If you have an American Express card, using Uber just got a little more lucrative. As of today, you can download an update to Uber’s iOS app, which will prompt you to join the rewards program in one tap.
If you already have an American Express card on file with Uber on the app, the process is a snap. After the app update, you’ll be asked if you want to enroll your AMEX card in the rewards program. If you do, you’ll have two options – using rewards points to pay for Uber rides, or paying for Uber rides with your card, which will earn you 2x rewards points.
That’s all there is to it – if you’re not down with AMEX, nothing to see here. But, if you’re a frequent Uber rider and the owner of an AMEX card, there’s no reason why you can’t start saving a little bit of money as of right now – the program got underway yesterday.
