    Preferred Hotel Group, a global collection of independent hotels, is pleased to introduce its iPrefer points-based guest loyalty program. Complimentary to join, iPrefer rewards loyal travelers with points that can be exchanged for Reward Certificates redeemable like cash during stays at more than 450 one-of-a-kind participating hotels and resorts worldwide.

    "iPrefer is the first program of its kind that addresses the growing demands of today's travelers who want to enjoy the uniqueness of the independent hotel experience and be recognized for their choice through points and status," said Lindsey Ueberroth, President of Preferred Hotel Group. "With its global scope and flexible structure, iPrefer redefines how travelers should expect to be rewarded for their loyalty."

    iPrefer members earn one point for every dollar spent on eligible bookings at participating hotels. Once they have accumulated a qualifying balance of 2,500 points, members can exchange their points for Reward Certificates (starting value of $50) redeemable at every participating property. All participating hotels accept Reward Certificates towards payment for any hotel room booking, and some may also elect to allow them as payment for other on-property expenditures.

    While nice, don't like it. Seems that not all properties participate and the earn / burn ratio seems flimsy IMHO.

    Can you earn points on cheap rate stays or reservations made, for example, by AmEx PTS/CTS?

    Do points expire?
