Back in “the day,” SPG and Uber had a partnership where you’d earn in both programs for spend with either one. This ended in October of 2017.

Now, Marriott (which acquired SPG) is launching a similar – but different – program.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

Head to this page for instructions on linking your accounts. Once linked, you’ll earn Marriott Bonvoy for your Uber spend as follows:

The notable exclusion here is standard Uber rides with UberX. Which is a huge bummer.

However, I have been spending with Uber Eats month due to the new tie up on the Amex Gold card, so this will be bonus points on each order there. And while I generally use Lyft for rideshares (due to the 15% Lyft Pink discount and 10X Ultimate Rewards on my Chase Sapphire Reserve), I really always pick whichever costs less, and once in a while that’s Uber – though almost always an (excluded from this promo) UberX.

Extra bonus: Marriott Bonvoy members can earn 2,000 bonus points until May 31st, 2021. Simply link your accounts and complete a qualifying Uber Eats order or Uber ride to earn your bonus.

Oddly, there’s no Uber points earned for stays at Marriott hotel, so this seems to be a one way street…

yottaWhat is Yotta Savings?: The Yotta Savigs account is a really fun way to earn interest at a higher rate than Marcus while having some fun each night when the Yotta prize ball drops. Currently, the statistical odds imply a net savings rate of between around 1% and 3% - at a time when banks like Marcus are offering a paltry 0.5%. Plus, it's fun! | Read my review of Yotta.


I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
