Synchrony Financial was recognized with three awards at the 8th annual Loyalty 360 Expo in Orlando, Fla. for its Sam’s Club 5-3-1 cash back credit card program. Synchrony also inked a long-term agreement with Stash Hotel Rewards to provide a co-branded credit card program.
The Sam’s Club program, featuring a co-branded MasterCard won a silver award in the Customer Experience & Engagement category; a bronze award in the Creative Campaign category and a silver in the 360 Degree Loyalty Award for Excellence in North America.
The Sam’s Club 5-3-1 cash back program had been a finalist in a field of more than 60 brands that included some of the most valuable and recognizable consumer packaged goods, retail, travel, hospitality, restaurant and financial services companies in the world. Loyalty 360’s judges narrowed the highly competitive field down to a short list of finalists and announced the winners today at an awards luncheon.
Meanwhile, Synchrony announced a long-term agreement with Stash Hotel Rewards to provide a co-branded credit card program to Stash Hotel Rewards members.
Stash Hotel Rewards is an award-winning loyalty program for independent hotels in the U.S. and Caribbean. Stash provides travelers with the opportunity to earn points for free nights when they stay at any of the over 150 one-of-a-kind hotels including landmark historic hotels, top-rated resorts and distinctive business-class properties.
With the new Stash co-branded credit card, members can accumulate points even faster. In addition to the points earned by staying at a property in the Stash program, cardholders will also receive additional Stash points through their qualifying everyday spend. The points can be redeemed for free nights at any Stash partner hotel. Stash points never expire, and redemption is simple, without blackout dates or category.
