Are there any benefits from a pre-filing use of the trademark?

It may demonstrate the acquired distinctiveness of the mark and help overcome an opposition to the application on the grounds of non-distinctiveness.

Pre-filing use of the mark is advantageous. The first person to use a mark obtains the ownership to such mark, even if other parties subsequently register it.
