So many folks were curious if the 2 stays and 5 nights that you earn from the Starwood personal (Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express) or business (Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card from American Express) card counted towards the stay requirement.
View From the Wing reports that the credit for 2 stays you get by having the Starwood AMEX card will NOT count towards the requirement to earn points with Uber.
What Qualifies as a Starwood Stay to Earn Points With Uber?
Link: Uber (a free ride up to $20 for new users)
This is great news! So you can use Cash and Points at a Category 1 hotel like the Four Points by Sheraton Kansas City Airport. And then be eligible to earn Starwood points on your next Uber ride!
