Chase Sapphire announced on Monday that for the third year in a row, they are offering cardholders special packages to attend the Sundance Film Festival in Park City this January. Customers can get to the star-studded film festival three ways: by winning Chase’s VIP sweepstakes, cashing in Ultimate Rewards Points for a getaway package or simply buying one of the seven special vacation packages offered by Chase.
Sean O’Reilly, general manager of JP Morgan & Chase Sapphire, said in the press release announcing the prize packages, “We’ve had a tremendous response to our Sundance Film Festival experience packages in the past two festivals, and this year we’re expanding the number of packages to provide even more options for our cardholder to enjoy the Festival. We have created a number of unique packages for our cardholders that provide exclusive access and top-tier accommodations.”
Seven Great Packages
There are limited quantities of the seven different packages created by Chase this year, with certain packages limited to seven customers, others to three and one package open to sixteen cardholders. Most packages feature accommodations at Hotel Park City, tickets to screenings, VIP credentials giving access to official Festival venues like Sundance House, Filmmaker Lodge, New Frontier and Sundance ASCAP Music Café. Many also offer tickets to a special Chase Sapphire Cardholder reception and gift bag.
“We know many Chase Sapphire cardholders are passionate about film and travel, so these unique packages are designed to make it easy to book an unforgettable Sundance Film Festival trip,” said Chase’s O’Reilly.
The packages range in price from $300 to $4,000 – or if paying with Ultimate Reward Points, 30,000 points to 400,000 points. Packages will go on sale October 9th at www.chasesapphire.com/sundance, and the Sundance Film Festival is scheduled to run January 17-21, 2013 in Park City, Utah.
Enter to Win
For Chase customers who would rather try their luck in a sweepstakes than pay cash or use Ultimate Reward Points, entry in the VIP Sweepstakes is free, and now until September 30, Chase Sapphire cardholders can go to sundance.chasesapphiresweepstakes.com and enter to win. “The VIP sweepstakes offers Chase Sapphire cardholders an opportunity to win access to the Sundance Film Festival,” said O’Reilly.
The VIP prize package allows people to attend the opening weekend of the Sundance Film Festival and includes airfare for two, round-trip, four nights at the luxurious Hotel Park City, two tickets to a screening and party on the first day, two passes to the Sundance House, Filmmaker Lodge, New Frontier, and Sundance ASCAP Music Café.
Rewards Credit Cards with VIP Offers
Chase Sapphire isn’t the only rewards credit card to offer its members unique and exclusive opportunities at the events they sponsor. American Express cardholders get many opportunities to have VIP treatment, everywhere from the US Open tennis tournament to the TriBeCa Film Festival, and Citi cardholders have access to the Citi Private Pass program, which gives anyone who has a Citi credit card the ability to buy tickets to private concerts, exclusive tours and classes, and sporting events.
Sweepstakes and VIP perks are only one of the many rewards that savvy credit card customers can have access to when they carry the credit card that’s right for them and also offers great reward value.
