Tuesday 20 September 2022 14:50 CET | News

UK-based multinational banking player Barclays has partnered with online travel deals provider Priceline to launch the loyalty feature PricePoints of the Priceline VIP Rewards Visa card.


To help cardmembers accrue points for their travels quickly this redemption feature enables them to earn 5x points for every USD 1 spent when booking on Priceline, even when redeeming points.

To use PricePoints, Cardmembers can select ‘Redeem Points’ and choose the number of points to redeem (USD 1 = 100 points). Cardmembers will be charged for the full ‘Pay Now’ amount at time of booking on Priceline, earning 5x points for every USD 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 Priceline VIP Rewards Visa Cardmembers, enabling them to turn today's trip into tomorrow's travel. Company officials believe this concept will resonate with consumers who are seeking easy, economical, and faster ways to travel and relax.
