I would like to know this as well. I don't see VIP anywhere in my profile.

Also, this was my first time trying it, and apparently you don't prepay for the rides, you just prepay the activation fee for all of them and then you have flat rates for 30 days.

I don't think this will work either. I have Uber credits from gift card and purchased the option to get flat rates in the past. Charged my credit card instead of using gift card credits. I assume this would be the same.

I just ordered Uber Eats for lunch with my Platinum card and it appears that the $15 credit was NOT applied. It shows in my apps (both Eats and passenger) but the receipt shows the full $16.06 for my lunch was charged to my Amex. Very disappointed although not surprised.

Confirming credit is valid for Uber EATS. After delivery, received email with $0.00 charged on credit card. Order was less than $15, remaining balance/credit appears on Uber and Uber EATS apps.

Has the food been delivered? Mine showed the same until after the delivery email.

Oops, you're right. Once the driver got here, the receipt came through in my email for just $1.06. I suppose the $16.06 charge to the Amex will just drop off in a few days.

My tummy and wallet are happy!

It's about lunch time in Bay area and I plan to order lunch now. Since this is my first use of Uber Eats and I got the free delivery code from Uber Eats once I downloaded the App. Can I use this promotion code with $15 credit?

Yes. I signed up for Uber Eats today, applied a new member $15 promo, and ordered something for ~$17 total. $15 was deducted from the promo, bringing the total to ~$2. After the food was delivered, I got an email that showed the ~$2 was covered by the $15 Amex credit and my new credit balance is ~$13.

I only see UberX VIP. Nothing over on the Premium tab. Posting from my phone using FT attachments, so my apologies that this is probably going to be a giant screenshot for desktop users.

I just did. This is my first time ordering Uber Eats and I had a $22 promo code. My lunch was about $27, and it came to $5 with $22 off. I have a pending charge of $5 on Amex and I just checked my credit balance for Uber and it dropped from $15 to $10.

So my $27 meal was free ($22 first order promo code + $5 Amex Uber credit) and I still have $10 remaining credit to use.

I got the credit on my account but don't see VIP as shown in the screenshot. I'm in NYC as well, so the service is available. :confused:

I dont see it either under UberX. There is no Uber Black VIP, since Uber Black is considered "VIP" by default.

Yes I just finished my lunch, it's working like a charm!

I am in the same boat. I am wondering if only certain cities have VIP? From a quick google search, NYC, DFW, DC, and Denver come up. But no others. I'm in Chicago right now. Won't be traveling for another two weeks to try it in SDF.

Yes, only certain markets have VIP.
