UPDATE: As of 2/1/17, 1 Starpoint per $2 spent on Uber and 2 Starpoints per dollar spent on Uber while you are staying at a Starwood hotel.
In more exciting news from Starwood, you can now earn 1 Starpoint for every U.S. dollar you spend with Uber® and earn even more Starpoints® during your stays with SPG®. When you are staying with Starwood, you will earn 2 points/$ if you are a Preferred member, 3 points/$ if you are Gold and a whopping 4 points/$ if you are Platinum. This is amazing news for me as I am a Platinum member with SPG. I stay with Starwood a lot during my weekly travels and use Uber to get around when I’m on the road so, I plan to use this promotion right away!
New Up To 4 SPG Points/$ With Uber Partnership
All you have to do is sign in and link your SPG and Uber accounts to start earning. You can read the terms and conditions on signing up here.
HERE’S HOW TO START EARNING:
- Sign in and link your SPG and Uber accounts.
- Complete one qualifying SPG stay this calendar year (have at least one stay credited for 2015 before you can earn.)
- Tap the Uber app, ride and start earning Starpoints.
*Once a member spends $10,000 U.S. dollars or its foreign equivalent on Uber rides in a calendar year they are no longer able to earn base or bonus Starpoints for Uber rides in that calendar year.
This is an easy way from me to build more SPG points with Uber. I ride with Uber several times a week, so I will rack up the points with this deal! Hope you will too!
If you are new to Uber, you can still sign up and get $20 off your first ride when you sign up though this link.
If you are short on SPG elite status, consider the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from Amex which gives 5 elite qualifying nights, and 2 stay credits just for having the card. The Platinum Card from American Express offers complimentary annual SPG Gold status just for having the card, so that is something else to consider.
