Hear From Our Partners

“At Alo Moves, we’re passionate about inspiring mindful movement and meditation and making these practices accessible to everyone,” said Natasha Trindall, General Manager of Alo Moves. “Our exciting new partnership with Mastercard perfectly aligns with this mission by providing cardholders with exclusive benefits, like discounted Alo Moves memberships and additional loyalty program points, allowing us to empower a wider audience to embrace a holistic approach to well-being.”

“The healthcare landscape is more complex and costly than ever, and in today's challenging economic environment, one of the most important things a person can do to protect their wallet is proactively managing their medical bills,” said Scott Speranza, CEO of HealthLock. “Even so, managing medical bills is often easier said than done, and most folks simply don't have the time or resources to play phone tag with providers or sit on hold for hours. That's why we created HealthLock, which continuously monitors members' medical claims for potential medical overbilling, errors and fraud. Through our partnership with Mastercard, consumer and small business cardholders will have access to increased privacy, control and savings when it comes to their healthcare, ultimately freeing them to focus on what matters most: their well-being.”

“As any business owner knows, unplanned needs are inevitable. Instacart Business can give businesses that shop on Instacart a more flexible way to get the last-minute– and often, unexpected– items they need to keep things running,” said Andrew Nodes, Vice President and General Manager of Instacart Business and Supply Chain at Instacart. “We’re thrilled to offer eligible Mastercard business cardholders exclusive discounts on their next Instacart Business order–so if you're a coffee shop owner that runs out of oat milk halfway through the morning rush, an office manager that needs to stock up snacks and beverages when there’s an unexpected spike in office attendance or a restaurant owner and whose weekly avocado delivery from your supplier has been delayed– Mastercard and Instacart Business can help.”

“We are excited to make it even more rewarding for riders who use eligible Mastercard cardholders to unlock the best value for all their transportation needs,” said Zach Greenberger, EVP, Partner Ecosystem at Lyft. “Partnerships like this one give riders one more reason to choose Lyft when getting to the airport - making the whole travel experience even more seamless than ever before.”

“As the nation’s first theater subscription platform, we’re proud to announce a groundbreaking partnership with Mastercard and MoviePass by offering Mastercard customers exclusive access and substantial savings to all major movies, spanning across 99% of theaters nationwide,” said Stacy Spikes, CEO of MoviePass. “In North America alone, more than 200 million people go to the movies over one billion times a year, making movie-going the number one out-of-home entertainment activity. The partnership reinforces how much both brands understand the importance of spending time together with friends and family, and that special something that can only be experienced at the movies.”

"Day-guesting at hotel pools and amenities is a growing way that consumers are carving out more time for wellness in their hometowns and while they travel - we salute Mastercard’s commitment to helping cardholders live better lives,” said Michael Wolf, CEO of ResortPass.

"The collaboration with Mastercard is a great opportunity to further enhance the travel experiences of Mastercard cardholders,” says Cintia O Tavella Gomez, Head of Partnerships at “At, we are committed to providing seamless and memorable travel experiences and this partnership allows us to continue making it easier for everyone to experience the world in an easy and affordable way."
