New Wells Fargo Choice Privileges Mastercard Coming Soon
Choice Hotels revealed today a multi-year agreement with Wells Fargo and Mastercard to launch a new cobranded credit card program this spring.
The new collaboration will make Wells Fargo the official issuer and Mastercard the exclusive payments network of credit cards for the Choice Privileges loyalty program. Through the new offering, cardholders will enjoy the following benefits and features:
- 5x points on stays at participating Choice® hotels
- 3x points on purchases at gas stations, grocery stores, home improvement stores, and phone plans
- 1x points on other purchases
- Automatic Gold Elite Membership- 10 Elite night credits qualifying cardmembers for at least Gold level status each calendar year
- Cell Phone Protection
- Check out terms here, and the card should be available here for applications soon. But it’s reported that the card will have a 60,000 points bonus and no annual fee.
In addition to earning points on everyday purchases, Choice Privileges cardmembers will also enjoy World Elite Mastercard® benefits, which includes access to exclusive offers with select merchants, World Elite Concierge services, in addition to Mastercard’s Priceless Experiences®. The Choice Privileges Mastercard will also include advanced security features including Mastercard ID Theft Protection™, Zero Liability Protection and Global Services for emergency assistance.
Current Choice Privileges cardmembers will receive these new benefits and features starting on May 1, 2023, and new credit card applications will be accepted by that time. The new Choice Privileges Mastercard does not increase the annual percentage rate(s) or the amount of any fees applicable to converted customer accounts. Existing customers are currently being notified of the changes by mail.
Choice Privileges is Choice Hotels’ loyalty rewards program. Choice Privileges membership is free and offers a faster way to rewards, including a Your Extras welcome gift on weeknight stays consisting of a selection between bonus points, airline miles, credits for premium coffee or shared rides. Guests can also earn points redeemable for future reward stays at Choice-branded hotels, PENN Entertainment casino resorts and hotels and now at the Las Vegas hotel Circus Circus Hotel & Casino.
