SPG to End Uber Partnership in December

Broken first on Flyer Talk, SPG will be ending it's partnership with Uber. Here's the statement:  "Since 2015 SPG® has partnered with Uber to offer members the opportunity to earn Starpoints® for rides, and we wanted to provide advance notice that this partnership is scheduled to come to an end on December 17, 2017. . . Members don’t need to take any action, Starpoints earned to date with Uber will not be affected and can still be earned through 11:59pm EST on December 17, 2017."

If you're bummed out about this, think about switching over to Lyft and earning Delta miles or JetBlue points with each dollar spent, depending on your preference. Of course, you could also look at the upcoming Uber credit card as well to try to get some value out of each ride.
