If you have been enjoying earning additional SPG points for your everyday Uber rides, you will soon see those points 50% less! Effective February 1, 2017, Starwood is cutting earning rates on Uber rides by as much as 50%.
50% Less Starpoints on everyday Uber rides
Starwood announced the partnership with Uber in February 2015. Up until now, everyday you earn one Starpoint per $1 spent with Uber. During your stays with SPG, you’ll earn 2 to 4 Starpoints per $1 spent with Uber depending on your Starwood membership level. But that is changing starting February 1, 2017! You will soon earn 1 Starpoint per $2 spent with Uber every day, and 2 Starpoints per $1 spent with Uber during your stay at a SPG property.
Temporary Uber promotion for stays during February
While the new rates supposedly kick in on February 1, Starwood is offering a promotion for Uber rides during stays in the month of February. Instead of earning 2 Starpoints per $1 spent with Uber, you will earn 5 Starpoints.
LINKING SPG and Uber Accounts
