March 15, 2016 –Preferred Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest independent hotel brand, launches its first-ever global sweepstakes, the iPrefer Hotel Rewards Giveaway, which is open for entries now through April 8, 2016 on the iPrefer website. Timed for the introduction of new program benefits and an instant bonus points booking promotion, the four-week interactive sweepstakes will reward five winners with prizes ranging from $500 to $2,000 towards a future hotel experience of their choice – at any time, at any of the program’s more than 600 participating properties, and for as many stays as their prize will take them.
How It Works
From now to April 8, 2016, travel enthusiasts are encouraged to visit www.PreferredHotels.com/iPreferHotelSweeps to vote for which type of hotel experience they would most like to splurge on using their loyalty points. Travel themes range from adventure and beach travel to romance and solo travel. Zip lining through the rainforest or sipping margaritas on the beach? A European excursion with family or a romantic beachfront dinner for two? Participants choose how they would want to be rewarded for their loyalty to iPrefer.
Each week, participants can cast a vote to enter a weekly drawing that will award one member 250,000 points (US$500 Reward Certificate). One entry per participant per week will be allowed towards the four weekly prizes, and consumers can share their entry on social media (Facebook and Twitter) for an improved chance at winning. Regardless of the weekly win/lose outcome, all participants who enter at least once will be eligible to win a final grand prize of one million points (equivalent to US$2,000 in Reward Certificates), which will be announced on or about April 11, 2016.
Participants must be existing iPrefer members (or become members) to be eligible to win. The promotion is available to residents of the Continental United States, Canada (excluding Quebec), Hong Kong, Singapore, India, United Kingdom, Ireland, Mexico, Germany, and the United Arab Emirates.
With the program’s portfolio of more than 600 distinctive properties worldwide, all iPrefer members have access to endless authentic travel experiences that suit any travel need or desire, all while enjoying the benefits of a robust points-based loyalty program. From a snow excursion in the Swiss Alps at The Alpina Gstaad and a cultural adventure at The Imperial New Delhi, to an idyllic beach getaway at NIZUC in Cancun and a luxury business travel retreat at XV Beacon in Boston – iPrefer is the discerning traveler’s resource for an elevated loyalty program experience.
iPrefer in 2016
The iPrefer program has been revised and enriched for 2016, offering even more instant benefits to all members upon every stay. With a simplified structure featuring two tiers – Insider and Elite – members now earn 10 points per US$1 spent on eligible bookings, which can be exchanged for cash-value Reward Certificates redeemable towards free nights and other on-property experiences such as dining and spa at participating hotels, as well as other benefits like priority early check-in/late check-out and complimentary internet. New benefits introduced into the program this year include an upgrade upon availability for members at every tier and 50% bonus points earning for Elite members upon every eligible booking.
