Rewards for Clients Can Be Bigger Award for AgentsWhile there are many programs such as Sandals' STAR Awards that recognize agents' achievements in selling a particular property, many hotels also offer rewards for consumers who show some loyalty as well. And those rewards to guests can only lead to more business for agents. Here are just a few such programs:Couples Resorts' Returning Guest Rewards ProgramCouples Resorts has a guest rewards program, "Romance Rewards." The program is simple -- 50 Romance Rewards points are awarded per couple for each night of their stay. Those points (10 Romance Rewards points are equivalent to $1) can then be used at check-out to pay for many of the things that a couple charges to the room, including spa and salon services, PADI scuba certification and extra dives, phone charges, gift shop purchases and room category upgrades. Guests sign up for an account online at www.couples.com/romancerewards and are ready to immediately start earning Romance Rewards points towards their next visit.Hyatt's Gold PassportThe Hyatt Gold Passport, the global frequent guest program for Hyatt Hotels & Resorts®, Hyatt Place and Hyatt Summerfield Suites, began in 1987 and is available at all Park Hyatt, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency, Hyatt Place and Hyatt Summerfield Suites locations worldwide.
