In-between shenanigans, Uber actually offers a pretty nice car service, and users are about to get a perk besides free water: points from chi-chi hotelier Starwood. Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) members can now link their accounts to Uber, and (after a qualifying stay), will get a point or more for every dollar spent on Uber. In addition, if you happen to catch a special SPG branded Uber car in select cities on February 28th between 2 and 7PM, the ride will be comped and you'll get 15,000 SPG points, enough for a free night. However, the promo is limited to 460 riders, and at that time of day, you could end up with an inflated surge fare instead of a free room.
