The lifestyle platform is now available to all Mastercard cardholders, providing access to curated priceless experiences across the country’s most popular cultural sites.
Mastercard introduced its flagship lifestyle platform, priceless.com, at a launch party in Tel Aviv-Jaffa. Curated for all Mastercard cardholders, priceless.com brings families and friends together for once-in-a-lifetime moments and multisensory experiences found in Israel, built around universal passions, such as cuisine, arts & culture, music and sports.
Israel is the latest destination to join Mastercard’s award-winning platform, spanning North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Africa and more. At launch, Mastercard cardholders will have exclusive access to immersive experiences celebrating the unique culture and history of Israel — a culinary adventure of the popular Hatikva market, a fascinating tour along the alleys of Jerusalem, an exhilarating street art tour in Tel Aviv, a wine tasting in the Northern Galilee, and “behind the scenes” VIP tour of the Uri Geller Museum, led by the world-famous psychic himself, among others. Digital yoga classes at the Dead Sea and Ein Gedi are also available.
“Priceless.com brings people together for bespoke moments built around their universal passions,” said Raja Rajamannar, chief marketing and communications officer, Mastercard. “By creating these experiences, we have been able to build stronger, more memorable and longer lasting connections with our consumers, and we’re delighted to add Israel to the 35-plus destinations available on priceless.com.”
As part of the launch, Mastercard created a new song in collaboration with artist Ofir Kothiel, known as Kutiman. The local sonic track includes audio and video based on Mastercard’s unique sonic DNA. The track consisting of different sounds and scenes embodying Israel’s identity includes live sounds and scenes recorded from real life and orchestrated to a music track. The track can be found on YouTube: The Sounds of Israel
