Cash of $200 per year.
Uber VP of delivery Pierre-Dimitri Gore-Coty said: “We are thrilled to expand our partnership with American Express in the United States to offer Card Members a year of free Eats Pass.
“These complimentary Eats Pass memberships will bring the best of Uber Eats to the doorsteps of card members—from delicious dine-in from local favourites to grocery delivery and more.”
American Express EVP of global premium products and benefits Rachel Stocks said: “Our cardmembers crave food experiences and we are seeing that they are continuing to seek out food delivery services to create those special experiences at home, while also beginning to explore local dining destinations again.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with Uber to provide value to our card members who are looking to get even more out of their membership.”
