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

My tummy and wallet are happy!
Awesome news!

Here's what the VIP option looks like in ATL. Cost is exactly the same as UberX.

I was also able to add two different Platinum cards for $30 total credit.

First Uber eats order with my amex platinum business as my only Uber eats credit card. Charge was $17, no credit posted or showing yet and food was delivered 10 minutes ago.

If that's my only billing card I shouldn't have to do anything special right? Do I hav to to select the credit when paying?

Are you talking about platinum business? Uber credit is only for personal card, I believe, no fee increase for business card.

Anyone know the answer to this yet?

Yes. The $15 credit shows up in the Uber app, and is automatically applied if you select an eligible Amex card as the payment method. Actually, I do think there was an option to not apply it (I'll look more carefully next time), so if for example your first Uber of the month is a reimbursable one, you could choose to save the credit for a later personal trip.

Since it acts like an Uber coupon, only the net amount posts to Amex, so you'll never see the full charge or the credit on your Amex statement. So, I will know in less than 24 hours if the $15 appears again for April (I suspect it will).

Used the Uber credit for Uber eats, no charge to be posted to credit card. Can be delivered to third party which is good if you don't have service in your area

5 dollar deliver fee means you're limited to a 9 to 10 dollar item though

My credit posted in the app as expected, but my spouse's didn't -- despite being an entirely separate AmEx Platinum personal cardholder, not an AU on my account.

We've removed and re-added the card to no avail. Has anyone else had this happen? I'm hoping to get it sorted out soon so we can use both credits today before they expire!

I see the $15 credit in Uber app. If I use it today, will I get another starting Apr 1? Is that how this is going to work?
