In honor of International Pineapple Day — did you know this was a thing? — Preferred Hotels is running a promotion where you can earn a ton of points after just booking 1 night at a property.
Here’s what you need to know!
Earn Enough Points for a Free Night With Just 1 Stay
For today only, people who book the “I Prefer Member Rate” at Preferred hotels will receive 27,000 bonus points, which is enough for a free night.
Guests must book directly through Preferred Hotels and use the rate code MKTIPM. You must be a valid I Prefer Member and travel must be completed by December 31, 2022.
Keep in mind that this offer can’t be combined with other promotions.
Unlike other promotions, there doesn’t seem to be a minimum spending requirement — and the site allows you to sort from the lowest priced hotel to the most expensive (and there are more than 500 hotels participating in the promotion worldwide).
This means that if you’re simply looking to book an affordable room to earn the 27,000 bonus points, you can find nightly rates for as low as $30 at properties such as the Kyoto Tokyu Hotel in Japan, $45 per night at the Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, or the Lancaster Bangkok for just $47 nightly.
How I Prefer Members Can Redeem Points
Preferred Hotels & Resorts is an upscale hotel brand that launched more than half a century ago. Underneath the Preferred Hotels umbrella are 5 individual brands: Connect, Legend, L.V.X., Lifestyle, and Preferred Residences.
Today, the chain has more than 700 locations in more than 80 countries.
While we don’t have valuations for Preferred Hotels & Resorts’ I Prefer program, 27,000 points can go a long way. You can redeem your points at 120 destinations.
The lowest options cost just 15,000 points a night, which — if you had an extra 3,000 points — could get you a 2-night stay at hotels across the globe such as:
- 100 Luxury Suites in Bogota, Colombia (15,000 points per night)
- President Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa (15,000 points per night)
- Salalah Gardens Hotel in Salalah, Oman (15,000 points per night)
Hot Tip: Make sure to book your hotel with a credit card that earns bonus points on travel purchases!
This is a really neat promotion, made even sweeter by the fact that you don’t need to spend an extraordinary amount of money to meet the terms. But if you want to take advantage of the deal, you shouldn’t wait as it expires after today!
