Melanie Backs from American Express tells me,

One of the things we see in LGA is that people actually will visit the lounge upon arrival since it’s outside security. Whether someone’s coming in for the day on a business trip or headed home after a trip, we see Card Members coming to the lounge to gather themselves and grab a bite.

Through the end of the year American Express Platinum and Centurion cardmembers who visit the American Express Centurion lounge at New York LaGuardia on arrival can receive a promotion code good for 2 complimentary Uber rides originating from LaGuardia to anywhere in the five boroughs of New York.

American Express has a partnership with Uber and this is a great way to both provide value to cardmembers (free rides from the airport!) and connect Uber with high value cardmembers and get them used to using the service for airport transfers.

Here are the offer terms:

This offer expires at 11:59PM EST on December 31, 2015. Must apply the promotional
code to your Uber account prior to taking your ride. Offer only applicable to fares from
LaGuardia Airport to the five boroughs of New York City. Eligible fare includes taxes,
fees, tolls, and surge pricing. Promotional code will be provided upon entry into the
Centurion Lounge at LaGuardia Airport. Lounge entry requires presentation of a valid
Centurion Card or Platinum Card, a government-issued ID, and a boarding pass for the
arriving flight.

Only one promotional code per user. Each promotional code may be used two times for
rides within the parameters defined above. Not valid with any other Uber-issued offers.
Card Members that receive a complimentary ride from LaGuardia Airport through this
promotion do not receive Membership Rewards points or other applicable reward units
or points on the eligible fare.

  1. Gary, I’m headed to LGA tomorrow and ending up in Manhattan. Can Uber make pick ups outside of arrivals at LGA ? Thanks

  2. @RoloT yes — though apparently it can take a few minutes longer for them to show up than it used to, since the cars have to wait farther afield. So great to be in the Centurion lounge.. grab a code.. and request it while you’re still in the lounge.

  3. I’ll have 3 more stops at the LGS Centurion Lounge scheduled in 2015 (1 departing; 2 arriving). Does that mean that I’ll get 6 LGA-Manhattan Uber rides that can be used into 2016? If so, along with other benefits, I think that my Amex Platinum card’s annual fee just paid for itself. It sounds though that the promotional codes apply only from LGA to the boroughs, not the other way around. Still, I’ll take it and will earn tremendous value, especially if the promotional codes can be redeemed after the end of the year. Is that your reading, Gary?
