SPG members to earn points with Uber

26 Feb 2015 by Clement Huang

Members of the Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) program can now look forward to earning Starpoints whenever they ride with Uber, following a strategic partnership between the two companies.

This can now be done by linking existing SPG and Uber accounts at spg.com/uber. Following the completion of one qualifying stay during a calendar year at any Starwood hotel worldwide, SPG members can begin racking up points whenever they use Uber’s services. 

Points earned

Preferred: 2 Starpoints per US dollar spent during SPG stay; 1 Starpoint per US dollar spent any other day

Gold/Platinum: 3 Starpoints per US dollar spent during SPG stay; 1 Starpoint per US dollar spent any other day

Platinum with 75 nights qualifying stays: 4 Starpoints per US dollar spent during SPG stay; 1 Starpoint per US dollar spent any other day

“This new partnership with Uber accelerates our SPG members’ drive to rewards and is just one more way that Starwood is combining high tech and high touch to transform their travel experiences,” said Adam Aron, chief executive, Starwood Hotels & Resorts. “It is especially satisfying for us at Starwood to be partnering with a cutting edge and innovative pioneer like Uber. It is truly impressive to see how Uber has revolutionized transportation for the better.”

To commemorate the partnership between the two companies, SPG is offering a special one-day deal called “SPG #SuiteRide”. On Saturday, February 28, Uber riders who link their Starwood and Uber accounts can select the “SPG” vehicle option within the Uber app for a door-to-door branded hotel experience on wheels and 15,000 Starpoints – good for a free night at category 1-5 Starwood hotel.
