Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide and Uber are putting travellers in the hot seat for a new strategic partnership. The tie-up will give Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) members the chance to earn “Starpoints” when they ride with Uber – anywhere worldwide.
Members must link their existing SPG and Uber accounts at spg.com/uber before completing one qualifying stay in the calendar year at any Starwood hotel. Then SPG members riding with Uber can simply sit back, enjoy the ride, and watch their points add up.
All SPG members will earn one Starpoint for every $1 USD spent on Uber rides—with bonus earning awarded while in-stay. For more information and full details, visit spg.com/uberterms.
The brands are also invited guests and riders to “jumpstart” their so-called #SuiteRide this weekend, offering 15,000 Starpoints for linking the accounts on Saturday February 28 and taking a ride in an “SPG Uber – available in Dubai, London, Mexico City, New York, and San Francisco from 2 pm – 7 pm local time.
“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 Starwood CEO Adam Aron.
“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."
