BJ's, Barclays Launch BJ's Visa Card

08/24/2007
NATICK, Mass. -- BJ's Wholesale Club, Inc. here has joined with Wilmington, Del.-based global financial services provider Barclays to roll out the BJ's Visa Card. The card offers cardholders a quicker, more consumer-friendly way of earning BJ's Bucks, according to the company.

Additionally, BJ's Visa cardholders receive two points for every dollar spent on eligible BJ's purchases; one point for every dollar spent on all other purchases; 1,000 bonus points after their initial purchase, a $20 BJ's Bucks check, which can be used for purchases at the retailer, for every 2,000 points accumulated; the option to use their BJ's Visa Card as their BJ's Membership Card; and fast checkout via Visa payWave, Visa's contactless technology.

"We worked closely with BJ's to develop a card program for its members that would deliver greater value and convenience, including faster rewards accumulation, integrating the membership card with the credit card, and the addition of Visa's payWave contactless payments," said Chuck Moore, chief marketing officer, Barclays U.S. credit card business, in a statement. "By making the BJ's Visa Card a more rewarding and versatile card for consumers, we're helping the company build a stronger, more loyal member base while helping consumers save even more money at BJ's."

Barclays also plans to issue a business credit card for B's business members, beginning in January 2008.

Consumers can apply for the card at www.bjsvisa.com.

BJ's operates 175 clubs and 99 gas stations in 16 eastern states.
