GroundLink is a business traveler’s best friend — it’s an on-demand black car service with both a convenient app and website to book your pick-up. While it’s more expensive than Uber or Lyft, the drivers are excellent, cars are flawless and there’s always some water and phone chargers waiting for you. Most importantly, though, you’ll have excellent communication with your driver and an easy pick-up and drop-off.

If you use GroundLink often, we have some news you’re going to want to know about. We’re currently seeing a nice Amex Offer where you can get $25 (up to two times) after you spend $125. Those perks that we mentioned earlier obviously don’t come cheap, so this is a great way to save some serious cash on your next two rides.

Keep in mind that Amex Offers work as a credit on your bill, so you won’t see the discount reflected when you go to make your purchase. But fear not — it will appear later on your statement. The offer expires on April 3, so you’ll want to make sure you use it before then.

This particular Amex Offer is great timing for the mess that currently is LAX. The airport recently moved all ride-hailing pick-ups to its new “LAX-it” lot, a dedicated pickup space adjacent to Terminal 1 at the airport. Regardless of your arrival terminal, you now have to take a bus (or walk) to this lot if you want to use Uber or Lyft. Since then, things have gone from bad to worse, with some passengers reportedly waiting for more than an hour for their rides.

Since GroundLink cars (and Uber Black) are still able to pick up passengers at the curb, no matter the terminal, you can bypass the whole “LAX-it” lot and save yourself precious time by ordering one. Having this Amex Offer in your back pocket will help to sweeten the deal. Of course, if you’re targeted for this offer, you can also use it in any city that GroundLink operates in, not just Los Angeles.

As a reminder, all Amex cards have access to Amex Offers with targeted discounts and bonus-point earning offers. While they’re usually not massive, every little bit helps, right? And right now, three American Express cards are offering higher than usual welcome bonuses, including:

American Express® Green Card: For a limited-time, receive up to $100 in statement credits for purchases made directly with Away using your new card within the first 3 months of card membership.

(Offer expires 12/31/2019. Terms Apply.)
