New Yorkers Take Note: $25 UberBLACK Credit with Code When Paying with Amex Card

We’ve made it two weeks into the new year, two weeks into our resolutions, and a long weekend here and there to get us through winter.

Get ready to zip around New York City in style – American Express and Uber are back with another promo.


The Scoop

Enter code “amexblack” into the “Add Promo/Gift Code” screen (under Payments) and the fine folks at Uber and Amex will pick up your tab up to $25 off one UberBLACK ride in New York City when paying with your American Express card. 

Valid from January 17-31, 2017 for UberBLACK rides starting and ending in the 5 boroughs of New York City. (Bonus! This promo is open to existing uber users!)

The Takeaway

There isn’t really much of a takeaway here – you should definitely add it even if you’re not sure you’ll be using uber in the next couple of weeks.

UberBLACK rides are typically much more expensive than, say, an UberX ride (sometimes twice as much!), but $25 off a trip certainly sweetens the deal.

A word of advice: we’ve heard some reports that uber occasionally chooses a different method of payment from the one you’ve selected (hard to tell if there is some user error involved, what with the sensitive touch screen and all, or if the app has a few bugs in it), so be sure to check that the app used your American Express card as the method of payment, otherwise, the promo won’t be applied. If you want to be extra sure, you might consider (temporarily) deleting other methods of payments (it’s annoying, we know).
