Barclays and Priceline today announced the new Priceline VIP Rewards(TM) Visa(R) Card program, which provides cardmembers automatic Priceline VIP Gold Status and more ways to earn points to get closer to the next extraordinary trip, all with no annual fee. Cardmembers earn 5X points for every $1 spent on Priceline bookings; 2X points on gas and restaurant purchases including delivery services; and 1X points on all other purchases. New cardmembers also earn 10,000 bonus points after spending $1,000 on purchases in the first 90 days when applying through pricelinevisa.com.
Priceline's mission is to be the best travel dealmaker in the world. The reimagined Priceline VIP Rewards Visa Card makes getting great deals even easier by rewarding cardmembers for anything they book on Priceline and with more points for everyday purchases.
Priceline VIP Rewards Visa cardmembers are also automatically granted Priceline VIP Gold Status, which includes exclusive hotel savings, add-on deals when booking through Priceline, rental car discounts and more. Cardmembers can also redeem points for statement credits to use toward card purchases or select a variety of gift cards or merchandise.
"Priceline continues to prove it's possible to get more - more travel deals, more rewards, more benefits - out of everything you do with the new Priceline VIP Rewards Visa Card," said Denise Bialek, Senior Director of Ancillary Products, Priceline. "We're giving our customers something that few travel cards can deliver - rewards on anything you book on Priceline, even Pay Later rates when the hotel or rental car supplier are paid directly. That, along with automatic VIP Gold Status, makes it easy for deal-seekers to get to their next trip faster."
Cardmembers have the choice of two card designs: a Priceline-branded card or a version that features the iconic Priceline Negotiator William Shatner.
The Priceline VIP Rewards Visa Card has no annual fee and includes the following benefits:
