If you are a frequent user of Priceline for your travel planning and reservations, the Priceline Rewards Visa credit card might make sense for you. Our overview / review of the card is below:
The Priceline credit card offers reward points with every purchase. You get:
- 5 points per dollar on purchases at Priceline.com
- 1 point per dollar on everything else you buy with the card
In addition, you get 5,000 bonus points after you use the card for the first time.
Points can be used like cash that you can use as statement credits. While Priceline does not specifically state the value of its points online, it appears that each point equals one penny, which is a regular standard in the industry. So, for example, you could use 5,000 points to get a $50 statement credit.
There is no annual fee for the Priceline credit card, which is issued in partnership with Barclays Bank. The interest rate may be 15.24%, 20.24%, or 25.24%, depending on your credit history.
Overall, we consider the Priceline credit card to be a good rewards card if you are already a regular Priceline user, though its interest rate could negate the rewards you receive from the card if you every carry a balance. So, watch out, especially if you don’t have the best credit history.
You can apply for the Priceline credit card via this online application.
