After a series of recent enhancements and new brand partnership campaigns, Preferred Hotel Group – which operates Preferred Hotels & Resorts & the newly launched Beyond Green – has introduced further updates to its I Prefer Hotel Rewards loyalty program.
From a new “Stay, Reward, Repeat” (northern) summer offer to a series of new biddable travel experiences through I Prefer Auctions, these program enhancements demonstrate Preferred’s commitment to offering the most rewarding, locally authentic travel experiences to its loyal and discerning I Prefer members.
Loyalty Status and Points Extension
The points expiration date for all I Prefer members has been further extended from 30 June 2021, to 17 December 2021, with I Prefer Elite members maintaining their status through 30 June 2022.
