| Credit Card Companies Offer Unique Experiences as Rewards
U.S. News & World Report - Washington, DC, USA
- In an effort to compete in a crowded market, credit card companies are moving beyond tangible rewards–such as airline tickets and gift certificates–when trying to appeal to their wealthier customers. Now it's all about experiences. Visa offers customers the chance to hobnob with rock stars like Elvis Costello
and NFL draftees, American Express sends clients up into space on suborbital jets, and MasterCard invites people to name the experience they want the company to arrange.
"These experiential rewards are becoming more and more popular," says Kelvin Taylor,
president of Maritz Loyalty Marketing, which works with card companies on their rewards programs.
