If you are an Executive Platinum member with American Airlines, and requalified for 2016 status, now would be a good time to check your email inbox. As promised in February when their partnership was introduced, American and Uber are offering a one-time $25 credit for your next Uber ride. Unlike the typical Uber discount codes, these will work if you have an existing Uber account!
If you haven’t had the opportunity to try Uber, be sure to download their app and request your first ride! Unlike a traditional taxi service, Uber is unique as the entire process from request to payment occurs with their mobile app. You no longer have to call a taxi service, rely on an inaccurate estimated time of arrival or worry about having cash if the taxi is not equipped with a credit card machine. At the end of an Uber trip, all you have to do is hop out of the car. Once the ride is complete, a detailed receipt will be waiting in your email inbox. The total cost is broken down in an easy to read format, a benefit for those turning in their receipt with an expense report.
Have any questions about how to use the app? This handy video below will explain the entire Uber process.
If you are a first-time Uber rider, sign up today and earn $15 off your next ride. You’ll never want to ride with a taxi again!
