Introduction Image for: UBER & AMERICAN - FREE RIDE + BONUS

AAdvantage Members Enjoy VIP Treatment With a Free Uber Ride, Bonus Miles and Added Convenience!

Expiration Date – July 31, 2016

In February, American Airlines formed a partnership with Uber! This new partnership bestows the VIP treatment all around!

On March 1, 2016, AAdvantage Executive Platinum members will receive a special code to use with Uber for a free ride (up to $25). This free ride is for both new and existing Uber customers. And if you aren’t yet an Uber customer and don’t have Executive Platinum status with AAdvantage, you can also enjoy a free ride of up to $20. Simply sign up with Uber and enter promo code RIDEAA for $20 off your first ride.

Also, those with the AAdvantage Aviator MasterCard enjoy two AAdvantage miles for each dollar spent with Uber and charged to the card from February 7 through July 31, 2016. These AAdvantage bonus miles will accrue and will be credited in August.

And last but not least, all AAdvantage members have access to Uber’s Ride Reminder to schedule an Uber pick up. After booking your flight on, American will send you an e-ticket confirmation via email with a “Remind me to Uber” icon to schedule a ride. The Uber reminder service is currently available at these 11 airports:

  • Charlotte (CLT)

  • Chicago O’Hare (ORD)

  • Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW)

  • Los Angeles (LAX)

  • New York (JFK)

  • New York (LGA)

  • Philadelphia (PHL)

  • Phoenix (PHX)

  • San Francisco (SFO)

  • San Jose (SJC)

  • Washington (DCA)

The Wrap-Up:

Whether you are an AAdvantage member, hold an AAdvantage Aviator MasterCard or are just new to Uber - everyone wins! And AAdvantage members, remember to check out Uber’s Ride Reminder, where available, to schedule a curb-side pick up as soon as you walk out of the terminal.
