Cendant Business Services has added a rewards component to its commercial cards program.
Corporate employees who use the MasterCard-branded Cendant card for travel and entertainment can earn points toward airline tickets and discounts at Cendant companies, which include Avis Rent A Car, Ramada Hotels, and Days Inn.
Companies using Cendant cards can also select vendors-including fuel companies, hotels, and restaurants-where their workers can earn bonus points.
"We've designed the Cendant rewards program to benefit both the company and the card holder," said William Brooks, general manager of Cendant Business Services. "When cardholders spend company money at the preferred suppliers designated by their companies, the company increases volume leverage with those suppliers, and the card holder gets valuable, attainable benefits."
Each dollar spent at a designated vendor translates into a rewards point; 10,000 points earn a $200 discount at certain Cendant hotels and car rentals, and 150,000 points earn a coach class airline ticket around the world.
