The Uber/SPG partnership has officially ended. You will no longer earn SPG points for travel with Uber.
The SPG journey with Uber is coming to an end on December 17, 2017. That will be the last day you can earn Starpoints for Uber rides. The partnership which has lasted for three years struggled recently when SPG cut the earning rates as of February 1, 2017. Until the partnership ends you will still be able to earn points at the following rates:
- 1 Starpoint per $1 spent when you are staying at an SPG property
- 1 Starpoint per $2 spent with Uber at other times
If you have noticed that points have not posted to your SPG account from recent rides, there is no need to worry. SPG has not jumped the gun; there is a minor IT glitch which should be sorted out soon.
The end of this partnership is a bit of a bummer, given how difficult in general it is to earn SPG points. Of all the Uber partnerships the one with SPG was by far the most valuable.
