Looks like the fun might be over. People who have tried to book Uber Eats with the $15 AmEx credit have been charged!! The credits are on the account, but are not used when booking food. Uber claims it is a fault of the system, but I am going to be the Debbie Downer and be the datapoint of showing that they may make it only for rides. Boooo! Here is what customer service says:
Your gift card can be the only payment method on your account, as long as your trip cost does not exceed the gift card balance. If you would like to add another payment method, you can tap the menu icon then “Payment.”

Be careful out there, don’t buy $120 worth of sushi, you might actually be paying for it! This problem has been reported in the Chicago market and the Washington DC area!
