The Saturday Night Live MasterCard Comes To Town

“Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night” has taken on a new meaning with the launch of the SNL MasterCard, offering people quadruple points on every entertainment dollar spent on Saturdays, double points on other entertainment purchases, and one point on everything else. The card also includes access to Saturday Night Live tickets, as well as special SNL experiences and merchandise.

In keeping with the theme, SNL stars Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan are featured in a short video called SNL MasterCard: Your Dream Date AwaitsThis card is the end result of a partnership between NBC Universal Enterprises and Broadway Video Enterprises, MasterCard and Alliance Data Retail Services.

Getting the SNL treatment

People can apply for the SNL MasterCard on the website, and once approved if they spend $500 over the first six months they get an exclusive SNL leather wallet.  A personal concierge who can connect cardholders with exclusive discounts on shopping, travel, entertainment and dining out is also part of the SNL MasterCard experience.

As part of the celebration for SNL’s 40th season they have partnered up with retailers like Dinner Lab, comedy clubs, and Hulu Plus, to offer special discounts.

MasterCard Priceless Cities packages are also available to cardholders, which includes their ultimate SNL star trip. With this package fans get a pair of SNL tickets, as well as airfare to New York, a stay at a luxury hotel, and a personal shopping trip, which includes a trip to the hair salon.

Earning and redeeming

There are no limits to how many points cardholders can earn, but they must use them within 36 months of earning them. Points can be used toward SNL memorabilia, merchandise, gift certificates, and travel.

Points are not earned on cash advances, balance transfers, convenience checks, overdraft advances, travelers checks, foreign currency, unauthorized or fraudulent charges, purchases of money orders, or on fees of any kind.

In the near future they will be launching the SNL MasterCard mobile app, so cardholders can track the activity on their card. They will also be able to check out SNL trivia and discounts for local events and activities.

Broadway Video is an entertainment studio launched by Lorne Michaels the creator of  Saturday Night Live, and has produced a variety of shows including 30 Rock, and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Alliance Data Retail Services develops branded credit card programs.
