After paying the bill at a Best Alpine Wellness Hotel, the 1% credit will be added to the Friends Club Card. In order for the credit to be applied, the cardholder must present his/her personal Friends Club card at the hotel or inform the hotel of his/her card number. A subsequent crediting of Friends Club cashback bonuses is only possible within 14 days after the end of the stay in question.
The credit will be credited with 1% cashback bonus for transactions made by the Friends Club member within the scope of his own overnight stay in the room booked by him. For rooms booked and billed by the cardholder himself/herself, but in which he/she does not stay overnight, the cardholder will receive a cashback bonus if the persons staying there are accompanying relatives of the cardholder. Only spouses/life partners, children and grandchildren as well as the cardholder's parents and siblings are considered dependents.
If the Friends Club Cardholder uses a value voucher of Best Alpine Wellness Hotels for payment or partial payment of his/her invoice, he/she will only receive the 1% credit on the remaining amount that was not paid with voucher. This also applies in the event that part of the invoice was paid with cashback - also in this case the cashback will be credited for the reduced amount. Likewise, the cashback bonus will not be granted on other discounts including wellness club discounts.
If the guest becomes a Friends Club member during the current stay, he/she will receive the 1% credit directly to the card upon invoice payment. Crediting of bonus points from stays in the Best Alpine Wellness Hotels, which resulted before the registration to the Friends Club, is excluded.
It is excluded to obtain partial invoices during a continuous stay and thus use the credit to balance the invoice during the same stay.
The accumulated credit may be given and transferred to other Friends Club members. To effect this, the cardholder must contact the Best Alpine Wellness Hotels head office at email@example.com or +43 5123 602 610. The accumulated credit will then be debited from the Friends Club card and credited to the Friends Club card of the gift recipient.
The credit expires after 5 years from the date of crediting if the cardholder does not receive another credit or make a redemption within this period.
Credits are not redeemable for cash.
