Card members will enjoy exceptional benefits at Ritz-Carlton hotels, including upgrades to the club level for three stays per year; complimentary hotel experiences such as dining, spa and recreational activities (valued at US$100); and gold elite status in the Ritz-Carlton Rewards programme.
“The Ritz-Carlton Rewards Credit Card from JP Morgan is the only credit card that carries the Ritz-Carlton name,” said Herve Humler, president and chief operations officer (COO), the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. “As with the Ritz-Carlton Rewards programme, this new card offers ‘access to the extraordinary’. The extensive research we conducted with JP Morgan showed there is an appetite for a luxury card to reward our loyal customers and introduce the brand to many new potential guests.”
Other travel features include JP Morgan Premier Concierge Service, complimentary airport lounge access, and up to a US$200 airline incidental credit annually. The Ritz-Carlton Rewards Credit Card has no foreign transaction fees.
