Would you get the priceline

Postby tanyasf » Wed Apr 24, 2013 1:58 am

here is the point : The priceline card has two version. both of have 5 point spent $1 on priceline. the old one has 2 point per everywhere per $1 spend. the new one earns 1 point per $1, plus the rewards is a little complicated. I think the old one may discontinue soon. i haven't bothered to apply it. Folks anyone go with this card or with Felidlity 2% AMEX ?

Thanks

I did find 2 cards.
So far Fidelity was the only card thats surviving the 2x.
All the old card programs that came with 2X did not survive for long time.

As I replied here, I pulled the trigger on the Priceline 2x card. Got it approved. Since its a visa with all over acceptance, I chose Priceline.
Also I do car rentals many times and the 2x points would definitely pay off.
No intention of buying any travel related purchases with this card.

Yup...but if you go to priceline.com and then look for the credit card..It shows the 2x points.
Historically many 2x cards have died soon but this may not happen soon with priceline visa.
