MasterCard’s Major League Baseball Play

MasterCard is offering a paid trip to the 2016 MLB All-Star game to the winners of a sweepstake in which customers automatically get enrolled if they shop with at Petco in-store or online between now and June 10.

Some Petco customers might get a lot more than what they pay for when they shop at the pet store with their MasterCard credit or debit card.

MasterCard is offering a paid trip to the 2016 MLB All-Star Game to the winners of a sweepstakes in which customers automatically get enrolled if they shop with their MasterCard at Petco in-store or online between now and June 10. Only one entry will be counted for every eligible purchase, MasterCard said in a statement.

“For baseball fans, attending the All-Star Game is the ultimate experience,” said Raja Rajamannar, chief marketing and communications officer for MasterCard. “That’s why we are thrilled to offer this exclusive opportunity — to head to San Diego and see today’s best players in action — to Petco customers and MasterCard cardholders.”

Two winners will be awarded a four-day, three-night trip for them and a guest to the All-Star-Game. The award also includes round-trip air transportation, hotel accommodations for three nights, two tickets to one day of the 2016 MLB All-Star FanFest event and the 2016 T-Mobile Home Run Derby and one $250 MasterCard prepaid card.

“We’re excited to partner with MasterCard to bring some very lucky Petco customers to this year’s Midsummer Classic at Petco Park,” said Jim Myers, Petco’s chairman and CEO. “There’s nothing quite like experiencing the All-Star Game in-person, especially here in San Diego, and we’re looking forward to this year’s festivities.”
