First USA Bank and the Holiday Hospitality hotel chain have introduced the Priority Club Worldwide Platinum Visa credit card, a component of a multiyear Visa-Holiday promotion.
Cardholders earn points toward merchandise, air travel, and hotel stays at Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, and Holiday Inn Express.
The card has no annual fee and an introductory interest rate of 5.9% for six months, which then jumps to a fixed 14.99%.
Cardholders will receive one Priority Club point for each dollar of purchases on the card. A bonus of 2,500 points will be awarded if consumers apply for the card using a special toll-free number, and another 5,000 points when it is used for the first time.The resulting 7,500 points can be redeemed for a free night at Holiday Inn Express.
