Barclays Priceline Card, Earn 5x Points Even When Redeeming Points for Travel
Barclays and Priceline today announced the launch of PricePoints, the newest feature of the Priceline VIP Rewards Visa Card. To help cardmembers accrue points for their travels as quickly as possible, this unique points redemption feature enables them to earn 5x points for every $1 spent when booking on Priceline, even when redeeming points.
“Priceline strives to use innovation to make the best deals available to customers. With PricePoints, we are bringing this vision to life through a game-changing credit card program that allows travelers to earn 5x points on all Priceline travel, even when redeeming points at the time of booking,” said Denise Bialek, Senior Director, Ancillary Products at Priceline. “PricePoints allows travelers to earn and redeem their rewards more rapidly with one of the richest point systems in the online travel industry.”
To use PricePoints, Cardmembers can select “Redeem Points” and choose the number of points to redeem ($1 = 100 points). Cardmembers will be charged for the full “Pay Now” amount at time of booking on Priceline, earning 5x points for every $1 spent, including the dollar value of the points redeemed. A statement credit for the point value will appear on the card account within 3-5 business days.
“PricePoints is designed to make the redemption process more rewarding and easier for our Priceline VIP Rewards Visa Cardmembers, enabling them to turn today’s trip into tomorrow’s travel,” said Bob Highland, Head of US Cards and Partnerships, Barclays. “We believe this is a powerful concept that will resonate strongly with consumers who are seeking easy, economical, and faster ways to travel and relax.”
