The first business credit card offered by a hotel rewards program hit the scene this week. The ‘Priority Club Worldwide Business VISA’, offered by Bass Hotels & Resorts and First USA, allows each company employee cardholder to earn points for free hotel nights, frequent flyer miles, merchandise and shopping rewards. The new card program also offers small business owners the opportunity to harness the financial leverage of quarterly management reports, consolidated billing statements to track company cardholders’ spending, and discounts on business products and services. Bass owns Inter-Continental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express and Staybridge Suites by Holiday Inn. Cardholders receive one ‘Priority Club’ point for every U.S. dollar spent on purchases and an additional 5,000 bonus points with their first purchase or balance transfer. The no-annual-fee card carries a 3.9% fixed APR on purchases and balance transfers for the first five months, followed by a fixed 9.99% annual percentage rate. The card also features a credit line up to $35,000. The new Priority Club Worldwide Business VISA is available by calling toll-free 1-800-234-9063. Enrollment in Priority Club is free and guests may enroll at any Bass Hotels & Resorts property, on the Internet at www.priorityclub.com or by calling 1-800-272-9273 in the United States or Canada.
