Chase Launches New Disney’s Premier Visa Card
For years, Disney fans have been able to earn valuable rewards for their Disney vacations with the Disney Visa Credit Card from Chase. This week, Disney and Chase announced a new upgrade to the popular credit card that both new and current card holders are sure to be excited about. The Disney’s Premier Visa Card will give card holders the chance to earn rewards faster, use their rewards for airfare for the first time, and have access to special cardmember-only benefits.
With the Premier card, card holders will be able to earn 2% in Disney Dream Reward Dollars on card purchases at restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, Disney Stores, and at most locations in Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and Disney Cruise Line. On all other purchases, cardmembers will earn 1% in Reward Dollars.
“We developed Disney’s Premier Visa Card with one simple objective in mind – to deliver what Disney’s customers told us was most important in a rewards credit card – earning rewards faster,” said Robert Belan, General Manager, Chase Card Services. “The ability to earn 2% on every day card purchases – specifically at restaurants, gas stations and grocery stores – was a key theme from our research and we’re pleased to offer that as a benefit on this new card.”
Another change with the Premier card will be the ability to use these Reward Dollars on airline travel, by using their card to pay for airfare and then redeeming reward dollars for a credit on their monthly statement. These Reward Dollars can be used with any airline and destination, and has no block-out dates. Card holders will also be able to use their Reward Dollars on Disney hotel stays, Theme Park tickets, cruises, movie tickets and merchandise.
“Since we first launched the Disney Rewards® Visa Card in 2003, our priority has been providing a rewards program our customers can really use – including a huge variety of rewards and easy, flexible redemption,” said Jennifer Cohen, Senior Vice President of Customer Relationship Management for The Walt Disney Company. “For example, we have never had block-out dates and Cardmembers can redeem toward just about anything Disney from Theme Park tickets, hotel stays, dining and cruises to toys, apparel, movies, games, books and more. Offering more rewards on everyday purchases and the option to redeem toward Disney or airline travel are two more features intended to deliver on the Disney promise of high quality at good value.”
Card holders are also able to enjoy special perks when visiting Walt Disney World and Disneyland, including special character meet-and-greet opportunities, in addition to special savings. For a full list of cardmember perks, visit www.DisneyVisaPerks.com.
