[Expired] No more Starpoints for Uber from December 17

For the past couple of years, Starwood has had a partnership with Uber whereby you can earn Starpoints for spending with Uber. Earlier this year, SPG cut the rates at which you would earn points for Uber spend to just 1 Starpoint for ever $2 in spend. Unfortunately, the partnership will now come to an end altogether on December 17th. Today, SPG announced that the ability to earn Starpoints with Uber will end on December 17th, 2017 at 11:59pm…

For those reasons, members of Starwood Preferred Guest will be…
