Update: the $10 monthly Uber credit (in the form of Uber Cash) for the American Express® Gold Card is now live and can be opted into.
The American Express® Gold Card has a 60,000 point offer after $4,000 spend on eligible purchases within the first 6 months. That’s the biggest I’ve ever seen for the card. And it’s getting a new Uber credit, too.
The card is my go-to for 4 membership Rewards points per dollar on restaurants and on the first $25,000 spent each calendar year at U.S. supermarkets. It is one of the best points-earning cards, my primary American Express card for earning points, and Membership Rewards is my favorite points program. It also earns 3 Membership Rewards points per dollar on flights booked directly with airlines or on amextravel.com.
The American Express® Gold Card will get a new Uber credit in 2021 of up to $120 per year – $10 per month – in the form of Uber Cash that can be used for rides or Uber Eats.
Starting today, it (along with the Platinum and Green cards) is also getting complimentary Uber Eats Pass, which normally costs $119 per year and offers benefits such as discounts on Uber Eats orders and waived delivery fees. This is a 12 month benefit when you subscribe with your Gold card, with enrollment by December 31, 2021.
The card is keeping its up to $120 a year in dining credit ($10 monthly when you pay with the card at participating dining partners).
This is a $250 annual fee card (see rates and fees). I value Membership Rewards points at 1.8 cents apiece, largely because of their wide array of transfer partners many of which offer exceptional value:
- Star Alliance: Aeroplan, ANA, Singapore, Avianca
- oneworld: AsiaMiles, British Airways, Iberia, Qantas
- SkyTeam: Aeromexico, Alitalia, Air France KLM, Delta
- Non-alliance: Etihad, Emirates, Hawaiian, JetBlue, Aer Lingus, Virgin Atlantic
- Hotels: Choice, Hilton, Marriott
This is a great mileage-earning card, a great card for road warriors when we’re back in the sky, and the best public offer for the card there’s ever been. If you’ve ever thought of getting the American Express® Gold Card this is the offer to jump on. And keeping it makes more sense than ever with the credits they’re delivering.
