I wrote yesterday about the new and really cool partnership between Uber car rides and Starwood Preferred Guest that will allow Uber users who have had at least one SPG stay in that calendar year to earn valuable SPG points for Uber rides.
You can read all about the new partnership and the ways to earn points here, but there is a cool new twist that can result in some lucky users getting 15,000 bonus points this weekend!
On Saturday, February 28th, Uber users who have linked their SPG accounts will be able to select the “SPG vehicle” option in the Uber app in Dubai, London, Mexico City, New York, and San Francisco, for a chance to catch a free SPG #SuiteRide between 2PM and 7PM local time.
Those super lucky riders will not only receive a free ride and special hotel amenities during the ride (Chris McGinnis from TravelSkills got coffee, breakfast sandwich, and free wine coupons on his ride!), but they will also receive 15,000 Starpoints! Rides are limited and are on a first come first serve basis and the terms indicate approximately 460 total SPG members will receive the 15k points promo across all five cities.
If I was going to be in one of those cities I would be sure to give it a shot on Saturday!
Here are the terms and conditions for the 15,000 point promo.
$30 Toward First Uber Ride for SPG Elites:
I also want to mention that the standard Uber referral sign-up link right now is for $20 toward your first ride, but in the terms for the 15k points promo I saw that SPG Platinum and SPG Gold Members receive $30 toward their first Uber ride using the code SPGUBERELITE, so be sure to use that if you are new to Uber and have SPG elite status!
Anyone going to try and win 15,000 SPG points on Saturday?!
Thanks to TravelSkills for sharing news and first hand experience with the SPG Suite Ride promo!
