Virgin Australia and Starwood team up – new promotion

To celebrate the new partnership between Velocity Frequent Flyer (Virgin Australia) and SPG – Starwood has a new promotion:

Earn 2,000 Bonus Starpoints on all 2 night stays at any Starwood hotel or resort in Asia Pacific region for booking by 31 March 2014.
Get at least 15% discount in restaurants and bars at participating venues in Australia.
– Transfer your Starpoints to Velocity Frequent Flyer at the rate of
1 Starpoint = 1 Velocity Point.

This is a great promotion if you have stays coming up in Asia-Pacific. 2,000 bonus points is usually the rewards for a successful BRG. YOu may be able to combine both bonus points. Many Starwood properties in Asia Pacific are cheap so a total of 4,000 bonus points per 2-night stay sound fantastic!
