MasterCard and Stefani joined forces in December 2014 and have been surprising cardholders across the U.S. with everything from show tickets to the opportunity to spend the day with Gwen herself. The payment technology company debuted an ad with the singer featuring her song, Spark The Fire. The spot exemplifies what the MasterCard platform is about: surprising cardholders with unbelievable experiences while also inspiring them to give and share their own Priceless Surprises whether they’re paying with traditional credit, debit or prepaid cards or using innovative mobile payment options.

“Working with MasterCard to surprise my fans and deliver something truly unique and unpredictable has been a really special part of this year,” said Stefani. “I look forward to another amazing experience on stage in New York.”

“The Priceless campaign has evolved over time—from celebrating priceless moments and enabling priceless experiences, to providing Priceless Surprises across our cardholders’ passions, whether that be travel, sports, arts or culinary,” said Raja Rajamannar, chief marketing officer, MasterCard. “Working with premiere artists like Gwen Stefani helps us deliver the unexpected for those who are passionate about music.”
