Terms of the Uber benefit (as of 2017-12-15):
Only Basic Card Members on a Platinum Card account are eligible for Uber VIP and monthly ride Credits. To receive this benefit, you must have downloaded the Uber App version 3.219 or later for iOS or version 3.126 or later for Android and your eligible Platinum Card must be a method of payment in your Uber account. If you are assigned a new Card number, you must update your method of payment in your Uber account. Cards added to your Uber account through a third party such as Apple Pay or PayPal will not be eligible. A Platinum Card account may receive this benefit on one Uber account. If the same Card is added to multiple Uber accounts, only the first Uber account to which the Card is added will receive the benefit. Uber VIP is available in select cities and is governed by Uber's terms and conditions. Credit may be applied to all Uber car types and UberEATS orders. To redeem monthly ride Credits, you must select to use the Credit in your Uber app prior to completing the Uber ride or placing the UberEATS order. The discount will not apply to previous Uber transactions and cannot be used when paying with an UberFAMILY profile. New and existing Uber users are eligible. Uber will apply discount at the point of sale. There is no limit to the number of transactions you may apply the Credit to each month, up to a total of $15 in Credits per month. Each year in December, you may apply up to $35 in Credit. The discounted cost of a ride will be displayed on your post-ride email receipt. If you are eligible to receive additional Membership Rewards points on your ride transaction, points will be awarded on the balance after Credits are applied. Credit may only be applied within the United States. Monthly ride Credit expires at 11:59 PM Hawaii Standard Time on the last day of each month. Unused Credit will not carry over to the following month. Credit will be applied for the month in which the transaction is completed. If transaction is eligible for another promotion that you have added to your Uber account, the promotion will be applied before the Credit. Certain Uber-branded credits may be applied to your balance prior to this Credit. For purposes of fulfilling upon this benefit, American Express will share with Uber certain information about your card, including the card type, and updated Card information from time to time. If you do not wish to participate in this program, please call the number on the back of your Card.
It appears that multiple $15 credits can be added to a single uber account by two different AMEX platinum cards and each card will trigger an increase of $15 to the credit balance.

Your uber app must be set to request rides in 'personal' profile mode - other options (family, business) will not offer the AMEX credit

Reading this it seems like we do only have 2 days to use our March credit.

Credit may be applied to all Uber car types and cannot be applied to other Uber services. Credit may only be applied to rides within the United States. Monthly ride Credit expires at 11:59 PM local time on the last day of each month. Unused Credit will not carry over to the following month. Credit will be applied for the month in which the ride is completed

I think there are two possibilities:

  • There will be no March 2017 credit
  • There will be a March 2017 credit valid for 48 hours only

...which do you prefer?

I think a third option is possible. That the credit added on March 30, 2017 expires on the last day in April.

In addition to, or instead of, an April 1 credit?

There's only upside here. Best case, you get an extra $15 for March in addition to the $15 that we all expect to have for April. Worst case you spend the $15 allotted for April, but still no loss.

Consumer class action lawyers would prefer option 1.

I talked to a customer service rep and she said that we have two days to use March's Uber credit.

In my city Uber offers flat-fee packages that last 30 days, so I'll buy $15 worth (5 rides) and report back if it gets reimbursed.

I guess if the restaurant is close enough you can just call an uber to and from to get food if you need to burn the credits at the end of the month...
