Select World Elite Mastercard Promises Big Discounts for $450 Annual Fee
Luxury membership community Select has announced the coming launch of the Select World Elite Mastercard. This is a credit card with a $450 annual fee that promises big discounts at fancy restaurants, hotels and more.
The new Select credit card will combine Select’s network of exclusive member benefits, an uncapped 2% cash back across most spend categories, and World Elite Mastercard® benefits.
It says 2% in “most categories” because grocery and service industries purchases only earn 1% and payments toward utilities do not earn cash back rewards.
The $450 annul fee is the same price you would pay for a Select membership which offers you pretty much the same benefits.
Current Select benefits include savings and perks at over a million premier partner locations across the globe. These include significant discounts (15-30%) or complimentary items at top-tier restaurants across the country, unpublished rates at hundreds of thousands of hotels and resorts (you need an account to see these rates) that reach as high as 60% off, and ongoing special offers with sought-after brands like BMW, Tumi, Lazzoni, Caraway, and many more.
Select also hosts a variety of members-only events in major US cities throughout the year and provides on-demand concierge services for members via the company’s app and website.
The card’s waitlist is now open and they will begin to allow prospective cardholders to apply for their invitation-only Beta beginning in February 2023. Invitations will be granted sequentially, but current Select members and prospective members who invite others to the waitlist will have priority.
