PURCHASE, NY– August 1, 2016 – Mastercard cardholders will have a chance to win a Priceless Boston experience when they use a Mastercard at participating BJ’s Wholesale Clubs, the company announced today. The promotion runs now through August 20, 2016.

To enter, cardholders simply have to use a Mastercard credit, debit or prepaid card at select BJ’s club locations in Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, or Massachusetts, and they will automatically be entered for a chance to win one of three Priceless Boston experiences or a $200 BJ’s gift card, compliments of Mastercard. The experiences include:

  • A Priceless day at Fenway Park that includes a Red Sox player meet-and-greet, a pre game tour, game tickets in the Right Field Roof Deck and one inning inside the Green Monster
  • A space exploration experience led by a former NASA astronaut in the Charles Hayden Planetarium at the Museum of Science
  • A “cook your catch” fishing trip adventure with award-winning Chef Ken Oringer with lunch and wine pairings at Boston’s acclaimed Toro restaurant to follow.

To help launch the promotion, Red Sox legend Tim Wakefield will make an appearance on Saturday, August 6 from 10:00AM-12:00PM at BJ’s Stoughton, MA club. Guests will have the opportunity to meet and take a picture with the legend.

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

Launched this spring, the Priceless Boston program brings consumers closer to their passions– dining, sports, shopping, arts and entertainment, and travel – through one-of-a-kind experiences and exclusive access to showcase the best Boston has to offer.

“Mastercard is the key to unlocking priceless experiences like meeting your favorite Red Sox player or getting cooking tips from a world-class chef,” said Maripi Jalandoni, executive vice president, U.S. Marketing. “With the sweepstakes launch, BJ’s members are now one step closer to accessing these amazing experiences.”

The My BJ’s Perks™ Mastercard is available to qualifying BJ’s Inner Circle, BJ’s Business and BJ’s Perks Rewards™ Members in the US through instant applications in-club or online.
