Free Shipping by MasterCard is a rebate system that offers savings of up to $20 per two-day shipping charge, and up to $500 when cardholders use their MasterCard to purchase items at Best Buy, Kohl’s, Macy’s, QVC and Walmart.
MasterCard cardholders who register for Free Shipping can receive access to a complimentary six-month subscription. Consumers can upgrade to a premium version of the service for an annual fee of $69, according to a press announcement. Premium members can save up to $1,500 per year when they shop at the five complementary retailers, as well as 25 additional eTailers, such as 1-800-Flowers, JCPenney and Nordstrom.
“We continually look for ways to provide relevant and compelling value to our cardholders at great merchants, and by partnering with Clarus Marketing, we’re able to deliver that significant value and simplify their holiday experience,” said MasterCard SVP of Global Consumer Product Development, Anant Nambiar. Clarus Marketing collaborated with MasterCard to bring the free shipping initiative to market.
Because Free Shipping by MasterCard is currently a complementary service, enrollment is only available to a limited number of subscribers. All cardholders who subscribe are eligible to upgrade to the premium service.
