Starwood Hotels And MasterCard Offers You A Free Weekend Nights Promotion
Maldives Promotion House – Starwood Hotels & Resorts Asia Pacific and MasterCard Worldwide are once again bringing travelers closer to their dream vacation in Asia Pacific with their latest joint promotion.
This year, Starwood Preferred Guests® (SPG) and MasterCard will reward hardworking travelers with ‘Two Days of Happy’, where they can enjoy up to two free weekend nights (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) to relax and rejuvenate at their choice of Starwood hotel destinations across the Asia Pacific region.
With this initiative, SPG and MasterCard hope to give their members and cardholders another reason to travel and take a worthwhile vacation. ‘Two Days of Happy’ will translate into soaking up the sun on Koh Samui Island in Thailand, sipping signature cocktails by the beach in Hainan Island, or a romantic trip to Maldives, for their members and cardholders, although this is just a glimpse of what the campaign has to offer.
MasterCard cardholders who are SPG members can enjoy up to two free weekend nights (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) at over 100 participating Starwood Hotels & Resorts in Asia Pacific when they participate in the ‘Two Days of Happy’ campaign.
In order to be eligible for this promotion, guests who stay for a total of five nights at participating hotels from 29th November 2011 to 15th March 2012, and pay for their stay using a MasterCard card will qualify for their first free weekend night award. To earn the second free weekend night, the guest will only need to stay for another 4 nights at the participating hotels within the promotion period. MasterCard cardholders who are not a member of SPG can sign up for the SPG membership online for free.
“We are very happy to launch this rich offer, this year taking it to the next level by rewarding SPG members with not only one, but two free weekend nights at amazing Starwood Hotels & Resorts in Asia Pacific,” Senior Director of Loyalty & Partnership Marketing, Starwood Asia Pacific Hotels & Resorts, Javier Cedillo-Espin said.
“At MasterCard we are always looking for ways to make the lives of our cardholders easier and more rewarding by catering to their needs. This collaboration is aligned with our efforts to create greater value for MasterCard cardholders as we see increased travel interest amongst consumers in this part of the world,” Vice President of Market Development, Asia/Pacific, Middle East and Africa, MasterCard Worldwide, Nagesh Devata said.
To qualify for this privilege, MasterCard cardholders and SPG members must register, make their room reservations for their stays from 29th November to 15th March 2012 through www.spg.com/mastercard2days or via a Starwood Customer Contact Center by mentioning “I want to register for Two Days of Happy”, or the registration code ‘4MC’, and pay for their stays using a MasterCard card. Upon successful registration, guests will earn their first free weekend night after their stays for a total of five nights at any participating Starwood Hotels & Resorts, and earn the second night after their stays for another four nights.
