Creative ways to use Amex Uber credit

Hi all -

I live in an area without Uber service so I only use Uber, and hence my Amex monthly credit when I travel to larger cities a few times a year. I probably leave 6-7 months of credit (90-105$) wasted each year for this reason.

Does anyone know of a way to better use this credit? I've already checked with Uber and the credits/Uber cash is non transferrable, so gifting to another rider is out.

I believe it might work with Uber Eats but of course I don't have that in my area either.

Any way I can buy gift cards on Uber using Amex credits? Anyone out there have any ideas so I can better maximize this?

This is incorrect in practice. If there's someone you trust, you can add your card to their Uber account and they'll get the credit. They don't have to pay for any rides with your card.
