I just received an email from SPG that effective December 17, 2017 the ability to earn Starpoints through Uber will end. The note says they will not renew their partnership for 2018.
So, Insiders, what do we make of this? First plank removed in a strategy to undo the Starwood relationships? Is Amex next? Or, was this simply a partnership that didn’t work and/or was too costly?
I would love to get everyone’s take on what we think this portends for the future of the combined program.
