I don't know if this is news to anyone but it was to me.

I just had my first SPG stay for this year, it was an award stay and I got an email that I've completed my qualifying stay to earn Starpoints with Uber.

I got double points for using Uber while staying at a SPG property even on a ride I took 9 hours after I checked out from the hotel.
I like vanilla but my name is Venilla.

Got this email a while back.

I don't sin, I give myself opportunities to repent.

My point was that 1. An award stay counted towards the eligible stay. 2. I got triple Starpoints for all the Ubers I took that day even after checkout.

When getting bonus SPG points for taking an Uber during your stay, are they strict with time of checkout? Meaning, if I checkout in the morning and take an Uber later in the afternoon, will I still get 2 pts per dollar or does the system realize that I already checked out?

My point wasn't that you should ask in this thread... I was trying to link you to my post here, a few posts back...

Ah, ok. Missed that. Now I see it. Thanks.

What about on the day of check-in but before you actually checked in? Any data point?

They aren't linked. I've checked out of CLE at 6 AM and taken an uber from NYC to my house at 11PM and have gotten the  bonus. Same thing about before stay.

Now I know why you were so eager to use your Uber account in CLE  :P
