How To Make Sure You Get The Amex Gold Card UBER and Dining Credits

by joeheg

When the American Express Gold card went through its refresh, it did away with its airline fee credit in favor of dining credits. I wasn’t a fan of the airline fee credit as AMEX kept chipping away at how you could use it until it became useless for many cardholders. Fortunately, American Express doesn’t make it very difficult to claim your new $20 in credits every month.

To claim your $10 monthly credit with Uber, you have to add your Gold Card to your Uber account. As soon as I did, the $10 of Uber Cash was added to my account.

You can use the money to pay for an Uber ride, order food (or even bottles of alcohol) from Uber Eats. This month, I used my money to order from Jersey Mike’s subs, which is the closest to an NJ sub sandwich I can get in Florida.

The $10 monthly dining credit works much like any other AMEX Offer but you don’t have to register for it.

Last month, I wasn’t planning on any dining expenses so I put in an order from BOXED, which qualifies for the offer.

This month, I bought lunch for my co-workers, which I ordered through Grubhub. They picked Panda Express, not me.

If I can take advantage of the $20 a month in credits, it will almost pay for the $250 annual fee. I hope that I don’t have to eat Panda Express every month to use my credits.

I thought the Gold Amex $10 dining credit only worked for specific restaurants like Ruth Chris, The Cheesecake Factory, etc., Can it be used now at any restaurant?

It is only for the specific restaurants. It is also good for Grubhub and Seamless for delivery and pickup, which greatly expands your options, and Boxed.

Together with my Palt Uber Credit and the Plat PayPal Credit combined with the Free Uber Eats Pass, I get one very nice meal a month. Thanks for reminding me about the Dining Credi, I keep forgetting about that one.
