All kinds of new credit card technology is being introduced, including more mobile payment options. Credit card companies and payment networks are doing everything they can to get people to sign-up, in hopes of capturing more of your wallet share. For example, they hope that once you install a mobile payment option you’ll start using it regularly.
We see promotions encouraging people to try this new technology all the time. For example, this morning I wrote about how you can get a $20 Starbucks gift card for $10 using Visa Checkout.
Well, for those who prefer to earn points (or want to earn points in addition to other things), there’s yet another promotion, and you can actually stack the two.
Through September 24, 2017 (as long as supplies last), you can earn up to 1,000 bonus Marriott Rewards points when you sign-up for Visa Checkout and use it for the first time (unfortunately existing users aren’t eligible for this offer):
- Earn 500 Marriott Rewards points when you sign up for Visa Checkout through marriott.com
- Earn 500 Marriott Rewards points when you use Visa Checkout within 15 days of signing up (this doesn’t have to be for a Marriott purchase — any purchase qualifies)
To earn the points, be sure the email addresses on your Marriott Rewards and Visa Checkout accounts match. If eligible, bonus points should post within 6-8 weeks of the end of the promotion.
This is a super easy promotion that’s worth taking advantage of. Like I said above, you could sign-up for Visa Checkout through this promotion, then buy a $20 Starbucks gift card for $10 through the other promotion, and you’d receive a total of 1,000 Marriott Rewards points plus a $20 Starbucks gift card for $10. That’s quite a deal!
Of course this all assumes you don’t already have a Visa Checkout account.
Does anyone plan on taking advantage of this promotion?
