I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same). Terms apply to the offers and benefits listed on this page.


At the start of April I wrote about an offer to earn 465 American AAdvantage miles – and elite status miles – per Uber trip up to 4 times via SimplyMiles. That’s 1,860 elite status miles for taking Uber and charging the trip to a Mastercard registered on the SimplyMiles site by May 31, 2022.

I now see that I have two other Uber offers as well, which I’ve now activated.

465 miles per UberEats order, up to 3 times by May 31. Each order has to be at least $25.

Get 465 AA Miles on your next Uber Eats order of $25 or more purchased through the Uber Eats app. Expires 5/31/2022. Offer excludes taxes and fees. Not valid with other offers. Offer may be redeemed up to three (3) times per person. Subject to change or cancellation.

460 miles per month of Uber One membership by May 31, 2022, up two months (two times). I have Uber’s Eats Pass for a year via American Express and cancelled it. At $9.99 per month I’d actually probably come out ahead, at least most months, but unless it’s an absolute no-brainer I eschew auto-charges. However another 920 status and redeemable miles should tip the balance for two months.

When signing up for Uber One with an eligible Mastercard, you will receive 460 miles each month you are charged for the Uber One membership and can redeem this offer up to (2) times. Benefits: Unlimited free delivery: Enjoy $0 Delivery Fee on eligible restaurant over $15 and eligible grocery orders over $30* Members-only: Save 10% on your first 3 eligible rides of each month** Get 5% off your eligible restaurant orders over $15*** Perks: Unlock special perks from restaurants near you

All told, between the 3 offers, that’s 4,620 elite status and redeemable miles with Uber, outside of Uber One these are things I’m doing anyway and just require me to use a registered Mastercard (which for me means either the Citi Premier® Card for 3 points per dollar earning for the spend. 4,620 Loyalty Points represent over 15% of the way to elite status.

You also earn Marriott points on premium Uber rides and with Uber Eats, and that’s not credit card-linked so you can earn with Marriott and American at the same time under this offer.

  1. Must be targeted offers? Or here today, gone tomorrow? I will be using Uber in May, and my Uber payment is the AAdvantage Silver. I just joined simplymiles to sign up for this offer and it is not available. Weird.

  2. When I add up these offers it seems like nine offers of about 460. Four for the first one, three for the second, two for the third. Where is the tenth that I’m missing? Thanks.

  3. Gary, do you know how SimplyMiles is governed? Does it belong to AA?

    I have a couple of offers they did not pay out on. I contacted them trough the form, provided receipts as they requested and since then have been waiting for their “Technical Team” to research the issue for well over 2 months. I periodically ping their customer service and they keep sending me boilerplate responses that the issue is still being researched. I asked several times how to escalate and where to send a complaint to but they conveniently ignore this part of my messages.

    I presume my next step should be complaining directly to AA? Not that I expect much of it but gotta do something. What do you think?

  4. These Uber offers have been frustratingly hit or miss for me after activating the offers on 4/12. Chronologically:

    4/12 Uber Eats: nothing
    4/13 Uber Eats: nothing
    4/16 Uber: Tracked and miles received
    4/23 Uber: nothing
    4/26 Uber: Tracked and miles pending
    4/26 Uber: Tracked and miles pending

    I’m girding my loins for the impending fight with SimplyMiles.
