As the year comes to an end, it is important to remember that you will only earn Starpoints on Uber if you have had a qualifying stay in the calendar year. If like me, you use Uber on a daily basis, it is best to get your stay in as early as possible in January 2016. You should definitely take advantage of the SPG® Take Two promotion which gives you double Starpoints® when you stay two nights or more (plus 250 bonus Starpoints for every night you stay at hotels in popular destinations, worldwide from 11 January 2016 to 30 April 2016.
Two qualifying nights at every participating Starwood hotel around the world will earn you double Starpoints but the following hotels in Singapore will give you a bonus of 250 extra Starpoints per night:
- Sheraton Towers Singapore
- The St. Regis Singapore
- The Westin Singapore
- W Singapore - Sentosa Cove
Considering how affordable the Sheraton Towers Singapore is on weekends, it may not be a bad idea for a mattress run to chalk up on points (especially if you need them!).
