Mastercard And BJ’s To Offer A ‘Priceless’ Boston Experience

BJs And Mastercard Offer Boston Package

Boston doesn’t quite make it into the top tier of U.S. cities, like New York, L.A. and Chicago, but what it does offer in history, culture and sports draws tourists from across the country.

New England likes to take care of its own, though, and Mastercard and BJ’s are doing what they can to make that happen.

The credit card company and retail wholesaler announced on Tuesday (Aug. 2) that they are running a contest to reward shoppers who pay with Mastercard credit, debit or prepaid cards at BJ’s locations in Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts.

The prize? A “Priceless Boston” experience that includes an all-frills tour of Fenway Park (and tickets to that night’s game), a NASA astronaut-led session at the Museum of Science and a fishing trip with head chef Ken Oringer from the Toro restaurant.

“We’re excited to partner with Mastercard to bring some very lucky BJ’s members exclusive access to incredible experiences in Boston,” Bari Harlam, executive vice president of marketing and membership at BJ’s, said in a statement. “It’s a pleasure to have the opportunity to work together to engage our members with unique opportunities beyond our co-brand partnership.”

Maripi Jalandoni, EVP of U.S. marketing at Mastercard, added that, thanks to the partnership, “Mastercard is the key to unlocking priceless experiences, like meeting your favorite Red Sox player or getting cooking tips from a world-class chef.”
