Amex + Uber Partner To Relieve Holiday Stress

It’s old news that traveling during the holidays can be a massive headache. It’s crowded, there are long lines at TSA, and you might be faced with annoying flight delays. Today, American Express and Uber announced that they’re partnering to offer US Card Members some relief by offering 2 free rides home—up to $65/ride—from 11 different airports in the US through 12/31 (Sea-Tac is one of them!).

To redeem airport ride credits, Amex Card Members must begin their ride at one of the 11 airports listed below; then enter AMEXAIRPORT in the promotions tab on the Uber iOS or Android app before requesting a ride, and ensure they have selected their American Express card as their chosen method of payment. The $65 will automatically be taken off the total cost of the ride once the trip has ended. Amex Card Members can redeem this offer for up two eligible rides during the promotion period.

Saving up to $130 on rides from the airport is a huge savings, especially during some of the year’s two busiest travel holidays.

Eligible rides must originate at one of the following airports:

  • New York: EWR, LGA and JFK
  • Chicago: ORD and MDW
  • Washington D.C.: DCA, IAD
  • Boston: BOS
  • Houston: IAH
  • Seattle: SEA
  • Las Vegas: LAS

Prepaid cards are not eligible. For more information on the American Express free airport Uber ride offer and to see full terms, go to
