Mastercard has announced changes to some perks of the network’s premium credit cards. The company revealed changes to its World Mastercard and World Elite Mastercard products, introducing new benefits that include DoorDash and HelloFresh.
Mastercard Adds Benefits to World and World Elite Mastercard Products
Mastercard World and World Elite cardholders have some new features on their credit cards – effective April 1, 2021. The second-largest payment network globally, trailing only Visa, already offers basic protections for all credit cardholders, including Zero Fraud Liability and ID Theft Protection. Select cardholders, however, receive even more value with their Mastercard.
World and World Elite Mastercards enjoy various perks, thereby making them enhanced offerings when compared to “standard” Mastercard products. However, annual fees from the issuing banks often accompany these benefits. World Mastercard and World Elite Mastercard benefits include complimentary ShopRunner memberships, cell phone protection, and Mastercard Global Concierge assistance.
What Are the New Mastercard Benefits?
Mastercard is adding new benefits for its premium Mastercard products. Effective April 1, 2021, World Mastercard and World Elite Mastercard holders enjoy the following added perks:
- DoorDash: For existing DashPass members – Automatic $5 discount on their first 2 DashPass orders each month. For new DashPass members – free 3-month DashPass membership.
- HelloFresh: 5% back on all HelloFresh purchases (excluding taxes, discounts, delivery fees, and credits) made with a World Mastercard, to be used on future purchases.
- Lyft: $5 in Lyft credit for every three rides taken in a calendar month with a World Mastercard that will automatically be applied to the next ride, capped at once per month (details apply).
The addition of new HelloFresh and DoorDash benefits to Mastercard coincides with removing two existing benefits. Previously, World and World Elite cardholders enjoyed 10% discounts when booking stays through onefinestay.com. They also enjoyed a complimentary two-month Instacart Express trial. Both benefits ended as of April 1.
What Credit Cards Are World or World Elite Mastercard Products?
Because Mastercard is the world’s second-largest payment network, thousands of credit cards are available to U.S. consumers that bear the Mastercard name. Many premium credit cards – those which feature an annual fee and offer superior rewards – carry the World or World Elite branding.
Some of the best examples of premium World or World Elite Mastercard’s include the Grand Reserve™ World Mastercard® (our top choice for wine lovers), the Air France KLM World Elite Mastercard®, and the ultra-premium credit card lineup from Luxury Card: the Mastercard® Black Card™, the Mastercard® Gold Card™, and the Mastercard® Titanium Card™.
