At NerdWallet, we adhere to strict standards of editorial integrity to help you make decisions with confidence. Many or all of the products featured here are from our partners. Here’s how we make money.

The big draw of The Priceline Rewards™ Visa® Card is that it earns 5 points per dollar spent on eligible Priceline.com purchases. If you’re someone who enjoys using the discount travel site to book trips, this card could help you stretch your dollar even farther.

Eligible Priceline.com purchases include:

  • Cruises.
  • Name Your Own Price purchases.
  • Express Deal purchases.
  • Pay Now bookings.
  • Trip protection products.

In addition to those categories, the card earns 1 point per dollar spent on all other eligible purchases. New cardholders can also snag a 5,000-point bonus after their first purchase. Points are worth about 1 cent each.

Cardholders can earn 10% of their points back when they redeem them for credits used toward eligible Priceline.com or travel purchases of $25 or more made in the last 120 days. The card has no annual fee.

Anyone who isn’t already a Priceline.com power user might want to consider other cards with more versatility in their ability to earn and redeem rewards, such as a general travel rewards card.

Also consider: The Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card not only earns 2 miles per dollar spent on all eligible purchases, but it also earns 10 miles per dollar spent at Hotels.com. That allows cardholders to turn their purchases on that discount aggregator site into plenty of accumulated miles to put toward travel. Miles are worth about 1 cent each when redeemed for travel, and the card also comes with a sign-up bonus: Enjoy a one-time bonus of 50,000 miles once you spend $3,000 on purchases within 3 months from account opening, equal to $500 in travel. The annual fee is $0 for the first year, then $95.
