Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) has signed a new airline partner San Francisco based Virgin America.
SPG members can now redeem Starpoints to Virgin America Elevate points at 1:1 ratio including 5,000 bonus for every 20,000 transferred.

Remember that it makes sense to convert 20,000 Starpoints to airline miles at a time due to the 5,000 bonus added by SPG (20,000 Starpoints convert to 25,000 miles with most partners).
SPG has already added the Virgin America to the online airline miles redemption tool:
It is always good to have more partners that you can use or transfer your Starpoints to. It is bit ironic that the partnership was launched between two companies that both are being acquired (Starwood by Marriott and Virgin America by Alaska).
You can use Virgin America Elevate points also for flights on Virgin Australia, Virgin Atlantic, Emirates, Singapore Airlines and Hawaiian.
