Beyond the Transaction: Every Transaction Has a Story

Embrace the Season of Giving Even If It’s Last Minute

‘Tis the season to be jolly and not get caught up in the holiday folly. No matter how hard you try, the dinner parties, food drives and holiday baking, can get the best of you and push shopping to the bottom of your to-do list. Listen, it’s okay if you don’t have enough time to make your list and check it twice, we all need a holiday boost to get through the chaos of holiday shopping and focus on the joy of giving – even if it’s last minute.

Give the Gift of Experience

Just because you weren’t able to grab this season’s must-have stuffed animals before they flew off the shelves doesn’t mean you’re the Grinch that stole Christmas. You can still bring joy to your loved ones with the gift of a Priceless one-of-a-kind experience in one of Mastercard’s Priceless Cities. Who says gifts have to come in a box? Create unique memories in more than 40 cities around the world that will make any last-minute gift last a lifetime of memories, certainly longer than it takes this year’s trending toy to break out of the box!

Keep the Jingle in the Holidays and out of Your Wallet

Do you continue to hesitate and push aside buying gifts because you just don’t know what to get? If all ideas fail or you simply run out of time, a Mastercard prepaid card (available at merchants and banks all over the US and Canada) is always a safe bet. A prepaid card lets the recipient pick something off their wish list and thank you for making it come true. Trust us, they will be happy you put the power of purchasing in their hands.

Stay Merry and Shop on

Just because you’re making last-minute purchases doesn’t mean you’re on the naughty list and should be held responsible for unauthorized transactions. Enjoy peace of mind this hectic holiday season knowing that every purchase you make is protected by Zero Liability, no matter which Mastercard you use. Sometimes finding the perfect gift takes time, so if you’re buying it last-minute over the phone, online or via a mobile device, you know your data and account information are secure and protected.
